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.

SHANER4 (467) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 26, 2008
12 oz. bottle..Poured hazy amber color with small white head. Sweet malty aroma. Tasted more like an amber ale rather than pale ale, had a sweet malty grain taste with a bitter dry aftertaste. Overall a good beer and would purchase again.

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.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2004
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.

tomxcs (320) - Berkeley, 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.

dekester1 (309) - 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.

keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2008
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.

Poured from bottle. Clear yellow with thick creamy head that sticks to the glass. Aroma is sweet treat and bread, vanilla, slight lemon zest. Taste is lemon, pine bitterness, Bready sweet body, caramel, pine on the finish.

Sampler flight at the brewery. Dark golden-straw colored pour, thin head, sweet nose, mild hops and some malt flavor.

robloc303 (268) - Erie, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Pours copper color, nose of flowers, citrus, bread, yeast. Real bitter up front, followed by nice bread notes, a bit of sweet honey and oats. Not a big pale fan, but this is very well balanced.
