Universal as in its appeal. Nice example of a classic pale ale. Bready toasted malt backbone with light hop spice, some grassy notes, and an earthy character.

Light yellow with a finger white head. Smell is hoppy and citrusy. Taste is much the same. Very drinkable. Fremont makes some solid stuff.

Pour from a 12 oz can. Big white head over a clear amber pour. Lots of white lacing on the glass. Citrus and slight pine nose. Lots of citrus in the taste. Slight lingering bitterness. A bit floral on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours a light gold and copper color with a half-inch of sudsy head. The IPA-like aroma is predominately earthy, citrusy hops with sweet caramel malt in the background. The taste is light and clean with an emphasis on the cereal malt, sour grapefruit and pine characteristics. The body has strong carbonation and finishes dry and astringently bitter with a slight grainy aftertaste. Overall, a decent PNW Pale Ale for summer drinking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A drinkable pale ale alternative to SNPA. Bready malt with some citrus. Drinkable but far from my favorite in the APA category.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good toasted corn color with a solid quilt of light creamy foam leaving behind some ropes of lace. Herbal hops with a tea like character on the nose and some english crystal malts remind me of an old ale. There is also a small amount of detergent in the nose for me along some grass. Flavor is mostly dry tea leaves and some sweet malts alongside a bit of bitterness. I think with a bit of CaraPils, this one would actually make a really nice ESB, but it’s not doing it as an APA for me. Medium bodied with slightly slick feel. Overall drinkable, but think their Summer version should be the headliner.
