Draft sampler at Barleys Smokehouse (Ale House #2). Dark amber color, sweet malty aroma, nice hop/malt balance in the flavor. Decent. DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Draft. Pretty dark for a pale ale. Amber/brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, honey. Hops are surprisingly subdued, though present. Taste is smooth, sweet, semi-bitter. Malty, honey. Subtle hops. The definition of a good but nothing more pale ale. Nothing bad I can say about it but certainly nothing exceptional. bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2002
ReRate from 2/10/02: I didn't give this enough props before! I just had it again this weekend and I was reminded of how good it is! VERY Hoppy, gives that slight stinging tounge sensation. A bit too carbonated - but still really excellent. hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - MAY 5, 2009
tap at smokehouse- pretty nice offering- very drinkable fruit and hop flavors- certainly balanced towards the hop, but fits the bill nicely. BennyTicklez (621) - USA - NOV 27, 2004
Pours amber with a small white head. This beer has that same "stale" hop taste that Bass has. I don’t mean "stale" in a bad way though. It just tastes different making it stand out from others. So, I guess this is a pretty distinct pale ale then. It was higher hopped than other pale ales I have had, making it very enjoyable. I will drink again!

Bland, not much taste good or bad. To me there was nothing overly fantastic about this APA. It did linger a little too long on the tongue though. Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Dark amber color, thin white head. Nice pine and citrus hop aroma. Same hops in flavor with solid malt character, slightly sweet. Medium body. Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2008

Smokehouse. This poured a dark ruby orange. Lightly and refreshingly hopped with a sweet caramel malt aroma. This beer has some cirtus character to it, but nothing too strong. Slightly above average for a pale ale.
Draft at the brewpub. Fresh, wellmade pale ale. Very enjoyable and reliable, just not very memorable. AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Good malt and hop aroma with hops to the forefront. Balance of malt and hops but not enough bitterness (even by english standards). Fermented dry finish leaves a winey character. More of a warm finish than a hoppy or dry finish.
