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.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Nice clear amber body with a soapy white head. Light but fresh flower/grapefruit hop aroma with a bit of resin. Flavor is good, but not that heavy. Its a bit piney with some orange and bread thrown in. The hops are there, just not special. Overall, its good, but again, not special.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Orange-copper. Nose somewhat citric, a few malts. Reasonably well balanced, some citrus backed up by a reasonable amount of toastiness. Reasonably decent.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 12oz bottle acquired in trade with The_Enemy (thanks!). Poured a medium amber with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of toffee, citrus, flowers and a little fruity. Tastes of caramel, citrus, toasted malts, and some fruits. Some lacing left on the glass.

BVery (6633) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Mostly clear light gold pour with a white head. Aroma is caramel and bread, but mild. Balanced hops on taste. Very sessionable.

arkurzynski (1544) - 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.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2012
Originally reviewed: 12/27/09. Poured into a mug. Pours a clear dark orange with a thin off-white head on top. Retention was lacking. Left very little lace. Scents of earthy hops, light orange, and biscuits. Full crisp body. Flavor was a little harsh and overly spicy. Bitterness was lingering and charring. This wasn’t the best representation of the style. It was decent, just not my thing.

dinkle50 (999) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Pale golden color. Great lacing. No head. Dank hops in the aroma. Taste is very hoppy. No citrus but lots of grass and pine. Very easy drink. I liked this one and could make it an all day session-er.

DocLock (7920) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle from Blue Dog. Pours turbid orangy with dark straw bottom edge and frothy, well-retained off-white head. Nose is earthy hops, citrus, mild florals. Tastes hoppy, citric, somewhat earthy and caramelly. Finishes bitter.

MaltOne (222) - 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.

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.
