Firehouse Pale Ale was inspired by the 1914 Cortland Firehouse which is located across the road from the brewery. The beer pours a gold color with a frothy white head with a noticable Cascade hop aroma. The taste is smooth and slightly malty, with just enough hop flavors to make it light and clean. A great everyday drinking Pale Ale.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Poured into a pint glass from a 16oz tallboy can. 3.0 A: Clear medium orange color. One finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is below average and a short ring of lacing is left. 3.0 S: Resiny and piney hop aroma with some orange citrus underneath. Malts are primarily clean and offer a neutral sweetness, but theres also some breadiness. Light caramel character to round it off. Its okay, but needs more strength. 3.25 T: Mild bitterness. Hop flavor is again resiny and piney with just a touch of citrus and grass. Bready malts with caramel. Not as clean as the nose, but has a lot more power. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Just a touch of creaminess. 3.0 D: Good enough but solidly average and not any better. ★ 755 characters DavoleBomb, Nov 09, 2015

16 oz can. Poured a hazy gold with a small white head. Aromas of cereal and light fruit. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of cereal and light citrus with a smooth dry slightly bitter finish. Just Blah.

16oz can. Pours a pale amber with a white head. Easy drinking pale with not too much character. Slightly sweet malt notes. Not all that much going on but enjoyable enough.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Amber pour with frothy white head (doesnt look the role of PALE ale). Nose doesnt smell like a pale ale either, mostly picking up not-quite-ripe strawberry melon. Flavor is not like a pale ale either, getting melon, semi-sweet malts, and earthiness. Not horrible, but definitely not good.

Pretty good but nondescript. Amber and clear. Solid balance with nice malt backbone. Would try again.

Tap at brewery. Average pale in every way. Not bad but not stellar. Worth while if in town

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2013
From bottle, courtesy of FIL. Mild malt sweetness, with some biscuit and caramel. Lots of carbonic gaseousness and frothy bitters, with some neutral fruity hop character. Beautiful deep amber clear with creamy-foamy white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with muted sweetness and some neutral fruity character, a little orange. Some caramel. Mild hop flavor with light carbonic acidity. Bitterness is closer to astringent but not too detracting. Has a homebrew-y taste to it, but Im not sure why. Finish is smooth with light sweet after.

July 24, 2013; 22 oz. bomber in St. B chalice. Unfiltered (a lot of sediment in this one) pale ale with the character of a fruit beer. A bit thin, but quite drinkable - especially during the summer months.

UDBeernut (2871) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bomber pours golden amber with a silky cream colored head. Solid malt base in the nose mixes with mild hop resin. More sweet and malt based than expected. Honey sweetness and creamy mouth feel cover the palate. Easy to drink but seems a tad watery at times. Not a bad beer, just something that is meh and a bit uninteresting.

blipp (8879) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours tannish amber with an off white head. Light flowery hops with a pale a lightly sweet malty base, as well as lighter earthy notes. Good, not great.
