COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A golden-colored pale ale with an authentic spicy flavor and aroma of the finest East Kent Goldings and American Cascade hops. The high level of hop aroma, without a lot of bitterness, is created by adding hops after boiling. This ale has a malty-sweet taste (not always found in pale ales) created bylight caramel and Munich malts.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized mostly lasting unnoted colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained no carbonation, was transparent and yellow brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild malts hops and caramel. Its mouth feel is tingly with a lingering slightly tingly palate and a smooth aftertaste. Its flavor contained malty hoppy flavors favoring the hops with a mild brown beer and caramel malty note.

Dayton draft. Color was dark amber with medium white head. Aroma was hoppy and complex. Flavor was good balance of hops and malty with a good balnced finish. Tasted a little more complex than a standard american pale ale.

BelgianGirl (89) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Light golden in color with creamy white head. Mild hop aroma and flavor, a good beer for someone who does not LOVE hoppy beers. Some spiciness was present in the aroma.

brentfeesh (1207) - Gadsden, Alabama, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Had this at the Thristy Dog on the Beer Engine. Poured a hazy orange with minimal head. I was surprised to discover that my beer had little to no aroma. Beer had very little carbonation and a lite mouth feel. The flavor was flowery and citrus with sweet malt and orange. Finished lite and bitter with a good aftertaste. Not to shabby...

pivo (2547) - GERMANY - APR 29, 2004
ON TAP: Fairly dark color for an APA. Came with no head by the time it arrived at my table. Apricot finish. Little bitter. Fairly decent balance, but nothing special. Just OK.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2003
this almost a textbook apa. Nice mix of malt and hops. Good color and head. One of the beers that i'd recommend.

Perfect head, radiant color--looks and acts just like a beer should. Very drinkable with spicy overtones that tease you into contemplating a dash a pumpkin for the fall.

jsquire (3402) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2003
Out of the tap at the Dayton brewpub. Golden copper color with a tight, white head. White sugar sweetness with a little spicey hop finish. Clean finish but not much body. A little simplistic.
