Draft - Great Lakes. I thought this was a great Pale Ale. Amber color. Nutty, malty and hoppy flavor. Hints of sweetness. Great dry finish.

Clear, amber, white moderate sized head. Almost balanced hop aroma that is leaning towards citrus (lemon) with notes of fruit and nut. Semi-dry flavor with a bunch of ice-tea notes. Light nutty aftertaste. Very good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light copper color. Smallish head thins out to a thin layer of bubbles. Cereal bitter nose. Nicely hopped. Nice long finish with orange-style citric flavors. Good full mouthfeel. Nice subtle malt in the middle to give it added complexity.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smooth, yet hoppy bitterness. Not a serious malt flavor but a good balance with the sweetness from the hops. NIce amber coloring, and a slim amount white head. My only complaints lie in the fact that it has a rather watery feel, and not much of an aroma

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 definately a top notch pale ale-some different hop flavors for a pale ale-more german hops, maybe saaz? pours clear orange with a sudsy wispy white head. aroma is piney with notes of grapefruit and grainy malt husks. Flavors are dominated by the citric and piney hops (cascades) pretty fresh and pungent. some nice malt husk notes accent the finish. finish is long, dry, piney with some citric sweetness.

I'm very impressed with this beer! Orangish amber. Mild malt sweetness. Hoppy and bitter but mild and tame and great!!! Brilliant.

Dark in colour to a normal APA, quick fading head. Malty taste but definately hoppy. A good overall APA!

Beautiful looking beer but too piney, with big maltiness. (I was expecting something more from every one else's raves). But in the end the Nosferatu prevailed.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice copper color with a bit of an off white head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Pleasant burst of hops up front with lingering hops and malt in back. Would love to have it on draught but unfortunately am stuck in an area where about the only draught beers available are Labatts and Bud. There oughta be a law...jt

Decent Pale ale. Not terribly good in any way. Okay, color. Decent flavor with a malty kick. Good aftertaste.
