I really like this beer. Pours a golden brown and has a pale white head. I’ve had this beer three times and each time it gets better. Deffinately worth trying.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted 9/22/08. 12oz bottle. Thanks Keir. Clear with a golden hue. Moldy off-white head. Mild nose with grapefruit citrus notes. Medium bodied with crisp malts, but the floral Cascade hop dominates. Crisp hop palate. Solid. Really nice and highly drinkable plae ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Semi hazy amber with a quickly dissipating white head that laces a little as it fades. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, yeast, cereal with some vegetal properties. Body is effervescent with citrus and caramel leading up to a medium bitter finish that has some sweetness to it. The hop character on the finish isn’t very well defined… Bargain bin pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Coppery brown color with a small but firm head. Herbal and citrus bitterness in the aroma along with a hint of grain and malt. Flavor is a light hit of tart citrus with a cereal malt finish. It’s a little lighter than most APA’s but still a very drinkable beer. Nice to see City Brewery branching out a bit.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Picked this up at a local shop because it was a bit different and very cheap. Pours an copper color with a decent head but nothing to rave about. The scent is citrus mixed with cheap beer/malt liquor. The taste matches the smell pretty well. The flavor of this beer is pretty much Old Style with grapefruit/lemon flavoring. Did not care for it too much.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle - Pours a nice honey color with medium head with nice lacing on glass as I drank. Very nice floral hop aroma. Taste is light malt with very little taste on palate with a light hop finish. A decent brew but not a whole lot going on in the taste area. Tastes similar to a homebrew kit.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not one of my favorite pale ales. Had a decent hop character but not much else. I agree with Haslinger. Drinkable but nothing special.

Pours clear with a minimal head. Nothing special. A typical pale ale. Drinkable but not notable.
