COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Three hop varieties have added tremendous zest to this Pale Ale. After a soft and full floral nose, those juicy hops saturate the middle of this amber ale with more flowery fullness. The malt body punctuates the lingering hop richness of this one-of-a-kind ale.

Draught [Growler] from Consumer Beverages. Pours a clear bubbly gold with an average size lasting foamy white head. Decent lacing. Hoppy aroma (citrusy and floral) along with some grain, fruit, tea and backed by caramel malt. Flavour of lots of fresh resiny hops, citrusy and floral again, lightly toasted caramel malt, tea and a bit of fruit. Quite dry with a nice bitter finish. Good carbonation, not too much or too little. Average bodied. A fresh, easy to drink, hoppy session beer -- good stuff!

Draft at the brewpub. I get the feeling this had been there a while and the hops faded. VERY pale and so with the faded hops, this was just nothiní. pass, for sure.

On tap at Victory. They may as well market this beer as Hop Wallop Lite. Everything about it is almost identical just turned down a notch. From the brilliant gold body to the pithy citrus flavor. Would make a good hop-head session beer at only 5% abv.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Draft at Victory. Poured clear pale yellow with a sparse white head that left little lacing on the glass. Aroma of pale malts, grapefruit, cereal grain, fairly mild hops on the nose. Tastes of cereal, oranges, mild earthy hop bitterness, caramel, with a fairly dry finish.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2010
Tap at Barcade. Not quite as pale as I would like. Good, though. Perhaps I wasnít expecting such hop/malt balance and it threw me off. Iíll need to try this brew again.

Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Awesomely crisp ale thatís got lots of citrus and clean hops everywhere. Beautiful to look at at a near neon yellow gold. This one starts clean and hoppy and goes down clean and malty. Not filling for how malty it is. Great beer.

OldGrowth (2612) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 25, 2009
on tap at Tylerís, Apex. Good aroma, bittersweet. Grassy bitter with occasional malty sweetness, kind of cereal/toffee. Clean orangy gold color, Good head, spotty lace. Bitter sweet flavor, like aroma, though has a very sharp bitterness. Lite bosy, thin smooth mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Good, but seemed kind of lite and thin, almost seemed summer beer like. I didnít notice a huge difference between this and the Harvest Pils.

On tap at the brew pub the ale had a medium off-white head with light amber body. Aroma and taste of flowers and fruits with a lingering bitterness at the finish.
