COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic Northwest pale ale and McMenamins top selling beer. This rich chestnut colored gem is a model of harmony between hops and malted barley. Hammerhead's signature Cascade hop nose and intense hopped flavor blend nicely with the caramel tones from the crystal malt. This beer has a vocal following. To run out is an unforgivable sin. Malts: Pale Malt; Crystal Malt Hops: Cascades Specifications: Original Gravity: 1.056; Terminal Gravity: 1.010; Alcohol by Weight: 4.7% Calories/pint: 241

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.

Aquilo (622) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 12, 2016
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.

Tap at Queen Anne location in Seattle. Copper pour. Some citrus, cardboard, foul herbal - this is bad.

penstemon (224) - Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2016
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.

Murky brown with off- white head. B-wine malty syrupy sweet aroma. Sticky sweet; tastes like it smells. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sarlacc83 (1932) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 10, 2015
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.

Sampler from Boon’s Treasury. Medium to dark copper in color. Sweet hoppy nose with a little breadiness. Decent hoppiness with a sweet malty backbone. Light sweet finish. Some breadiness and hops. Pretty tasty pale ale.
