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.

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.

Pale crystal clear yellow a white head but minimal lacing. Aroma of hops, some fruit and a hint of spice. Thin body with a flavor of apples - very interesting and unexpected. Finish balanced towards malt and a clean but light bitterness. A decent beer on its own, but it makes for a surprisingly bland North Western Pale Ale.

Interesting name. Poured a moderately carbonated medium gold and delivered a smallish foamy white head which departed laceless. Aroma was nicely hopped and floral, as was the taste.

12oz bottle: Apperance is a golden brown with white head, aroma is bland of malt, flavor not much to write about slightly malt a little to much carbonation, pretty bland pale ale.

You’d think that by association alone, that the beer brewed by Full Sail would have something to it. Unfortunately, this is just another mass brewed pale ale, with nothing going for it.

The body is a clear golden color, short 1" white head which went away with as much as a whimper, and clear carbonation bubbles floating away. Aroma has a moldy grassy note (like lifing up the lid of the grass barrell after a few days fermenting), very light citrus notes and some bran cereal thing going on. Flavor is an okay balance of hops and malt, but it seemed so watered down it was barely noticeable. Palate seemed crazy carbonated. I suppose it’d do in a pinch, but if there are other options I’d seek them out.

Bottle - Not my favorite beer from the Henry Weinhard’s collection. My friend got me started with Private Reserve, but my favorite has to be the Blonde. The Blue Boar to me has a bitter taste.

A truly average beer, below average when compared to any decent Pale Ale. Better than Bud, but not by a wide margin.

33 cl bottle, Fargo, ND, USA. Pale yellow, skunky aroma in the bottle, balanced hop and malt with some pepper on the aftertaste. On sale for 50 cents a bottle, it’s pretty good, drinkable for a bbq.
