The beet poured a medium, clear amber gold. The creamy tan head aw about one and a half fingers high. It dissipates fast, but leaves good lacing.
The smell is earthy, grassy, malt and some caramel.
Tasting the beer , up front is a nice bouquet of flowery hops , mingled with some sweetness of toffee, actually very refreshing. In the middle more earthy flavors and a good malt backbone dominate. In the finish there are more grainy notes to round up the taste.
Nice brew, very drinkable and a good value for the price, $12, for a sixpack.

Having already had the Lancaster Milk Stout and enjoying it, I was excited to try the Amish Four Grain. Not a huge fan of the Pale Ale, I did try to keep an open mind. The Four Grain is good.
It starts off well with a more amber color than most Pale Ales. The body holds up well.
Has a bit of a banana like smell to it.
The sweet taste holds stay with you but is not overpowering..
Very smooth on the palate.
It is not your typical Pale Ale and one in which I would enjoy again.

Pours a brownish-copper with less than a finger of head. Apples and raisins are both present in the nose. Bready flavor, but on the lighter side (not in a bad way). Slightly sour on the finish. Complex.
Not your typical American Pale Ale, but very respectable nonetheless.

Poured into a Sam Adams glass.
Appearance: Copper color, faint white head faded fast. No lacing.
Smell: Tart banana, smells like a beginners home brew.
Taste: Tastes like a beer. Nothing remarkable. Slight bite on the finish, more carbonic than bitter from hops.
Mouthfeel: Medium to thin bodied, too much carbonation for the style. The level of carbonation should contribute to better head retention but it didn't.
Overall: Blah. Not bad, but not remarkable. It seemed like the fermentation temperature wasn't controlled. If someone poured this for me and I didn't know better, I'd think it was a mediocre home brew.

Poured from bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: Hazy amber with a off white head that quietly fades away.
Smell: Bread and malty, sweet malts. Good on the nose.
Taste: Sweet malts in front with enough hops behind it to quite nicely balance it out. Tastes as good as it smells!
Mouthfeel: Medium body and the right amount of carbonation.
Overall: Very well done and a very enjoyable pale ale. Goes down quite easily with loads of great flavor. A good beer for any day of the year. I wish it was available around here.

A - Pours a copper brown with thousands of racing bubbles. An unfiltered look to this brew. Huge foamy off white head after an aggressive pour. BIG foamy rings stick to the glass as the drink progresses.
S - Nice smell of freshly baked bread. Malty and wheat.
T - Clean and crisp up front followed by a semi sweet malty flavor and finishes with a nice bready and doughy aftertaste.
O - This is a very unique and well crafted brew.

A- Deep amber/rust color with a half inch head. Fades quickly, leaving a thin film and some lacing.
S- Toffee/caramel, earthy English hops, light wheat and rye. Very subdued, but also enticing.
T- Malts are the star in this beer. Starts off with a nice bready malt flavor mixed with some toffee. Spicy rye and a sharp twang from the wheat come in at the end. A nice earthy/mineral flavor from the English hops and the Oats is every present.
M- Very smooth with medium carbonation.
O- This one won't satisfy hop heads, but if you're craving a interesting malt forward beer, this could be the one for you. In my opinion, an underrated/overlooked beer from Lancaster. Recommended. Cheers.
