Amber colour. Malty with crystal malt flavour, some vanilla, a hint of grapefruit and a surprsingly low bitterness for being an American pale ale.

Travlr (13511) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Bottle from Chevy Chase Beer & Wine, chilled for 8 hours. Very clear golden straw with a very small white head that disappears quickly. Little carbonation. Aroma of fresh flowers and grass, some citrus and a faint hint of black pepper. Taste is clean and crisp, slightly bitter edge but plenty of malt as well - good balance. Hint of sweetness at the beginning, finish is dry and nicely bitter. It’s always a pleasant surprise to find a subtle American pale ale that doesn’t clobber your palate with hops. Good example of the style.

Leighton (11900) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2009
Had a cup from the taps at PS1. Poured a rich orange with a fine layer of pure white head. Smelled of bitter hops. Flavor was mostly hoppy but with minor malt character. Some pine and citrus notes. Had a nice, crisp finish. Very good beer.

argo0 (11666) - Washington DC, USA - APR 7, 2002
Pleasant hoppy smell hangs gently above the lightly foamed light copper-colored body. The beer is well-balanced, with slight maltiness keeping the hops from overwhelming it. The malt’s Belgian origins become more noticeable as the beer warms. The aftertaste is solid bitterness. Not a great beer, but certainly a very good one.

A: The pour is a slightly hazed golden orange color with a massive, rocky, white head and some sticky lacing. S: Plenty of hops to the nose. Lots of great floral and earthy notes with some citrus peel to it as well. Pale cracker malts with a touch of bread providing a light sweetness. T: A massive orange flavor to the beer--orange peel and some orange juice. Lots of floral qualities as well. Quite dry with a moderate breadiness. Notes of grass and sweetness as it warms up a little bit. The bitterness is fairly light. M: Medium in body with an extremely high level of carbonation. O: A good pale ale, though a bit different from what I’m used to. Good hop flavor, though, without being super bitter.
