A nice bready aroma with just a hint of hops bitterness. The flavor was a little bland...some breadiness, a little hops bitterness, but quite watery. This is a fine Pale Ale...not great...and, so far, my least favorite from this brewery.

I liked the yesty-bread aroma, along with the chewy mouthfeel. Pretty well-balanced, although it is a little bit sour as the cascades mix in toward the finish. But still, bartender, I’ll have another!

The Cascades (?) really kick you in the ass with this brew. These guys eased up on the aroma hops, it would seem, but dumped in lots of bittering hops. Oh well. Can’t have it all. A nice effort.

Amber pour with a light white head. Nose is floral with a definate malty sweetness to it. Flavor doesnt live up to the nose though. Strange biscuity(?) flavor to it. Dont know about this one.

Medium gold color, large head. Hoppy aroma. A smooth and hoppy pale ale. Full flavor, full smooth mouthfeel. Nice floral hoppyness. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

uglybastard (101) - Riverside, California, USA - SEP 12, 2002
A very clear honey-golden color with a large creamy head that stays with you to the end and leaves a lovely lace on the glass. Sweet and biting hop notes to the nose that makes it smell like a potential hop-monster; though, it really isn’t. Fairly mellow and well balanced up front with some pepperyness toward the middle. Toward the end there is a ton of hop bitterness. The beer seems a bit light and watery in the mouth.

Clean, citrusy aroma. Full bodied tart pale ale with a smooth finish. Very enjoyable.

foduck (328) - Denton, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2002
Hoppy and toasty aroma. White head, not very big but it lasts, golden colored. Hoppy flavor, a little thin, then some fruitiness in the finish. I drank some Red Seal right before this, so it feels a little thin on my palate. Overall an enjoyable beer, but not as good as their IPA or their double IPA.
