Pale Ale's on the coasts of this country are turning into hoppy monsters, but our beer is more mild, and about balance. It has enough bitterness to match the maltiness provided by the pale malt base. It gets its citrus zing from extensive dry-hopping with Cascade hops. This beer was first made in a few small test batches in 2003. The response was so incredibly positive, that it has worked it’s way into a year round beer. A hoppy IPA in the central plains... how exciting!

As much as I love Mill Stream Brewery this one is a bit rough around the edges. Not bad if you love IPAs.

Bottle. Pours a hazy straw yellow with some white head. Decent citrus hops, fairly malty, possibly old/stale. Overall a nice beer, one of Millstreams better beers.

Not much aroma to this. Pours a brownish red with fully diminishing head, excellent lacing. The taste is a slight bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter. I think this is a good beer just sat on it too long.

Pours hazy gold with lots of minute suspended flocculation. Aroma is piney and herbal (basil, maybe rosemary). Flavor is sweet with a nutty character as the malts warm, transitioning to a very sinuous hop brightness with a mildy veggie note. Flavor drops back to a subdues nutty malt in the finish, with a bit of grass and a slight bitterness. Really nice.

beernbourbon (1558) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Tap at CID airport tap house. Pour is almost clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is light chemical and soft hop notes up front with a light caramel malt note. Flavor also with light chemical, faint hop, and the same light, off tarty fruit taste of the octoberfest. Definitely a line problem here; or maybe a problem of too much detergent in the glass cleaning. I don’t know what it is, but it’s not right. I will have to revisit this later.

12oz bottle 9/29/13 (Hy-Vee Cedar Rapids)-40° in Shaker-Pours a murky orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Taste of hops, malt, and citrus. This medium bodied brew is not bad.

Nothing blows me away... Just a pale...would be awesome on a hot day at the brewery in Amana ...but here on Illinois it's just ok ... Drinkable but in no way memorable...in no way ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. M. From Iowa. A big thank you to John M.
Clear amber colour with a medium sized creamy off-white head. Fruity and tea like hops, moderate bitterness and sweet malt in the great aroma. The flavour is even better. Very tasty. A lot of hoppy bitterness, herbal notes and sweetish malt. Balanced.

On tap, clear amber with a small white head and a very light lace. Aroma is heavy on citrus. Medium bodied and oily with average carbonation. Taste is medium bitter and finished much the same. Overall, a beginners pale ale.

notalush (5732) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Hazy amber pour - thick, soapy lace - juicy, resinous cascade nose, with a lightly bready malt base underneath - simple aroma, but pleasant - fairly creamy mouthfeel - flavor is fairly acidic and quite husky and dirty - bitter grapefruit rind and other bitter citrus notes - light woodiness - mild metallic notes - finish of lingering huskiness and some caramel and toasty Munich malt notes, which seem very out of place in this style - not all that enjoyable.
