On tap at the brewpub. Poured into a standard shaker pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a bright copper/golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles and a solid two finger off white head with decent retention. Leaves lots of lacing on the glass.
Smell: Sweet bready pale malts with a good amount of caramel and biscuit. Some wheat grains and some light hints of earthy, grassy hops in the background. A pretty sweet malt forward aroma.
Taste: Similar to the aroma. A fairly sweet taste of pale malts and wheat grains with some good notes of caramel and biscuit. Light hints of grassy and earthy hops in the background to provide some balance. Definitely a bready malt forward ale.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Creamy, slick, and very smooth.
Overall: A pretty solid beer. One of the more malt forward pale ales I've had but it doesn't lack in taste.

Growler labeled “Pale 3-14”
A: Copper/brown with a faint white head.
S: Caramel, biscuit…surprisingly sweet smelling and very similar to their brown. Nice, but would like at least a hint of hops.
T: Just like the aroma – sweet with caramel and biscuit malt flavors. Very little in the way of hops. Slight bitterness in the finish is only indication hops were used, but even finish is more sweet than bitter.
M: Medium-bodied, carbonation is on the soft side and overall, it’s a bit sticky.
Very malty and flavored more like an amber or brown. It was tasty enough, but I am seriously questioning whether I ended up with a mislabeled growler as this was the maltiest (English or otherwise) pale ale I’ve ever tasted. I’d rather have one of Great Waters’ Brown Trout if I wanted this type of beer.

Had on tap and cask - the latter was better.
A - Poured out a hazy, copper color with a two-finger, off-white head of pillowy foam. It left sheets of sudsy lace on the glass.
S - It smelled floral with some sweet citrus notes. A touch of sweet toffee, too.
T - It tasted of sweet caramel and toffee with a nice spicy bite of bitterness.
M - It was crisp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.
O - This is a very nice APA. Better on cask, but good either way.

good looking hazed honey colored pale ale with nice lacing and a good 2 finger head , to me this is the house ale its has citrus and pine with fruit and a honey..taste follows the nose itd has a good hop and pine taste wit a good malt finish..the mouth feel is medium well carbonated with a nice hop presence.. its a drinkable house pale ale that should be ordered when going to great waters this is a must try on your visit..but it is not an extraordinary pale ale ..its just one of the best they offer

My first beer at Great Waters. It was served in a standard pint glass. The beer is a chill hazed copper with a thick off-white head and good lacing.
Nice citrus and pine aroma. It is fresh and inviting.
The taste is pleasantly bitter with caramel and pinesap. There is a bit of nuttiness and crackers. Hits all the right notes.
The mouth is blessed with mid level carbonation and a touch of oiliness. I thought it was an easy beer to session.
