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.

arkurzynski (2149) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Very pale amber with fluffy white head. Aroma of light caramel candy and herbal/vegetal hops. Flavor is solid pine and, to a much lesser extent, citrus-like hop bitterness. Very little malt coming through. Finishes with residual citrus and pine.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 6, 2008
This beer pours an amber body, and just like the description says, it has a very sharp bitterness, that is a little unbalanced in my opinion. Hops are quick to give way to very smooth caramel undertones and biscuit malts. Aroma is pleasent, floral and soft pine.

Leafs93 (2049) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Pours orange amber with a small white head, traces of it last throughout. Aroma is citrus and pine. Taste is sweet to bitter. Sticky mouthfeel. Overall this is a decent APA, nice balance of bitters and sweetness.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2004
Pours a golden amber with a decent head but gone quickly. I might be the minority, but I thought it had a flowery hop aroma. Sweet malt up front, smooth middle and a pretty good hop bite at the end. Pretty nice lacing. Shouls be a great summer beer.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 8, 2006
12oz bottle shared by ClarkVV on 6/7/06. Pours a crisp light orange color with a small white foamy head. Black specks of bubbles race towards the top and present a slight haze to the body of the beer. Nose is intriguing. At first I smelled some type of fart, but that was replaced by some light crisp malt notes and hints of fruit. Palate is crisp and fizzy with a very refreshing quality. Flavors of light citrus fruits, some hop notes, a crisp malt character, little bit of toastiness, and a clean finish.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2012
12oz bottle. pours a hazy yellow color with a thin white head, aroma is mixed with fruit and sweetness with hop notes, the taste is overall more fruit like than hops but is still very enjoyable.
