3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear amber color with only a hint of red. Disappionting small off white head. The aroma is pleasantly malty. Unfortunately I could not detect the hops in the aroma. The flavor is very well balanced with a nice hop and malty dominance. Carbonation is well balanced to its body. The finish is crisp and clean which is uncommon for the malty mouth feel. Overall I would highly recommend going out of your way to try this beer.
Pours golden with a white head. Drymalty aroma. Dry malty flavor, with an earthy tannin finish.

Drank from tap at the brewhouse/restaurant -- For and American Pale Ale, this was subpar. Just, ok. arminjewell (9585) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, dough, slight orange, touch of yeast, slight spice, grass, touch of pine. Taste was a mix of sweet bread, dough, some butter into a bit of grain, husk, some butter, finishing slightly sweet. bigbish (712) - California, USA - OCT 7, 2014
An OK pale ale. Well balanced between the hops and malts but lacks body and complexity. Only ok. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy light brown with some light orange tinges around the sides of the glass. A soft thin white head died within less than a minute. Mild stringy lacing slid into the body.
The smell seemed to have had English malts up front with a light bitter grassy hoppiness running underneath.
The taste was basically the same.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a fairly decent sessionable aspect about it.
Overall, I say this was a decent English Pale ale to have again.

Pours copper/amber with a think off white head. Smells earthy, dusty, some resiny hints. Tastes lightly earthy and spicy with a tangy finish. Sadads (8) - Alabama, USA - JUL 17, 2013 does not count
Generally plain beer. Bitter withou much flavour, hops variety is too bitter would be better with a floral hops. Nsanders (1136) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Tap. Resinous, light lemon, rich malts and crackers. Moderately sweet, followed by moderately bitter. Medium body with oily feel. Closest thing to Summit EPA I have tasted. Gription79 (2887) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 31, 2012
On drat at the pub. Yet another diacetyl bomb like the other five I have tried so far. Spicy hops and grain malts accompany the diacetyl. Meh. Ratman197 (14698) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2012
