WABeerFiend (376) - - JAN 16, 2015
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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color. Pearly head, some lacing. Aroma is sweet, with hints of honey. Some malt, very little hop aroma. Palate is thin. Overall this is a very drinkable ale, but unremarkable.

Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2003 Floral notes with citrus. Typical of Cascade hops and its northwest cousins. Prefect malt balance clean flavor some may miss the yeasty flavors that many other pale ales have but this is a favorite of mine

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.

Hab40oz (242) - Grants Pass, Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2004
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

Dubbercody (213) - Vancouver, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2007
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.
