COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This crisp, zesty American Pale is characterized by the sharp bitterness missing in many domestic pale ales. The clean finish and slight fruity notes help make our flagship brew a delightful treat.

Ungstrup (29661) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2007
Bottled. A hazy orange-amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet with a weird fruit note and a light touch of yeast. The flavor is sweet with light notes of alcohol, and spices - especially coriander, and some notes of peaches. The body is watery. I guessed this as a Belgian style - though a boring one - not hoppy enough to be an APA.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Skyview. Hazy, amber golden with an off-white head. Malty nose with a light whiff of aroma hops. Fairly light-bodied with a subdued malt base - slightly biscuity. Very dry with some peachy notes, The finish is quite hoppy. 171107

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2007
Cloudy orange-amber color. Strange aroma; it’s not strong, with grass, manure, ripe apples. Smooth mouthfeel, good and strong toffee flavor, and strong hopping too. Good, but something’s odd.

Sammy (8843) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2006
Yellow pale but good amount of lace. Astringent in mouth dry finish. Passable pale bitter. Apple juicy taste. Quite drinkable.Understated English style carbonation. Unknown ABV but I guess it to be close to 6%. Some like it, not bad. Thank you again JPM30.

12 ounce bottle from Steve’s Mineral Point in Madison, WI. Pours a clear copper color with a large frothy offwhite head. Good head retention and lacing. Nice floral hop aroma with some faint resin and caramel. The taste is bitter herbal and floral hops, some apple notes and a toasty malt finish. Medium bodied. Nice pale.

crossovert (7721) - Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Basic, but a step above other pale ales. IT has a slight bit of hops, and an unannoying malt bill.

Ughsmash (7172) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear medium golden with a short cap of white head. Aroma picked up some darker leafy notes along with cereal notes, a pinch of lemon zest, and some floral. The flavor had sweet cereal and caramel notes at the base supporting primarily pine and floral bitterness and some light fresh fruits.. rather tasty. Medium-bodied with nice balance between the sweets and the bitters.. little slick on the back-end. Tasty brew.
