3.4/5  rDev -6.8%

Pours a thin head on a cloudy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is sharp lemon with a little pine and grain.
The taste is grain, moderate bitterness with a dry bitter finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Refreshing.

Brand new six packs from Terminal Gravity. 12oz. short neck bottles. I poured mine into an Irish pint glass.

A: Deep red color with low carbonation & little head or lacing.

S: A faint smell of roasted malts.

T: Much more of a malt forward beer then other Pales from the NW USA. The six pack does describe the beer as "traditional". I'd have to agree. A nice clean hoppy finish

M: A rich, smooth mouthfeel. Nice big bodied feeling while still not being too full. Perfect balance here.

O: I like these guys & I'm happy they were able to get more of their beer in bottles. I'd buy this again in a heartbeat.

pours a light amber with a good bit of glowing haze. beautifuly apple cider hue. a surprisingly light caramel-colored head of a finger has fair retention leaving a fluffy cap that deposits striking lace.

aroma of sweet caramel malt, honey, and citrus. grapefruit and lemon with a bit of toasted grain.

taste follows the aroma. an interestingly complex rich toasty malt backbone with a pleasant honey sweetness . as I’d expect from terminal gravity, there’s a good bit of hoppiness here. some pine witha good bit of citrus.

mouth is moderate for a pale, but this isn’t an ordinary pale. ample but light carbonation is great - doesn’t overpower. a plesant sweet lightly drying finish.

all in all, an awesome pale with the expected nw hoppiness twist. a good bit of caramel sweetness that I’m really digging. A nice, yet still hoppy, break from the usual IPAs. at 6.1%, it’s still got a good bit of strength to it... it’s almost more like an under-hopped IPA than a true pale, which I’m definitely digging!

12 oz from Lifesource,Salem. $1.45 Clear amber ale with a nice inch high off white ,creamy,thick head Nice slighly subdued English hop style aromas..creamy cereal in the back. Taste is very pleasing..its hoppy OK but also a thick and chewy malt balances it out..very pleasant semi bitter creamy finish. Great creamy mouthfeel to this one, Actually an excellent pale ale.

Six pack purchased at local bottle shop, enjoyed in shaker pint glasses 5.27.11.

Hard pour resulted in finger and a half light brown head, medium dissipation with average lacing over clear medium brown body, minimal carbonation rising. Nose is pretty non-descript, floral notes, a bit of biscuit. Taste mirrors nose with significant caramel notes along with the biscuit, minimal bitterness, pretty smooth. Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium, average effervescence. This is certainly an English Pale Ale which given TG flagship beer was a bit surprising. Could use a more assertive hop profile to compete with Mirror Pond, etc.
