3.5/5 rDev -4.9%
Draft: Poured a light copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of light fruity ester with some light dry caramel malt with a dry floral hops presence that is also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by dry caramel malt with a dry and slightly bitter hops presence. Body is pretty full for style with good carbonation. Well brewed for the style.

Dogfish head description: An English-style Pale Ale with Marris Otter barley and American Calypso hops To add a fruity and citrusy aroma.
Enjoyed at the brewpub in Rehoboth Beach, DE
A: half finger head on a clear bright gold body.excelent lacing.
S: wheat, green apple, green grapes and light on the pale malts.
T: open with pale malts and barley moving slightly bitter hop varieties finishing with sweet fruitness mostly from citrus notes.
M: light to medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Most finish.
Overall: awesome experience being at the Rehoboth location. Pain in the but getting there on a Saturday in July but worth it. This one is highly drinkable, a little disorganized in the flavor but the flavors that are there are well done.

A - Poured with a small head of white foam on top of a clear, golden body. Low retention but good lace.
S - Clean, bready malt with a bit of spicy red apple.
T - Yeasty bread and lightly musty hops up front. Some red apple and a background note of black licorice in the background with moderate bitterness in the finish.
M - Medium thick body, moderate carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish.
D - Not bad, iit is a pretty good interpretation of the style with a nice, bready malt profile, very drinkable.

First had: on tap at DFH, Rehoboth
Clear golden-yellow pour, with a foamy white head. Citrusy hop aroma, balanced with bready malts; nothing surprising here. Taste was similar, citrus and grassy hops, pale malt backbone, decent balance of sweet and bitter, with light zest and apple skin notes. Light-medium body, and a solid brew overall, but nothing really distinctive.

Poured on tap into a shaker pint at Dogfish Head's Alehouse in Gaithersburg Maryland. From notes.
Peach orange body. A bit hazy and slightly cloudy looking. Some minimal rising carbonation present. Glass is topped with a faint ring of off white head, which laces quite large while drinking and consuming.
Interesting nose. Biscuity malts and fruity classic English esters, some lemon, and fruity marmalade. Slightly crackery and there seems to be a hint of American hop presence possibly with a faint hint of grapefruit like rind possibly.
Palate matches nicely with the hints from the nose. Quite a nice dry biscuity palate, classic lemon and marmalde like bitterness as well. Slight dry with the fruit angle matching nicely, and a good hop presence on this. Hints of herbality and possibly some floral sensations, but also some strong grapefruit zest rind and oils. Oily action on the aftertaste in the hop realm seems quite varied and matches nicely with the base beer, coating and filling the palate nicely.
A distinctly different English style which is probably just a little bit better than most typical run of the mill English Pales I've had.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.
Poured a brassy hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured sweet pale malts and a light grassy hop.
The taste offered sweet round malts, a touch of honey, some fruity esters and a grassy hop.
The mouthfeel was typical of the style.
Overall a pretty tasty ale.

Enjoyed on-tap at the Dogfish Head Ale House in Fair Fax, VA
Yellow in color with tons of visual effervescence. Eggy white topper retains very well.
Aromas of clover, floral hops, light English maltiness, citrus peel, and light honey.
English maltiness comes through nicely, but there's a liveliness to American hopping. Floral and citrusy with a lemon note. Good clean bitter finish.
Medium-light body and medium carbonation. Not bad.
