Pours an amber gold with a thin but lasting crown of off white foam. Nose is hops. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is malt on the front end with mostly hops on the finish, not overly bitter. A well brewed pale ale that accompanies smoked turkey or smoke salmon very well.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice golden color with a medium off white head and very good carbonation. Aroma and taste both have a nice hop to malt balance. Seems a little tame for a pale ale but still remains rich and flavorful.

Kirby has gone native on us and left Germany for the good ol USA. Tap at the bier garten. This beer is pale yellow with a hefty head. Nice nose of malty malt. Iíd say a German malt with a good dose of Munich. Biscuits and pecan sandies. Very little hop character but the bitterness is there. Extremely well balanced in terms of aroma (how does he do that so consistently?), but this beer isnít supposed to be. Bitterness is somehow smoozed over by the malty goodness. I love the hay/understated caramel with little finish for a summer beer. I had a Fest after this and it tasted so overdone. Good effort at a new direction for my hometown brewery.

Light hoppy aroma with a bit of malt sweetness on the nose. Pretty light and very drinkable. A great beer for the summer

Bottle. Pours is clear, light amber, thin head. Aroma is a little citrus and spice. Taste is more citrus, pine and the slightest bit of earthy malt. Nice bitterness and a little astringent. A little light bodied, but VERY drinkable, you can down a 6er of this easy.

Light amber in color with a thin head. Aroma is a nice blend of pine & malts - maybe a little yeast too. Taste is a combination of citrus-like hops and a strong roasted malt flavor. I know Iím being vague, but itís hard to pinpoint exact flavors. Up front, youíre hit with the hops and that super rich "maltiness". The light bitterness slides in at the finish - itís almost sneaky. Not bad, but a little monotone for me.

Nice light hoppy aroma, begging to be tasted. The taste is smoother than I expected, with much less bitterness than I thought it would have. Real smooth, but overall nothing stands out flavor-wise. Quite drinkable overall.

US Pale is one of the better APAs Iíve had lately. Very nice sweet citrus aroma balances the hoppy bitterness in the flavor. Solid malt backbone to a high acid APA makes this one a good choice any day.

Poured a nice gold with a light fruity aroma. Taste was of malt and citrus with a mid to strong hop finish. Not a bad pale ale - actually very decent.

12 oz can. Pours a hazy a hazy gold with with medium white head. Aromas of citrus and tea; flavor is the same. Not bad for the price.
