COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale Ale is brewed to be a crossroads beer between two styles of beer, the Amber Ale and the India Pale Ale (IPA). While not having the malt character of Amber Ale or the high hop profile of an IPA, Pale Ale has a balanced body and character that creates a refreshing, clean, flavorful beer.

HQT night: Growler. This beer poured a cloudy amber color. Looked almost like an unfiltered beer. The dry hop aroma was awesome, and the taste and enjoyment of this beer did not disappoint. Maybe a slight mushroom and grass hint. Very good stuff.

a solid pale that would have stood out had it not been for the awesomeness of the 18 ibu pacific ale we tried right before this one.

BuckeyeBoy (2865) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 11, 2014
On tap at Bend pub. Pours out a crisp golden topped with a white head. Nose is sweet malts a nice hop kick. Taste is as the nose with a good hop mix and bread malts.

It really lives up to the description. The hop qualities of an IPA are there, but very subtle. It tastes crisp and light like an Amber as well.

Salmoniform (992) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Poured from can to glass. Honey hue with creamy white head that lingered nicely. Aroma is mandarin orange, straw, honey, floral, grapefruit, grass. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a nice hop bitterness dominating the following & finish. Overall this is a nice hoppy pale ale.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bronze body topped by a firm, silken head. Nice green bitter aroma. Similarly, the body is characterized by a fresh, green hoppiness as well as a light graininess.

BrewGoblin (463) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Not nearly my favourite Goodlife toot, but not totally shabby. Darker amber with tiny hat. Hay and corn are going on, some brown sugar and caramel malts. Light hoppery and a somewhat watery texture. Pass, but glad I tried it.

arminjewell (6417) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought oxidation, cardboard, corn, slight hay, cereal, some fruit, hints of biscuit, bread. Taste is a mix of orange, grapefruit, caramel, toffee, hints of oxidation, corn, finishing with some metallic notes. Yikes, hope to try this fresher.

Hazy bright golden orange appearance with a thin tan head. Creamed corn, bready, herbal, oxidized aroma. Twangy sweet flavor. Corn, celery flavor. High sweetness and bitterness. Not very good.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear light amber color with a smallish white head. Nose is rather hoppy, with some citrus and floral notes coming off this one. Taste actually isn’t all that bitter, but is fairly refreshing. Not a bad beer...
