Draft at the brewpub. Standard visuals for an EPA, perhaps a bit darker than some. This is tasty, but drinks with a fruity, almost berry aspect that I’d expect more in a beer labeled an American amber than an "English" pale. Sturdy flagship. (#5689, 8/30/2014)

I liked that this wasn’t overly bitter as some APAs are. This had a nice aroma and flavour.

Sweet money, some hops. I found this to be a very sessionable and drinkable beer. Not crazy amounts of flavour but quaffable.

This was our first stop while on our Minneapolis trip. The St Paul brewery is downtown near the St Paul Hotel. This APA was one of the best tasted for the trip. The clear amber color and frothy head were impressive. The bitter floral flavors of the hops were well balanced with the malts. The finish was smooth with some bitterness. The APA had an IBU of 50 and 14 Plato and served at 38 degrees. We also had Bac-n-Beer nuts that was spicy.

On tap @ Great Waters. Burnt orange appearance with a light off white head. Good caramel malty, somewhat hoppy nose. Caramel, slightly nutty malty flavor with light hops. Almost more like a light brown ale.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Tap. Clear orange pour with a clingy soapy white head. The definition of a standard pub ale - nothing interesting, nothing offensive. Light biscuit and mild hop.
Cask version is even better. Soapy head and the earthy caramel elements really pop.

Backlog: On draught during the Winterfest 2009 in St. Paul, Minnesota. Pours a semi-clear golden copper colored brew with a thin off-whtie head that has some nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of some fruity malt, floral hops, a touch of crystal malt and some citrus zest. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of caramel and crystal malt, some floral hops a touch of fruit and some light spice. Finish has a mild bitterness that slowly disappears. A solid English Pale Ale overall.
