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.

Hammy78 (749) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle picked up at a Binny’s by a good friend. Pour is slightly cloudy amber, with a cloudy head that recedes to a thin layer with lots of legs on the side walls. Aroma is, well hops quite obviously, sweet malt too. Tastes hop bitter, but it also has an element of soapiness too. Good , but not my favorite of the style.

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.

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.

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.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 25, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2007 Second rating: 12 oz bottle. Poured a clear light orange color. Head was thick and white with good retention and lacing. Pleasant aroma dominated by flowery hops. Very effervescent. Too much carbonation. Dry on the tongue. Flavor was hop dominated and similar to the aroma.

Ughsmash (7158) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear medium golden with a short cap of white head. Aroma picked up some darker leafy notes along with cereal notes, a pinch of lemon zest, and some floral. The flavor had sweet cereal and caramel notes at the base supporting primarily pine and floral bitterness and some light fresh fruits.. rather tasty. Medium-bodied with nice balance between the sweets and the bitters.. little slick on the back-end. Tasty brew.
