not bad but almost too malty for my idea of a pale ale---up front malt is nice and hops are present--- definitely a tasty bitter finish---just not what I expected but I’ll drink again

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2014 Bottle: Far too volatile on the pour, one inch of beer and five inches of head... Even with a slow pour! The foam lasts forever, too, & while it leaves good lacing, it takes 15 minutes before I can drink the damn thing. The liquid has a deep amber, cloudy copper body, darker than expected. Aroma of heavy hops; pine, zesty, floral, and lightly soapy. Faint juicy oranges and bready malt backbone. Taste is quite spicy, lots of white pepper, earthy, dirty, herbal hoppage. Brash bitterness and a heavy toasted and caramel malt sweetness that helps balance. Bitter finish, thicker than expected body with lively carbonation. Not as "drinkable" as I’d like a pale ale to be. Not awful but more of a "miss" than a "hit", that’s for sure.

Didn’t know what to expect since the bottle says ale. Pours murky brown with a foamy off white head. Smells like candied sugar a very floral. Taste is sweet, caramel, in thd beginning but then hops that taste like you ate a dandelion. Good mouth feel though. Big malt bill. Overall not to good.

Hophaze (188) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a copperish color with medium head and lacing. Aroma of lemon and citrus and the hops linger after 1st drink (could be a turn off for some, but I like). Good beer ----Hophaze out

12oz bottle 6/8/13 (Binny’s Downers Grove Mix a Six)-40° in Shake-Pours a hazy amberish brown with a tight off white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of hops, citrus, and malt. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. Nice brew.

Tastes a little too pils-ish for me, and seriously lacking in hops. Not terrible, but wouldn’t buy it again.

There are about 7 versions of this beer on here. The bottle doesnt specify. So im going with the one with the most ratings. It also doesnt say what kind of beer it was. Just ale. Well that does me no good. Very floral, bitter. Didnt get much hops. I guessed ESB. Well we have it as american pale. Well by that standard it doesnt impress.

Bottle didnt tell me which variety. Big problem on the brewery’s part. So I’m guessing a bit. Pours beautiful color. Smells of flower, springlike. Tastes floral, but not bitter. Well balanced. Great summer beer.

BeerandBlues2 (11059) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle received via trade with FlandersNed. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, creamy off-white head, medium retention with spotty lacing. Aroma is earthy, herbal, and light resin hops with apricot and peach fruity esters and biscuit malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with light fruity esters, supporting dry malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottle sampled in a large tulip, this ale had a clear dark copper-red pour and made about a two finger faint off-white head that recedes to a cover and sticky ring, there was a small slow trickling center stream with a few bubbles elsewhere in the glass, it left nice rings and spots of lacing on the glass, the bottom of the bottle had a thin film of dark sediment, this ale had aromas of toasted malt, caramel, light citrus and orange hops, earthy, light bruised apple fruit, and a little malt sweetness, it had flavors of toasted malt, caramel, citrus and flower like hops, and light fruit, this ale was sweeter on the mouth than on the nose, but the finish had a nice hop bitterness that dried the palate some, the hop bitterness lingered a bit, nice balance of malt and hops, the mouth feel was light with average to lively carbonation, and it had a bit of creaminess, a nice drink, this is the second Greenbush ale sampled and I have enjoyed both.
