Pours Orange and caramel. Taste is floral and lots of citrus. Light bitterness. Nice long finish. A very very tasty beer on a summer day. Would by again.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours orange with white head. Doesn’t smell like much- slightly caramelly. Tastes citrusy, smooth, easy-drinking, good malt backbone. Okay, nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
New Beer Distributors, NY 355ml ($2.50): Pours a sort of hazy orange color with a off-white head. Light fruitiness, coupled with maltiness. Taste is somewhere around medium hoppiness and some of that lingers onto the aftertaste. Not exactly perfectly balanced. A pretty meh beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from 6 fl oz bottle. Clear, orangish-yellow. Citrusy hop aroma. Nice full hop taste, but without a bitter kick at the end. Finish is just above-average.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cool label on a 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a sticky white head. Hops and malt balance in the aroma and the flavor. Good citrus, a bit earthy, a bit grainy. A nice, easy-drinking, solid pale ale.

I'm not usually a pale ale guy, but this one is superb. Perfectly balanced. Incredibly flavorful malt base, with just the right amount of hops to keep things interesting. Super drinkable. This is a beer I could see being a go to beer for me, if it were readily available where I live. Just nice!! And the name -- irony incarnate!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber color, slightly hazy with a white head. Malt forward with a nice hop presence, very drinkable. My only complaint is it finishes a little too sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A deep amber pale ale. Mild fruit and biscuit malts on the nose. A lightly tropical and melon flavour in the mouth and a robust bitterness to cap it all off. Slick and easy drinking.

The Loser by Elysian has been around as longer than most craft beers. It has a great aroma that stays with the beer. Balanced flavor and alcohol. It is the best Pale that Seattle has to offer!
