Dark orange body with a generous, lacing, lingering, off-white head. Aroma of apples and tannic malt husks. Tasks exactly like a pale ale I brewed. Their must be some crystal hops in there which lends a piney, tinny, tannic bitterness which is balanced well with a sweet candy bread maltiness and a appley esters from the yeast. Over all pretty ordinary pale.

Pretty golden pour w/ a white foamy head & solid lacing. The aroma has some light citrus & piney notes. The taste is slightly bitter & a tad watery. Not a big flavor burst but it is drinkable & overall an average beer.

A zippy little pale, very peppery. It’s a touch thin. I find it a bit one dimensional in both Hoo and malt character

Wombata (565) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 8, 2015
Can bought at the Yakima Beer Shoppe. Aroma: Fragrant. Floral, mikan, ruby grapefruit, passion fruit. Palate: Quite smooth, medium bodied; filling but without heaviness. Flavor: Ruby grapefruit, some passion fruit, apricot, grassy hop on the finish. Comment: Wow! I haven’t had this for years, but I now I really appreciate how well-made it is. Reasonably priced to boot. This calls for a road trip to the brewery.

[3/3/15] Draught at Hales Ales Brewery & Pub in Seattle. Clear golden. Aroma of citric and floral hops and mild maltiness. Flavor has mild sweetish malt and nice bitter citric hops. Medium-bodied. Nice.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy orange color with a light carbonation to be seen rising to fill a rapidly dieing one finger white foamy head. Light lacing started to cling and then slid. The smell had a decent sweet caramel maltiness running along into a light citrus blend. The taste was a combined sweet caramel and citrus aspect to it. A light citrus aftertaste leads to a semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. It was nicely carbonated. Overall, I say this was a pretty good APA that I could have again.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 05.09.14. A: Orange/red. No head or lacing. Chunks were floating in it. S: Biscuit, citrus. T: Burnt flavor, citrus, metal. M: Flat. O: I thought that this was a bad bottle because of the sediment, but it is bottle fermented according to the label. This is the second go around with this beer. The first one that I had was the same with chunks and all so maybe they have QC problems. Like the first time, this was also a drain pour.

12oz bottle in Seattle. Solid nw-style pale, mild hops by today’s standard. But sweet and tasty

12oz bottle, not the ultra patriotic can. Medium head fades to a moderate lacing. Orange colored beer. Clear and filtered throughout. Its got too much caramel and too much American bitter hops, not my fav. Lots of dusty British malt as well. These are the exact Pale Ales I don’t like.

Bottle (12oz $1.30) Hazy golden brown with two finger head that fades. Smell citrus. Tastes bready with the hops kicking in little in the end with a slight metal taste,
