22oz bottle. Pours a clear, light golden colored body with a finger-width, foamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate, soapy lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened pale malts with a touch of caramel and a light grassy hopping. Some florals, lemons, and bread. Flavor is pretty standard, but nice. Pale malts with a light honey-bread and caramel. An even amount of lemon-grass and floral hops making this pretty tasty and mildly hopped. Finishes dry with a medium-light, grassy, slightly resiny and piney bitterness that leaves a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Lighter body and moderately fizzy carbonation. Overall, not a bad pale ale. Has a nice, grassy lemon flavor with a lighter pale and bready malt balance. Nothing crazy here, but easy drinking and enjoyable.

From a 220z bomber from Pick’s Liquors poured into a Lager glass. Almost no head, dissipating quickly. Lightly golden in color, with lots of carbonation. Almost looks like a domestic light beer. Aroma is pleasant. Light, floral hops and a bit of bready malt. Good amount of bitterness with light sweetness. Very light bodied, thin texture and average carbonation. Decent bitter finish, going away very abruptly. Not bad overall. There are pales I like better and pales I like less. At $3.99 a bottle though, this beer is a steal!

Pours pale with a big white head. Strong aroma of fresh grassy hops but not too bitter. Dry cereal flavor with a little amber/carmel malt. Light-Medium bodied. A really good example of an American pale ale.

HonkeyBra (3345) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2011
My first experience with a Southern Illinois brewery. Golden pour with slight orange tint with a big rocky white head. Aroma of grassy hops, some leafy hop notes too. Light honey bread and pale malt. Light toasted cereal notes. Flavor of subtle leafy hops, mild grassiness. Fairly dry, mild toasted and cereal malt. Lighter bodied for a pale, carbonation boarders on fizziness. Finishes on a fairly bitter hop note. Pretty nice pale ale.

This 22 oz bomber was sent to me courtesy of Strkzone. It poured a hazy light amber with a robust off-white head that had excellent retention and decent lacing. The nose is caramel malts with floral and grassy hops. Medium body with a smooth and clean mouthfeel. Flavor is a good balance between light malts and hop bitterness, which carries over into the finish. A very nice version of APA that was good to the last drop.

Strykzone (4912) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2011
A ESBLS tasting bottle. This looks like a hefe with that hazy funkiness. A lemon grass aroma. Light tart citrus flavor wit some pepper spice, caramel, and that lemongrass again. A tart acidic finish. A decent pale ale.

A new beer introduction at GTMW 2010 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with a thick off-white head that has some nice retention and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, grassy hops and some green vegetables. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of roasted and dried caramel malt, a hint of tangerine and some grassy hops. Finish has a surprisingly semi-sweet finish with a touch of orange/tangerine zest aftertaste and a mild English style bitterness that slowly disappears. Right in between both American and an English Pale Ale is best to describe this Pale Ale.
