Had this one bottled at the brewery in Milford, New York. Nice dark reddish brown color, a piney, hoppy nose, well balanced with a very strong grapefruit and rose flavor, awesome. JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 12, 2002
Very good pale ale. Friendly dry quality, smooth finish with no aftertaste. Very good ale to watch ballgame with. Where’s the Zweigles? AskForJenny (1086) - Ontario, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2008
12oz - Rock solid from start to finish. Copper colored liquid under frotyhy tan head. Healthy carbonation of small bubbles. Nice bright citrus hops on nose. Palate is nice too, with malt fading to spice (nutmeg) and hops. A pleasant, well constructed, memorable New York brewed ale. rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. No other information is available on the label.
Appearance: The body has a slightly hazy look with a good amber color and a creamy off white head. The two finger head slowly settles as I drink and makes some spotty lacing on the glass.
Smell: It has a nice blend of bready maltiness with a pleasant butterfinger like caramel/toffee sweetness and citrus/grassy hops.
Taste/Palate: It starts with a good base of bready malt and very light toasted grain. This is balanced buy mildly bitter hops that add a touch of citrus and grassy flavor to the overall character. It finishes with a mild bitter fade on a smooth yet well carbonated medium body.
Notes: It’s good in the bottle but much better and with a brighter hop character on tap. Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2002
Mmmm, great malting, a little less on the hopped side. A very good APA. Thanks Jayme -- Except I could drink a million of these!

i think this beer is a great example of what apale ale should ... flavor. This beer has got it. good drinking beer. williamherbert (1544) - Syracuse, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2010
This has a nice, hazy cider orange. Large pillowy head. Darkish orange. Head sticks around for a while. Tiny specks of lace at the top.
Has a nice English Pale smell. Ale-y, slightly fruity (apricot/orange?). Sweet ale malt, few hops to be detected. Fruity and inviting.
Malty ale taste, with a fruity base in the malt. Musty hops act as a bitter parting shot, mild though they are. All flavors increase/improve as it warms up.
Thick ale feel. Slightly creamy and with a wet after-feel. It has a definite English Pale taste. Lovely actually; a fine, sweet ale.

(Bottle) Pours a medium, wellowish head and an orange body. Nose of butter, malt and floral hops. Flavours of a sweet hop with a creamy, milky finish. Hardly tart. Very good. This could become a regular weekend beer if I get my way...
