Bottle. A little bitter with a slight caramel taste. Moderate malts and CO2. Finish attacks the tongue with CO2. There is a "dirty" taste on the back end. It’s not bad and it goes down quite smoothly. But, I have had much better. Kevin (2217) - Montana, USA - AUG 15, 2004
bottle. light brown almost amber with a thick creamy white head. a very nice looking brew.leaves a decent lace down the glass. sweet malt aroma that has a touch of hop. bitter pine cone taste that that has a slight sweetness on the finish. a simple beer but enjoyable. jefcon (1935) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Piney aromas. Astringent and a little thin on the palate. Nice-looking in the glass, with a golden straw hue. Not a favorite pale ale. muzzlehatch (4975) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Sample at the Taproom. Caramel, light pine in the nose...coppery body...fairly light, a bit watery, light piney hops throughout, just a bit too light and lacking in malt. JCW (1279) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Well made. Well balanced. Hops are piney, but overall the beer is fairly sweet. Nice Session beer.

Dry and hoppy taste. Both aroma and flavor are pretty well balanced, but the mouthfeel is a bit thin. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Subtle fruit aroma. Sweet with a hop tartness, but not very pronounced for either. Mostly a weak pale ale attempt. Could use more original gravity and way more hop alpha. boto (2283) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUN 22, 2004
12oz. bottle: This pours a very clear amber color. It has a bit of an off-white head that does not linger long. Some lacing. A bit of hops to the nose, pleasant but not strong. A bit of a subtle hop taste, with a hint of malt sweetness following. A decent Pale Ale. ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Amber brown ale with ample white head. Moderate english hop aroma. Some caramel malt flavor. A little muted fruit. Plesant bitterness meets but does not overpower the malt. A decent english pale. Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2004
Nice orange color with a thick, creamy head. Smells like cookies, which seems odd. Hmm...there’s nothing here. Its smooth and easy drinking, but I’m not finding much of a taste. A little bit of hops balances out a little bit of malt, and you’re left with nothing. I like balanced beers, but this went a little too far. That being said, this would be a great summer beer, for when you just want something light and refreshing to beat the heat.
