On tap at The Muddy Pig reviewed from notes.

A- Beautiful cascade very light amber to yellow colour with a 3 finger off white head.

S- Malt present with subtle hop nose. Not big, exactly what I look for in pale ales.

T- Cask flat homeyness. Subtle citrus hop with hints of apricot.

M- Medium body and very dry finish.

O- I absolutely love casked beer. I feel as though there should be a cask option for everything on tap although I realize that's not feasible but one can always dream, right? The cascade was beautiful between the colour of the beer and the head. The dryness in the finish made me continue to want more and more. Cheers. (643 characters)

Pours a clear orange with a bubbly white head.
This is a great smelling brew! Lots of citrus and a bit of biscuit underneath.
Taste follows with lots of lemon and orange with a nice, ripe fruit sweetness and a little
bit of biscuity malt. Lots of juicy goodness with a lovely finishing bitter.
Mouthfeel is medium and slightly sticky yet fairly bubbly.
Overall, a really good aromatic pale ale. (395 characters)

Quick review:

This is an old-school balanced Pale Ale with a mix of malts (caramel, toast, grains) and hops (traditional citrus, pine, herbal/spice notes). Good mouthfeel with a dry finish. Good APA overall, but this is really treading the same ground that Sierra Nevada did decades ago, but not quite as well. (312 characters)

Nose: light grains, a trace of ripe fruit, citrus, citrus rind. Pours hazy orange gold with 1” white foam cap, finely bubbled and lacy. Enters creamy, fruity, with some bread, citrus and resiny hops. The initial fruit sweetness dries out on the finish. It has medium body and carbonation. The carbonation is fine and soft. Easy to drink.. (340 characters)

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles and some floating sediment. About two fingers of off white head with decent retention.

Smell: A juicy and earthy balanced aroma with hints of citrus, grass, and caramel. Citrus hops with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, and pineapple. Earthy and floral hops with hints of grass. Solid malt balance with hints of caramel, grains, cracker, and yeast. A solid APA aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a nicely juicy and grassy pale ale taste with notes of citrus fruit, grass, and sweet malt. Citrus hops with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple, and lemon. Solid notes of grassy and floral hops. Good backing malt presence with notes of caramel, cracker, grains, and yeast. A pretty nice balanced taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A pretty solid take on an American Pale Ale. Good juicy hop presence with a good malt balance. (1,059 characters)

Hazy orange, lots of suspended sediment. The smell is the best part of this beer, Light floral hops with a burst of orange zest in there. The taste follows the smell so you get excited at first then it falls off into a hollow, empty, metallic flavor. The Beer is torn between bitter hops or the subtle floral, citrus notes but isn't balanced, just confused. (357 characters)
