crisp Ale with hints of Curacao orange. Brewed for Woodward Restaurant Boston, MA. “There’s some cumin and cardamom in there. It’s a little cloudy but ever so soft. Like a younger brother to an IPA.’’

Tap at Barcade. Pale straw colour. Bright, bready nose with a kiss of light citrus, lemon peel and a touch of caramel. Some toasted/lightly astringent character. There is a bit of soft lemony flavour on the back. Zesty with a touch of light spiciness. Fresh and pretty tasty.

Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2010
Tap at Barcade. Decent beer. Pours a cloudy, light orange with a medium, white head. Nose of fruit and some yeast. Flavor is crisp with some sweet malts and a bit of yeast funk. Light to medium in body with a a pleasant, mild aftertaste of fruit and malt.

tap @ Plan B Simsbury, very very light, not fair to call this a little brother to their IPA, shoals pale ale would fill those shoes, this would be the sperm of the IPA, not much flavor or character, just blah.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Tap at barcade. Pours a light golden, thin white head. Aroma is toasty biscuit malts, light straw ans hay, herbal hops, and light spice- gets lemon and earthy hints. Flavor seems lemon-like- some citrus hops- lemongrass herbs- seems sorachi ace hops may be added? Minty notes, some tannin- and tonic quinine hints? For a beer with added cumin and cardamon, I didn’t really get any of those in the beer- which is wierd since those 2 are usually very powerful spices. Not bad overall.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Tap at Barcade. Sweetish, peach, coriander and clove aroma. Fleeting, light-handed carbonation. Pickled radish and carbonic acid flavor — very dry and dusty. Not much flavor at all. The seltzer of the beer world. Dull.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Tap at Barcade: Pours a light golden with great clarity and a white film of head. Fairly aromatic- fresh dry biscuity malts accompanied by a soft, muted orange peel presence. The body is over-carbonated- thinning out an already thin bodied beer. Very mellow flavor that’s similar to the aroma- some bread crust and dry biscuity malts in the background. Very soft muted citruses (some orange peel like notes) with a peppery and very dry back. Fairly clean and straight forward. Very sessionable, but this particular pour was way too carbonated, thinning out the subtleties. It’d make a fantastic cask.

tap @ barcade, Smutty night. Pours soft golden color. Arouma is slightly floral and yeasty. Profile of caramel malts, taste is very dry and a bit mildew staleness. Finishes with some bitter. Eh.
