COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Golden amber with a fizzy white head. Good strong orange and grapefruit aroma and taste with notes of malt and grain.

Bottle from Del Cerro Liquors. Hue is a cloudy pale orange with minimal white head. Nose is grainy malts with light floral/grassy hops. Flavor is bread and cereal grain-like malts with moderate hop bitterness and floral/earthy flavors, finishes slightly bitter. Overall, a fairly standard example of a pale ale, easy drinking and balanced but no standout qualities here.

On tap at some place in Chino Hills. Color was a creamy, orange to amber; was in a frozen glass which was lame, so I let it warm up a tad. Flavor was more malt, caramel and fruit, than hops. Some floral hopping. Aroma was similar, with a more pronounced fruity presence. Just ok.

This was one hell of a beer. Strong hops aroma and flavor this was near a NW IPA flavor. This was a wonderful beer. Great malt build I really liked this beer, The hops where just right. WOW

Clear amber with a eggshell white head. Mild floral hop aroma. Medium body. Decent bready pale malt flavor is lightly sweet. Nice floral hop taste to finish. Not that bad.

This one was surprising - I kind of expected it to be hoppier than it was. The head brewer was explaining that they had a tough time getting hops this year - was the lower hop presence a result? Very drinkable, but not a beer I’d recommend for a hop head. Metallic bitterness, and almost an undesirable finish. Subtle malty flavor on the palate.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2008 Re-rate. Tastes a couple of other APAs and realized I needed to change this rating.

This American Pale Ale pours a medium brown color from a 22oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel and sweet, with a touch of fruitiness. A medium to light bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are caramel and fruity. The hops are kind of mild, sort floral, citrusy and earthy. Nice balance. Decent carbonation. The hop profile is very weak for a Pale Ale. It’s a tasty amber or altbier but a little mild for an APA. I mean there is hardly any hops at all. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
