COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A testament to Cascade hops in a bottle. This medium-bodied pale ale has a distinctive floral hop aroma and refreshing citrus flavor. You’ll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere.

heemer77 (5102) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 28, 2005
Light gold and orange color with a large white head. Aroma is a massive pine and orange peel for an APA. Crisp and refreshing aroma with a hint of the malt. The taste is much lighter with hops than I would have expected. Hints of oranges and some hearty bread. Also some pine in the finish. A nice APA that would be worth revisitiing.

MIBRomeo (2559) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 28, 2005
a cloudy golden color w/ a thing white head and nice hints of carbonation bubbles. scent carried hopps, citrus, and a touch of sweet malts. the palate was fiarly light a touch malty nothing special here. Flavor was of light malt, with a fairly easy flavor and a nice hoppy undertone with some other hints of citrus maybe orange but a bit more bitter. overall a great light hopped beer. thanks to blake for this one

piwodevo (53) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2005
this beer plays like a small beer: dry and bitter. light color, thin head, bright and sunny, filtered, handful of medium sized bubbles. malt is barely discernable, bitterness is too high relative to the malt , flavor hops are subdued, aroma hops are supercharged and seem to exacerbate the dryness. i think they may have tried too hard. as an aside, it’s too bad that here in chicago, only 150 miles from Grand Rapids, this beer is $9.49 a 6 pack. i mean, it’s good, but not Dogfish good. it’s maybe goose island good. the price should be $7.99 tops.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Pours a hazy golden color with scents of earthy hops. Hop aroma and flavor was reminiscent of a pilsner rather than a pale ale. Being dry hopped, I expected more aroma than what was being given off. This was evenly balanced beer and easy to drink, especially at 6.2%.

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.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2005
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.

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.
