Draft: Pours a deep yellow/gold with a light haze. Small white head and light lacing. Nose is mild and sweeter with malt than hops; a little fruity. Tastes a little grassey with some citrus hops notes. Pretty mild and uninspiring pale.

On tap at the Ram in Seattle. Copper w/ small head. Mostly just roasted malt. No hop presence. More like a disappointing amber ale.

Not much aroma, but this has a pleasant bitterness throughout. A nice biting finish, this is certainly a drinkable session pale ale.

On tap in a very well-priced sampler. Crisp hoppy nose. Golden amber in color. More citrus flavor than Big Red IPA.

Sampler @ Ram brewery: Sweet citrus hop aroma. Pale brown in color. Grapefruity hoppy taste, but balanced okay. A little dry on the palate.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Had this one at the brewpub in Schaumburg, Illinois. Clear, medium orange pour with nuanced floral hoppiness, some citrus. Not as good as the Big Red but a great session beer.

Frozen pint at Ram in Fishers, IN - Aroma is citrus hops with some dishwasher infused malts. Pours cloudy copper with a medium head and good lacing. Flavor is sweet caramel and tart earthy hops. Palate is crisp and tart. Actually not too bad for the Ram, at least it was a bit outside the box.

Ughsmash (7184) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2007
On tap in Wheeling, IL as " ’71 Pale Ale". Poured a clear lighter caramel with a tall, sticky white head. Aroma picked up sweet pale malts and caramel with a mild grapefruit presence.. simple and seemingly cheap. Flavor found light, sweet caramel and grapefruit at the core with rather high pine and grapefruit bitterness riding through the finish.. tasty. The bitterness was a touch oppressive at times, and the balance wasn’t so good.

IndianaRed (2605) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 20, 2007
On Tap at the Boise Ram. Cloudy orange/amber with a thin but dense white head. Persistant spiderweb lacing leaving a disticnt ring after each quaff. Odd malty aroma, a bit fruity. I thought they gave me the amber at first as there was so little hop aroma. Flavor was pretty light and fairly hoppy....for an amber. Weird hay like notes as well. A dissapointing Pale.
