2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Dominion Brewfest. Pours an amber color with an off white head. Aroma is malty and floral. The taste didnít agree with me; metallic with hops and citrus notes. Not hoppy enough for an American Pale. Odd aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper color that is a bit cloudy with a thin head and modest lacing. Citrusy hop aroma with a touch of spice. Medium-bodied, moderately carbonated but lacking the punch to make it more than mediocre.

Pretty decent actually. Copper color with a slim head. Some malt/hops in the aroma. Different taste then I expected. More floral...citrusy. Medium bodied, some hops in the flavor. Pretty smooth. Overall a pretty decent Pale Ale!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange/copper amber. Small off-white head. Floral, faintly malt nose. Lightly caramel, graham cracker, sweet malts, light to medium bodied, finishing with pleasantly subtle hops. An appealing brew, nice alcohol, well balanced. No complaints from me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Appearance is medium brown- not quite that of a brown ale, but seems darker than most pale ales. Thereís a medium hoppiness in the nose, and the flavor is quite hoppy and slightly citrusy. Feels nice in the mouth.
ADDITION: SAMPLED THIS AGAIN THIS EVENING under the name "Alexandria Ale." Iím beginning to think that there are two quite different beers, because the cottle I sampled this evening was awful... a LOT of melted plasticlike flavor and aroma. I had to pour it out.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A full bodied amber ale. It came in a 12 oz. bottle. Poured out a deep ruby color, with a tight white head. Aromas mostly of malts, with a spicy hops aroma as well. Tasted ok, nothing to write home about, however. A pretty fair local ale at best. Try some for yourself and decide.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: hazy marmalade orange, decent head, some lace. Aroma: bready, doughy malts over mellow, slightly earthy hops, a little citrus. Taste: solid, sweetish bready and malty background, giving way to even-handed bitterness. Finish: slightly piney, slightly earthy hops fade and the malt comes back again for a little curtain call. Notes: Drinks very much like an ESB. Palate was on the light side, but this was pretty solid. Of course, I am not a pale ale fan or an expert by any means, so take this rating with a grain of salt.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Average microbrew. The best thing about this ale is that it looks great. Nice dark amber color sets you up for a fall. A little too sweet upfront. It wants to be a big boy in the ale world, but comes up short on all accounts. You start to taste a little of a decent malting before it gets watery. A sticky finish ends the experience.
