The body has a deep golden/orange amber color with good clarity and some nice visible carbonation. The head was white in color, average in size and quick fading to a small ring of foam that left some spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma brings nice citrusy hops over soft sweet caramel malty notes. The favor had a quick flash of sweet malt followed by decent burst of juicy citrusy hops. The finish brings nice hop bitterness that fades off quickly and cleanly. Its has a medium body with average to light carbonation and a smooth mellow texture.

Pours deep bronze colour with good head. Very little aroma, but some earthy, leathery aroma. Taste is mild with some bitter. I donít traditionally like this kind of hops in a pale ale though. Just ok.

Bronze amber, nice froth cover. Mild honey-hop nose and characterized by an easy bitter hop body accented by a minty greenness.

On tap. Not sure how Iíve never reviewed this before, seems Iíve had it plenty of times. Itís nothing too special, pours a nice amber color and is pretty simple. A good bit of malt, not a ton of hops in it. I donít go out of my way to get it, given their other options, but I was there for a long while and needed something lighter to have for a session.

Had on draft @ the Pearl Street brewpub, Buffalo,NY .. . pours copper .. low foam .. light lacing .. . nice bitters .. easy to put down .. . i find it funny that Pearl Street has a beer named Lackawanna Lager, now, on my way outta town i actually had the misfortune of driving through that town looking for a gas station and i can tell you- that Lackawanna has to be one of the shittiest dirtiest crappiest little asshole of a town in america... so i am assuming that Lackawanna Lager is a malt liquor made with dumpster garbage and crack cocaine...

On tap at the Brewpub. Nice light hop citrus aroma. Orange in the glass with very little head. Light malt taste with appropriate amount of hops. A little watery. A very simple session ale that was ok.

Deep golden topped by a big thick off-white head. The nose is quite fruity with a bit of light berry and a little bit of orange as well. There is a touch of pine, but its not really resinous at all. Nice and balanced. Mostly pale malt and it seems like a mix of US and UK hops, but I suspect thats not really the case. Tasty, balanced pale ale - not nearly as hoppy as they advertise though.
