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. Youíll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere.

drowland (6169) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2010
4/28/10. 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The pour is golden orange with a hugr fluffy white head and lots of floaties. The aroma is deep earthy hops that border on catty, and the flavor is similar. Iím thinking this is a bit of an old bottle, but canít find a date because itís from a singles rack. Bah.

(cheap) growler fill from Whole Foods- Bowery. This, for me, was the perfect food pairing beer. Sweet caramel, well carbonated, light and sessionable. Slight citrus hops to provide a balance, but not overwhelming. Really helped wash down several different types of food.

yinzerbeernut (180) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2010
Pale gold color with a white pillow head and noticeable lacing. A very aromatic flower bouquet on nose with a touch of lightly toasted hop. This is a crisp medium bodied pale ale that has a nice balance and enough sweetness to keep the dry, bitterness in check. A very smooth drinking ale.

Copper colored with a 1 inch white head. Malty nose.All malt taste. I thought pale ales were supposed to hoppy. Well, this one is not so much. Super nutty, sweet, and malty. Go crazy you belgian freaks!

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2010
12oz bottle from Castleton Wine & Spirits, Indianapolis. Pours a hazy orange. Nice citrus hop aroma. Good malt body, with a nicely balanced hop finish. Good beer.

Guerde (1184) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2010
(bottle) Poured into a pint, this beer appears hazy with a light gold/orange hue and a medium white head which recedes to a thin cap and adequate lacing. Aroma is full of cracked black pepper, baked bread (pretzel), ground mustard, and some earthiness as well. Hints of skunk appear, so Iím not sure how old this bottle is. Also a floral presence. Taste is salty initially, lightly bitter and piney, with some dry bread and lingering bitterness on the finish. Could be some orange zest and pith as well. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is restrained. A decent pale ale, but it pales (pun intended) in comparison to others that Iíve sampled within this style. Perhaps a fresher bottle would change my opinion.

Leighton (11899) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2010
Tap sample at New Beer Dist. Pretty nice Pale Ale. Pours a light amber with a medium, pure white head. Nose is somewhat hoppy, with definite floral notes. Flavor is quite earthy, holds some nice bitterness, and is balanced out a bit with some malty sweetness. Finish leaves a tad of bitter bite. Very drinkable.

Finhead (1223) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2010
A hazy yellow pour with rocky white head. A nice hoppy nose with mild pine aroma. The light to medium body has average carbonation and a slightly thin texture. It begins with medium bitterness, but finishes fairly clean.

Pint at Rattle n Hum. 4th Founders beer of the night. Crisp and ripe pale ale. Nice and subtle hop aroma with a firm bite. Citrus and floral.. some soft cereals to balance it out. Finished this very quickly.
