glennmastrange (2739) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Bottle. Light caramel smell, moderate pine and herbs for the hops and a light earth note. Head is frothy white the has fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy orange/tan. Flavor starts lightly acidic and a little sour, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is dry, light to medium and has a lively carbonation. A little bland in taste, but a nice claen, dry finish makes this beer.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2007
This is a tasty, satisfying, solid ale. It is amber with a thin offi-white head that dissipates steadily. The aroma is malty grain, yeasty dough, and a hint of sawdust and pine. The taste has both malt and hops noticeable, with some sweetness and bitterness, a somewhat bitter finish before a nice grain aftertaste. The flavours improve and rellow blend together nicely after the first couple tastes and its great to drink over time. Ultimately, its a solid, smooth, tasty, easily drinkable beer with a solid ale character. The taste is similar to a good English bitter but with a slightly less rich/complex malt character and slightly more hop character.

pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2007
10-19-07 bottle. Malty, doughy metal aroma. Deep amber color with decent head. Very carbonated. Medicinal metallic finish which coats the tongue. Drinkable but not my favorite.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Draft Dark amber with a creamy white head. Aromas were of soft toasted caramel malt with faint notes of citrus and chocolate. Light citric hops bitterness balances over lesser notes of toasted chocolate. Light bodied, medium carbonation, soft malty finish. Drinkable, but just not a whole lot going on here...

Consumed a few BFBs of this at Gin Ricks. A nice, mildly hoppy pale ale, very drinkable. Smooth, lightly bitter, good stuff.

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 12 oz bottle pours an amber with a tall white head. Toasted malts, caramel, and toffee in the nose. Similar flavors with a touch of nuts, grapefruit citrus, and pine. Sessionable. A nice example of an English Pale Ale as Goose Island has done with many of their early balanced English styles.

Simple, easy to drink weak ale. Not a huge amount of flavor besides hints of carmel and a hint of bitter in the finish.
