Thanks goes out to orcasteve for this one.

Pours a very nice clean/clear golden yellow color, nice carbonation, nice little fizzy off-white head, with some sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, with some hop notes. The taste is malty, hoppy/slightly, dry/bitter. Medium body. Drinkable, not much of an APA to me.

Pours out an orange color with some amber highlights and some carbonation visible. Smell consisted of hops and some citrus aromas. Some yeast also could be detected. Some malts are way in the background, but not out of the picture completely. The simple malts and hops mixing in for the taste department with nothing really shining out. The Grail Ale didn't have this, but I noticed this one has some alochol bite at the very end. Just the average pale ale that's good to wash down some food. Worth taking a look at one of these beers at least.

A - golden yellow with a tint of amber. Good carbonation with a good amount of lacing.

S - slight sweet malt, light caramel/citrus

T - Caramel, slight bread and rather light hop character (clean grassy/herbal in character)

M - Moderately high light bodied, good carbonation

O - Good drinkability. Definitely a session beer in my opinion. In regards to overall, I can't say it's bad, but not the pale ale I am going to reach for. I would drink it at a bar.

Poured a medium copper hue with a two finger creamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a strong sweet buttery malt with a smattering of floral hop.

The flavor was likewise sweet and malty, with buttery and caramel notes. Mild hop presence.

The mouthfeel was full and chewy.

Overall a malty APA. Nothing really stands out here, not even on cask.

On tap at the Blue Tusk 5/24/08.

Poured a clear golden amber with 1 finger of bubbly off-white head, good retention and lacing. Smells of honey, buttered biscuits, floral hops, lemon, fruit. Tastes of floral hops, grapes, lemon, biscuit, and a big buttery finish. Medium in body with good carbonation. Smooth and fruity with an acidic and buttery finish. Not something I would go out of my way to drink again, didn't taste very pale ale-like, though maybe I just had an off-batch.
