App: Wonderful cedar (tan, with hint of orange) color, thin white head that goes away quickly.

Smell: Very light too the nose.

Taste: Cool and soft nutty finsh.

Mouth: Excellent finsh of light carbonation, that complements the subtle flavors.

My favorite, go to beer, always a case in the fridge.

Enjoy it with meal and on its own.

Beer pours an orange red color with a fluffy white head that does not stick around for long.

The aroma is a little fruity with some caramel and toffee mixed in, pretty standard for a pale ale.

The taste is fairly simple, a little sweet to start and a mild finish. Pretty typical toffee flavor throughout.

The mouthfeel is very nice, coating the inside of the mouth well with each sip.

Overall this is a good example of the style, it would be great as a session beer but that is about it.

Served on tap at the South Fork Country Club

A: Pours a crystal clear deep copper in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall light beige head that reduces to a ring of medium thickness at the edges of the glass and a thick film covering about half of the surface of the beer. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of biscuit and caramel malts with some light fruity yeast.

T: Moderate amounts of biscuit malts with some lighter notes of caramel malts that contribute light sweetness. Hints of light fruity yeast and some light bitterness which disappears quickly.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Sessionable and easy to drink with the mild flavor and aroma in the beer. First time I have had this beer since I worked in a pub about 15 years ago but it is exactly as I remember it.
