On tap at the brewery. Pour a relatively clear golden amber with a medium sized white head. Soft malt and toast on the nose, a touch of vague citrus. Medium bodied, soft and sweet, malty fruit. Sweet fruit into the finish with a soft hint of citrus and slight bitterness. Not much going on here.

On tap at the sea dog local near the Portland airport. Pours translucent Amber, minimal head or lacing. Pretty much malt based, toast, light flower hop presence. Slightly sweet that lingers in the Finnish. cagou007 (1155) - FRANCE - MAY 25, 2014
Pours clear amber with very tan head. Nose is caramel. Aromas are light citrus and bread. Oily texture, medium carbonation. Where are hoppy aromas expected in a pale ale? Quite disappointing.

Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a hazy golden orange colored body leaving a thin white head that dissipated within a minute and left a small square bubbly looking head that lasted a good five minutes, didn’t leave any lacing or rings around the glass. No carbonation was seen rising.
The smell had some light hops I thought they were more subdued than most APA’s. There were some light traces of citrus in the smell.
The taste was mainly the malts with the hops and citrus mainly combined and subtly coming back in the taste.
On the palate, it sat at/about a medium, slightly creamy with average carbonation felt. This was mainly a drinkable beer.
Overall, this was a pretty good brew that I would have again. Borup (14332) - Albertslund, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2013

Draught. This is a bad EPA - its akin ot wet cardboard - no flavour just a hint of malt. BrettTaylor (773) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Pours a dark’ish golden color, light head, medium lacing. There’s a citrus/tangy taste on the palate. Not at all what I would expect from a pale ale, short finish. HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 24, 2011
3 oz. draft sample. Like most of the Sea Dog brews, this looked great with big long lasting head, good lacing and carbonation. Bready smell. Taste was bread malt with a mild bitterness. Light body, very sessionable. Overall, probably my favorite of the Sea Dog flight. bpreo (2832) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Also known as Bangor Pale Ale. Nothing incredible, but I enjoyed it well enough. Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2010
Draught @ Sea Dog, Bangor, ME: I’m quite sure this was listed as "Bangor Pale Ale", so why the same company is also calling it Topsham Pale Ale is beyond me. Crazy Americans. She came a light pumpkin colour with a clingy white head and awesome lacing. I couldn’t pull any aroma at all. Tastes like a hoppy pale ale with straw, white bread and grass notes. Bitter and some spicy white pepper. Sounds better than it tasted, though.
