2010 review: on tap Fresh Chester Pale Ale pours hazy orange in color with a small white head that left great lacing that really sticks to the sides. Smells of floral hops, piney hops, caramel, sweet malt, citrus like grapefruit, grass or herbs and some yeast; nice floral aroma that smells like flowers. Tastes like it smells, with floral hops, piney hops, caramel, sweet malt, grapefruit, orange peel, grains, grass, light spices that give a little heat; very sweet beer that has a great balance between the malt and abundant hops, it's pretty tasty. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth with very little carbonation and slick feel on the tongue with a semi-dry finish. Highly drinkable and extremely enjoyable, this beer was great on it's own and went well with dinner.

03/20/13 At Rattle N Hum, NYC. On tap. A bit too bitter for my tastes. I'm hop shy, so it's no surprise. I'd say this is at the high end of the Pale Ale IBU scale. Not hair curling, but once was enough for me.
