Session notes from March 3, 2007:
Poured a 12oz. bottle into a goblet.
A: Pours cloudy golden-orange, with a thin white head that soon disappears. Slight lacing.
S: Citrus and hops.
T and M: Not nearly as hoppy as I expected a dry-hopped ale to be. Goes down smooth, moderate to light carbonation, finishes sweet and malty with a kiss of hops. Needs more hops!
D: Very drinkable and sessionable.
Worth a try.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.
Poured chill hazed dark copper hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and good lacing.
The smell featured light pale malts and a grassy hop.
The flavor featured both pale and darker German malts and a balancing grassy hop.
The mouthfeel was typical of the style.
Overall a decent well balanced pale ale. Straddles the line between the English and American styles.

probably the best everyday beer from breck, this pours a nice darker honey to amber color with a finger of lasting head. the nose is very fresh citrusy hops, fairly bitter, but balanced out by a sturdy English and American caramel malt backing. the flavor of this beer is welcomingly hop forward for the style, even more so than most, with a burst of fresh hops, less citrusy than they smell, but still pungent in that regard. mild acidity too, not sure where it comes from, but it gives the beer a real refreshing snappy vibe. bitter in the finish, really crisp, and to me this is the ideal session beer. full of flavor and character but not overwhelming. I will be going back to this one, not sure how it had fallen through the cracks before for me... upbeat carbonation and a body that's squarely medium, everything in beautiful balance. this is a great session beer for people who like their daily drink a little more hoppy than most. bravo to Breckenridge for this style defining American pale ale.
