Beer poured with nice head and the ligth amber color is typical. Slight malt nose, with no essence of hops - reminding me of an English pale ale such as Bass. Taste was malty upfront, followed by a great hop flavor. Bitterness was low to moderate relative to a west coast American Pale Ale.

Definitely one of the better pale ales that I've had before. It was a caramel malt, which gave it great flavor. It definitely had some floral/piney hops in it as well. It was served in a pint glass and a very very light amberish color to it. One of the better beers at the Rock Bottom Brewery.

Served chilled in a mug at the brewpub.
Appearance: Clear yellowish orange topped by a thick offwhite head which receded to film right quick. Thick rings of lacing were left at first, but became the occasional splotch as the mug was drained.
Smell: Caramel malts with some soft floral hoppiness undergirding everything. Seems more British in style.
Taste: An initial slap of grapefruity hops (Simcoe and Crystal per the rap sheet) giving way to caramel sweetness. Finishes with some nice hoppy bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a modest amount of carbonation. Flavor sticks around for quite some time, which is a good thing.
Drinkability: A more than passable pale ale. It kinda has an identity crisis though as the nose was British while the flavor was more American in style. I forgot to check the board to see when this particular batch was brewed, though. Quite enjoyable anyways. Would pair well with spicy foods as they suggest on the menu.

Sampled on tap at my local Rock Bottom Brewery (Arlington, VA).
A nice clear amber color and a nose of floral, piney hops. A crisp, clean taste of caramel malt, floral, piney, spicy hops. A nice, quaffable American pale ale with a clean hop quality that doesn't take too many chances but tastes fresh and is worth a try.

Coral-like lacing crinkled around the glass of the not-quite-clear rich amber colored liquid. Smell was muscat grape juicy malts. The taste was particularly...fresh. Sweet grains and lightly toasted biscuity graham crackers. Notes of cinnamon and caramel. A flavorful, if small, hops touch in the mouth and in the aftertaste. A very drinkable pale ale.
