3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Waterfront Ale House. Slightly hazy beer with a lacy white head. Sweet orangey hop aroma, some grapefruit and a touch of spiciness in back as well. Loads of fresh hop flavour, orange/grapefruit with a nice pale malt backbone. A touch of breadiness, especially in the finish. Not groundbreaking, but a solid APA.

Bottle (thanks argo0). Copper colored (on the lighter side of copper), medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, slight bread. Flavor is less hoppy, dry, slight grass in aftertaste. Little thin in body, but still a very good beer.

Flowery aroma, great pour.. this beer has an amazing golden glow to it and nice frothy head. Taste and palate of your average pale ale, however.

Via secret santa Summer 2006. The beer pours to a clean looking golden body with a foamy white head. The aroma is crisp with floral hops and some herbs and orange rind. The flavor is quite different. Weedy and grassy hops with some caramel white bread and flowers. Perhaps some orange rind. The palate is medium bodied with a nice texture. Good carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy, light amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops with caramel and a hint of sweet malts. Flavor starts off with the floral and pine hops that give way to the sweet malts. Finishes bitter with citrus hops. Another delicious brew from Southern Tier.

It poured a pale gold with a small, white head. It was light, lightly flavored and lightly hopped, but well balanced with a slight hop finish. It’s smooth, goes down quickly. A hot day thirst quencher, make sure it’s cold. I didn’t know whether to describe it as bland or mild, I’ll settle for the title description: pale.
