Strong floral and earthy hop aroma, pours a slightly hazy light straw with a thin white head. Light body, with the floral notes continuing in the flavor, there's a touch of sweet malt notes, reminiscent of a pilsner. As an APA, I feel it falls a little short in that category. It's not bad, just missing the hop punch I look for in the style.

I regretted buying this bomber halfway through my first sip. zero head. Smells like American lager horse piss. Tastes 2 years old (couldn't find date on bottle). Just awful all around. Wouldn't drink this for free.

From the bottle, it pours a light amber with a just off white head. Lighted toasted malt scent in the nose with some slight piney scent. TaStephen follows nose. Pleasant.

On tap at The Druid Pub. Needed a lighter drink and got it. Syd said ''a notch above Bud Light''. Some hoppy though. Worse at Conley's 6 months later

First had Steel Rail EPA poured from 12-oz. can, purchased in Boston, Mass., into nonic pint. My first Berkshire Brewing beer, this is a very solid, fruity, traditional American pale ale.
