(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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark amber color with a moderate off white head on there. Nose is grassy and earthy and not all that inviting. Taste is a bit bitter and just not interesting. Bleh.

Can at a park. Aroma is spicy, grainy, fruity and a bit messy. Flavor is quite bitter, slightly metallic and with quite some carbonation. Messy yeast.

Tap... Poured a hazy amberish-red with a white head, really nice lacing. Aroma of floral hops and earthy grains. A little bit of hops initially in the flavor but then the focus came to the creamy, caramel malts and bread-like flavors towards the finish.

Apricot body with modest head and mild hop nose. Easy, quenching hop flavor, some bitterness of fresh hops. A decent APA. Mild sour finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at GABF 2007. Dark orange gold with a white head. I can’t get much of a nose out of this one. It’s a little bit floral with only a mild hop scent. More hop presence to the taste with a bit of orange and hop tongue bite. However, only a moderately good pale ale.

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.
