A true classic Cincinnati Pale Ale brewed with an aggressive amount of Cascade hops for a dry citrus character. This beer finishes with a well-balanced slight malt sweetness.

Draft to taster at Rock Bottom. Looks light for an APA; a transparent gold with white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of hops with a thin but solid mouthfeel and a light semi-sweet backbone. Okay.

Chudwick (2818) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Draft - pours gold with white head and great lacing. Nose is herbal hops. Flavor adds lemon peel. Abrupt bitterness. Faint maltiness for faint sweetness. Quite bitter and tasty.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2013
Sample on tap at the Rock Bottom Cincinnati. Clear golden yellow color. Minimal white head. Medium body. Smooth, softer carbonation of light-to-moderate strength. Nice light grassy hop, some straw. Light bitter taste. Dry finish. Not much to this, but pretty agreeable overall.

Had the cask conditioned version of the RB pale ale at the Rock Bottom in Cincinnati. Served in a pint glass with a nice head. Orangey -- citrus in the smell. More orange flavors in the taste -- much more orange flavors than grapefruit. Smooth and creamy, but a but thin with a dry finish. Overall an enjoyable beer.

Pours golden with a thin white head. Aroma is of sweet citrus. Mouthfeel is very watery. Taste is hoppy and bitter from start to finish. Good pale ale.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2010 Draft at the brepub. I ordered a Rocktoberfest and he brought this out instead. No matter; I hadn’t tried this one yet. Hoppy aroma and flavor, with decent malt backbone, citrus, grass, and not much else. Simple and well-balanced. Somewhat bitter, with a malty finish. Not bad. 3/4/10: On cask at the brewpub, and it improves considerably in this format. Hazy dull orange, with a surprisingly thick off-white head. Really nice notes of orange, grass, and hops come through, with the malts taking more of a backseat this time around. Has a cool wet hop mouthfeel to it; much better. Bumping taste and overall ratings up a notch or two each, resulting in 3.2 over 2.9. I can’t imagine I’d have this any way but on cask if given the option; without the option or with something else on cask, I’d go with a different beer altogether.

Deep gold almost amber with white head and lace. Nice evergreen aroma with malt backing. Good maltiness and a very nice finishing bitter. Good carbonation on this medium bodied pale ale. Very nice brewpub offering.

Draft @ Cincy brewpub. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has light citrus, light grassy hop bitterness, and pale malt. The flavor opens with some hoppy bitterness which gives way to a more malty finish. Not bad, but underwhelming.

Draft at brewpub. Amber body, medium head, moderate hops in the nose. Fairly hoppy, with a clean malt backbone. Fairly typical example, very drinkable.
