Thereís just something about an Ale. Quite possibly the perfect balance of hops and malt, itís the type of beer just about anyone can appreciate. Thatís why we chose this recipe to be the flagship beer to officially launch our brewing company in July 2012. We believe our American ale is a great example of this classic beer style. It has great character, itís full of aroma and flavor thatís light enough to drink during the summer and hearty enough to drink in the winter. Itís a beer for beer lovers.

Supercarbonated, off-white head, frothy lacing, and a light amber body. generic grainy malts, light grainy malts, some vegetal DMS notes in the flavor. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, mild sweetness.

Decent beer, but a little too malty for my taste. Also can taste the yeast a lot which gives it a bready flavor. Not necessarily something I would drink again.

Pours a nice golden brown on tap with dissipating tan cream head that leaves light lace. Aroma of good caramel malt and nutty qualities, hint of earthiness. Taste follows, bitty and malty, slightly sweet. Meh.

A nice straightforward ale. Well balanced with hops and malt tones. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is copperish brown with a fizzy tan head. Nose is heavy sticky malt, hop oil, lots of sugar. Flavor is the same, sweet, sticky caramel malts, sugar, oily hop resin, low bitterness, syrupy feel, moderate carb, rough finish.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2015
Location: Draft at the brewery, 3/28/15

Aroma: The nose is caramel and earth, with some metallic notes.
Appearance: It pours a clear amber color with an off white head.
Flavor: Polio flavor, leans sweet, but with a light bitterness.
Palate: The body is light-medium, easy enough drinkability, lightly dry.
Overall Impression: Solid enough approachable amber (not brown) ale. Makes sense as a gateway to craft beer, but not super interesting for a craft offering. (Cleaning up the rating, I have no idea what auto-corrected to "Polio" in my flavor description, but I think Iíll just leave it, itís too weird to fix.)

I think I love American Ales. Easy to drink and a good bit of flavor, a little bitter. Got my bottles from a very good alcohol store, Bottlerocket, in Norwalk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A well-balanced ale that lies somewhere between a brown, an amber ale and an altbier. Some nutty flavor, crisp hops, caramel malt. A good middle-of-the-road flagship beer.

Bottle late night while doing some reading. Pours copper with decent head. Nose is caramel and some herbal. Tastes of caramel, floral, sage, spicy pepper, and toast. Juicy palate. Not a brown ale but a fine beverage.
