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.

I found this APA to be a bit thin in mouthfeel for my tastes, but it had a rather pleasant floral quality that I enjoyed and found to be somewhat unique among APAs. The appearance of this beer was ugly. Head was nice, white, fluffy, and plentiful. However, the body of this beer was an inconsistent color from top to bottom (sort of gold on bottom, sort of rust on top). Aroma was hoppy, but rather rosey floral more than it was piney, citrus, or grassy. Flavor was pretty decent...a perfume-y floral taste with a mild amount of bitterness. Mouthfeel was a bit thin I thought. It seems like everyone in the world makes an IPA/APA/DIPA, and as a result, there are many bad ones. This beer is not one of those, and offers a somewhat unique floral character that makes it worth recommending.

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.

Decent head, pale gold color, nice floral notes, finishes with cereal and a bit of hops bitterness. Pleasant, would drink again.

Man, this is going down a lot smoother and tasting a lot better then the half dozen PBR’s I had at the bar. Good stuff, but almost taste more like an IPA.

Bottle picked up at a Binny’s by a good friend. Pour is slightly cloudy amber, with a cloudy head that recedes to a thin layer with lots of legs on the side walls. Aroma is, well hops quite obviously, sweet malt too. Tastes hop bitter, but it also has an element of soapiness too. Good , but not my favorite of the style.

Pours a slightly hazy lemon yellow with a fair layer of white head. Aroma is mild bread and caramel. Flavor is a mix of salty and sweet with malty hop notes. Body is light with medium carbonation.

Pours a pale golden yellow. Some small lacing left on my glass. Aroma is caramel and floral hops. Flavor is loaded with caramel sweetness and some hop bitterness in the finish. Rather unimpressive.

Bottle. Pours a pale slightly hazy yellow color with medium head. Flavor is soft and malty, slight bread notes. Hop presence is zesty and slightly fruity. Medium bodied, the softness of the water comes across nicely. Nice session brew here.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Clear pale amber pour, large white head. Good retention and lacing. Modest grapefruit hops aroma. Flavor leads off with grapefruit, then into hops bitterness and a very bread-crusty malt profile. Lasting quinine bitterness in the finish, offset by a little bit of lingering tartness. Thin bodied, rather dry, refreshing.
