(draft @ Rock Bottom Pittsburgh - Homestead, PA) Pours a nice golden color with fine carbonation and a nice sized head. Aroma has a nice blend of malt sweetness and a light hop touch. Goes down easy with a malty aftertaste. A bit thin, but not too bad. Good finish.

Served as a sample at Rock Bottom in Homestead. The color was a slightly dark gold, with a wispy white head. The smell was very light citrus. The taste was a slight citrusy hoppiness. Mouthfeel was average. As for drinkability, probably wouldn't have too many more.

A somewhat bland, uninspiring pale ale from Rock Bottom. With a little more guts behind it, this could be a winner, but for now, I can't really recommend it.

Pours copper hazy hue with a decent off white head, and decent lacing throughout. From the Pittsburgh location this beers aroma is primarily hops, not predominant just can't pick anything else out int the flavor of this beer. Taste is slight mild pine cone hops with an astringent unfinished flavor profile just to mediocre to be good, but overall not the worst beer. Rock Bottom is the MacDonald's of the brewpub and this is an instant mass produced pellet hopped beer that should be drank when in a situation left without anyother real beers. The body is too light in my opinion, just let's say this beer is lacking.
