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.

Pours a clear pissy color with very small fizzy white head. Light malt, cheap grain, a bit of citrus and hops, and piss. Not much like a APA, more like a cheap american macro. Not good.

At first, the olfactory is a little acrid on the twist off but that clears to a nice sweet beery smell once poured. Color is just a tad more orange than the ubiquitous pale yellow beer. A little bite on the first taste bud impact but it mellows as the session goes on. Finish is rather gentle, almost like a lager. Not bad. Perhaps even sessionable with it’s lower alky level. I usually don’t care much for APA, but this is not offensive to say the least. Big thanks goes out to riversideAK for a chance to rate this not so local brew!

Medium gold color, small head. A medium bodied ale. Advertised as a “traditional Irish” ale. Malty and slightly hoppy. Smooth taste, perhaps a bit too carbonated? Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

A weak version of a plae ale. But a good lawn mower beer. If it is hot outside and I ned something easy and fast to drink and it is ceap This is a great beer.

Green bottle, so it has some skunk. Airing it out didn’t help. Pale yellow with a white head. Skunky with some grainy cereal. The taste is light corn and grass. There is just a hint of hops. Very light and no where near an APA, more like a light golden, nearly a Kolsch.

Pours a nice golden yellow color. Aromas of malts, hops, and a touch of pine. Flavor has a nice crisp taste with a clean dry finish.

hayduke (4947) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 31, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 Pour yellow with not much head. Not much nose. Not much flavor. Not an APA in my opinion, but a very average pilsner. Almost a drain pour.

Pours a piss yellow color with a thin head. Slightly bitter aroma and taste, but more processed grain. Eh, it’s not all bad... but not much good either.

Bottle. Nose is noticeably hoppy, but the hops smell more like pepper than one of the traditional hop flavors. Taste isn’t all that bitter, but there’s a little bite to it, along with a faint hint of citrus. Not a lot of substance to the flavor, but drinkable.

Bottle... Poured a pale, watery yellow with a thick white head. I think they forgot what style of beer they were making. Sickening aroma of sour malt, and it just tastes like hoppy seltzer water. Very disappointed in this one to be considered a pale ale.
