Absolutely wonderful. Tastes much like an IPA with a nice amount of hops. Pours nicely with a half inch white head and the beer itself is darker (think Sam Adams Boston Lager). Taste and palate is beautiful.

A damn good APA. Dark golden pour with a decent white head. Aroma is piney, hoppy, very floral. Flavor is much the same with hops coming out throughout with a good malt backbone holding it’s end up. I took home a growler. Hopefully this beer gets put into regular rotation there as I enjoyed it immensely. Meal tip: Try this beer with some of McKenzie’s salsa and chips. Excellent stuff.

No aroma to speak of but the flavor swoed up with a nice citrus twist. Hoppy as well but. Middle of the road.

Orange/ Yellow in color with small head. Nice hoppy aroma. The taste was of floral hops. The finish was fruity. Really good beer.

Very crisp, very clean, smooth pale ale, a little lighter on the color side as it was a bright copper color, but nicely hopped, spicey aftertaste, very enjoyable APA

Cloudy amber body, no head. Finally a beer from this place I can get into! Big, hoppy flavor, with all the elements of citrus, pine, and loads of floweryness. I could drink this all night.

From draught at McKenzie Brew House II. This one has a nice hoppy aroma, with citrusy notes of grapefruit and some apricot. Sweet caramel malt but mostly nice hoppy character. Has a golden amber clear body with thin white lacing head on top. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with pretty aggressive hoppy character, much more so that the Czech pilsener. Good malty character, too, with caramel. Hoppy throughout, with bitter finish. Fresh and grassy hops and is a nice hardy bitter ale.

Medium size offwhite head, good lasting lace. Clear gold/copper color, good looking brew. Good spicey hop nose. Medium body, nice mouthfeel. Plenty of hop flavors with a good malt backing. Hops are resiny, moreso as it warms up. Finish is dry with a clean hop flavor. Good drinkin brew! Nice pub also.
