i’ve tasted this many a times and pale ales are actually my favorite style, but this particular batch was underwhelming. almost had a wet blanket aftertaste.

From a can. Nice color nice aroma nice taste. Good ale but nothing special. Typical Portland beer. Lots of overhyped crafts in PDX.

Cloudy amber with a thin head and some lace. Malty aroma with a bit of lemon and lime. Mildly bitter flavor. Just a good drinkable ale with no frills.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden amber with an off-white head. Aroma is a little earthy, classic pine and citrus, some maltiness, and slightly sweet grain. Taste is pine, catty, medium bitterness, slight caramel. Medium body, fizzy. Could pass for an IPA. Not an especially exciting one but pretty good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Oak Hills.
A: Semi clear copper, thin white head.
N: Light hops lend grapefruit, earth, and pine. There’s some mint in here. Cracker underneath.
T: Bitter for the most part. Lightly sweet.
M: Medium-light body, tickling carbonation, no alcohol.
O: Mediocre pale ale. In the day of clean and hoppy, this doesn’t stack up. Needs to study Sierra Nevada.

Draft pour pint at the brand new McMenamins Anderson School. This is officially the first beer I’ve ever had at a school. Count it!! Pours a dark cloudy copper (I think.., its dark and in a plastic cup). Sweet caramel malt aroma with a short hop. Sweet matching flavor with a biting bitter finish. I’m very impressed with this place. Less with the beer, but not bad.
