Notes: Compared to a pre-prohibition American style beer. A medium bodied ale with a well balanced hoppy finish.

Color is good, flavor is, well, unexpected. Somewhat citrus, somewhat wheaty, but not overly hoppy.

Very piney for me. Citric? Very drinkable. Pale Ale is not my thing but I appreciate them. This one I thought was pretty good. Would buy if found.

Pours a cloudy, honey color. Very flavorful, but I'd put it more in the category of an IPA than a pale ale.

Dark for a pale ale
Nose not very strong
Ordinary taste
Malt dominates
Not a typical pale ale

A bit of a disappointment. It has a bit of a bitterness to it, but it tastes like it's coming from fruit rinds as opposed to any added hops. As a result, it leaves an empty and hollow aftertaste.

The beer was a clear amber color with a heavy white head. It had a malty aroma with a hint of an earthy bouquet. It had a balanced flavor that slightly leaned towards the malt. We found out that it was hopped with a lager hop, Saaz, which left a unique, mild, and somewhat bitter character to the beer.
