COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light-bodied, aromatic, Irish-style specialty ale. Double-hopped with PAcific Northwest Cascade hops for the flavor and smoothness of a traditional ale without bitterness of heaviness.

Bottle. "Double hopped"!? With Cascade?!? WTF? I don’t want to waste precious seconds off my life even responding to such ridiculous bullshit. This is a pale lager, and a pretty shitty one at that. Like every other Weinhard piss juice. FAIL.

Light skunky beer with a hoppy taste. Not my favorite but I can drink it. It’s cheap and easy to find.

This has always been my go to beer. As far as a cheap, light beer goes, this will always be in my fridge.

Green bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of bread, spicy hops, light skunk and a hint of earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, light spicy hops and a hint of earthiness with a smooth finish.

This history rich name is contracted and brewed by Full Sail which makes great beer, this however, is not one of them. Pee colored pour. Skunked, wet paper, and cheap beer taste. Some flavor but none of it is good. pass.

Pale yellow/gold, thin white head. Aroma of corn and mild hop. Taste is mild and lame. Somewhat refreshing when very cold.

12 oz bottle. First impressions before even tasting it: boring. It looks boring, smells boring. I imagine it’s going to taste boring. It smells skunky, cheap. Why breweries who should know better continue to use green and clear bottles instead of brown is incomprehensible to me. It almost always creates this skunk aroma and flavor. Idiots. It pours pretty much like a pale lager--maybe a little darker, but not much--no head, shitty lacing. Tastes of skunk, cheap adjuncts. This doesn’t even taste like a pale ale. It tastes like a macro pale lager. This is without a doubt the worst pale ale I’ve ever had.

Washington is rating Henry Weinhard’s. 12-oz screwtop, brought to me by my boss as a gesture of kindness. And because he doesn’t feel like moving a bunch of beers over to our new offices in the next building. Either way, it’s the kind of thing that puts a fellow in a fine frame of mind. Pours a crystal clear pale yellow with loose grayish fizz on top. Mild nutty, corny, slightly earthy-hoppy nose. Watery light body, a bit fizzy. Corn, nuts, and earthy hop on the mid palate. Amazing neutral finish for an "APA." But not an awful beer by any means. Just horribly dull.

Skunky Aroma. Pale golden in color... there’s really not much else to say about this other than I"m really disappointed" and I don’t see how they can call this a Pale Ale.
