3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear amber with little head. Light hop aroma but not much else. A very nice piney hop flavor and great body. Light bitter finish. Would be a good session PA.
4oz pour at the brewery. Pours amber with a lacy, white head. Aroma of floral and lightly piney hops, some pale malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A standard pale ale.

Served in a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a fairly nice golden color with a billowy head. Large carbonation bubbles cling to the side of the glass as the billowy head fades to leave only the slightest bit of lacing.
Smell – Get the lightest hints of biscuit/breadiness which is soon lost to some light citrus hop aroma. Overall quite mild on the nose.
Taste – A bit of malty sweetness up front is soon lost to a rather more mild citrus and floral hop taste. None of the tastes really stands out too strong, which make it a little bland, but also give it a nice balance.
Mouthfeel – A moderate level of carbonation and a thin-medium body make it very easy to drink away, although it leaves the tongue and mouth something to desire in texture.
Overall – This really isn’t my big style so it is always tough to judge. As with most pale ale’s in my opinion its very easy drinking and would be good for a nice hot day sitting outside, but nothing to really savor. j12601 (13297) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber with a large off white head. Incredibly floral, smells of rose petals and citrus. Medium-bodied, nice spicy citrus hops come through. Lingering floral tones balance out the bitterness on the finish. Quite nice. merc7186 (3160) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2013
The beer appears average as it has a golden/amber hue that passes through a lot of light, has a mild white head, and leaves very little lacing on the glass. The beer smells average as it is an okay blend of hops and malts, mildly citrusy. The taste is decent as the beer is moderately hoppy/ citrusy with a decent malty finish that transitions well. The mouthfeel is decent as the beer is carbonated okay and leaves you somewhat dry and mildly crisp. Overall, a decent pale that doesn’t burn you out like some do and blends the malty/hoppy flavors together okay. DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2013

A bit of floralness on the nose. Pours a dark golden color with a thin head and leaves no lacing. Nice hop action on the tongue. Finishes clean. Nate (4296) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2011
On tap at The Gamble Mill. Nice citrusy pine hop aroma with mild caramel sweetness and a bit of soap. Deep golden amber clear with thin white head. Medium body and carbonation. Starts medium dry with light caramel and brown sugar sweetness. Rounded bitterness to start that gets stronger and more chalky at the finish. Nutty dry, mild astringent after. Decent pale ale.
