If youíre in Washington right now, itís hard to find someone whoís not excited about the 2013 football season. When Sports Radio 950 KJR asked for a local beer dedicated to the fans, we answered with a session pale ale we call The 12th Can. To us, a perfect game-day craft beer canít be dumbed down in taste or ingredients, but it shouldnít be so over the top you need to switch to something lighter after only one... with Cascade Hops (C Hops!) along with Maris Otter and Crystal Malts to produce a beer unmistakably NW in flavor and super drinkable from beginning to end. Also, since you have to enough to share, weíve released them as a 12-Pack of tallboys. Pairs well with victory. 4.5% ABV. 32 IBU

Bookseeb (116) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Appearance has a nice golden amber color supporting a steady dissipating head leaving nill lace. Smell of the malt and floral hops. Taste seems to have more bittering than aroma hops leaving a lingering bitterness in the aftertaste having a little of the sweetness from the malt. Mouthfeel is medium light with good carbonation. Tried it once and thatíll be about it.

Lagerboy (1228) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
One pint can. Clear orange copper, off-white fading foam. Smell and taste is very mild caramel malt infused with floral citrus hops, quite thin and aqueous. Average carbonation, light bodied, moderately hopped. Better than Bud. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

Golden in color, clear with a thin head. Good amount of malt light hops this was a easy drinking pale ale. Just as it was meant for the masses. Go 12th Man

bvc (1158) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 Can poured into glass. Darker golden with ample white head that settles to a smaller thin even layer. Husky grain notes, plenty sulfur and stewed corn with no hops to mention. Husky grain, corn nuts, eggy sulfur, thin finish. Pretty good looking can, but it stops there. Down the drain with this dms bomb.

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - DEC 11, 2013
16oz can pours a pale golden color with a medium fizzy white head that leaves light lacing smell of dough, citrus and caramel. Tastes of the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with Good carbonation. Pretty run of the mill for a pale ale but very sessionable which is what they were aiming for. Go Seahawks!

chuckstout (247) - Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bready aromas, pours a golden/Amber with a pillowing head that dissipates quickly with minimal head retention. Nice bread and malt character pretty clean and balanced

COD. Seattle airport. Draft. Tough beer to drink. Had a grain taste. More lager like than pale ale. Wonít drink another pint.

kramer (4939) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Can, at brewery. Pours a clear dark gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is lightly hoppy with bready pale malt. The flavor is just lightly bitter with a little caramel malt and a thin lightly bitter finish. Light bodied and thin with fizzy carbonation. Your average Pale Ale, not sure why they are so over-protective about this beer. They wouldnít sell me a single can to go like their other beers. I did get a single to drink there though.
