This is the old version of the pale ale. The newer one is muchc better. Pours copper, 1/2" white head. Aroma was all c hops, not the huge dry hop varied blast you get in the 2.0 version.

Taste had a lot more grain feel and two row going on before, because it was lighter hopped and all that. Toasty, woody malt tones that aren't heavy. This was a beer dangerously close to being an English pale ale back in the day.
