Growler from Uptown!!! Pours a darker pale color with a solid white head. Smell is hoppy and amazing. The taste is well balanced. I tried Lucille and didnít like it as much as this one! They donít bottle so you better find a tap somewhere!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at some pub after watching the Seahawks crush the Cowboys. I think the pub was called The Owl or something? I donít recall because we pretty much ditched it right away and hiked up to Pike. Anyway, this was a hazy light amber number with an average white head. Aroma was a bit stinky/sweaty (but Iím betting it was the taplines in this place) with sweet fruity notes. Sweet caramel and vaguely defined fruity hops with medium bitterness. Just okay.

Tap at Sirenís, Port Townsend. Amber golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma is softly fruity and a little bit earthy. An unusual sort of tart red berry flavour. Definitely in the UK-ish style. A bit of light blackberry flavour and a little bit of soft bitterness. Okay - but not awesome.

Much cloudier pour than I expected with a thin white head. Modest lacing. Full floral hop aroma. Medium bodied, more forest, almost but not not quite an IPA. Lekker hop finish

I am the type of person that does not get excited about pale ales but mannyís is absolutely the exception.

All around decent pale ale. Orange body with a slight white head. Muted floral aromatics with a hint of citrus. Light to medium bodied with similar flavors to the nose. High carbonation, abrupt finish.

Apparently Iím supposed to fill this out. Take the numbers that I put down with a grain of salt if you will, but Iím just your average NW beer junkie looking to sample as many different brews as possible.

Solid offering, on tap at a bar downtown Seattle. Nice, orangey-gold color, florally and earthy, finishes nice. Drank several pints of this and would do it again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. Apparently this is the most popular of the Georgetown offerings. (note of trivia - Georgetown brewery is the second largest tap-only brewery in the U.S.) From the ratings, it appears that the recipe varies here and there. The version that I tried was nicely put-together, but very straightforward and not a lot of hops. It had a nice body to it, and drank very easily. Iím just disappointed with the lack of complexity to the aromas/flavors.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Seattle, Wa - on tap at Safeco Fieldhouse - Mariners-Twins Game. Medium copper pour, white head, thick lacing. Neutral aroma with a hint of fresh lake water. Flavor is slightly bland with some green tea notes, a light touch of mint, some ripening vegetable notes. Thick enough mouthfeel. Rolled the dice and missed somewhat on this one.
