COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper-colored ale is medium-bodied and highly hopped. Its flavor is delightfully complex: tangy fruit at the start, with an assertive hop crispness and a long malty palate that one well-known beer writer has compared to the flavor of freshly-baked bread.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2003 Bottled. Deep mohagany color, very well balanced flavor. Good hoppy edge that doesn't overpower. I am not a huge Pale Ale fan, but this one I can tollerate. Re-rate: This one is more than tollerable, it's GREAT!

Good APA, although advertised as a EPA. Nice Cascade hop nose. Malt is well balanced with American hops. Would be better with English Noble hops. The American citrusy notes lower my rating a bit.

Quite a nice beer. Aromatic and smooth and quite rich for a pale ale. Finish is mildly bitter.

I think the guy behind the bar said this won best draft beer at the GBBF. Yeah, i guess it was pretty tasty. Aromatic hops. Nice soft palate. Sweet and hoppy, spicey, orangey, piney, pretty tasty actually (Cask-GBBF 03')

This is a nice pale ale. One can definitely taste the English influence to this fine ale.

Medium orange brown color. Medium head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. A light bodied Pale Ale. Malts are nutty and slightly sweet. Hops are grapefruity and piney. Middle of the road Pale Ala. A touch thin and a little watery. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with a hint of grapefruit.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2003 Nice reddish color with a thin white head. Palate is very smooth, although maybe a little thin. The aroma and flavor both remind me of Bass, only with quite a bit more hops. A very nice beer.

Sorry boys but I'm not a fan of bitter beers. This one had a little too much hops for me but in keeping with this style of beer. Ruby/amber color, thin white head strong hoppy aroma. Heavy on the hops with a slight undercurrent of malt. Good if you're into this type of beer, but not for me.
