Pours a pale straw with moderate head. Grassy sweet notes in aroma. Lemon, honey and grass which is balanced by a citrus rind hopping. A lovely beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A really tasty offering from the small Champaign brewery, Blind Pig. Has a very light amber color, hop medley with a shining presence of Cascade Hops. Crisp, bitter, and snappy. Loved it.

On tap @ the brewpub. Light orange amber, floral fruity hops in abundance. Fresh and tasty, lighter malt profile allows the fresh hops to really shine.

On tap at the Blind Pig Brewery. This has a been a staple here during my time living in Champaign. Its always solid, medium bodied, nicely bittered with citrus notes, and well balanced. The pour is hazy, medium thick in appearance, and burnt orange in color, with a fairly standard creamy white head. Light, nutty herbs, cereal grains, and light caramel in the aroma, but the prominent players are really citrus and melon fruits. A refreshing and appealing nose, though in some batches, a certain soapy quality comes out in both aroma and flavor. The body is medium full for an apa and slightly chewy. Again, some good mixed citrus bitter and melon fruits. Light grasses, grainy rice cereal and cookie malts. Overall, a fairly straight forward ale, but high quality with a widely distributed appeal.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is some grassy grapefruits, florals, a light caramel, a few resins, and a touch of bread. Flavor is similar. Grassy, slightly juicy grapefruits, lemons, and resins with a light caramel to balance. A touch of bread before this finishes dry with a light-medium, grassy bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a light-medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid pale ale. Straightforward and easy drinking with a nice hopping and light caramel.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2010
Draft at Blind Pig. Pours a hazy pale yellow with nice and sticky head. Nose is fresh Simcoe. Full of resin and piney, this one kinda reminds me of Fat Head’s. Light fruitiness is apparent, though the yeast character is virtually non-existent. On taste, soft bitterness from a restrained hand in the bittering department that got heavy in the taste/aroma. Great beer to showcase hops, though body is a touch thin. Very good.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Draft at Brewpub. Unfiltered and dry hopped with Simcoe. Pours a hazy yellow amber with a dissipating white head. Fruity ale ester aroma. Lighter side of medium bodied with a nice earthy, but refreshing texture. Malt profile is extremely pale, perhaps a tad wheaty, that is countered by a nice, non aggressive citrus rind bitterness. Finish is dry and somewhat acidic in nature. This is sort of outside the box of commercial examples of a Pale Ale, as it is more a hoppy summer ale. Whatever, this is excellent.
