On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured chill hazed dark copper hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and good lacing.

The smell featured light pale malts and a grassy hop.

The flavor featured both pale and darker German malts and a balancing grassy hop.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a decent well balanced pale ale. Straddles the line between the English and American styles.

probably the best everyday beer from breck, this pours a nice darker honey to amber color with a finger of lasting head. the nose is very fresh citrusy hops, fairly bitter, but balanced out by a sturdy English and American caramel malt backing. the flavor of this beer is welcomingly hop forward for the style, even more so than most, with a burst of fresh hops, less citrusy than they smell, but still pungent in that regard. mild acidity too, not sure where it comes from, but it gives the beer a real refreshing snappy vibe. bitter in the finish, really crisp, and to me this is the ideal session beer. full of flavor and character but not overwhelming. I will be going back to this one, not sure how it had fallen through the cracks before for me... upbeat carbonation and a body that's squarely medium, everything in beautiful balance. this is a great session beer for people who like their daily drink a little more hoppy than most. bravo to Breckenridge for this style defining American pale ale.

Served on-draught into a conical pint glass at Breckenridge Barbecue in high altitude Denver, Colorado. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a one finger head of no cream, decent thickness, and okay retention. Colour is a clear textbook gold.

Sm: Caramel, toasted malt, and light hops. A light aroma.

T: Light hops, full clean expressive barley, and some boring malts. Nicely balanced and built, but with a problematic slightly metalic finish. It's kind of bland.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Thin and a bit undercarbonated. Pretty complementary of the flavours for what it is.

Dr: Very drinkable, but understated - like most Breckenridge beers I've had.

Had on-tap at the Blake St. Breckenridge location. Poured a hazy golden color with a thin white head that dissipated almost completely after a minute or two. Minimal lacing. Aroma was of earthy notes, sweet malts and a touch of citrus. Tasted well-balanced with the same notes from the nose. A touch of caramel could also be found in the taste towards the finish.

Light-medium body with good carbonation. Drinkable but not too memorable...I wouldn't have more than one in a session.
