COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with the finest two-row malted barley, caramel malts and Cascade hops, this true American Pale Ale carries a hearty hop aroma and a rich sparkling hop flavor.

It a good pale ale. Balanced between the hops and the malt.

Had this one bottled at the Stevens Point Brewery. Darker yellow pour than I’m used to, with a foamy tannish head, nose of hops and roses but really not as hoppy as I like. Decent.

GJF (1275) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - AUG 5, 2008
This is a decent beer. Pours a clear gold with a thick white head and some lacing. Faint aroma of malt and grass. Flavor is fairly malty. Clean and straightforward. It’s fairly two-dimensional in flavors, but it’s pretty refreshing.

Onslow (1210) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2009
Pour from 12 oz bottle. Coppery amber brew with thin beige head. Pleasant aroma of caramel and malt. Light bodied with lively carbonation – sweet maltiness at the start is balanced by the immediate hoppiness that lingers towards the finish. Ends dry with little lingering bitterness. Very well crafted and very well balanced.

This rating vanished a while back, so here I am... a rather lacklucter beer.

Clear orange amber with little lasting head. Smell is mostly malty with no big hops in there. Flavor is burnt hops - bitter yet almost metallic. Not very well balanced. Overall, hoppy = yes, balanced = no

WabashMan (1014) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAR 11, 2003
A decent light copper color and small/medium slightly off white head start this one. Aroma is mostly malt and a little spicy. Flavor is, in my opinion, very thin and lacks any depth to make it a better pale. Fairly crisp with a very light hop accent, but there's a lot missing here. An average pale, at best.

doubelknv3 (994) - Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Crisp, with nose notes of sweet malt (carmel) and grains. Amber-copper with lasting thick head. Notes of carmel, hops, and spices that contribute to a decent balance. Smooth with a mild bitter finish.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2007
I thought this was a decent pale ale, and a good value ($0.99 a bottle at Murray’s). Still, in a world crowded with APAs, I can think of others I’d prefer. Color is a copper red amber (darker than I expected) with lots of white head. Appearance is the highlight of this beer. Smell was fairly pleasant and lightly hoppy. Taste was a bit thin, but had some good hop bite to it. Mouthfeel a bit watery, but not bad.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours from the can with a slightly hazy copper/amber color, about an inch of cream-colored fizzy head. As fizzy as the head was, I expected it to disappear immediately, but it didn’t. Sure, it backed down considerably, but a film and ring of foam remains to provide some decent lacing throughout the glass. Slight malty aroma, nothing exceptional, but not too shabby. Mild malty flavor with a good amount of spicy/peppery hops. Delicious. Body on the light side with very prominent carbonation. Finishes a little bit dry, with more spicy hops and bitterness.
