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.

A very smooth and accomplished pale. Crisp and refreshing with nice hop character and solid taste throughout. A great session beer that goes great with almost any food.

Bomber from Hi-Time. Pours gold with a creamy/foamy white head. Aroma is citrus, a hint of floral perfume, and roasty malt. Med body. Flavor is citrus/floral followed by excessively roasty malt. Finish is just a bit too malty for my preference. But the hop certainly helps.

22 FL. OZ ($4.99) First beer I’ve had by the maker. Thought that it would be cool to get an APA as i like IPAs so much. this is like a watered down IPA without the good hoppy taste you’re looking for. a pussified IPA :(

I hate this style of pale ale. Tastes like cat piss to me in a weird way. Had this on draft at union ale in Santa Barbara. Golden pour with white head. Honey and dirty aroma. Taste is wheat fruit and kind of skunky.

BlackHaddock (3605) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
12 oz Bottle on 15th March 2014 before a meal in The Rusty Pelican, Newport Beach. Pours with a slight haze, orange to Amber in colour with a head that did not want to be there. Citrus hop aroma, tempered with a mild maltiness. The taste was also a pleasant blend of citrusy hops and a subtle malt undertone. Body depth suited the brew and I thoroughly enjoyed my bottle.

Leighton (10699) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Draft at the brewery taproom - Fullerton. Pours clear, bright gold with a lasting, white cream head. The nose holds light pine needles, hay, melon and lemon rind. Light-medium sweet flavor with moderate bitterness, some mango, apricot, pine needles. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Balanced finish with some sweet, lightly dried pale malts, more tropical fruits and pine. Good one.

22 oz from Costco Californina. Still cant believe I can buy good beer at costco in california. PA beer laws are so frickin idiotic. PA Politicians suck. Nice mild Orange aroma upon opening. I always enjoy trying PAle ales because it is so much harder to make a pale ale rise above the average than it is to do the same with an IPA. This one makes a decent effort, but is not quite dry enough nor hop-forward enough for my tastes. Decent., but barely rises above average.

GT2 (8354) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Tap at Maggies Pub in Santa Fe Springs, CA. Clear orange with webby white lacing. No carbonation bubbles. Nose is thicker toffee, sugary, stale apple juice. Taste is stale, papery, Oxidized probably. Mealy, dusty, heavy paper finish.

jkwood04 (3851) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 16, 2013
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly spicy hops plus some pale and caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad pale, but not the best.

llcooldave (1076) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Purchased at a tiny liquor store near LAX on a recent business trip. Pours a nice orange copper color in the glass. Immediate aroma of citrus and piney hops. Interesting flavor of a citrus rinds and wood notes followed by a clean dryness on the palate. Overall, a real nice find. I’ll be on the look out for more of this next time I’m in LA.

BVery (6081) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at the brewpub. Clear orange yellow pour with a small spotty white head. Cool beer - citrusy, but almost no bitterness. Sweet, but not overly so. Very well balanced. Easy drinker.
