Compared to thier other brew, Red Seal, this is just not in the same league. It is much more of a session brew with little or no stand out features.

Sitting here cat fishing on the snake river, very surreal, rating a beer. Pale golden color, citrusy light hoppy aroma, some crystal malt shines through. Well made cookie cutter pale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper color, slight haze with nice frothy head. Aroma is soapy and has light malt. I wonder what hop this is because I have smelled the "soap" aroma before and wondered about it. Flavor is light, hoppy at the beginning, but settles quickly into a very light malty aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper coloured body with a smallish white head. Aroma of pacific northwest hops with some mild maltiness. Light to Medium-bodied; Fair taste, somewhat hoppy, but mostly malty. Aftertaste not strong and a bit too sweet. Overall, a sub-par APA...nice to try here in upstate new york, however! I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden Amber colour, head held out for quite awhile before disappating. Far to malty sweet for the style. A bit thin as well. Lackluster.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not a bad Pale Ale. Light copper color with a decent head. Some hops in the aroma, pretty smooth taste, not all that bad balance. Light bodied. Overall OK.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Impressive 50% head and nice sticky lace over deep golden beer. Malty aroma. Light bodied and heavily based on cereal-malt flavors, this isn't well labeled as a pale ale ...

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice floral hops on the nose, light copper colour. A nice stab at an APA, but I'm just not crazy about honeyish malts in a pale. Reminds me a little of Anchor Steam, but not quite as strong. Decent hop presence up front, but it's quickly pushed off the palate by the malt and stays off for the remainder of the glass.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours tranparent copper color with a 2.0 cm white head. Quickly dissipating. Aroma is faint--maybe a little malt in there with faint hops, if any. Sour hoppy start and middle with a malty sweet finish. Not terribly memorable, but like the description says, it's a good session beer which is very drinkable.
