This is a great quaffable session pale ale. Simple soapy, citrus hop aroma, with a slight caramel/toffee maltiness. Good balance and mouthfeel. fro2218 (471) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 30, 2007

English style ale rather than the west coast style most of us are used to. Hoppy profile reminds me of rabbit food but not in a gross way. Very herbal aroma. Full flavored, crisp, and refreshing. UNCCTF (578) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. Light orange coloring, almost copper, with an off-white head. This was balanced but pretty boring for a pale ale.

Clear, bright copper body with a just off-white head. Mild, pale malt nose with little hop aroma. Some spicy hop flavor but the malts still lead and overpower a bit. Slight iced tea character. Boring pale ale.

Draft. Coppery medium brown pour. Woody citrusy hoppy aroma. Nice malty flavor with decent hopy flavors, and a light to moderate bitter finish. notwoohoo (109) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Tap, served in sampler glass. A good american pale ale, I don’t know if I buy the mix of IPA and ESB. Good aroma of hops with some malt. MullMan (1099) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 18, 2005
very light copper color, clear. off white tan head. slightly malty, hoppy aroma. sweet malt and mild hop flavor. medium hop finish. web of lacing on the glass. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAR 27, 2005
The description on the menu was that this beer was a cross between an English Pale Ale and an ESB. I thought they did a pretty good job at it: the balance between malt & hop is good. The aroma is very nice.
