cask at the Buffalo Beer Fest. Pours light amber with a silky off white head. Nose is full of pine, grapefruit, and a bit of orange. Taste follows with a full malt body. Mouth feel from the cask conditioning is nice and creamy. What a treat.
64 oz growler fill from the brewery pours a light golden color with thick fluffy white head. Floral and citrus aromas. Medium carbonation light bodied. Very pleasant hop flavoring with a nice balance. Lots of flavor for a pale ale. The guys at the brewery were super friendly too! valpoaj (744) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2012
lost this one in the cellar, so at the risk of damaging it’s rating, I’m gonna give it a whirl! absolute gusher saves me the fear of being flat, but still concerned. robust whitish head with deep orange/copper body...lots of particulates as well. aroma is odd, and that may well be my fault, but picking up some fruit notes as well as some malty breads. flavor isn’t particularly strong...hops have faded significantly, but some sweet fruit and malt notes are evident. definite flavor of butterscotch in here as well...definitely drinking this one well past it’s prime. palate is average with a short finish.

Pours hazy blonde with a small head and prodigeous lacing. Aroma is hoppy but balanced by melon. Served warm with low carbonation. Mild hop flavor balanced against what I can only describe as a real ale taste. Finish is very dry. blipp (9268) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Draft sample at Genesee Valley Beer Festival. Gold with a white head. Sweet malt aroma. Butterscotch and caramel, not much hops. Similar flavor. A bit too much butterscotch for me.

On tap at the Empire Brewfest in Syracuse.
I liked this one quite a bit. Solid tasty pale ale. Not a whole lot happening but it was easy to drink. I would buy again swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2008
On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. More of a British pale ale to me. light Caramel colored. Medium hop aroma with malty presence. Taste is more malt driven with medium hop flavor. Nothing real special but drinkable SoBloHero (56) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 12, 2008
A decent pale all, best in draft. Enjoyable during the late summer and early fall
