My go to beer. Finally, a quality american micro that isn't ridiculously overhopped. Bread malt like an English ale, with enough hops - just not a stupid amount. Thank you Berkshire.
Some people will see the word pale and say "where are the damn hops?". There's something to be said for balance and structure - the current offerings of pale ale remind me of children at a make your own sundae bar drowning their creation in chocolate syrup.

On tap at Horseshoe Pub in Hudson, MA.
Darker and maltier than I expected but still very good. Malt and dark fruits dominate the nose and flavor. A faint hop presence but not enough by my standards to be considered an APA. Maybe an EPA. Fruity and tasty enough to get good marks, in my opinion. Fresh, clean, smooth. Another well-crafted beer from Berkshire.

Clear copper with slight frothy tan-ish head. Plenty of carbonation. Little retention - just a film on top. Some very slight patchy lacing. Some sediment
Smells sweet amd bready. Hints of dark fruits among bready caramel malts. Some earthy grassy notes in the background
Taste follows the nose. Lots of bready malts and sweet fruits and caramel. A bit nutty. Somewhere towards the middle some grassy hops introduce themselves but never assert any real bitterness. The finish is sweet and slightly floral with a grassy aftertaste
Feels smooth. On the lighter side of medium-bodied. Very easy drinking. Clean
A very nice ale overall. Well-made and fairly well-balanced but leaning towards the sweet side. Would definitely get again if I was in the mood for a good ale. Honestly a little surprised when I looked at the ABV. Drinks like nothing
