Dubbed with the same name, followed by 2013, this years incarnation is 4.4% ABV and was served on-tap in a shaker pint, and it's a bright, gold-copper coloring with a white, filmy head. Nose of caramel and peppery hops, with citrus sweet highlights. Bitter and resiny hops forward, with a caramel backbone and lemony highlights towards the end. Smooth and light bodied. Semisweet and bitter aftertaste, with a clean, dry finish. Very refreshing, and very easy to drink.

On tap at Vermont Pub & Brewery on 6/12/11.

A - Clear coppery orange liquid with a sparse off-white head that reduced to a thin web of lacing around the glass.

S - Nose blends perfumy and floral hop notes with a hint of sweet grainy malt. Smells like this may have been dry hopped with Fuggles, as I get some slight earthiness as well.

T - Fairly dry bitter noble hops impart mild perfumy and floral notes with a tinge of earthiness around the edges. Finishes with a dry, lingering bitterness paired with light toffee and caramel sweetness on the palate.

M - Medium bodied with a hint of syrupy texture. Slightly dry finish with moderate lingering bitterness on the palate.

D - I found this to be a really solid dry hopped pale ale with some easy drinkin' charm and a pleasant hop character.

On tap poured into a sampling glass.

Pours a nice light amber color with a small white head. Nose is light and malty with a light hop bite.

Taste is mellow and creamy, super well balance and not overly hoppy or sweet. Teres a light sweet caramel flavor that rounds it out well.

While pondering over the Red Sox 4 game losing streak, I decided I needed a beer.

Pours a nice blondish-amber color with a one-finger head into my glass.

Aroma is full of sweet malt with a hint of fuggles. Not as hoppy as the other pale ale on tap.

Taste is full of sweet malt with some hop bitterness. Crisp. Simple. Works well on a day like this.

Mouthfeel is full of lingering sweetness. Not much to it.

Not bad. Drinkable on a nice spring day. Would go great with a game at fenway but it'd be cheaper and easily accessible than tickets to Fenway.

"our light bodied, amber pale ale dry-hopped with Fuggle hops."
Served in a pint glass.

Pours a very cloudy, yellowish, brown color with a 1/2 finger white cloudy head with good retention and light lacing. Lemony hop aromas, sweet malt, very fresh and floral. Lemon/tea hop flavor up front with sweet malt in the middle creating great balance with no lingering bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation, mouth cleansing with a nice clean finish. This easy drinking beer is best enjoyed on a hot summer afternoon.

Hmmm... Ok, so this is supposed to be an American Pale Ale but I really think its closer to a pilsner. Actually, I just think it's weak. Came to my table (thank Di!) a cloudy, straw gold color. Light head with little retention or lacing. Aromas are understated, muted hops and green grass. Slightly musty grain flavor, yeast and weak hops. Dry finish. Easy dinkng, yes but only because it's beerflavored water. Maybe it's supposed to be a baseball park beer but you (God I hate saying this) would be better off with a Budweiser.

i thought the beer looked nice when it came to the table. golden in color with a slight head. there was very little smell and the taste was extremely boring. it kind of tasted like beer flavored water. not enjoyable. sorry guys. excellent brewpub, just a horrible beer.

Pale ale? I am supprised to see this listed as an APA here.

Served slightly chilled. No head on arrival. Bad service tho. So maybe it sat awhile. Grassy aroma, faint faint faint hop smell. Also some sweet aroma I can't pinpoint. Easy in the mouth. Decent tasting, for a Pilsner or Lager. Only had one because I couldn't grasp the tastes they were going for. Not reccomended.
