3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. Well, a 12-oz bottle right now, but probably a couple dozen other times in the last 20 years, too. Why Iíve not rated this heretofore is a bit of a mystery to me. But here we go. Pours a hazy burnished dark gold with a thin little splotchy film of suds on top. Intermittent drippy lace. Mild grassy corn nutty nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, nuts, and grass on the mid palate. Very mild and easy drinking APA...probably not hoppy enough to really be an APA, but thatís alright. Good little beer.

Dark gold with a nice velvetty head. Aroma is caramel maltiness with some funky hops. Flavor is initially a nice sweet caramel malt, toast, etc with light bittering hops in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap@Hales. Pretty thin for an APA, but not all that bad. Some cascadey type hops, lemony, lightly piney. No big faults, just a bit too light.

Pours a clear amber with average head. Aroma is lightly floral with detectable hops. Flavor is sweet with more hops than usually for an APA. Finishes nicely. Nothing overly impressive in this one.

[3096-20100703] Tap. Mild sweaty dog aroma with floral hints. Hazy, medium orange body with a long-lasting creamy white head. General grainy floral yeast flavour does not have a lot to it other than some bitter citrus notes. Medium body. Sessionable but not my favourite.

Lt brown color, medium head. Lightly hopped, medium malts. Nice smooth malt flavor, some hoppyness, and some malt sweetness. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty, no bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very hazy deep amber body with an off white head. Grapefruit is strong in the initial nose. There is also some nice light straw smells behind the citrus. A very bitter initial orange peel taste is mixed with some grass. There is also a hint of light tobacco. I would like a little more malt to balance out the hops, this like trying to drink straight orange bitters. Bleh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I get the impression that this was pretty much the workhorse pale in the Seattle area. Whenever we went to eat at a place that wasnít spefically beer-centric, I could always count on finding either this or Mannyís Pale Ale. At any rate, its a pretty good go-to beer, nicely hoppy and not to filling. I liked it.

Amber color with a smaller cream colored head. Light grapefruit and pine aromas mixed with light caramel. Flavors quite clean and blend well with the aromas. It would be nice if the hotel Iím at had the taps right. Ordered the Blonde first and was quite sure it was the Pale. Then asked for the Pale and then got the blonde. Would have gone into the bar and told then, but Washington State Law would not allow me in with the kids.
