Bottle. Past expiry date, which I didn’t notice at the store. Resin and apple aroma. Caramel and raisin taste, with past-their-prime resiny c-hops. Mild bitter finish. Would try again fresh. spokeydonkey (107) - Albany, New York, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Top notch pale ale. Dark copper colored. Bread and malt with a little caramel note in the background in the aroma and taste. A very nice malt backbone without being overly sweet. Decent hop bitterness with some citrus notes. Finishes with taste of pine resin. Lingering bitterness.
Overall it’s exceptionally drinkable and flavorful for a pale ale. I’m not a huge fan of the style, preferring more hops, but this is a great beer. Erzengel (9759) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2016
*Old rating. Best before 07/27/12. Very nice and fresh brew. Crisp with lots of floralness, round and intense. Long moderate bitter and very fruity aftertaste. Great! drpimento (3814) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Very tasty. Not one of the more hoppy pale ales, but still balanced between bitter and malt sweet. Super easy drinking. jsporrer (1144) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Poured from s bottle. Pours a clear orange-amber with a thin white ring. Light syrupy texture. Smooth mild citrus. Not harsh nor bitter. Very smooth and refreshing. Enjoyable.

Zero aroma. Little hop taste. Bitter. Very lackluster. Try it at the brewery when you take a tour. Otherwise there is no reason to grab this pale ever over other readily available pale ales...

Very nice pale ale. Had it too long ago for a written review. Ratings are from a single number I gave it some time ago. Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
I prefer to cook with this vs drink it. It’s got a very bitter profile, which isn’t something I tend to gravitate to anyway, but more than that, it just sits on the back of your tongue and annoys your taste buds. As a beer to cook with, though, the hoppiness works in its favor and doesn’t overpower whatever meat you use it with. Claves77 (260) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Very pale, very clear thick white lace. Mild hop smell. Rich mouth flavor, lasting palate. Ok, but too strong flavor without the nose. Turboninja (936) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2015
Lakes brewpub, Cleveland, USA. Light slightly bitter aroma of berries. Copper color with minimal white head. Clear liquid. Medium/light taste with citrucy malts, some pine and hops. Bit artificial with medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with hops and sweeter malts. Medium/light palate and medium carbonation. Overall a bit artificial but drinkable.
