COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

solidfunk (2999) - 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 (38) - 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 (973) - 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 (2851) - 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.

ComradeK (922) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2013
650ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a smallish white head, which neither lasts all that well nor leaves any lacing. Floral and spice hops mix with rye bread and caramel malt to create the aroma. Pleasant floral and mild spice hops up front lead into a watery body of mild toffee and caramel malt. There are more mild floral hops in the finish. This is a pretty lacklustre beer. The hops flavours are fine, but they have no backing. Malt flavour is nearly absent and the beer is far too watery. Not much chop.

bytemesis (2568) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Tap. Pours clear amber, small white head, good lacing. Aroma is caramel, grass, hay. Taste has a bit of metal. Light body.

mkel07 (2520) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2013
On tap at Archive Beer Boutique. There was a lot of malty caramel aromas coming from this beer and it poured a light brown to amber colour. The flavour was full of nutty biscuit and roasted malt. A good beer with an easy drinking quality to it.

Mr_TBone (168) - Hollywood, California, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Very floral nose w/a touch of caramel underneath, but very hidden. Taste is also very floral w/some citrus (orange) and a a bit of bready notes mixing their way in the end. Nice medium body with a crisp finish. Good beer, but seems to be lacking a bit for the style.

Ughsmash (7001) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bomber. Poured medium golden with a short, sticky whitish head. The aroma picked up orange and earthy hoppage over soft bread and biscuity malts.. nice balance. The flavor found semi-sweet bread and nutty sweetness at the core.. pine, orange, and earthy bitterness around.. finished moderately bitter with more orange and earth. Light-medium bodied with higher carbonation on the palate.. OK, non-engaging feel.. drinkable.
