Had a pint at the winery. Golden copper, nice smooth uniform white head. Smells like toasty malts and grassy hops. Flavor is pretty simple, but balanced. I get some cracker, some black pepper, and a subtle hop finish.
Golden orange with an off white ring of foam. Light malt aroma. No hops on the nose. Grain and cereal body. Not a great example. Breezy4life (73) - - APR 9, 2016
Color is bronze. Aroma is malty with hints of caramel. Taste is balanced between bitter hops and strong malt. Mouthfeel is decent. Finishes with malt and even a bit of toffee. Decent.
*4 oz pour in a flight at Biltmore

From bottle, Biltmore Tavern (5/19/15). Mild pale ale with noble beany hops. Light golden amber with thin head. Good taste but like pilsner malt/noble hops mix than a caramelly English pale ale. radio_nowhere (1474) - Maryland, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Draft sample at Cedric’s Tavern at the Biltmore near Asheville, NC; clear darker amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of light citrus/fruity hops and malt sweetness. Taste adds more sweetness, light fruitiness and faint pine. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, clean with light citrus hop finish. Pretty hop light even for an English style, the light fruitiness is nice though. Easy drinking pale. ben4321 (6735) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2015

Aroma: There’s a clean hop component, a little orange/citrus, and some pale malts
Appearance: It pours a clear orange-gold color with a small white head
Flavor: The flavor is along the same lines, lightly sweet, with a clean bitterness on the finish
Palate: This one has a nice, clean feel, fairly light body, with a lively carbonation
This is a pretty solid, lighter example of the style. Fairly quaffable. There’s not much to fault here as far as major flaws go. It worked nicely with the food as well.
Thanks to Marshall Hutcheson for bringing me a bottle from NC. Clear dark amber color, thin ivory rim head, thin streaks of lace. Taste is malt that moves through the palate without incident to a lightly bittered finish. Pretty simple brew, not enough to attract much positive attention. kaser (6382) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Clear Orange with white head. Poured from draft at Cedrics at the Biltmore. Sweet honey aroma. Has a honey aftertaste. Decent fruit flavor as well. Not really what I thought is a pale ale - but enjoyable OldGrowth (3665) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Pint at Cedric s tavern. Grassy grainy. Clean brownish orange color good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body creamy mouthfeel bitter finish. It’s fine. I like the bitter on the finish best. magsinva (1425) - Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Tap @ Cedric’s Tavern Biltmore Estate - pours clear amber, white head, which it retrains, nice lacing on the glass. Comes across as caramel dry malts. A Solid, flavorful, pale ale. Strykzone (7659) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2013
12 ounce bottle from a friend. A honey gold beer that is pretty much clear. A smallish almost white head leaves some lacing as it falls. An aroma of candied fruit, grain, and pale malts. The taste begins with some different kind of complex fruit. Again, it is candied. Hops are mild and taste of mangoes and lemon. Light caramel malts. More of a citrus finish.
