Palomino Pale Ale is our interpretation of an American style Pale Ale. We brew this beer using only the finest American barley and hops and add even more hops as it ages to give it a great balanced citrusy taste and aroma. This beer is sure to please anyone who enjoys the refreshing taste of American hops.

Sweet caramel and coffee on the nose accompanied by light pines. Pours a light golden brown with a small white top. Tastes of malty caramel and bread/oats with a pleasant amount of leafy hops. Slight bitterness on the finish with a thin texture and light carbonation. Overall, a pretty decent brew, although malts slightly overpowering hops. Iíd give this a C+ rating.

Beer has a golden color with a small head. Malty aroma but the taste is pretty refreshing. Slight earthy taste with a dash of citrus.

25 nov 2011, tap at the brewery. Bright medium yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nice grapefruit rind hips. Thin body and fizzy. Light lemony citrus hops w a bit of a gold (heavy lager) flavor. Very nice.

[Bottle] Clear copper appearance, decent head formation. Sweet caramel, toffeeish malt aroma with a little grapefruit. Sweet crystal malts palate, a little sugarry, decent amount of grapefruit bitterness in the finish balances well but still a touch too sugarry in the aftertaste. Worthwhile local pale ale.

Bottle. Aroma is bready malts with some caramel. Fruity hops, a hint of pine. Pours golden with a large white head, retention is average, leaves some clumpy lacing. Flavor strikes a nice balance between the malt and hops. Bitterness is present but subdued, some citrus and floral hops, little bit of resin, bread and some caramel sweetness. Light-medium body with average carbonation. Nice easy-going pale ale, could definitely tackle a few without feeling too out of sorts...

A: The pour is a bright amber color with a finger or two of white head and some mild lacing. S: Definitely hearty and bready, much more so than a 5.5% would usually seem. Some citrus and floral hop aromas, mostly orange and lemon peel, and some pine is present as well. T: Again, the bread is center stage here. There are plenty of floral hops which really seem to characterize the beer. Still, a good citrus bite is there and gives some oranges and maybe grapefruit. Bitter and piney on the finish. M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation and a crisp, dry finish. D: Not the best of the Bootleggerís offerings, but a solid pale ale that you could drink with ease.

19-Jan-11 (22-oz bottle: Purchased 03-Nov-10 for $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Tustin, CA) This is a pleasant, easy-drinking pale ale. Hops flavors are orange citrus and grass, offering gentle bitterness that fades off the palate quickly, but the malt is grainy and somewhat husky in flavor, and that huskiness in the finish becomes the focus, bringing the beer down a little. The malty aromas leave a little to be desired; cereal, corn and grain husks, while the aroma of the hops is mostly just grassy. Light-medium in body with medium carbonation and a dry, somewhat crisp mouthfeel. Hazy, golden-orange in color with half an inch of off-white head that settles quickly to a scattered dusting. A few spots of lace remain on the glass. Meh, itís drinkable, but itís very plain and Iím feeling no compelling reason to finish the bottle.

Had on tap at Bootleggers Brewery. Pours a clear yellow/orange with no head and slight carbonation. Nicely balanced aromas and flavors with a good malt flavor and slight hop bitterness. Good flavor and a well balanced pale. Nothing special, but again, nothing horrible either. Pretty middle of the road.
