This is better than I was expecting. I heard it compared to Anchor Liberty Ale, but this is not as bitterly hoppy. good malt balance.

A very good pale ale, one of the best out there. It’s that sweet lake michigan water that made milwaukee famous, except it’s chicago.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good malt and hops cobination leaves this sweet, spicy and toasted. Well balanced for an American pale, in which the style tends to be over-hopped. Light citrus and yeast taste. Not exceptional, but a good brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber color with long lasting medium white head. Spicy on the nose, can’t place the spice at this time. Nice blend of hops and malt flavors.

On tap at Curraghs: Amber in color, minimal head. Had nice flavor but was lacking hops. Definetly better ales out there, but overall it was an okay beer

There was just nothing to this beer. The smell was very light, almost nonexistent. The flavor was very bland and lasted only a short second. Absolutely no aftertaste. I was extremely disapointed by this brew.

Bottle. Light to medium brown in color with a small whitish head. Aroma is very hoppy. Flavor is very hoppy with a little malt. A little better than your typical pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Galileo Cafe, O’Hare Airport, Chicago. Hops and spiciness apparent. Definite notes of black pepper. Akin to Sam Adams in flavour but not mouthfeel. Short, easy finish - great alternative to all the macro crap available at the airport if you’re passing through.

Poured a nice tan color with a light tan head. Overpowering nose of hops. Almost a spicy hop taste that has a slightly bitter finish. Light carbonation. Very good beer.
