On tap at the brewpub. Poured into a pint glass. Clear gold color with a fluffy white head that leaves some wet lacing. Aroma is mildly citrus hoppy with clean pale maltiness. Cookieish malt flavor with some orange hop notes and a modest dry bitterness. Smooth and really drinkable, but a little shallow.

Tasted on tap at brewpub. This pale ale pours a light amber color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel and fruitiness, touch of hops. A medium to light bodied Pale Ale. The malts are caramel and fruity. The hops are floral and earthy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. A touch light in the body, probably more due to the low alcohol than anything else. More in the English Style Pale Ale. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

On tap @ Valley Brewing poured a clear amber with a minimal ivory head. Aromas of carmel, bread and citrus. Palate was light bodied and dry. Flavors of bread and graininess with a smooth dry finish.

Anothre draft beer. This beer was not real hoppy, just a clean well balanced beer that happened to go VERY well with the food I was eating. Another of Valley’s great beers.

Could be a copper ale or a mild Amber or an English pale. Whatever it is its a magnificent session beer. Clean and soft with a nice caramel cookie nose and palate. Very refreshing with enough depth to please any jaded beer geek.

Draft. Golden amber beer. Light malt, low hops (slight citrus). Easy to drink - especially on a hot summer day, but nothing to write home about.
