Wait a minute...is that actually live yeast in the bottle?...can’t be. This smells pretty good actually, surprisingly malty with minimal hopping. Tastse like a mellow amber ale. Typical malt, although strong. Dark for a pale - a moderate amber color. Although this surprised me it really wasn’t all too exciting, just unusual for the style and the brewery. Needs a bit more character.

Bottle. Slightly hazy amber brown color with a small cola-like head. roma is malty and hoppy. Flavor is malty (syrup like) and mildly hoppy in aftertaste. Generally, a decent all around beer--much like its English counterparts.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy reddish-brown, with a medium head that dissipates quickly leaving nice lace. Spicy hop nose. Almost immediate caramel on the front, malt balanced nicely with hops. Cleanses the palate well, nothing too obtrusive. Nutty bitter finish that tends to linger (maybe even a shade too long), but definitely fills the mouth and is decently drinkable. Would recommend with pizza or other hearty Ameritalian cuisine. Compliments well with marinara.

Crystal clear copper-coloured beer with a thin off-white head. Sweet caramel malt and citrusy grapefruity hops. The flavour is also sweet with a spicy character and a bitter finish. Well-balanced.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2004 Pours a dark cloudy copper with an off-white head. Aroma is malty. Taste is citrusy with plenty of malt, decent amount of hops. Has an apple cider-ish taste that I didn’t really like. Mouthfeel is full and round. Not bad, not great either.

Bottled. Poured a reddish-orange with little white head. Fruity aroma and a mildly hoppy flavor with fruity undertones. I picked up on some pine and banana during the tasting of this one. Good pale.
