smooth light and fluffy palate, mild in complexity but refreshing as it is.

Bottle, poured a dark honey color with a good thick head. Nose had a slight piney/citrus smell that was nice but not very strong. Taste had the same that faded pretty quickly to a watery malty kinda finish. Had a slightly malty bitter palate feel. Was ok at best, but no Sierra Nevada.

Pours a translucent copper/gold with a thin white head. The nose was citrusy, sweet, grassy, some orange peel. The flavor was grassy, waxy, sweet, slightly bitter, also showcased the "foot" taste I’ve come to find in NG stuff. The palate is a bit thin with a mild bitterness.

12 oz, bb Aug 08. Clear burnt orange with a large meringue head that lasts. Aroma is yeasty citrus, honey and iron. Flavor is a mild mix of honey, resin, grain, citrus, peach and gunmetal. Light-medium body is smooth and lightly tingly with a nod to the dry side.

On tap at the Greensboro Grasshoppers game. Not a bad baseball game watching beer. Crisp pale ale with nice pine hop aromas. Faint citrus flavor with some grapefruit hidden in there. The hops were right on for a straight up pale, the body and palate were a little light and faint though.

12-oz. Thanks, Skoi! This was pretty much a direct retread of the Jockamo--earthy, piney hops, diacetyl problems, too light, indifferently brewed and indifferently conceived. Not much of a beer no matter how you slice it.

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 30, 2008
12 oz. bottle courtesy of alexanderj. Hazy, light gold color with thin, white head. Aroma of bready malt with some citrus hops thrown in for good measure. Flavor is a bit malty as well, maybe the hops have dropped out? Nice and clean finish. Not too bad for a spring evening.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Bottle, courtesy of alexanderj. Amber, light orange pour with thin white film on top. Aroma is sweet bready malt, kind of like a czech beer. The flavor is the same, very light / clean palate that would be nice on a warm day, and there is a small amount of bittering / grassy hops in the finish.

NachlamSie (2755) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours a copper color with a very small white head. Mostly malts in the nose on this one. It’s slightly musty, very doughy, and virtually no hops to be found simply by sniffing. Hops are apparent in the flavor, thankfully. This is a rather clean drinking brew. I think it’s interesting that it is a slight departure from a textbook APA, but still identifiable as being such. I would attribute that to the hop choice. Less grapefruit and citrus is found on Natty Greene’s pale, and more pine and grassy flavor is present, though it certainly is not overwhelming. Overall, this is a smooth, very clean pale ale.
