2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A drinkable pale ale that, while not outstanding, felt more interesting than most of their lineup the night I visited.
Gentle spicy, citrusy hoppiness with considerable earthy background. No excess of acidity. Light-bodied and aimed at drinkability. Crisp body. Short-lasting, but effective bitterness.
Minimally toasted malts where it feels like it would be a fine match. Dull clear light amber body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: A well balanced typical American Pale Ale. Good session beer.
How: Tap at brewpub (SmokeHouse location, AleHouse #2)
The look: Clear dark golden body with a small white head
In long: Nice rich malt profile for a Pale Ale. Toasted malts were just enough caramelized to meet the leafy fruity hops. Medium bitterness with a citrus skin flavour. Well put together for sure but lacked the crisp freshness feel that makes me go wow! with a brewpub Pale Ale. A good beer although so typical of the style that it will stick to my memory like a politician sticks to his promises.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub, 10/23/06: Nice visual draw ... deep amber with a poofy head. Not much past that. Vapid -- virtually no flavor. Body is good, otherwise just an even-keeled beer. Probably sells well, though. Light floral finish. The more I drank, though, the more I liked ... settled into a decent session beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Smokehouse. Clear amber pour with a medium beige head. Mostly malt in the aroma with a touch of earthy hops. Malty and earthy flavor, but not much going on. Sorta weak and thin. I think they may have been going for drinkability on this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, medium woody brown, ringing thin head. Orange malty aroma. Nicely bittered, medium sweet at first then drying out. Bittering seems powdery at timees. Aftertaste is faint chocolate in the high palate, bitter on the side of the tongue. Nice balance with some character.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the tap at Ale House No. 1. Dark amber in color with a big beige head and great lace. Lots of hops, tending toward fruity apple and citrus flavors. Well balanced and great with food.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours a surprising dark color, copper with a light tan head, not much retention or lacing.
The aroma is lots of hops, seems like some cascade but that is it, not very balanced.
The taste is light hops throughout with an unwelcome metallic finish.
The feel is ok and drinkability is cut back by the metal aftertaste.
To me its not an pale ale but an IPA and so-so one at that.
