2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep amber with some orange highlights. Caramel malts combined with a healthy dose of hops. Hops weren’t very bitter, though. Overall, not too exciting, but rather drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Alameda Klickitat Pale Ale) Can 355 l at home, served into a shaker, ABV 5.3%
Deep orange to light amber colour on the body, small off-white head, with good density and retention, leaving light lacilng behind.
Aroma of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple.
Malty taste, some grass, faint hops, less fruity than the aroma suggested, light hay. Finishes with a light bitterness that seems to build up.
Medium thin body, good carbonation.
Okay, nothing to write home about.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draft: Alameda Brewing Co. in Portland, OR) The blandness continues at this brewpub. The aroma is gently hoppy, and lightly sweet and caramely, but reasonably acceptable. However, the flavor is once again too generically "beer". Sweet, lightly malty, somewhat bitter, it just sits tiringly on the palate. Golden in color, slightly hazy, small off-white head fades away to nothing. Still hoping for better from this brewpub.

I thought that this was a pretty subdued American Pale Ale. Not bad, but nothing that would grab you.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
660ml brown bottle. Dark golden pour with light haze and a low sitting slightly frothy whitish cap. The nose has some citrus hops and some sweet malts as well. Taste has caramel malts, some fruitiness, citrus hops. Caramel and toasted malt finish with some nice late bitterness. Overall, a malt heavy APA, very quaffable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery. Lighter amber in color with a small white head. Light citrus hops in the nose with a soft caramel malt base. Decent and balanced, but the hops weren’t floral enough to really stand out with some of the other pales available in the market.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from Haggen. Deep amber in color. Quite hazy. Dry bready nose. Some spicy hops in the nose. Biscuit up front with a spicy grapefruit hop character. Somewhat dry and a little earthy. Nice balance of hops and maltiness. Pretty quaffable pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Burnt auburn in color, small creamy head that fades quickly. Nice hop nose, with some sweet maltiness coming through as well. Full of grapefruit, this is extremely thirst quenching. Has a great bite up front that fades into a smooth clean finish. Very well balanced.
