3.59/5 rDev +8.1%
Poured from draft at the Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse, NY.
A: A nice soft amber with tinges of red. Some head, minimal lacing. Carbonation is apparent.
S: Hoppy and malty but not overly strong. Big citrus notes.
T: Malt body with a hop nose covered in grapefruit and tangy sour bread. Pretty tasty, no lingering bitterness and easy enough to go down after some hearty foods.
M: Balanced and easy, crisp with a nice drinkable feel and noticeable hop twang with some carbonation.
O: Gotta try it when you go to the Dino. Balanced and good, pairs well with a hearty meal.

On tap Dinosaur BBQ in Rochester, NY.
Pours a light golden yellow, with some orange tinges. Half inch head, and only a small amount of lacing.
Smells fairly weak, some malt sweetness, and a bit of fruity hops.
The taste is similar. It doesn't necessarily taste bad, it's just boring. Herbal hop character, a bit floral, with some fruity yeastiness that is quite common in Middle Ages beers. A bit of caramel malt sweetness.
Light bodied, crisp, dry mouthfeel, medium carbonation, pretty drinkable.
This is ok, but I probably won't get it again.

I had Middle Ages Ape Hanger Ale at the Dinosaur BBQ in Rochester (great place BTW).
As with most beers at the Dinosaur, it is severed in standard pint glass. The beer is medium gold with a slight chill haze and a sticky white head.
Light grains and something fruity like apricot.
Taste tracks the smell. Milled grains, a bit of cracker and apricot and pear. I like the interplay of the malts and hops. Some caramel notes at mid-glass.
The mouth is yeoman like. It is an easy drinker and went very well with my BBQ.

on tap at dine bbq, syracuse. pours a gentle wheat ale color, with hues of orange and copper in lesser quantity, and a substandard head of only about a quarter inch, but it may have sat on the server tray awhile, the place was packed as always. the nose is more like the ithaca apricot than a magic hat number 9, super fruity, almost jammy, with wheat malt undertones and a lot of residual sugar. the flavor is the same as the nose, but the sugar cuts through some of the heat of the spicy food at the restaurant, which is much needed sometimes. lots of fruit, lots of sweet. the feel is alright, plenty of carbonation and a sticky medium body. id like to see more of the sugars fermented in this beer to dry out the finish and take away some sweetness while also providing enough alcohol to cop a buzz. still though, a tasty brew, i like proprietary beers, and this is a good one.
