Hand pump at Princeton. Golden, clear, white head. Noble hop aroma. Flavor is a combination of nutty malts and noble hops, with a malty finish. Nice and drinkable.

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.

On tap at the brewpub in Princeton. I think I’m in the minority on this one, but I thought this beer was pretty boring. For a pale ale, I was hoping for something a little more robust - this was too light for my taste. Went okay with my burger.

Hand pumped. Princeton Location. Very excellent pale ale. Me and my friend had to drink this very fast as there was a private party coming in 20 minutes after we got there. Not a lot of time to enjoy, but excellent nontheless

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2004 06.25.04 Hand Pump, Princeton. Light and clear copper. Poured without effervescence; wispy head. Bready flavors, papery sweet, very mildly floral like honeysuckle nectar. Mild, English tasting hops with a bright finish. Worlds better than some very expensive 'pale ales' I've sampled from bottles, probably because the Brits have never really mastered bottling their awesome beers. If this is a taste of what cask beers are like in England, then book me on the next flight across the pond.

Naturally served at cellar tempature, very nice creamy thick head, floral aroma, a little less hoppy than I expected, but still had a very generous amount of hops that contributed a nice bitterness to the beer and to the aftertaste
