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.

Leafs93 (1897) - 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.

JMerritt (1894) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Honey colored with a medium sized white head. Light spicy hop aroma with some light grains. Lightly bitter flavor, slightly flowery, some light pine and citrus. Overall, nice but a midline pale.

arkurzynski (1820) - 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.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2006
Central Waters managed to make this rather pedestrian style quite palatable. Cloudy amber body under a thick, frothy off-white head. Aroma was of bread dough, citrus/pine hops, lots of malt, caramel. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Some sweetness to the taste, well-balanced, malt and hops. Very nice.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - NOV 9, 2004
Bottle thanks to a mysterious stranger! Lightish amber colored. Decent off-white head. Citrus aroma with little hints of malt. Light-medium bodied. Nice mixing of malt and hop with the hops slowly overcoming the malt in the finish. Really pleasant beer and would drink again.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 6, 2004
Slightly hazy amber body, short-lived white head. Bread and some bitter hops in the aroma, overall it's subdued. Subtle caramel and bready malt with a refreshingly bitter hop flavor. I was initially taken aback by the flavor, thinking the beer was bad or poorly produced. That's not the case, as the flavor's just different that most other hoppy beers I've had (just like the comm. description states). The hops have a nice piney, earthy, musty character. Dry, piney finish.

tcane7 (1670) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Drat at Baggataway, Pours amber with tan head and great lace. Notes of toffee, light roasted malt, some hop aromas and flavor - grass, pine, light citrus. Decent hop bitterness on the finish but not enough hop flavor for my taste.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2005
Clean hop dominated aroma, medium malt hop balance in the taste, nicely blended, high carbonation gives it a harsh mouthfeel, taste gets a little thin at the end. Still a high quality brew thatI wish would be distributed down by Milwaukee
