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.

This is a solid offering for a pale ale, which as a style, has itís limitiations in a high octane IPA world...but, itís refreshing with spicy food and a little smoky on the palate...it tastes like a weak pussy fart compared to itís big brother The Smuttynose Robust Porter...so what the fuck

jamestulloch (1285) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy chestnut brown body with a thick off-white head. Light lacing. Aroma of leafy earthiness, dirt, tea and a minty finish. Flavour of grassy bitterness, caramel and lightly roasted malt. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Crisp and simple. Tastes like a classic Bitter.

355ml bottle from Appellation Wines - cheers Ash! Pours clear amber with a decent off-white head. Aromas are funky yeast, light orange, sherbet. Agree is smells a bit off! Taste brings more citrus, bitter.Creamy texture, medium body. Not convinced.

AshtonMcCobb (2394) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2014
355ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - golden amber with a nice head. Nose - a bit of funky farmyard. Smells a bit off. Taste - orange and grapefruit Palate - medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - the nose was a real off-put but it improved after that.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, toasted bread, light caramel, earthy notes, grass, light citrus, decent enough pale ale, too many choices locally to get this very often.

generallee08 (622) - New York, USA - JUL 13, 2014
From the pour I got a rich amber colored beer with a tall white head on top. The head has very good retention and excellent lacing. It leaves nice lace rings on the glass at each sip level. The aroma has an inviting mix of sweet bready and light caramel maltiness with solid citrus and herbal leafy spicy hops. There is a good solid hop character with nice crisp citrus and spicy notes laid over a study foundation of bready malt that matches the bitterness from the hops. There is a touch of caramel sweetness in there as well. The finish is long and slow with a good balance of hops and malt. Its palate has a good medium to full body and a firm yet yielding texture.

spacecube (767) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
330ml bottle, pours reddy golden brown with a white head. English style malt, biscuit, a bit of cardboard, nice zingy citrus note but the malt flavours are the strongest. Finish is on the malty side of balanced. Carbonation lasting
