Presentation: It was poured into a notched pint glass from the tap at the Ellicottville Brew Pub's Fredonia Location.

Appearance: The body was a perfect amber color with a bright white head. The head slowly faded to just a ring of creamy foam about half way down the glass. At the top it left some nice lacing.

Smell: There was a nice mix of sweet roasty grains and solid citrus/piney hops.

Taste/Palate: It has a good medium body with light bready sweetness, mellow roasted grain and citrusy/piney hops. All this is in good balance with the hops popping out in the finish and leaving some pleasant bitterness to linger briefly on the tongue.

Notes: This is a fine example of a nicely balanced American Pale Ale.

Their best. A bit of tangerine in the taste and citrus in the aroma. Sugary sweetness offsetting the decent amount of hops.Orangey yellow with a fine head. Bitterness apparent. Light mouthfeel, also understated carbonation. I could drink a half pint once. So-so.

Bottle courtesy of Hogtownharry: Poured a light amber color ale with a medium bubbly head with average retention. Aroma of medium bitter hops is dominating. Taste is dominated but medium bitter and slightly citrus hops with some subtle malt. Well done overall but also doesn’t really provide anything spectacular.

I had this one on tap at the Buffalo Sports Garden in Orchard Park, New York, while wackin down some Buffalo Wings, and watching the Sabres beat down the Bruins, (sorry Host's).

This was a very surprising brew. Strong on the citrus, very strong. But not to over powering. It was amix of orange, lemon, and a little lime. The malt was not in your face either.

The color was light amber, and the head was a little weak, very little lace, and no retention.

For a Pale ale it was lighter on the hops than i'm used to. Which made me happy.

It was medium bodied, not to heavy, and light on the carbination.

I enjoyed six tall boys of this brew, so I would have to call the drinkability a plus.

I hope you get to enjoy this one some time..

And as always remember the immortal words:

“Beer is proof that God loves us, and wants us to be happy.”

A very nice expierience to sample this offering from Ellicottville Brewery.
This APA is a light amber in colour with a short head, nice ring and a minor cling..
The nose is a little grainy, the body full and the carbonation very light.
This is a pale ale with a malty fullness on the front followed by a a long citrus like bite.
A very nice brew..
