The third of the Peak Organic family that I have tried and this is head and shoulders above the rest. Aroma was very good...a lot of malt. Pour was a nice light amber with this brewer’s usual nice one finger white head. Taste was sweet and malty. Caramel malt with a wierd honey taste. Little to no hops in this one, which is a suprise but a nice change of pace.

Pours light brown with a frothy white head that leaves spotted lacing. You can smell some hops but they are hidden by a toasted caramel malt. This beer is very malty, not what I was looking for but it didn’t taste too bad and had a nice smooth, velvety, bitter finish.

Sample bottle from my distributor. Like the other two Organic beers of this line, the malt is the highlight, even in this Pale ale. Sweet, slightly floral aroma with the hops hiding begind the malt. lightly grassy hops with a hint of citrus on the palate. More malty than hoppy, though. Medium bodied.

350 ml bottle from Bevmo. Faint malty aroma and taste with a mild bitterness. Not great.

stangger (601) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2007 12 oz bottle. A bit of a disappointment. Claimed to be of an IPA nature, but a very generic tasting pale ale.

DarkElf (3038) - La Jolla, California, USA - NOV 7, 2007
07-Nov-07 (12-oz bottle, Best Enjoyed Before July, 2007: Purchased 15-Jun-07 at BevMo in La Jolla, CA and kept in cold storage) Lightly toasty pale malt backing is nicely balanced by earthy and citrusy hops. The beer shows medium bitterness and a moderate note of honey sweetness in the finish. With each sip, something different catches my attention, which I think is an indication of decent balance. But overall, sweet and toasty malts, citrusy hops and an earthy tone seem to be the core flavors here. In the nose, toast and earth are dominant, with only a subtle note of hops in the background. Moderately carbonated and medium in body, with reasonable crispness in the finish. Amber in color with moderate haze, the beer is capped by an off-white, half-inch head that settles to a thin layer. Not a bad pale ale, but living on the west coast, I prefer my pale ales to be completely dry and this one has a bit too much sweetness, especially in the finish. Still, it has good flavor and doesn’t have the heavy grain and earth character of some organic brews.

Nice pleasant smelling aroma. Lemony. The taste is somewhat bitter, but kind of skunky. Maybe metallic. Odd aftertaste.

DocLock (8376) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Bottle from State Line. Deep gold pour with 2-finger whitish head. Aroma is bready pale malt, lemongrassy hops, citrus. Tastes pale malty, with citrus, hops, and some honey dipped Bell pepper late. Again, this one tastes very fresh, but falls short on complexity.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Tap at Brewtopia 2007: Golden pour with a creamy tan head. Vacant aroma. Hints of damp mash and grains. Has a somewhat creamy texture with a grainy malt flavor overall. There’s a touch of oat in there as well. This stuff has near "zero" hop character. Just full of grains, no bitterness. Boring APA.

@VT Beerfest–on tap-pours a thin white head and amber color. Aroma is citrus/flat hops, secondary medium malt. Taste is bitter citrus/flat hops, secondary medium malt. OK carbonation.
