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.

Pale golden color. Great lacing. No head. Dank hops in the aroma. Taste is very hoppy. No citrus but lots of grass and pine. Very easy drink. I liked this one and could make it an all day session-er.

Aroma is a little light but otherwise this is a solid APA. Good orange color with lots of bubbles and a solid head. Aroma is bread with some spicey citrus notes. Taste is mild toffee with some citrus. Nice bittering effect at the end.

Yellow, orange color, small head very slight haze. Citrus hops, slight malt sweetness. Flavor fairly bitter for the style and the amount of hops flavor. Sweet finish.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2007
Got this one as part of the sampler at the brewpub in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Not particularly bitter for a pale, but pretty good beer. Dark yellow pour with a thin head, light nose of lemon and flowers, mild bitterness and hoppiness. Okay.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JUN 29, 2008
12oz bottle. ~10mo old bottle. Wildflower honey and orange in the aroma along with a little biscuit. Smells great. Hazy copper color with a small, but pretty, off-white head. Taste is resiny and bitter with citrus and light pine. The malt shows itself briefly, near the end, but the finish is all hops and hops bitterness. I wonder what this is like fresh, probably a good old Wisconsin Hop Bomb similar to Ale Asylum’s Hopalicious.

ccex (1188) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2012
12 oz bottle pours a clear golden amber color with moderate white head. Aroma has very noticeable citrus and floral hops and some caramel malts. Taste is slightly bitter with a chalky, nutty finish. Body is light to medium without too much carbonation. Easily drinkable and very enjoyable.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Light orange color, HUGE stationary head (I think this one got a double shot of the CO2) that remained for the entire brew, some lacing. Aroma is apples, pears, and a cheerio like aroma. Sweet malt and citrus are the dominating flavors although a little spice is also present. Decent carbonation, thin bodied. A solid APA.

DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2011
This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

doubelknv3 (1081) - Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Very light, mild citrus aroma. Golden, carbonated with white head. Citrus, sour fruit (apricot?) and metallic flavor notes. Lack of hop notes; watery with mild bitter finish.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - NOV 16, 2004
Pours a lighter reddish orange. No head. Aroma of malt, and light citrus hop notes. Flavor is strong and dominated by hops. Piney hops. Palate is thin overall. A decent brew.
