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.

On Tap at Dinosaur BBQ Syracuse NY for 4$

Appearance – Amber colour with an average size fizzy off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains/wheat, malts, citrus, herbal notes, apricot

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an above average amount of carbonation. I can taste grains/bread mixed with citrus and some apricot. There is also some herbal grassy notes and some light hops. It ends with a grainy slightly fruity aftertaste.

Overall – Just okay.. it seems a little unbalanced and a touch too sweet. Still worth a try but not something I'd buy again.
