Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This award winning, copper colored pale ale was the first beer we ever brewed and it's still one of our favorites. We carefully blend German and English malts and add generous portions of American hops for a refreshing citrus aroma with a dry finish.

One of the top top pale ales around in my eyes, got to love this brewing company!
looks a foggy orangish amber,quite pretty
smells of a flower infused buttered up piece of italian bread - toasted, nice.
taste was somewhat aggressive for a pale ale but well rounded out with a pretzel quality malt undertone, tasty and satisfying
full bodied mouthfeel with a pleasant bubbly presence- smooth and slippery
drinkability is stellar ,do yourself a favor and get more than one sixer - GREAT BREW!!!!

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - golden orange, small head that quickly and completely dissipated, flakes floating/settling to the bottom

S - not pleasant, disappointing for a pale ale

T - followed the smell, not at all what I was looking for

M - light-medium full, slight carbonation, again not very pleasing

O - Very disappointed.. Better descriptions of characteristics would have been presented if they were warranted. I expected much better having enjoyed their IPA.
