Good, drinkable beer. Good body, nose and dry finish. Good quality beer. Thereís an appetizing bitterness to the beer, itís good to have before a meal.

Wow! I canít believe the differance a little bottle conditioning does. This beer is really weak and watery compared to the bottled version. A very mediocre American Pale.

Good beer. Hoppy, with some fruity nuances. An good pale ale, in the class of Sam Adams and Saranac PA. Very tasty and easy to drink, if you like this type of beer.

draft (of course) Pours amber with a medium white head with good lacing, pick up scents of white bread and a light hop. First taste is a medium hop APA with a touch of citrus (orange) balanced by a slight malt sweetness. Clean finish hoppy yet sweet. Very refreshing and a goood example of an APA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 [draft at MacGregorís - Rochester, NY] And I thought this stuff was only good out of the bottle. Nice golden color with a white head. Very floral and full hoppy aroma with hints of pepper and some sweetness. Rather sweet flavor at the beginning with a nice grainy and hoppy middle and a very nice peppery and floral hop finish. Quite tasty and refreshing.
