generallee08 (506) - New York, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The label on the back has a brief description of the beer and it lists the abv at 5.2%. Appearance: Midwestern Pale Ale has very thick and creamy off white head which hangs on well. It sits on top of a deep golden/light amber body with some hazing and yeast sediment floating around. As I drink it makes lots of cool lacing on the glass. Smell: It has a sweet bready and malty character with a light herbal, almost mineral like hop note for balance. Taste / Palate: Up front it has sweet honey and orange marmalade flavor with a smooth bready base underneath. Light herbal and floral hop notes move in and a good balance of hop bitterness to the finish. It has a solid medium to full body and the palate feels smooth and balanced with carbonation.

troyc (2422) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2014
[Bottle] Pours a straw color with a nice half inch of dense white head. Toasted grains and mild grassy hops in the nose. Tasting notes include some bread, grass, grain, light floral and even lighter pine flavors. Average to better than average mouthfeel. Not a ton happening, but a nice beer anyways.

notalush (4748) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Hazy gold - minimal, soapy lace - nose is crackery and lightly bitter, a little floral, not much else - soft carbonation, but a medium-full mouthfeel - malt character is dry, but bready - hop character is earthy, lightly citric, medium bitter - a clean sweetness adds some notes of orange to the finish - it’s a decent pale.

This was an alright beer a bit light, not enough hop flavor, but from what there was it was a only a bit bitter ans somewhat spicy, as if a bit of rye was used, the malt base was good

Just fine pale. Cloudy gold pour. Biscuits and hay on the nose. Slight spice and fruit sweetness in taste. Bitter and dry finish. A little weak mouthfeel. Not bad, but not special.

12oz bottle pour. Cloudy orange with full head. Toast aromas. Hay and grass as well. All pulled into taste. Lighter body. A little nutty. Great, for what it is.
