Coeur d’Alene Brewing Company’s Centennial Pale Ale was first brewed in commemoration of Idaho’s 100th birthday. In its first full year of production, it won a Gold Medal as the Best Pale Ale at the prestigious Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado. Centennial is a clean and thirst-quenching pale ale brewed with Northwest malts and hops. The first hopping provides just the right amount of bittering and balance, while the final hopping completes the aroma and preserves the essential hop oils vital to this style of beer. Centennial’s straw color and crisp finish made this a Gold Medal winner.

"first impression of aroma and taste was "macro" pale ale. As it breathed it got better, although still nothing too complex or outstanding. Thoroughly average weakish hop presence. The nice, smooth malt profile is the saving grace. "

355ml bottle poured a pale golden color with small white head and a few spots of lacing. Aroma is grains and a little hops. Taste is light malty sweetness and a lingering hop finish. Thin body and modest carbonation. Definitely not one of the better pale ales out there.

On tap at the brewpub in Coeur d’Alene in August 2009. Couldn’t put this review in with the rest of my backlog earlier, as this place was listed as closed for a period of time. Pours a light yellow-golden color with a short single-finger white head without any retention and really no lacing either. The nose is pretty bad with just a tiny amount of pale malt and not really any hop presence. The taste follows suit and is just uber-bland. Feel is really light and astringent. No reason to take more than an ounce or two of this. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-30-2010

Bottle. Toffee malt and grass aroma. Clear golden yellow color with minimal head. Light toffee malt and mildly bitter dry hay flavor. Weak body and watery finish. Not much there.

Bottle from Brewforia. I guess this brewery is gone out of business? Anyway, unknown vintage. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. A earthy malt and orange nose. The flavor is basically a light fruity hop, dry pale malts. Simple and thin in terms of flavor.

Draught at the brewpub (Spokane, WA location). Clear deep golden, no head. Mild grapefruit aroma. Mid sweet with clean mouthfeel. Some caramel and slight grapefruit. Mediu bitterness. Fairly shy and a bit sketchy.

Bottle. Pours an attractive shade of deep straw gold, cloudy. Pleasant aroma of grassy hops with some wet straw, some pine, maybe a little too pine-soly. Creamy in the mouth, palate coating, bitter, salty throughout the mid- & back-end, salty finish lasts and is rather unpleasant, strange.

5 oz sample at brewpub. Clear golden pour with a foamy white head. Aroma of mild vegetal hops and cheese, along with buttery popcorn. Taste is nutty, not much citrus or pine at all. Very bad. Medium light body, soft carbonation. Maybe this was a bad batch since this beer apparently won gold medal so I’ve heard. But there seem to be overall low ratings for this so maybe they should change the recipe or something.

Bottle:   Fiery golden, clear, lively carbonation, moderate sized frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Odd barnish nose, a little like really old cat urine on a potatoe sack.   Mild hop bite on the tongue, a little spritzy.   Better than the nose suggested.   Does have a stale malt background, similar to a potatoe sack.   Backside is a little astringent.   Not heavy, but enough to make this Pale seem a little medicial.   Finishes somewhat flat, a little stale, with minor astringency.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering staleness.   Not bad, but certainly not great either.
