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.

Draft @ Hilltop in Stevens Point. Really pale yellow in the glass, macro-swill appearance. Aroma is subdued, but some decent fruit and hop character. Taste is watery and fairly bland, with some citrus and a decent kjick from the hops @ the end. All in all - pretty pedestrian, maybe a little less.

Deep, slightly hazy copper color with a nice white head. Aroma and flavor are dominated by hops with a bitter finish and hints of caramel and grape fruit.

A little hazy, straw yellow with a rocky white head. Crisp hoppiness. Piney with some fruity malt. Lower body makes it a quaffable drink, but hoppy for a ’sconny beer. Like it.

dekester1 (355) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Poured a nice deep golden amber with a modest head and lace that remained thoughout the drink. Aroma was mainly of malts with a slight hint of hoppy fruitiness. Taste started with malts and quickly slid into citrus tones with a moderate to heavy hop finish. Overall, this is very good quality but my rating may be slightly lower since I am not a big fan of heavy hops.

MaltOne (322) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Pours medium gold, with a slight haze.Moderate white head. Aroma is mostly hops, with a slight citrus note. flavor is resin, citrus pith. Palate is quite dry, hop bitter is dominate, though a malt framework makes it smooth and drinkable. Crisp, refreshing. Good hot day thirst quencher. Nothing special.

tomxcs (321) - California, USA - JUN 14, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2004 Amber body with a thin, soapy head. Aroma of floral hops and some citrus. A flavor with malts & hops of a good APA with decent hop bitterness at the end, intruding on the maltiness. Low carbonation. Another good brew from Central Waters.

A really pleasant pale ale, not extraordinary in any way, nothing wrong either. Sweet citrus and bready aromas. Decent amount of bitterness that washes over the tongue, very solid bready malt backbone.

Pours a pretty orange/bronze with a good finger worth of solid off-white head. Beer appears somewhat cloudy, but tons of tiny bubbles race to the top throughout. Very nice orange fruit aroma. Good bitterness in the taste but leaves as quickly as it appears. If I were drinking this in a blind taste test, I’d think it was an IPA rather than an American Pale. Well done.

Purchased at bottle shop in Philly. Just now noticed that is was bottled in Nov of 2011, so 10 months old (bummer). However, this pale ale still has a nice dry crisp hoppy character with a unique spiciness that I found appealing. I would like to taste a freshly bottled brew of this. This would be a nice session beer.
