Bottled 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove. Orange gold with white head. Quite a sweetish malt flavour, lemon with light sugariness. Simple hop notes which struggle against the sweetness. Easy drinking pale but lacks bitterness. wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2010
Bottle at The Grove, Huddersfield. Amber pour with a small white head. Sweet malty aroma with some fruit and hop notes. Similar flavour. Hoppage seems a little stifled giving this a slightly poor balance. Vague metallic tang lurking in the shadows. Drinkable but pretty unspecatcular fodder.

Pours pale amber with thick creamy off-white head and foamy lacing. Predominately notes of spruce or pine. Balanced taste a bit on the bitter side, but not overly so. Crisp and pleasant drinking. tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2010
bottle. Pours great looking copper orange with medium sized frothy yellow tinged head, quintessential APA look. Aroma is more malty than hoppy, featuring cake and light citrus notes. Flavor is pretty balanced, a blueberry pound cake malt backbone with the hops coming through more on the finish, citrus and apricot. Less hoppy than most APAs out there right now, it’s actually a nice change of scenery, although there are enough of a hop presence to give it a decidedly crisp bite. Medium bodied, creamy, and highly sessionable, this is a classic american session pale ale, could drink it till i drop. RichardGretton (4758) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle. Dark bronze beer with a strong head. The aroma is lightly floral, malty and hopped, and the flavour is mildly spiced and hopped with a fairly long heavily bitter finish. Overall a reasonable quite strongly hopped and bitter beer with a touch of spice.

Bottle. Amber with a thin head. Aromas are toffee, caramel and toast malts. Raisins with bready yeast and stewed pear. Lightly spicy with citrus. Flavours are sweet malts with yeast and chocolate. Peppery on the palate with pine bitterness. Decent. johndoughty (5403) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2010

Beer of the month selection. Stands out compared to some of the other average Pale ales that BOTM sent. Tasty. Serving: Bottle alexsdad06 (10278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2010
Draft sample at BBQ, Brews and Blues. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a large fluffy white head. The aroma is pale malt, floral, hints of caramel, light citrus and grassy. The flavor is similar; moderate sweetness, pale malt, light citrus, grassy with nice balance. Medium bodied, decent. Derek881 (1272) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Poured the beer into a glass to drink. It had an amber-copper color with a creamy, large off-white head that had good retention and cling. The beer had a fairly malty aroma for a pale ale, with some caramel, and a good bit of floral and grainy hops too. The taste is bitter and grainy with a bit of a sweet-sour complement mixed in. It does not have a strong mouthfeel, with average carbonation, and a light creaminess.
