crazyvin (1911) - New York, USA - NOV 20, 2013
A clear caramel color body with a white head that had good retention and nice lace. Initial aroma was sweet mostly from caramel malts, but there was a generic sweetness to it. Hops were slightly bitter. Seemed to have good aspects but lacked an individual character. Flavor was similar to the aroma. However there was more bitterness. Finish was slightly dry and smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Slightly hazy dark amber, good bubbly off-white head that slowly drops to a full cover, thin streaks of lace. Taste is a combination of malt and hops that are not in sync with each other. Each on its own is agreeable, but together, they are in conflict. Carbonation plays a big role in the quick to dissipate finish. Only fair.

ARH (337) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2014
On tap and poured into an imperial pint-style sample glass. The aromas are fairly muted, but the notes that are present are a light citrus, grain, some floral, and a light toasted caramel. It’s a clear amber beer with a white, tight bubbled head with a moderate retention and lacing. It’s a medium sweet with a light bitterness. The medium malty body has a slick texture and mildly active carbonation. It has more qualities of an amber beer than an APA - it finishes with toasted caramel and cola. There’s a bit of nuttiness and the aftertaste is a touch floral.

Draft at the Rock Island Bent River location. Poured a mostly clear orange color with a small white head. Aroma was light hop notes - a touch of grapefruit and citrus, some light sweet malt. Nice light floral hops, some good balanced malt character. Sweet, but pretty well balanced. Easy to drink.

Pours hazy orange with a large yellowish white head. Smells mildly hoppy with a mild malt backbone. Taste has some bitterness and a touch of malt sweetness. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Bent River Paddle Wheel Pale Ale finishes with a quick bitterness.
