A pretty good pale ale that works with spicy foods and makes the belly happy. If at the brewpub in Watkins Glen I suggest have 2 of these with the fried jalepaenos.

Gorgeous dark peach body with a peaches and cream top. Salty, breezy, lightly hopped nose. The body evinces mild fruity hoppyness with a slight sawdust undercurrent. Well-blended, multi-grain backbone. Simple, refreshing and pleasing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Presentation: It was poured from the tap at The Wildflower Café / The Crooked Rooster Brewpub. The serving glass was a simple Roosterfish pint glass.
Appearance: The body is slightly hazy and has a nice medium amber color with some visible carbonation. There is a small head which hangs on for a while before fading to a light ring of foam. On the way down the glass it does leave some thin lace rings.
Smell: In the nose I pick up mild mix of sweet malt and American hops.
Taste/Palate: On the tongue there is a pleasant balance of bready and lightly caramely malt with mellow citrus and leafy hops. It has a medium body and finishes with a nice quick hop fade which sets you up for another sip. The texture is easy drinking and nicely carbonated.
Notes: This is a good all-around APA with good balance and drinkability. I really enjoyed it but Hop Heads may be a bit let down however.
