From the bottle: amber with a thick but light white head. Straight forward moderate hop taste that is crisp with no lingering after taste. Malt is there but muted. Very drinkable.

Beautiful copper color with bubbly white head. Aroma is faint hops. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin, but expected. Taste is crisp mild hoppiness with a touch of malt on the follow through. Slight hoppy bitterness that lingers a bit on the aftertaste. Overall a very refreshing Pale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from a 12oz brown bottle into a nucleated pint glass, thanks Tom! It poured a clear golden amber colour, fluffy and long-lasting white foam with lace. Nice malt sweetness, slightly bready and biscuity, faint caramel notes, with even slighter fruity ale esters which formed a strong backbone for the Northern Brewer and Cascade hops. Predictably resiny and grapefruity, but very well-balanced. I was told this was a classic hops-forward Cascade American Pale Ale, and thatís exactly right. Good stuff, goes great with pizza.

12 ounce bottle. Copper colored with a small bubbly beige head. Pleasant toasted malt aroma with a fragrant citrus hop bouquet. Bittersweet caramel malt flavor is balanced nicely by the citrusy hops into mid taste. Finish is spicy hops with a long dryness. Very tasty.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear amber with medium head that fades and leaves spotty lacing. Aroma is floral hops, a little grassy, a little bready cookie dough, a touch of sour yeast. Taste is sour honey, into resiny hops with a dry finish thatís a little too astringent. Iím feeling under the weather, and this bottle was 2 weeks past best-by date... so this deserves a second chance sometime.
