Draft at Churchkey. Clear golden color, white edge head. Nice aroma of sourdough bread. Taste has decent malt, not very bitter, decent body. Plain but very drinkable.

Slightly orange head, great carbonation if not on the lighter side. Hazy orange color, good lacing. Well hopped, beautiful floral aroma. Notes of orange, peach, aged toffee. Had a slight taste of an english ale, but perhaps this was due to the fact that had probably be sitting around for more then a year. Great Pale. Too bad its retired. So long NRPA.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2008
Bottled on 12/14/07. Poured slightly hazy medium orange with a short, well-retained cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet, dusty grapefruit along with some pine and peppery notes.. very well balanced and it seemed drier. The flavor had caramel and lesser light fruity sweetness supporting spicy pine and floral bitterness.. grapefruit returned at the end and gave a solid impression on the finish.. very tasty! Medium-bodied on the palate with thicker carbonation.. higher bitterness on the end and a refreshing finish. Very solid brew!

Bottle (12oz) shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & garthicus -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear orange with an average size diminishing white head. Aroma of mild resiny hops. Flavour of light resiny hops backed by sweet malt and a decent bitter finish. Light bodied. An O.K. Pale Ale.

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2008
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, and Garthicus, my bottle thanks to my father in law. Dark yellow, small white head. Hoppy, butterscotch, bread aroma - interesting mix, unfortunately some age coming through. Good taste - strong hops, malty sweet and bitter. Again, some age creeping in though. Grapefruit in finish. Held up remarkably well for something bottled last November.

Thanks Tupalev,his bottle, shared with Harry, Paul and Jeff. Appearance: Light cherry colour, no to small head. Aroma: Toffee, malt, butterscotch. Flavour: Thin, watery yet somehow bitter. A mild hop flavour, bottled 25/10/07 and drank on 13/05/08 not wonderful

HogTownHarry (6101) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle (12oz). Shared by tupalev, with blankboy and garthicus. Pale amber, clear, with pretty much no head. Dry aroma, near-burnt grainy malt, hint of dry papery caramel; herbal. Taste is not bad - green-grassy, dry, herbal - ehh. Light body, a little flat, somewhat harsh aftertaste. Maybe a little past its best.

Palidor19 (2948) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2008
Their is a faulty taste to this beer, the brewing water seems a bit off and the rest of malts and hops are a bit weak. Their is not much to talk about this beer.

The aroma is like yeast, cardboard, grain, and grass. The appearance is amber with a huge head. The flavor is astringently bitter and like the aroma. The beer geysered when opened and the palate is thin and it sucks overall.

This is a great pale ale from the bottle or on tap. It is best if it is fresh on tap. The aroma is a blend of the different hops they utilize in the brewing and the flavor also reflects this. The flavor is well balanced with a good malt flavor. I hope whoever starts brewing it after Old Dominion keeps the recipe the same!!!
