The best I can go on this is not too bad... It's like entry level pale ale here..nothing is bright about it as is described. Dull hop front with slight hop aroma and taste...the maltiness comes through more than all else ... It's fine just doesn't hold up when you have sooo many other rock star pales and iPas in Chicago ( half acres daisy cutter...Piece the weight...etc etc etc....) I'll pass next time unless I'm in a pinch...

I thought this was adequate, like a light pale. Very lightly hopped, almost like a cream ale.

Bottle@Lou Malnati’s, Chicago. Deep golden color, white head. Hoppy aroma. Aromatic fruit flavor. Medium body, medium carbonation. Not bad.

Pretty decent, but average pale ale. Sampled this on draft at the original Uno’s in Chicago. Light copper color, good amount of hops in the nose along with bready and malty notes. The beer laced fairly nice around the inside of the glass. The body and flavors were well-balanced and delicious, with a nice amount of dry and flowery hops. I also tasted a balanced amount of bready malt in the flavors.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Chicago O’Hare Airport. Pours almost clear amber with a thick, fizzy off white head. Tastes like crisp cracker malt, straw, grass, light musky dry citrus hops, some lemon, and a light sweetness. Light body and blow carbonation. Smells like biscuit malt, light corn, light citrus, and a bit musky.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Several 16oz pints at Frank’s Bar Chicago. Pours a clear orange with a ring of white head. Nose wasn’t so great, some cheap malt, some orange, a little cotton candy. Flavor is very weak, honey, cheap malt, orange, some biscuit, a little artificial sweetness. Slightly cloying finish.

Almost forgot to rake this one, had on tap in the Hilton on Michigan ave. pours light amber, off white head, mostly translucent. Toasted malt, light citrus and pine undulate, mild bitterness makes this a balanced beast. Light to medium body with ample carbonation to keep it chugging along.

ORD airport. Moderate corn Pils aroma, noble hops? In a pale? WTF? Really wonder if somebody mounted the wrong keg.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale, yes. Ale, barely. Pours out with nice creamy head, but dances closely to lager territory . Faint malt aroma, more bread, malt in the taste . Short finish, not much hops to speak of.
