Possessing a delicate balance of malt and hop flavors and embellished by the distinctive fruitiness of our special ale yeast, Hale’s Pale Ale is flavorful and easy to drink.

Bier brauen (246) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Very drinkable. Malt sweetness with hop aroma and hops in the taste. Definitely more hops than an english pale ale.

pours between a golden and amber color, fruity hop aroma with a little sweet maltyness. Strange combo of spice and sweet malt and bitter hop finish.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear, amber color with a medium white head. Good lacing. Pleasant hoppy aroma, maybe centennial hops. Nice mouthfeel. Flavor well-balanced with hops, malt, and a citrusy kick to it. Pretty good pale ale.

Aftertaste is not the best but very fruity flavor. Could use some more hops but another quality Hales Ale

Picked up a bottle of this at the bottle shop today in my, I want to buy stuff I haven’t tried, trip. Dark apricot color, tastes good. Has a nice bit little bit of hoppiness that gets caught up into the malty flavor. A bit thicker than I expected. It’s a real pale ale boys and girls. Something to sit and enjoy, not to blast down cause ’damn it’s hot outside’. I am pleased with this beer, no off flavors or bitter astringency. Nice almost fall afternoon beer for me, glad I finally picked it up.

More malty and full-bodied than most American Pale Ales’s. Similar in quality to the Sierra Nevada, but with less hop. Extremely well balanced.

jigglyjock (165) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2009
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.

Very drinkable. For fans of Pale Ale - I would think this would be quite excellent. Not overly hopped like most Pales are these days.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - AUG 9, 2010
On tap at the brewery 8-4-10. Pours a hazy deep gold color with a big hop nose, typical pacific NW hops - citrusy, grapefruit. Clean malt profile with a big bitter backbone and big hop aroma. Lighter body makes the hops really stick out, maybe a little too much. Balanced definitely toward the bitter side. Dry finish without much sweetness.
