Bottle served in an English pint. Dark clear orange amber with a short head. Decent retention and lacing. Sweet heavy malt aroma. Similar flavor profile. Medium body, soft carbonation, and a malty and bitter finish. 22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Fruity. English style pale ale. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I cracked this one open, but I am pleasantly surprised. It pours a medium caramel with amber highlights with a fair bit of compact foam. Definitely fruity esthers on the nose, sweet bread yeast, with a golden malt aroma. Medium body has caramel and toffee like flavors. The bitterness is neutral but present, with little to no citrus aromas. Floral would be a good description of its hop profile. Creaminess can be interpreted as a bit of diacetyl/butteriness in the finish. This pale ale leans more towards ESB than OB. BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Bottle. Being a fan of Terminal Gravity India Pale Ale I was surprised and disappointed in the lack of hoppiness in this beer. Second and third bottles made me relaize that this was a very balanced and tasty beer. When I can find it I always put a couple of six packs in my fridge.

12 oz. bottle- Pours orangeish amber with a thin white head, aroma is sweet caramel, English hops, which in my opinion seem to always have a dirty dishwater aroma to them, it smells more like an Octoberfest than a pale ale. The taste is caramel sweet up front, followed by a mild dry bitterness, very creamy, fresh tasting. It doesn’t taste like a pale ale, but is still pretty tasty. Body is medium, carbonation is high. They went against the grain with this one, It could have turned out a disaster, but seems to be pretty good. They could market this as a hopped up ESB or Octoberfest, which seems to me to be more accurate. Reid (2605) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2011
12 oz from Lifesource,Salem. $1.45
Clear amber ale with a nice inch high off white ,creamy,thick head
Nice slighly subdued English hop style aromas..creamy cereal in the back.
Taste is very pleasing..its hoppy OK but also a thick and chewy malt balances it out..very pleasant semi bitter creamy finish.
Great creamy mouthfeel to this one,
Actually an excellent pale ale.

12 oz bottle into lager glass. My bottle reads 6.1 % ABV. Pours a hazy orangeish-copper with a medium off-white head that collapses in a minute, leaving a thin blanket and collar of foam; leaves some decorative lacework. Aroma is caramel, buttered biscuits; not very assertive. Doesn’t smell very hoppy like it says in the description up there. Taste is mostly sweet with bitterness coming up secondary and a faintly tart edge. This is one of the sweetest pales I’ve ever had--not in a cloying caramel malt kind of way, though, because it’s really tasty. Different. Carbonation and body are medium and the texture is creamy. Very good. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Can:   Amberish, slight haze, moderate foamy white head, nice lacing.   Very pale hop nose, moreso an earthy garage like malt base.   Weird, just smells like a damn car garage that people work on cars.   Yeah, minor hops up front, grainy backside.   Has more sweetness than I expected, and less hop umph.   Certainly a paler Pale Ale.   Luckily not so garage like on the tongue.   Not bad overall.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Pretty smooth, and the sweetness balances it out.   Worth a try in my book.

Tap at 16 Tons. Moderate brown in color with light carbonation and a small head. Smells of biscuity malts and floral hops, while the taste throws in some caramel. Very much a British style Pale Ale, but I found it to be fairly tasty despite that not usually being my thing. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Bottle... Poured deep bed with a thin head. A mild pale with forward malt tones and low hop resins and bitterness. Some yeast esters, light fruits, malt sweetness and a mild grassy, hop floralness. Juancho (239) - Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2007
On tap at Rose and Rainfrop after the 06 OR Brewer’s Festival. I was told it was the only keg in town... pretty special stuff. I loved it. I’m surprised they don’t regularly brew/bottle this. It made such a profound impression on me that I rank it as one of my top beers ever.
