Part of the discount flight I got.
The appearance was a pale orange color with no head and no lacing.
The smell had a mostly sweet maltiness running about. No soapiness came in as I was slightly expecting it.
The taste was mainly malty sweet with an ample amount of a sweet aftertaste that bled into a semi - wet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed to somewhat restrained but still acceptable.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good English pale ale I would have again. Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2006
Clear, medium woody brown, ringing thin head. Orange malty aroma. Nicely bittered, medium sweet at first then drying out. Bittering seems powdery at timees. Aftertaste is faint chocolate in the high palate, bitter on the side of the tongue. Nice balance with some character. DialSquare (5032) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2014
On tap at Smokehouse. Amber pour with dirty white ring. Aroma of sweet malts. Tastes are light grapefruit, caramel. 6.4 jsquire (4495) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2003
From the tap at Ale House No. 1. Dark amber in color with a big beige head and great lace. Lots of hops, tending toward fruity apple and citrus flavors. Well balanced and great with food. edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Draft sampler pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malts, grass and citrus. Taste is grass and citrus,

Rating #2,100 (by far the oddest milestone video I have seen). 5 oz sampler at the brew pub (#2) in Columbus, Ohio. Pour is hazed orange copper with a smallish light tan head. Aroma has some faint fruit sweetness up front, followed quickly by toasted malt, and a hint of Crystal malt in there as well. Taste is the bright sweetness up front, then a nice toasted maltiness finishing with a very slight roastiness. Palate is medium bodied, lower carbonation level and a dry mineral finish. This beer worked well with the barbeque. Clean and fresh, nice one. weihenweizen (3831) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Light amber with small off white head. Aroma is very light hops, medium body, low carbonation, and no lacing. Taste is caramel malt with some very light hop backbone. Typical English style pale ale. shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2006
Sampled from tap and cask on 11/08/2006 at Barleys Smokehouse (Ale House #2)...
Regular Tap version: Amber color. Creamy, off-white colored crown. Aroma and flavor are toffee/caramel malt. Lots of malt in the taste, as well as a light bitterness. Smooth and creamy in the mouth.
CASK version: Hazy amber color. Aroma reminds me of sweet peaches. The flavor is sweet and tangy, with a hint of yeast. Very mellow and smooth in the mouth, but slightly watery. I think the cask version is much better than the "regular" version... chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2011
The beer pours a surprising dark color, copper with a light tan head, not much retention or lacing.
The aroma is lots of hops, seems like some cascade but that is it, not very balanced.
The taste is light hops throughout with an unwelcome metallic finish.
The feel is ok and drinkability is cut back by the metal aftertaste.
To me its not an pale ale but an IPA and so-so one at that. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2004
On tap at Barley's #1. A very average APA that pours a bit darker than most (deep copper-red with a thin off-white head), yielding an aroma of pungent spicy, peppery, piney hops. English hops lend an earthy/buttery flavor that interplays with piney and spicy hops and toasty caramely malts. A typical example of the style, no more, no less.
