UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2012
On tap at their pub. Satisfactory amber hue capped by an impressive off white head with little retention. Nose of malt and slight citrus. Taste is malt with plenty of bitterness. Slight grass and citrus. tannins are rough and harsh.

Sampled at the brewery, 7/3/15.

Decent, slightly dull aroma. Some hop notes, light pale malts. Clear golden color with a white head and medium lace. Flavor is clean and dry. Decent, drinkable, but not something I’d favor.

Drake (14109) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 14, 2015
12 ounce bottle, 3/31/15. Hazy orange, thin creamy off-white head. Decent retention. Aroma of caramel, doughy malts and citrus hops. The taste is citrus hops, caramel malt. Thin-medium bodied.

keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Good beer but not a pale ale. More like a lager with a malty sweet beginning. It has some corn in the taste and a lot of sugar.

3.4
merc7186 (3160) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2013
The beer poured great with golden straw/mild reddish hue, a nice white head and good lacing on the glass throughout. The beer smells average with a mild malty/piney scent blended together. The beer tastes decent with malty/resin blended taste that stays somewhat hoppy and bitter on the back end. The mouthfeel is decent as the beer is decently carbonated, somewhat light bodied, and leaves you mildly bitter. Overall, not a bad pale ale, very drinkable, but doesn’t blow you away either,

mike67 (1274) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 13, 2013
On Tap at the brewery in Troy, NY. Pours amber with long lived white head. Aroma is of caramel malt, ripe fruit and hint of hops. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Sweet caramel malt, ripe fruit on the palate followed by earthy hops. Finish is long and bitter. Too much sweetness in this brew for me.

2.1
blipp (9794) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle labelled as "Brown’s Pale Ale." Pours orange with an off white head. This was either off or old. Light floral hops, sweet toffee, and a bit too much diacetyl. Passable, but not good by any means.

jgb9348 (6518) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Super hazy copper coloured body with a thick, soapy off-white head about three centimetres tall. Aroma of yeast, english hops, corn, dry malt and a touch grassy. Medium-bodied; Strong bready and yeastie flavour at first with a bit of the light hops hitting soon afterwards. Aftertaste shows a bit of a grassy and floral note, with a lot of cereal malt flavours and some dry rice notes as well. Overall, not such a great APA, bordering to me on an EPA, but not too impressive. Not horrible - but there are better beers out there for sure! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$2.60 sampled at home in Washington on 22-December-2011.
