An English-style Pale Ale. We chose to deliver this beer with a blended Nitrogen and CO2 gas mixture. This delivery method provides a smooth and silky texture to the mouth without compromising a balanced hop profile.

"a smooth solid flavorful yet unassuming interpretation of the style. pretty classic, with maybe a slightly bigger flavor and a touch more earthy hops than the usual."

orangesol (984) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Served on cask at Al’s of Hampden into a nonic pint.

A - Pours golden orange with a small pillow of half finger tall white head leaving light rings of lacing down the glass.

S - Smells of earthy hops with a touch of pine coming thru toward the end. Some lightly toasted caramel malt and a bit of bread help to keep things balanced.

T - Good amount of earthy hops up front slowly giving way to a mix of lightly toasted cereal malt and some lingering hop bitterness. The finish is just like the taste, with some lingering hop bitterness. This was good but I think it could have used a bit more citric hops. The earthy hops were good but they were a bit one dimensional. Still pretty good.

M - Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Smooth, creamy, feel throughout. A light mix of hop bitterness and dulled sweetness in the finish.

O - This was one easy drinking beer. It was simple yet enjoyable, with plenty of flavor. It could have used a bit of citrus but that is no big deal really. Good stuff.

BadAprilia1000 (379) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours a beautiful golden crisp clear color with a great, highly carbonated head. Aroma is hoppy, floral, grain, bread, dough, green apple sour. Taste is similar, notes of hops, bitter, floral, green apple sour with a thin malt body with less flavor than the aroma, maybe a light dough. Overall not bad, couldn’t be lighter but wish it had more body.

cheap (4682) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2014
On cask at mad mex. Very creamy smooth head like on nitro. slightly darker than a pale ale. Very little co2 but for cask there is this creamy thing about it on the palate. Has an attractive but very mild aroma. The taste is very smooth and easy. Lite beer. Easy to get along with fer sure. Has the lacing of yer mate’s favorite see thru teddy. Boy this stuff is much better than expected. Goes down in a friendly manner. Pleasantly surprized for a nearly flat cask beer. No real negative feelings on this all round.

On nitro at WOB Arlington, TX. Gold in color with a decent sized white nitro head. Aroma is of bread dough, herbal hops, nuts, and grain. Taste is the same.

solidfunk (5685) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Not quite on the style. Comes off a little sour, almost like its contaminated. Pours golden without much head or lacing. Citrus fruitiness and sour finish. Average carbonation. Tap at Bistro L’autre Oeuil.

mavericks0619 (46) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Average esb. Overly sweet with notes of caramel and vanilla. Could use a little more special bitter.

pete4999 (1295) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 17, 2014
On tap at Mr. Goodbar in Buffalo, NY. Nitro tap. Poured a very cloudy opaque orange-ish. Foamy white nitro head. Easy to drink, creamy mouthfeel. Enough hops to keep you interested but not a palate wrecker.

Eructoblaster (3434) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
On tap at L’Autre Oeil (Gatineau, Qc). Limpid amber body with a beautiful, lasting, white creamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with herbal and grainy hints. Taste carries sour fruits, vineous, and woody notes. Ends with an unusual bitter/sour finish. Unique.
