Cask at the Black Friday Cask Festival, Triangle Brewing, Durham. Nice change of pace from all the dark, heavy, malty beers on this day. Clean looking light orange pour, with an attractive silky head. Hints of apricot in the nose before a big, dry, bitter aroma blooms. Inviting and sessionable, well balanced and crisp overall.
Draught. Pours a clear light amber color with a moderate white head. Little bit of hoppiness to the nose. Light and clean taste with a bit of bitterness to it. Nice. OldStyleCubFan (77) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Draft at Mellow Mushroom Wake Forest. Nice beer. Its a nice pale on the hoppy side of the pale spectrum. clean, crisp, and nice head retention.
perfect for the style... nice beer .....sort of inline with a SNPA...maybe not as hoppy but no flaws
