(tasting notes from 2/7/96) Serving is 12oz bottle into pint glass

Pours dark straw in color. The head is large with small bubbles and dissipates quickly.

The nose has a fine hoppiness to it with some slight malt, grassy background nones.

The taste is somewhat malty and grainy with only a touch of hop bitterness to it.

The beer finishes dry. The bottle claims a Pale Ale ancestry? This is Genesee with a few more hops.

3.6/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured a dark straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a strong upfront diacytl, followed by a grassy hop and corn.

The taste consisted of a strong diacytl that quickly dissipated to reveal a very biscuity full malt.

The mouthfeel was toward the thinner side of the style.

Overall a good American interpretation of the English style. While this beer is not back in production, a special batch, which was described by the brewery rep as a "24 Horse Ale," was brewed for the 2010 Blue Point Cask Festival. I would certainly welcome back this old friend with open arms.

ABV unknown, but higher than the standard formula.
