Pint on tap - clear, light amber color, small-ish head with good lacing. Taste is resinous without being too hoppy, too dry of a mouthfeel at the end, although the beginning is just fine. Not rough, but not the greatest either -- drinkable, kind of enjoyable, lacks potential warmth, malt goodness. Tastes simpler than the somewhat malts I know they used.

A good beer. More flavor than most pale ales. Darker in color than you’d expect but a very good beer.

Somewhat on the browner side for an APA. Bright and fruity aromas and flavors that remind me of the more English side of the spectrum. A little too much booze on the mouthful.

On tap at Screw & Brew. Hazy orange pour with a sticky white head. Citrus and pine on the nose. Nice hop presence. Flavor is citrusy and bitter. Clean and refreshing. Could session this one all day.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty nice. Not alot of hops, but tasty and sessionable. Thin foam head on top that turns into nice legs after some sipping. Good hop aroma, spicy bread and floral hits the nose and tongue. Aftertaste doesnt linger too long and its all pretty well balanced. Good PA for noobs or those who say they dont like hoppy beers.

A very nice, easy to drink Pale Ale. It’s really good, simple beer from start to finish. Nothing fancy, nothing special, no real flare, but it doesn’t always need to be complicated to be enjoyable. When you’re just looking for a refreshing beer on a warm day, Manny’s is the beer for you!

On tap at Cloud 9 Brewery. Amber pour with little to no aroma. Bitter pilsner like flavor through, very grassy. Bitter finish. Nothing to get excited about here.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a hazy orange brown body, no head, no lacing, no transparency.
The smell had a strong grassiness up front, lightly hopped.
The taste was mainly bitter as the hops take over, grassy bitter aftertaste, sticky finish.
On the palate, it sat about at a light to medium, fairly sessionable, carbonation is spot on for the style and for me.
Overall, good APA I’d have it again.
