Bottle date: Cascade donít care. 2011 The label calls this "Portland Ale",but everything else matches, so Iím rating here. A: Pours a brass ale with a single finger of bone white foam which dissipates quickly to a sheet of the same. Excellent clarity and no lacing to speak of. S: Grass, grain, sweet malts. Nice sweet alfalfa tones. usually anticipate a bit more hop on an APA, maybe a bit of fruit or pine. T: Alfalfa leads out over light pale malts and plumb into my palate and I struggle to be reminded this is (as the label says) an American Pale Ale; just not much hop going on here. M: Light bodied with higher carb than typical. Thin slick on my palate. O: Iím confused about this beer. I would be grading this way up on the scale, if this beer were called a Blonde Ale. I canít see how this is a APA - at 26 IBUís, this SRM and the flavor/nose profile. Not a bad beer by any means, but definitely not up to the style standard. Serving type: bottle 08-18-2011

Mostly clear gold colored pour with a white head. Crisp and hoppy with just enough pale malts to balance. Very floral and grassy hops in this. Nice.

I was not impressed by this pale ale. The beer poors slightly hazy coperycolor with a rapidly diminishing off white head. Aroma was somewhat floral but again not impressive. Taste was lightly bitter and had verly little malt backbone which made it light bodied for me. Better than bud though. :)

after4ever (6093) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Draft at the Stumbling Monk. Pours a cloudy bronzed medium golden amber with a dense and creamy white head that really sticks around. Mild tangy caramel and herbal nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, and herbs on the mid palate. Not really working together quite as well as I might like.

BuckeyeBoy (2649) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 11, 2011
On tap at Raccoon Lodge. Pours out golden topped with a white head. Aroma was of fresh crisp hops, lots of citrus and floral notes. Taste was more of the citrus, floral, some light bread malts, and a little sweet caramel.

dchmela (2614) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Tap at the Barrel House. Light gold pour with a thin white head. Floral, noble hop aroma. Nice light crisp malt body with just enough floral and a touch spicy hops to balance it out. Good session brew.

"A perfect choice for lager drinkers." And arenít we all? Golden, crisp and grainy beer. Drinkable. Not to be kicked out of bed.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Gold with a medium sized white head. Lightly floral and fruity hop aroma, not too intense but nice. Lightly sweet toasty, bready malt, touch of caramel, and fruity citrus in the flavor. Medium hop intensity. Medium light body with medium carbonation. Good light pale ale.

[2951-20100626] Tap. Fruity mild blueberry aroma. Clear, pale yellow body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. More fruity yeast in the flavour. Light body. Tasty.
