Light, clear yellow gold, thin lacing. Very light musky nose. Crisp, light; a light citrus note on the back palate. Very sessionable...this would be a really good summer beer. jmikolich (1486) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Hmm and English Pale? well it works to me, the Kent Goldings sing in this beer, its a balanced beer which wouldnt offend any englishman, straight forward and well crafted. SudsMcDuff (8552) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2012

Pours a cloudy amber color with minimal off white head. Aroma is malty for a pale. Taste proves to be more of the same. Rich malt backbone with a generous amount of hops but since the malt is so robust it merely is a slight interruption. I personally like this balance even though it might not meet the standard definition of a pale. nimbleprop (9048) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2012
On cask at the brewpub. Now here’s a beer. From the cask it took several minutes to settle into a transparent orange with a very thick, creamy white head. The cask my beer was poured from had been dry hopped with Amarillo pellets. As a result a wonderful nose was detectable from 3 feet away. Floral, honey, citrus, white grape, malt, yeast, lemon candy. Flavor was a little weaker than I would have liked, sweet, light bitterness, bread, honey, lemon. Very creamy in the mouth, but not major lasting bitterness. A session beer done right.

Bitter and dry, which is what I like in an ale. It had such a dry finish, in fact, that I was surprised that it’s ABV isn’t particularly high. PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Bottle. Huge foamy head, the type that flows up out of the glass but is so densely foamy it doesn’t spill over the sides at all, dark cloudy copper after a carbonated pour. The hop scent hits first then the caramel, molasses/malty aroma. The taste is bitter hay hop upfront quickly fading to a doughy malty fizzler. I have to say, the brewer’s description was pretty accurate. I’m used to inflated run downs, bit this one is on the money. A solid English pale.

Had on tap at brewpub. Golden pour. Aroma of vanilla and bread. Flavor was malty at first followed by pine cones. Not that I have eaten pine cones before, but you get it. Bitter, sticky finish. DragonStout (1418) - Groveport, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Pours golden with a nice piney hop aroma. Flavor followed the nose with a nice dose of bitter hop.Finished off with a hop bitterness bite. JoePeesie (924) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Pours a golden brown with a white head that fades quickly and leaves only a trace of lace. Nose and taste are of balanced malts, a touch of grain and subdued English hops. Worth trying if your in the Burgh. The brewery is definitely worth stopping into as it is a completely different experience.
