callmemickey (4285) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Clear orange body, medium sized white head and soapy lacing. Orange, other citrus, toffee and sweet grainy malts. Too malt forward for my liking. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a rounded finish.

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2011
A golden ale with a thin a thin white head. Nice classy c-hops in aroma, lightly pinhey and smooth, over biscuitty malts. In mouth, a clean crisp american pale ale with good biscuitty malts, floral hops, grapefruits, classic. On tap at PA Flavor, April 9th, 2011.

On tap. Pours a clear and light amber with a average-sized white head. Aroma is grassy/floral hops and some matly notes. Flavor is much the same - the hops are slightly bitter. Very nice drinking. Tasty. This was probably my favorite of the sampler.

on tap, pours carmel amber with a thin off white head. Tons of hop aromas, very pleasant, flavors the same with nice bitterness offset by some toasted malt. Solid.

kramer (5912) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2009
On handpull, @ UBW. Pours a mostly clear amber body with a nice creamy off-white head. Light aroma of leafy hops and a bit of toasty and caramel malts. The flavor is fairly green and leafty bitter hops with a very light malt base, toasty and dry. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a nice cask conditioned carbonation level. Overall, just your basic APA, decent, but not a stand-out.

On draft and on cask at the brewpub. Light amber color topped by a fluffy white head. Smells of earthy, grassy hops, faint citrus. Taste is very similar with a touch of caramel. Somewhat on the dry side for a pale ale but that is how I like my hoppy beers. I think this was the best one that I tried during my visit to the Barrel Works.

On draught at brewer. Huge Goldings nose! Hazy amber pour with lots of soapy lace. Pale malts, biscuits and flour notes grace the tongue, with a nicely clean dry-hopped finish. Cleanses the palate decently. Dry citrus notes come in at the back of the pull, still bittered. A bit reminiscent of an American take on the English ESB.
