UPDATED: JUN 25, 2006 Sampled at Princeton. Orange with a small head with a tangerine head. Tastes like an orange lollipop, undercarbonated. I remember why I don’t like brewpubs.

on tap-pours a creamy offwhite head that laces with slightly hazy gold color. Aroma is musty malt, a bit of biting hops. Taste follows. Balanced but very mild/plain. Carbonation, standard for cask-hand pump, mild.

On tap in Princeton - Hand pump
- Unfiltered, pours a bit cloudy. MIld english hop nose with a hint of malt. Caramel in mid-taste, followed by dry maltiness. Great beer for a warm day, heck any day...

Noting this was an English pale ale, I had to keep myself from wandering to the typical profile of what I expect anything with "pale ale" to taste like. Definitely exhibits the qualities I expect from English hops, but that in itself limits me to the maximum rating I can give. Likely the byproduct of my American tastes, this one was a bit on the light side for my tastes. An exemplory version of an EPA, but not my favorite style.

Very interesting. I haven’t had the opportunity to try some of the stranger beers out there, and this is definitely one of them. Came with a very nice rocky white head with small bubbles and a smoothness similar to Guinness. Very smooth due to low carbonation and a very nice maltiness with a good deal of hoppiness. A bit more than a one-off, definitely would like to enjoy again.

On tap at Princeton BP. (Hand Pump) Clear light amber color with a small white head. Very mild aroma of biscuit malts and some hops. A bit of sourness in the nose as well. Flavor was again very mild malt and a touch of hop bitterness. Tasted somewhat stale and sour. Old keg?

Hand pump. Fine real ale. One of the first beers I have had at this temperature. It was fine and easy to drink throughout. A good mellow beer. Beautiful cascading from the hand pump.

Descent pale ale. There were actually more hops in this than in the IPA. Had some similarities to the Smuttynose Shoals, but the flavors were weaker. Certainly a descent beer.
