chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, - JUN 24, 2013
On tap at Capitol City, Downtown location in July 2006. Gingery orange colour. A quite poky (abv-wise) APA, drifting more into IPA territory. Good clean Mouthfeel. Plenty of pungent hops throughout. Some spicy, tangy notes on the palate. Maybe some orange peel. Slight residual sweetness on the finish but not too stick. Very solid.

Bamsen78 (5105) - Snderborg, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2016
Draught @ the brewpub, Downtown DC. Pours clear dark amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, yeast and caramel. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt,mwith bready and estery touches, and notes of hops. Bitter and somewhat bready aftertaste. Okay but not a typical pale ale.

Draft sampler at Capitol Hill location on July 11, 2009. Dark golden color with a hint of amber, sweet and hoppy aroma, nicely balanced malt and hop flavor for the most part, with hops becoming more prominent as the glass warms. Could be a little bolder but all in all a pretty good beer.
