3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2005 Hoppy and light. Tastes sweet, but not too sweet. If youíre in the KC area, enjoy a few of these. Re-Rate 2/28/03- I drink this beer at least once a week, but tonights batch is the best yet. A little more toastiness in the malts. NOW IS THE TIME TO TRY! Any good beer fan should.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light and pungeant. Small hop bitter and bite coupled with a smooth finish. Decent but not spectacular. A good pale ale entry beer for the Budweiser crowd.

Nice hoppy APA, served on tap with minimal head. Hops dominate aroma and taste, fruity without being sweet. OK anber color and somewhat high carbonation. Clean finish. Nice, very drinkable.

not as hoppy as it might be, with nothing much special about it. Decent, but would spend my money elsewhere.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slighty hazed dark amber color with a fairly small head. Citric hops aroma with only a touch of malt. A medium body. Cascade dominates with undertones of caramel malt. A very typical american pale.

Pretty damn good brew. Especially since I donít really dig pale aleís. Very hoppy and tasted a little citrus in it. Re Rate: Not nearly hoppy enough for my tastes now. A decent pale overall but there are so many more better ones out there

Incredible flavor for a pale ale. Full of personality and great with meals.

For anyone who thinks THIS beer was too hoppy (and there were a few), this AINíT all that hoppy. Itís got a nice slight touch of sourness and mild hoppiness thatís relatively low for an APA. A little light on the malt, which is surely why it got penalized in the ratings, but I like its drinkability, though itís not particularly representative of the APA style. Itís sort of a ílight APAí.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2004 Golden in color, small white head that leaves quickly, light malty aroma, clean balanced malt hop flavor, watery and thin mouthfeel, really light, crisp clean finish, all in all a decent english pale ale.
