Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams Boston Lager glass. Taken from a Heavy Seas variety pack.

Appearance: Pours a very clear, bronze-brown color. Has a large, foamy head that dissipates quickly and leaves some spotty lacing.

Smell: Has a nice earthy hop smell backed by a considerable sweet maltiness.

Taste: Moderately hoppy with strong earthy, grassy flavors. The hoppiness is balanced by a toasty, slightly sweet maltiness.

Mouthfeel: A bit on the thin, light-bodied side.

Overall: A decent enough pale ale. Not up to Heavy Seas' usual standards, but passable nonetheless.

On-tap at Bertha's in Baltimore, served in an imperial pint glass. The bar tender indicated that this was the house beer always on tap and in a cask.

The beer was a hazy dark orange color, with a nice, light off white head that dissipated too quickly, but expected given that it was from a cask. The beer gave off a nice biscuit aroma with a hint of citrus. The taste is what I expected from an English Pale, nice and malty, with that hint of biscuit, earthiness and citrus. Very well done. The beer had a great feel to it, a nice moderate feel to it, again given the lack of carbonation from the cask. The beer was extremely easy to drink and I could drink them all day. Overall, this was a great beer and the next time that I am in Baltimore, I will be stopping at Bertha's for a pint or two.
