COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Jow (2546) - New York, USA - NOV 15, 2014
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.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - SEP 28, 2014
A clear cooper body with almost no head. Aroma was of mild caramel malts and some toasted malts. The hops were mostly bitter with some floral note. Flavor was a milder version of the aroma. Nothing special. Light on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reddish amber color, minimal white head. Sweet and malty nose with some berries, "beet like" earthiness, grain, bread. Definitely a maltier "English" style pale ale. It kind of reminds me of Bass Ale, which ISNíT a bad thing necessarily. Pretty well made.

Tap. Nice notes of caramel malt, some hop and dough. Body was a bit thin. Not bad.

Slubgob (215) - West Hartford, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Tap into pint. Golden brown, lingering thin white head. Fairly malty nose. Fair bitterness in the mouth with the middle getting a bit earthy and leathery. Finishes bright and clean with some intriguing herbal notes. Good American style ale.

Sampled at the brewery. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of floral hops, some caramel and pale malts, and dough. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness. Average texture. Not a bad beer.
