Draught at Old Dominion Brewhouse, Washington DC
Deep blond color. Light but nice hop aroma. It has some malt flavor, getting better in the final, with a discreet hopping; quite strong bitterness, with fairly good hops. Pleasant.

Pours a light amber color with a small white head. Crisp hop aroma, cut grass and a touch of pine. Refreshing body, slightly bitter finish. Not bad.

Drake (13489) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2008
12 oz. bottle from a sampler, bottle 073108. Clear brown pour with not much head. Cascade hop aroma is strong with some vegetal notes. Very leafy hop taste with a grainy malt background. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

Copperish color, thin head, disipates quickly. A nice hop bite, not too bitter for a pale. Deep malty flavor. Lots of carmel. I like this beer.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2008
On tap in Reagan Airport. Amber coloured beer. Aroma is lightly malty. A bit of herbal/toasty sweetness. Fairly generic though with not a whole lot of character. Low bitterness, kind of herbal. Meh.

On tap - Dominion brewpub - May 2008
Pours and coppery red color. I could detect no aroma at all - no hops, not malts - nada. Flavor matched the aroma - thin and weak. If seltzer were a beer - this would be it. It was crisp and dry, but damn near flavorless. Is this Budweisers influence showing on Dominion now that they own them??

Copper colored, somewhat thin head and a little bit of lace. Sweet, malty aroma, although not very strong. Seems like a nice blend of hops and malts. Theres a quick malt taste with a fairly smooth hoppy finish. Both are easily detected. Finishes a little bitter. The more you taste it the more the bitter mouthfeel comes out. A pretty good Pale Ale.
