Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces nicely. Aroma has a good amount of an earthy bread note backed by a light pine note with a hint of backing grass. Flavor has more of a citrus note with a good amount of backing grain with a hint of underlying bitterness.

Has it in a bottle. Thx booze dude. Expectations were low. Turned out to be enjoyable. Mild hops and malty flavor. Easy drinking pale ale

On tap at the Millstream Brewing Company beer garden. Maybe it was the fresh pour from the tap, or maybe it was the weather, or something like that, but I really enjoyed this on my recent Sunday visit to the Amana Colonies. So this is a relabelled version of Warsh Pail? It seems better to me, a fuller body, fuller mouthfeel, and more hops. The body is medium copper colored with a light khaki head. The aroma has some just-sliced grapefruit and light bread crust. There is also some nutty character. The taste has some out-of-the-oven bread crust with some light orange peels behind that. Very quaffable and quite likeable, a decent ale from Germans in Iowa.

Roasted malts not good. Aroma less present and thin head. Say random bad stuff. Okay, it’s crap. I didn’t like it much at all. Who roasts malts in a pale ale anyways? I once had someone try to tell me that the "pale" doesn’t mean color, but something about extra hoppiness, I was like, "wut???"

Originally reviewed: 5/14/09. Pours a deep copper orange with a decent 2-finger ivory head on top. Minimal retention leaves some decent sip rings and sticky webs on the glass. Nice. Smells like biscuits, caramel, and floral hops. Pleasant.
The mouthfeel on this is overly carbonated. This is extremely spritzy and biting. I’m turned off by this. Flavor is slightly of caramel at first, mixed with some bready, husky flavor, but this turns quickly to a sour, slightly astringent flavor. This is different I must say. Not bad, but not that great. Glad I had the chance to try it though.
