COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops with an American accent. Disarmingly drinkable.

milewide (1580) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Weak grain aroma, and nothing but grain in the taste. Did have some lingering hop bitterness---that wasn’t in the aroma or taste. Light amber color, and thin body. Not a memorable brew!

TXBadger (1567) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2014
Good everyday pale ale. Pours a nice amber hue. Light hoppy pine on the nose. Pine and bread balance on the palate, with just a bit of hop bitterness on the finish.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Can. Pours a light pale golden with a small white head. Aroma...smells like it’s a bit older. Sweet and caramely with every little hops presence, and what is there is a touch piney and very dumbed down to the sweet candy. Flavor is a touch hoppier but only in the lightly bitter finish. Still mostly malty candy caramel and toffee. Light to medium body and a sharp carbonation. Bleh, this isn’t tasting great

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2008
12oz bottle. Pleasant hoppy aroma of light pine, some cedar, grass and citrus zest. Pours bright gold with a thin white head. Plenty of toasty bready malt with some minimal lemon zest bitterness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. Finishes with some steely dryness.

AWISLguy (1423) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2014
On tap at the local pizza place. Pours a pale orange with a spongey white head. Aroma has citrus & pine with light caramelly malts. Taste follows, although in subtle parts. Light to medium bodied. Finishes light malty with some citrus. Shrug? Not annoying in any fashion but nothing over the top either.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Pretty pale yellow, small layer of white bubbles. Rustic dried grapefruit aroma, pleasant woody nose like Pride of Ringwood. Very clean lemony malt, melon and pollen hops, brisk and nicely balanced.

beerbaaron (1353) - Arizona, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Pours clear (turning hazy after full pour) orange amber. Very small white head. Old bottle? Aroma is muddled; light bready, perhaps a touch of grass, a little something else that’s not really apparent.. Flavor has a little more to say; bready, light fruity, pleasant, thin, easy enough to put down. Lighter medium body. On the sweeter side. Very very mild bitterness if at all. Slightly dry finish. Its a good backyard beer...

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2007
I can’t believe I’m the second person to rate this beer. Sample from the brewery. Clear amber color with small white head. Caramel and sweet aroma that was matched in the flavor but also clove and banana aroma as well. Med full body. Very standard pale without any hops to speak of.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Had this one on draught at the brewery in Middleton, Wisconsin. Clear, medium golden pour with a wispy white head, light floral hoppy nose, nuanced bitterness but plenty of floral, piney hops. Strong but balanced finish. Great!

BigBeer45 (1273) - Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2010 Bottle from Champanes, has a clear bright, medium gold pour with some effervescence, produced a white one to two finger head that dissipated to a ring, aromas of bread, faint floral and citrus hops, light pear fragrance, hints of toasted malt, little sweetness on the nose, flavors of toasted malt with some bread, grain and light fruit, has a crisp finish with some hop bitterness, mouth feel is a little less than medium with some hop bitterness, an ok Pale Ale, pretty easy to drink, and I think this would taste good with Pizza.
