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.

Bottle thanks to Secret Santa! Pours a hazy amber gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has sweet grains and sweet citrus with some touch of pineapple. Flavor has sweet citrus and pineapple with a hint of bitter citrus and a sweet grain backbone.

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 26, 2014
22oz bottle - Aroma - lemon rind, pine sap with some fresh bread dough Appearance - bright gold body, super clear, fluffy off-white 2-finger head Mouthfeel - medium bodied, feels heavier than a regular APA somehow Flavor - malt forward APA, some piney hops to help this from being overly sweet, a touch of mineral water. Clean, quick finish. Overall - Reminds me in many ways of SNPA on tap. A little malty, but no flaws and drinkable. Nicely priced too.

Bottle pour. Clear golden with a creamy white head. Yeast, floral, hop, and light malt aroma. Thick medium body. Very light taste. Roasted malts, and a little hoppy aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 :(

kaser (3124) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2014
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 (4150) - 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 (11893) - 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.
