4.13/5  rDev n/a
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Reviewed on tap, poured into a pint glass.

A - Deep amber to copper color with little by way of head - just a faint white head that dissipates nearly immediately after being poured.

S - Sweet floral aromas, and a hint of a maple syrupy smell as well. Very pleasant smelling.

T - Hoppy, but not overwhelming. Crisp and bitter, but the bitterness gives way to a somewhat sweeter finish that is almost honey like and somewhat floral as well. I definitely agree with another poster re: style - this seems to be more of an American Pale than and English Pale.

M - Highly carbonated but retains a good body - not too thin or to thick.

D - Very sessionable, but lacking in originality. There just isn't anything screaming "Drink me! Drink me! Drink me!" But at 6.2 it offers a nice alternative to their other and generally heavier options.

On-tap at Gaslight Brewery in South Orange...
Appears a ruddy, copper hue with a minimal head and minor carbonation...
Aroma replete with bread and butter nuances, along with a hint of caramel...
Bitter taste to say the least, with essences of bread and butter, malts, caramel, balanced by a small dose of hops...
Slick, watered-down mouthfeel with a decent level of drinkability to match...
Overall, not an above-and-beyond depiction of the style, but a satisfying sample nonetheless...

Pours copper with a thin head that slowly descends to a lasting cover.

The smell is of citrus (esp. lemon) , pine, floral notes.

The taste is lemony, piney, slightly resiny. Balanced well by a caramelish, honeyish sweetness. Hops are quite prominent, a bit oily. Sweetness keeps up to keep it well-balanced.

It has a smooth, medium body. Bittersweet lingers.

"Sessionable", tasty, well-balanced. To me, more like a well-balanced American Pale than an English, as is categorized here, but just the same, nicely done.

Appearance- a deep copper color with lots of foam head that disappears ever so slowly.

Smell- huge whiffs of barley, grain and other smells. Very nice, you just can’t get this out of a mega-processed ale.

Taste-smooth, rich with flavor and hops, a fine ale. Tastes like it was just brewed five minutes before it reached my mouth.

Mouthfeel-warm, succulent, may be overpowering for the non-craft brew drinker. But other than that it’s fantastic.

Drinkability-Pale Ale is not always the most drinkable but for a fine crafted local ale you cannot go wrong. Have as many as you can handle.

Overall-I’m very impressed with this local ale, a lot of hops and flavor and it tastes like it was just brewed. Be sure to order one if your ever at the Gaslight.
