On-tap 3/20/2011 at Battleship Brewhouse in Fall River, MA, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light coppery brown color, with a short foamy off-white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, a good amount of hops and some citrus.

T: The taste starts out with sweet flavors of caramel and citrus followed by a strong but not over-powering hops presence. The malt character is hearty and provides a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.

Had this on tap at the Torches On The Hudson Restaurant in Newburgh, NY. It's a pretty true amber color with a healthy fluffy white head and very good lacing to go with it. The aroma is solid but not too heavy, a bit of grassy citrus but more caramel malt I think. Pretty good. The flavor is similar with bready brown sugar malt dominating a hint of citrus but I pick up a nice smidgen of cherry fruitiness as well. It's sweet but the grassy quality cuts that with the addition of good carbonation in a mid to thin bodied brew. Certainly quite drinkable and not bad for an pale ale, but I would prefer a touch more body and less grassy bite. This is likable but not very memorable.
