Reviewed based on tasting notes from a blind pale ale tasting.

12 oz. bottle inside a paper bag poured into a plastic tasting cup.

A- Nice foamy head; and cloudy, dark orange, amber body.

S- Bouquet reflected the taste.

T- Really nice earthy, nutty, almost candied malts up front with a piney hop finish that is just the right amount of bitterness.

M- I didn't make any notes on mouthfeel.

O- Nicely complex. I wasn't surprised to find out this was Captain Lawrence's Freshchester Pale Ale. I'll definitely be picking this up again. I like supporting New York breweries, especially if they are putting out high quality products like this.
