3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gold, yellow, clear. Sweet orange aroma. Friendly, unimposing look. Head quickly gives out. No lacing for you laceheads. Flavors of orange, grapefruit, anything citrus but lemon. Can a pale have ’smooth’ finish? This one can. A good beer, but better off with this brewhaus’ IPA. Eat a Peach.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2005 I like this brew. It poured a pale apricot color with a respectable white head. The aroma has a mild sweet malt base on top of which is a nice blending of hop scents, sour orange, rose, a touch of pine. Great taste. It’s like biting into a section of a juicy, tart orange. Mild malt and with a nice balance of hops, this has a fresh, mildly bitter finish. I will be having more of these.

Hazy golden in color with a firm white head. Hoppy aroma with a hint of sweet malts. Grapefruity hops in the taste along with malty sweetness. Nice mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
looks and smells more like a typical pilsner than a pale ale--very mild aroma, you have to dig deep in the nose to get a whiff of some cascades. not overly hoppy like some APAs tend to get. flavor is startlingly balanced, considering the lager-esque aroma. very neutral/mild malt body with an excellent subtle hop accent, with a medium dry finish. an excellent beer to drink every day, but it won’t blow anyone away. quite subdued for a pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Kind of a nice fruity, leafy hop aroma, not too intense. Huge off-white head, difficult to pour, very carbonated. Hazy orange-amber color. Light hoppy flavor with caramel malts in the background, medium bitterness. Again, nothing too intense. Medium body, easy drinking. As it says in the commercial description, good lawn mower beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This APA pours an effervescent dark golden color with a medium thick and foamy white head. Thin lacing. The aroma is floral hops with a touch of citrus. Medium-bodied with a creamy texture at times. Hops, caramel and malt flavors. The finish is citrus hops with a piney character. All in all very easy to drink, straightforward and enjoyable.

Amber with a small, white, bubbly and frothy head. Nice aroma: Sweet, malty, caramel, citrus, and hops. Flavor not quite as impressive, with less malts, but a solid, earthy, hoppy bite in the finish. Clean and light. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Citrusy hoppy aroma with a little skunk. Pours an orangish-yellow with a nice white head with fair retention. Real strong citrus with an almost peachy flavor with some grapefruit hops in the finish. Light hoppy aftertaste. Skunkiness hurts the aroma score, but overall a nice APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A deep golden ale with a thin, white head. The aroma is very citrusy with grapefruit pith. Body is moderate but creates an excellent foundation of creamy, pale caramel malt supporting a palate-cleansing bitterness and solid, American hop flavor. You could drink alot of this one without filling up.
