A nice light copper and foamy head. Significant aroma of grapefruit and the malt. Refreshingly carbonated bitterness and malt, nicely balanced. A touch citrus and fruity. Bit drying finish, excellent with light food, and with that it is very quaffable. Second bottle 21 months later, good bitterness though aggressive side of carbonation.

overall a damn good session pale ale. nothing unique necessarily, just a well made easy drinker here. pours standard pale ale color with a 2 inch head. smells and tastes well balanced with a mix of hop varieties. quick crisp finish and bright carbonation make the mouthfeel just right. this is an all season all situations beer that is as versatile as it is drinkable. not my favorite troegs brew, but a solid day to day beverage. will undoubtedly buy this again

This was part of the sampler I had over the weekend when I visited the brewery for the first time. I have had this beer in the past but didn't recall much about it. Having it again was really nice though. The beer poured out as a golden orange color. The head was white and fizzy and leaves just a bit of lacing on the glass. The smell has a nice sweet hoppy aroma to it. The taste is a very good, nicely balanced with hops and malts. The mouthfeel of the beer is a also very nice, it's smooth and bubbly, very drinkable brew. Overall I found the Pale Ale to be quite nice on most levels. I almost wanted to bring home a growler of it but chose the Flying Mouflan instead.

Another solid offering from the Troegs variety pack.. thanks to my job I was sent to MA for a week for training right down the road from Table and Vine in West Springfield so I got try non-CT distributed beers.

Very hoppy aroma for a pale ale... nice. Moderate lacing, light golden color. Taste is not as hoppy as the smell, very light bodied and I get a lot of "wetness" rather than flavor. I understand its an APA and not an IPA but I felt it could have used a little more body and balance to it. Easy drinker though and a solid beer.. just not one of their best.

A: The beer is crystal clear light orange in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that quickly died down and left lacy patterns of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of caramel malts and citrusy hops in the nose.
T: The initial taste has some malty sweetness and flavors of caramel; there is a slight amount of bitterness in the finish along with some flavors of grapefruit.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is very easy to drink and has a very good balance between the flavors of malts and hops in the taste.

A - Poured out a clear, bubbly, orange color with a small, foamy, white head. It left thin traces of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of citrus, mostly orange peel. It also had some nice floral notes.

T - It really brought a good deal of citrusy zest with a burnt toast maltiness and just enough sweet toffee.

M - It was crisp and sharp. A medium-bodied beer.

D - This is a very good pale ale. I would make a great session brew.

Clear. Deep amber in color with an off-white head that holds well and leaves some nice lace. The aroma is boldly floral & citrusy! Very nice. The body is medium with a moderate carbonation that leaves it smooth and creamy in the mouth. The flavor is rich with a lightly caramel malt sweetness and lots of gentle citrus, floral & grassy hop flavors. Very well balanced with a bitterness that is solid enough to hold the beer in place, but restrained enough to let the sweetness of the malt and depth of the hop flavors come through. Finishes drying with some residual honey-like maltiness and swirls of hop flavor & bitterness. Excellent! A highly enjoyable and extremely drinkable beer with lots of character. Well brewed!

Another real good offering from Troegs,pours a nice deep golden color with with a light but well retaines head,aroma is more on the malty sweetish side with some nice fruitiness as well.A very well balanced "Pale" nice biscuity sweetish malt to begin with with some grassy hop coming thrue in the finish.A very easy drinking appetizing brew from Troegs I think I will waste the rest of the day in these.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours a nice golden orange color with a several finger white head and a good amount of lacing as it goes down the glass. The nose brings a nice amount of citrus hops along with a tiny bit of pine. Some mildly sweet malt comes through as well. Taste brings good citrus and pine along with some bitterness as well as some mild bready sweetness in the background. Light feel with good carbonation; overall, nice and subtle, though not as good as the HopBack.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts with sweet flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong hops bitterness comes in to provide a good balance. The malt character is on the thin side but is enough to give the beer some substance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and very crisp, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, slightly sticky finish.

D: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, very good representation of style, this is a very good mild but hoppy beer to drink for a very long time.
