Tap. Chicago area - Solid American Style Pale Ale from The Ram - one of my favorite Chicago area brew pubs. Solid hoppy nose and floral finish. A good solid pale. Very drinkable. I always get one while I’m there. Recommended.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
a fair to midland APA. I find this to have a bit of a watered down generic flavor for an APA. Calling it like it is- Its a beer made by a brew pub catering to the BMC crowd.

I thought this was a pretty good pale ale for a chain. Good balance and hop flavor not too much lingered in my mouth, hint of rye.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted on tap at the Fort Collins Horserooth location. Light pale, slightly hazy appearance. Slight hoppy aroma. For a pale ale, the malty character was pretty big. Not all that hoppy. Mediocre pale ale.
