Nice hop smell and light golden amber color. The taste is similar to most Ipas, more bitter than normal.

On tap @ the brewpub: Pours a hazy orange gold with a white head. Aroma, citrus and pale malts, some floral notes as well. Flavor was very similar to the aroma, decent beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A deep-hazed dark amber with red highlights (that could have been from the stage lights...) and a creamy cap that laced all the way down. Heavy hopcit aroma with noticable sweetness and grapefruit, but not much else. BIG, sweet malts in flavor with BIG citric hops. IPA-worthy, if not IIPA-worthy. A little watery in the mouth, but a really awesome beer.
(A previous rater mentioned that the Ale House seemed more interested in being a "hot spot" than a "craft brewery". It seems to me that the owners (if not the brewers) like to let loose and offer/enjoy some entertainment. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. I am one beer drinker that likes to enjoy a good beer with some great live music. I’m sure it would be a totally different experience had I visited during the day, but I don’t regret my visit nor begrudge the management for wanting to draw a crowd on a Friday night.)

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Medium amber color with light sticky head. Sweet citrus, light pine aroma. Crisp and clean. Flavor follows nose. Like all other MKE brews, very flavorful, very drinkable, and well balanced

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I really liked this beer. In fact, I had several last night at the Ale House. The picture of the beer on the left does it justice. The Pull Chain is a orangish/brownish and pours with a slight bit of head on the top.
The taste was my favorite part - very hoppy with some malty aspects. It leaves a similar aftertaste as a German pilsner with a little more earthy tones. A great beer to drink all night or to enjoy on its own.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Interesting hop nose that brings orange and grapefruit, along with grassy fields to the nose. Flavor hops start the ride and then reveal a nice rich malty body that isn't exactly caramelly, but sweet nonetheless. Bitter end is quick and strong, leaving behind all of the ingredients for a mighty hops belch!

As part of a sampler at the Milwaukee Ale House in Grafton, WI. Thoroughly enjoyed this one, nice subtle pale ale that wasn’t overtly hoppy, clean finish, not too bitter. Would definitely try again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber body, minimal white head. Generic piney hop aroma. Light caramel malt flavor that’s dominated by resiny, piney hops. Overall, an enjoyable pale.

Malty slightly carmel aroma. Really thought I would smell more hops. Malty thick first taste sort of a bitter aftertaste then quickly goes to dry. A little more hoppiness and this would be a real favorite
