3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the FR Brewpub in the Fox River Mall. First beer Iíve ever experienced in a mall, come to think of it. Slightly cloudy amber brew with a sizable head. Great lacing. Nice hop presence in the nose. Taste is mostly floral Cascade hops; could almost pass for an IPA. Not a lot of depth behind the hops but overall, an utterly drinkable beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Oshkosh location. Pours a clear gold with a slight orange hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. A bit of light citrus on the nose backed by some light grains. Flavor begins with a hint of grapefruit and light citrus that mellows into a grain finish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the Oshkosh brewpub, pours a clear orange with a good head. Aroma of earth earthy malts and hops. Taste is bitter, earthy hops, more reminiscent of a stout somehow than a pale ale. Not a favorite of mine.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled from brother Tom. Clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of mild citrus and resinous hops, caramel and mild grapefruit. Taste is mildly hoppy with light grapefruit and citrus mixed in with the malt. A bit of sourness comes through at first, but faded after a few sips. Went down pretty easy, only mildly bitter on the finish, but nothing spectacular.

pale straw color, pale straw flavor. at least it seems to be free of overt sweet adjuuncts, thuogh the hops are truly at trace levels, like the brewmaster ran out of supplies. it is far more acceptable to serve an average pale ale then to do so under the pretense that it is well hopped.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour is medium golden with very weak white head. Aroma is of hop resin. Flavor is somewhat decent but is masked by the big sourness bite that hits you full on. Must be the hop resins. Other than that, not much going on here. This is a lower quality American Pale. Would not buy again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber color with a modest off-white head. Some malt, dough and hint of resin hops in the aromas. Mild pale malt flavors with a bit of honey and zest. A really light and boring pale ale in my book.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at both brewpub/brewery locations (Appleton and Oshkosh).
Rating base on Appleton version - Pours a clear light copper amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that has some good lacing and leaves behind a film top and ring. Aroma of light caramel malt, plenty of citrus and grapefruit zest, and a touch of honey. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with more grapefruit/citrus zest flavor than caramel malt. Finish is slightly dry, with a piney/grapefruit bitterness that lingers around after the finish. The Oshkosh version has a powdery biscuit malt flavor during the taste and in the finish

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Fox River Brewing Co. pub. Poured a rich copper color with nice white head, great lacing as I drank the beer. Tasted hops through out and thought the beer tasted similar to Victoryís Hop Devil. I would order this beer again, I give Fox River Brewing credit for creating a quality pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap in Oshkosh. A nice orange beer with a fair white head with a doily of lacework after it subsided to a film. Nice citrus aroma, enough malt to finish. Very similar to Sierra Nevada, like it was probably shooting for. I liked this as much as the Scotch Ale.
