A very solid English style pale ale. Big head, not a lot of carbonation. Redish/orange in color. Dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught) Sampled at the Central New York Brewfest on February 4, 2006. A big, big surprise from Sacketts Harbour - including the fact that this was the first beer I tried at the festival - and it was likely my favourite of those I reviewed. Pours a large, tan head with an orange body. Very piney and cascade nose and flavour. Thin finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A golden ale with a thin off white head. Surprise from SHBC! A pleasant aroma of caramel malt over good floral c-hops and classic citrusy notes. In mouth. the same. A good malt base with well balanced hops. A bit thin but this the strongest SH offering I tasted to date. One of my coup de coeur at the CNY Brewfest 2006.
