3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught, at the brewpub
Orangey-amber colour with a slight haze. Soft aroma of breadcrusty malts and limey-kumquatty hops. These are Pallisades, a variety I’m not familiar with. Slightly orangey, toasty, nutty flavours. Bitterness is moderate, finish is balanced. It’s not a show-stopper, but it’s well-made.

Draft at the brewpub. Slightly cloudy medium amber with bright candied orange highlights. Mild citrus nose--orange and tangerine. Light, somewhat watery body. Could probably do with a bit more carbonation. Mushy mid-palate, caramel and oranges. Not much finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was kind of unimpressive considering the IPA was so delicious. Has some citrus hop notes as well as a simple malt body that was actually kind of weak, and had just a hint of bitterness in the finish.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the brewery
Clear orange color. Butter and popcorn nose, with a similar flavor: pale malts, earthy, butter and old socks - complete with a little bit of cardboard and wet dog. Something went wrong here, or is it just me?

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draft: LaConner Brewing Company in LaConner, WA) Lightly malty and slightly woody nose is somewhat balanced by a very gentle hop aroma. Pretty mildly flavored as well, lightly malty, a bit earthy, but though the mild bitterness of the hops can easily balance the malt, actual hoppy flavor is tough to discern. Golden colored, slightly hazy, and topped by a smallish off-white head that fades to a ring and leaves only a few traces of lace on the glass. Pretty lame and generic for a pale ale, lacking anything that generates some excitement.

Pacific Northwest Vacation 2007...
8/18/2007: The color of LaConner Pale is hazy pale yellow with a slightly orange hue to it. There is also a small, forthy white head on top initially. Pale and graining malt are mostly noticeable in the aroma. The flavor is also pale grainy malt along with some toasted malt, a hint of butter, and an accompanying moderate bitterness. The finish is dry and spicy (similar to beers made with rye). The body is medium, but both watering and slightly milky at the same time. I guess a sood way to describe it would be to compate it to the texture of skim milk with droplets of whole milk here and there in it. Overall this was probably my least favorite of the LaConner beers that I sampled...
Draught (5.5% ABV) at LaConner Brewing Company in LaConner, Washington. Rating #5 for this beer...
