Served on tap at Rattle N Hum in New York, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear pale golden yellow with an average sized white head. The head reduces over time but leaves a thin layer of bubbles across the entire top of the beer with a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate lacing is observed.

S: This beer has a very faint aroma overall with a more grainy/malty aroma than one of hops.

T: A very sharp flavor of a solid malt body with a pleasant hop profile as well. Well balanced and hints of citrus from the hops.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Easy to drinker and lighter in hops than some of the west coast examples of this style. Very enjoyable and a quite sessionable beer. This would be good at a sunny but cool afternoon cook out.

Great beer. Not as hoppy as some of the West coast stuff, but good just the same. it's a mild APA. A good version for those trying to break the mass produced brain wash assault. IMO, this should be their flagship. Great session beer. Can be found through out westchester (NY) county. Always fun visiting the brewery too!

Wow on draft...

A- freshchester pours a slightly copper body with a fair head of foam and lacing on the sides of the glass. Color is both appealing and inviting

S- a grainy bill with some bready and buttery scents. A little bit of fruitiness as well

T- a solid malt flavor completely matched with a hop presence that stays under the radar. Not a blast of flavor but moreover refreshing. Enjoyable

M- carbonation is spot on and a crisp flavor of grain remains

O- a good am pale ale that is not overextended with any flavors. Very crisp and will be enjoyed again

This brew poured out as a nice yellowish gold color with a strong looking white head on top. The smell of the beer gives off a nice amount of hops and grainy malts. The taste of the beer is pretty good, it's got a nice balance of hops and malts in there. The mouthfeel of this beer is easy going and smooth. Overall this beer is pretty good, I would like to have it again one day.
