The original Extra Pale Ale, this is the one that started it all. Our first brew was introduced in 1989 in Golden Gate style kegs. We have stayed true to our beginnings and still brew it the way we did back then. A bright golden hued ale with a medium body and a crisp spicy /floral hop character and very mild bitterness. This unfiltered ale has a pleasing mouth feel and remains our most popular brew. This beer goes with everything and every occasion.

Chudwick (2182) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUL 15, 2013
12oz bottle - pours unfiltered gold with white head. Nose is skunky grass with an emphasis on grass. Flavor adds light bread or caramel. refreshing after inflating a plastic pool in 90+ degree heat. Very easy to drink considering I donít like the style (thought I was buying an APA). A little light on the palate.

Steelhead Extra Pale Ale is a really good beer start to finish. Great taste and good appearance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone4S
