A half finger of head on a clear, copper body. the aroma is lemon and honey with a wonderful floral scent. The taste is medium bitterness beginning to end and a faint sweetness; comfortable. The mouth is moderate carbonation and medium body. Enjoyable and good.

Bottle:   Hazy amber, frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Soft citrusy hop nose.   Smooth yet subtle hoppy start, nice malt backing (more than most Pales).   Finishes quick, not too bright.   Full bodied for sure.   Good mouthfeel, but needs a bit more hop bite, some brightness. &nbps Otherwise a nice chewy Pale Ale.

one of the few local brews from portland that was brought back to me. A bit of a letdown, flat and boring.

22 oz. bottle from John’s in Portland. Transparent copper appearance. Carries a thin and wispy head. Aroma is light notes of citrus, mainly orange, and a touch of malt sweetness. Not very pungent, but it’s good enough. The aroma seems to be getting fruitier as it warms. This has an odd malt flavor that doesn’t seem to go away. A touch of citrus hop hits my taste buds, but honestly, this just doesn’t cut it for me. The texture is nice and light. This is a very easy drinker. The lingering bitterness is quite nice, but still, not really cutting it for me. Very easy to drink, and a fine pale ale, but not enough hops.

Not a bad pale ale. Got a medium hop bite and loads of light malt notes going on here. The aroma leads you to IPA then the flavor backs off. Good Session beer for a Timbers game.

Reid (2051) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2011
22 oz bottle from the new Freddys in Wilsonville. $3.79 Dep golden/orange ale with a nice thick,bubby off white head. Really nice hoppy aromas from this one smells very fresh citric,spicy and floral. Taste is mildly hoppy and quite sweet.light bitterness bathes the tongue and a fruity finish. Ok on the palate..thin but thats good in a summer beer. Overall a nice simple pale for the summer.

Draught. Pale gold with medium head. Hoppy aroma like one of Hennie’s Cape ales. Medium to full body. Malt with a good hop cloak. Spicey hop finish.
