COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Subtle amounts of malts and hops make for a clean and crisp ale.

12-ounce bottle. Copper color, fairly well headless and the lace looks more like trub. Has a bready nose with not much else going on...and a little hop finish with not much else going on. Maybe this is what happens when people brew a style out of a sense of *having* to have it on the roster? It doesn’t seem like it was brewed by anyone who really likes pale ales much in the first place, let alone wanted to make one that stands out. Well-enough made but uninspired.

blipp (6114) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2011 Bottle. Pours orange with a white head. The aroma is on the light side, with sweet malt and fruity sweet citric hops. The flavor is much more hop forward than the aroma, with solid citric, grassy, and floral notes. Clean malt profile, and well balanced.

Have had this from a 12oz bottle and on tap at the brewpub. A nice drinkable American pale.

BBB63 (6045) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2003
Golden hue and good head but no lacing. Aroma piney, grapefruit, light spices, and grass. Crisp tart hoppy taste, not aggressive. Could be a little bit more better balanced though. Medium-bodied, clean and fizzy metallic aftertaste. Good APA, quaffable.

AmEricanbrew (5847) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUL 20, 2005
Clear amber / copper color with a decent off white head. Lightly sweet caramel smell. Caramel , cooked grain taste with a lightly bitter hop tang to finish. An average, drinkable micro.

DSG (5827) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks zvikar. Hazy orange. Fruity and somewhat funky aroma with a bit of olives and some citric hops. Sourish flavor with light sweetness, some malt and a bitter hoppy finish. Light to medium-bodied. Maybe a bit infected, but still enjoyable.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2007
[576-20070903] 12floz. Citrus flesh hops aroma with a little celery and lychee. Slightly hazy, brown orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Slightly toasted grainy yeast flavour with mild hops. Medium body. Nice fruit and yeast balance makes it more interesting.

Braudog (5748) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Amber beer with a massive tan foam head. Malty, malty aroma. Intense mash-like character, acidic and lightly sweet. Tastes like a brewery smells. Wouldn’t use the word "bitter" at all.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2008
Imperial Pint draft at The Galway Tribes (Frankfort, IL). Poured a nice darker amber hue, with an interesting, seemingly nitro head that coats as a film, is decent sized, and sticks around through the experience. Aromas of citrusy hops and some bready, caramel malts that seem well balanced. Taste is similar, light bitter hoppiness balanced well by a nice bready malt profile. Hops are there, and definitely are my favorite part of the brew, but is balanced well and is not one dimensional at all. Finishes smooth. Sessionable. Would drink again. Cheers.
