On tap at The Publick House in Brookline, hazy amber-orangeish hue, with a shy white head, note of floral hops fruitiness, coriander spiciness, caramelized malt, hint of orange peels in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeast fruitiness, sweet orange peels, note of coriander, caramal malt, leading towards a hops bittering finish.

Very little aroma to this. Mild fruit character and bready malts. Carbonation was overdone in the taste. There was a bit of a fruitiness with currant on top of it. Not bad.

25 oz bottle. Ahh, how many pours does it take to reach the end of a bottle of Cisco’s beer? Much like a Tootsie Pop, I think I’m destined to never know. After the 6th or so pour the last few ounces are so murky and unappealing it usually goes down the drain. Oh well, on to the beer. Pours a light copper body under an enormous white head. An army of tiny bubbles rush to the surface continually. Each successive pour makes the glass more cloudy. Aroma is of a light soft malt base with some floral hops. Flavor is very light with the first beginnings of an infection brewing. Just a little too much of an acetic/lemony flavor to be intentional. Otherwise, light to moderate bitterness over a light malt base. Light bodied with moderate fine carbonation. Surprising because of the infection, but the carbonation level is actually quite acceptable. Overall, probably a middle of the road Pale Ale at best even when in top shape. This is not my first run-in with a Cisco beer that had a touch of infection, very disappointing given the $7.00 price tag.

On tap in a shaker. Very little aroma. Bland appearance and flavor. Flat palate. Light bitter finish.

Bottle: Ho-hum. I was hoping this was going to be some interesting new micro-find and was pretty disappointed. Caramel color with sediment floaties. Mildly hoppy flavors overpowered by bitterness and a very flat finish. Boring.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Surprisingly bright and fruity, cloudy ornage ale. Medium chewy body with biscuit/apple tones and the slightest hint of citrus in the finish. Surprisngly tasty but as usual with Cisco, overcarbonated.

I had a four pack of this one hot summer’s afternoon in new haven, while doing research with monkeys. It tasted like soap and smelled like piss.

decent for pale ale, but didn’t have a whole lot of taste. Whatever you are eating at the time will definitely overpower this beer. Light orangey yellow color, not much head. Aftertaste is pleasant, very very mildly hoppy. You really have to concentrate to taste this beer.

Pours a transparent copper amber with a thin, wispy off-white head. Dry toasty pale malty aroma has some earthy hop presence. Full, malty and bittersweet body has some mild light fruitiness toward a dry, mildly hoppy finish. A decent pale ale, but somewhat bland.
