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.

Editor’s note: also known as Original Pale American Ale, first brewed on July 4, 1983

Very nice, hoppy, easy drinking APA. Good flavor, not overly citrusy or yeasty or malty but it sure glides down the hatch well. Nice effort for my first Hale’s product

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 20, 2001
This beer defines the pale ale style. More assertive and bold than English pales, but not wildly over-hopped like many West Coast ales, this Seattle brew is perhaps the world’s best balanced beer. Incredibly drinkable and smooth. One of my top ten, and the beer that really got me started on craft beer. The ultimate session beer.

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,

benpickens (487) - Camarillo, California, USA - AUG 5, 2006
Pours with a small white frothy head. Very aromatic with biscuity, flowerlike, aromas. The hops dominates the malt and there is a very bitter hops finish.

zombywoof (462) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Moderate aroma of citrus-more orange than grapefruit with a hint of piney hop. Medium bitterness with some resiny spruce hops. Good but nothing really special.

Cascade hops aroma. Nice malty flavors. This one never dissappoints.

Hanuta06 (446) - Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Serving: from tap at Vostok Dumpling House. Aroma: heavy, floral hops. Appearance: average-sized, creamy, off-white, initial head with very good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Cloudy, dark-amber body. Taste: lightly bitter initial flavor and moderately sour, grapefruit finish with average duration. Palate: medium body with oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall: excellent. Great aroma, interesting taste.

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.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2002
Attractive orange-apricot hue, slightly hazy clarity, lacy but very thin head. Aroma is also quite light and floral (wish it were a little more prominent). Hops come through immediately, while malt is less a taste presence than a body-enhancer. Finish is clean and medium-dry with slight citrusy quality that is most interesting, felt all the way to the back of the palate. This is a very refreshing brew...I wish it had a tad more malt flavor to accompany its nice mouthfeel, but it is still a very interesting offering. Re-Rate 6/29/02 This time head a bit rockier and longer-lasting, and the aroma a bit more prominent...other impressions hold as before...

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.
