COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A well-balanced, highly hopped American Ale, similar to those known througout the American Northwest. An excellent example of a big-flavored, hand-crafted beer with the sharp, clean, bitter finish of Cascade hops.

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2014
On tap at the brewpub in San Antonio where it was listed as Cinco Peso Pale at 5% ABV. Appearance: Pours amber with a semi-durable head that leaves good lacing. Feel: Near medium body and medium carbonation. Flavor: Appropriately hoppy. Some malt flavor with a dominate input from hops. Moderately bold for style. . O: good but not great.

This pale ale is very aromatic displaying toffee, vanilla, and flowers. The body and bitterness are in perfect balance. It comes through with a long finish which is definitely Cascade. A solid brew, enjoyable.

ben4321 (3750) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 1/23/14

Aroma: The aroma is light hops, a little citrus, with floral and caramel notes
Appearance: This beer pours a copper-orange color with a small head
Flavor: The taste is much the same with some light sweetness and light bitterness
Palate: The body is on the lighter side, with a clean finish on the mouth
Overall Impression: There isn’t too much to say here. It is a fine APA, but nothing special. It is both on the simple side and on the light side.

22415brewery (371) - redmond, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a light golden with some light amber highlights, clear, average head with average retention. A one dimensional aroma from Cascade hops, typical grapefruit and orange-peel like aromas with a little light caramel malt in the background. Flavor like the hop aroma is also a bit one-dimensional, very light candy-like sweetness, some cracker-like malt notes, and a medium amount of bittering. Another example of a very simple pale ale recipe which has been executed fairly well. This beer has a clean finish however it either needs more finishing hops to carry it or it might have been an old beer. Weak overall.

Copper with whisps of off-white head. Mildly hoppy and balanced malt body, the hops definitely feature tho. Aroma is mildy hoppy.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. The beer pours an orange-white color with a white head. The aroma is very well balanced. I get some caramel and toffee malt as well as some pine from the hops. The flavor is more of the same. The beer is very well balanced and the malt keeps the beer from being bitter, while still allowing some hop flavor to come through. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Golden color, white thin head. Smells of citrus and hops. Hops come out in the flavor more, not bad though.

This one smells fruity to me. Nice golden color. Taste is also a little fruity accompanied by hops. After taste on the tongue is on the bitter side. Not too thick but not too thin.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2011
On tap at the brewpub as "South Alamo Pale Ale." Pours a crystal clear, burnt gold colored body with a frothy, finger-width, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is watered down citrus pines with a light caramel sweetness. A touch of bread too. Flavor is a bit better. Thin caramel and some dough with a good amount of earthy, citrusy pines. Finishes dry with a light-moderate bitterness and a touch of pale malt. Medium length aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty straightforward pale ale. Decently hopped with just a touch of malt. Not bad, but fairly unremarkable.
