On tap at Southampton restaurant. Tasted as part of a sampler. Yet another OK brew but nothing spectacular. DiarmaidBHK (4907) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Draft at brewpub. Pouts golden with a thin white head that fades quickly. There’s not much on the nose. The brewers description is pretty close to my experience. It does have a prominent malt presence on the tongue and the hops snap to attention on the finish. I prefer my pale ales a bit more hop forward on the tongue. bbbeer (819) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Clear light yellow-orange with small white head. Aroma fresh grassy hops. Medium-light body crisp and refreshing. Flavor is mostly malty, dry, non-specific hoppy finish. Not complex at all but well made, balanced, drinkable, and pleasant. skibumphishead (259) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 28, 2010
growler as a Christmas present. Thanks Barb and Deb! It has an awesome copper cloudy pour. The aroma is christmas tree, and sweet cashews. The first cold sip is refreshing pine hops with a metallic finish. The malt balance is perfect (sweet but not too heavy.) I have been really into session beers recently, and this one is enjoyable and local!

Moderate hop-grain balanced aroma. Pale copper-amber with a hint of white head. Full mouth grain flavor with excellent hop balance. Just a good, well balanced beer. fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2010

A Mes rate. Gravicask at GBBF.harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2009
Yellow amber colour with no head. Really good fresh piney hops with a decent earthy malt base. Hints of peach and grapefruit. Big fruity finish with some slight peat. Nice enough beer but nothing outstaning.
At GBBF 2009. Lovely grapefruit aroma. OK in mouth, if a little watery. Decent hop on finish. Solid pale ale. Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2009
Cask at GBBF. Amber with a small off-white head. Fruity aroma with peach and pine hops. Sweet malty flavour with some decent hops
