COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The copper color American pale ale is clean and dry with a subtle hop character. Initial citrus aromas lend itself to a soft bitterness that lingers into a smooth finish.

On tap at the brewery. Pretty decent pale. Wasn’t as good as the salmon sandwich I got at the brewery though.

On tap at the brewery. Pours hazy amber with white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, biscuit malt and ripe fruit. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is a perfect balance of citrusy hops, biscuit malt and some fruity notes. Finish is long and balanced. Nice, delicious pale ale.

Draft. Poured a hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate floral hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.

Rating from my backlog. On tap at the brewery. Pours yellow with a white head. Smells and tastes of peaches, cotton, and rice. Fair.

On tap, of course, at the brewpub. Light, with a heavy hop bite. Almost over hopped, with a bitter finish that ruins the experience.

[1652-20080903] Tap. Mild pine yeast aroma. Slightly hazy, light brown yellow body with quick white bubbles. Light floral yeast and pine needles flavour. Medium body is a little rough. Not as bitter as the amber, oddly.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2008
2008-09-03. Slightly hazy dark yellow body with a small white head. Mild aroma is lightly yeasty, very mild fruit and hops. Flavour is similarly mild, with a pale malt base and fairly light bitterness. Average palate. Decent but on the bland side - the amber had more hops in it! On tap at the brewpub

Nik925 (745) - California, USA - SEP 1, 2008
An average ale, how ever the hop choice is rather different and pretty good. There are some off flavors from the yeast, almost lager notes. I found this to be true in a few of their beers and I wonder if it comes from the cold temperatures that they have to brew in. Great aroma.

Dogbrick (7669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange color with a thin and dense white head that burns away slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and citrus. Medium-bodied and moderately bitter with flavors of citrusy hops and malt. Floral notes are present at times as well. The finish is hoppy with a grapefruit aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
