On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings in San Bernardino, CA.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and biscuit aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet malt and caramel flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is sweet and malty and not very much like a pale ale in my opinion.

I had this on tap at Buffalo Wild wings in Colonial Park -Harrisburg PA, enjoyed chilled in a large wheat glass. It is described as an amber ale on the menu.

The color is light amber with great clarity and thick white cap with lace that rings the glass. The smell is slightly malt oriented with slight caramel essence and gentle citrus aroma from the hops. The feel is good with moderately full and balanced body with hops and sweetness in tandem with moderately high carbonation and semi-dry finish.

The flavor has a mildly lemony taste with some light caramel from the malt to bolster the flavor with some light yeast taste with bready malt juxtapostion and slight sweetness mid palate. The smooth bitterness arrives later with mild hop in the background into the finish w/ mildly herbal element and clean carbonated dry finish. Overall this is not wonderful or groundbreaking, but it is a pretty solid beer with good flavor when paired with wings which is what this was designed for. It is is just a little better than average compared to most in the style, but is fairly drinkable.

Pours a light copper color with a dense, soapy white head. There is above average retention and the tall brew laces the glass well. Light grainy aroma but not much on the nose. In the taste, a lightly hoppy, very agreeable pale ale. The main player here is a crackery, bready malt character. There is a sturdy balancing bitterness and a small leafy, almost vegetal hop flavor. Light to medium bodied, smooth more than crisp, and refreshing if nothing else. Overall, this is a drinkable accessible ale from Red Hook. Enjoyed at the Robinson, PA location Buffalo Wild Wings.

On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings in Lynwood on 8.22.14

Very mild and bland. I would have guessed it was a macro lager it was so underwhelming.
