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.

Aroma is yeast and malts with some citrus, very reminiscent of a bitter. The flavor has a nice hop bite to it with citrus and bread as well, that leads to bitter finish. Very close to an English interpretation of an APA, unique and pretty good.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2011 Pale orange body, high clarity. Slim cap of foam, recedes to a ring connected to an island. Looks fairly typical for the style. Nondescript grainy pale malt aroma, hops are somewhat grassy. Dry and bitter, very simple with ample grassy hop bitterness. Light malt presence, buttered bread, pretty light with a slightly mellow feel. Some dried citrus peel hop flavor, though the grassiness dominates. Quenching and drinkable, suited best to warm weather. Seems to fit the profile of an English Pale more than American, fairly mild overall with no flaws to speak of. An easy drinking "simple by design" session ale aimed squarely at craft novices to ease them into drinking better beer. Simplicity is underrated... obviously no one is trying to reinvent the wheel here.

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!

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.

Bomber. Pours hazy gold with thin white head. Aroma is straw. Flavor is straw and a little citrus. Tastes like a lager (but a good one at that).

UPDATED: APR 5, 2012 Slightly hazy golden with a more than fair white head. Aroma is pale malt and grass. Taste is sweet pale malt and a little hop bitterness. That’s it. Plain and simple and well balanced. Very good 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.

This is a decent pale ale. Light appearance, medium body, with slightly floral and grassy aroma and a musty aftertaste.

Still more notes from the 2011 MWBF. The bit from a bottle, so it’s kind of a cloudy, hazy yellow with a little bit of foam. Nice citrus hop to it. Drinks very nicely with good APA malts and hop backup. Yet another APA that is working its magic with me.
