On tap, at the Capitol Hill location, DC.
Amber coloured, nice hops, and some malt. Medium bodied, pretty good, simple, drinkable stuff. scraff (2125) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 29, 2004
DC location - Sparkling amber, creamy white head, good lacing. Nose is very floral with additional notes of white grapefruit, toasty caramel and light butterscotch. Sharp piney citric flavors burst out initially, but upon warming, the sweet caramel smoothes and rounds this ale out nicely. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation, dry zesty hop finish. A good session pale for hopheads....

On tap at Capitol City in Baltimore. Poured a medium amber color with a small head. Hoppy, floral and citris aromas and tastes with some malts mixed in. Thinner body. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2004
This is just what one would expect from a pale ale. Amber in color, some nice hops, and a bit of malt also. No surprises, but a solid effort. guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 16, 2004
Served from a firkin. Hazy amber appearance, no head, with a muted malty aroma. Soft, fruity taste with little of the American 3-c hops in the forefront. Lightly spiced with a mild, slightly sweet, smooth finish. Kind of timid for an American Pale. Not very complex.

at the brewpub. reasonable, light hint of pine in the aroma, quite sweet, pretty typical average apa shameusburp (171) - Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2004
7.2% I think. Overpowering grapefruit flavor with IPA tone. I can’t get used to the grapefruit taste even after 2 or more. duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2004

City, DC. A fairly decent APA, some lychee and grapefruit. A bit honeyed/sappy, but finishes a quite dry, not very complex.
Deep yellow with a small clinging white head. Smells of fresh hops in the nose. This pale ale drinks more like an IPA, though. I think the malt could be beefed up a bit for a bit more balance.
