jgb9348 (5067) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Crisp copper coloured body with a thick, five centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of metal, light hops, crisp nutty malt and a bit of resin - nice. Medium-bodied; Grassy and nutty hop flavours coupled with some decently strong malt flavours and ending with a little nuttiness, but a good shaped malt backbone. Aftertaste shows some light caramelised sugar sweetness and a touch from fruit, but the malt still overpowers the hops throughout. Overall, a decent APA with a large nuttiness and a touch of resinous bitterness at the end. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Manassas, Virginia on 28-March-2015 for US$1,99 (received into Total Wine on 04-March-2015) sampled at home in Washington on 14-June-2015.

unclemike (2527) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Pale amber with a tight creamy white head. The nose is quite piny but with a distinct note of caramel and toffee on the back. Its not really sweet in fact the bitterness here is quite assertive. A bit of tropical juiciness on the back but with a sort of muddy/yeasty quality that I could probably do without. Quite woody on the finish. An okay pale ale.

Clear golden pour with a single finger head. Aroma of bright flowery hops. Taste has some hints of grain, a little cereal. Flowery hops and grass, a little citrus. Light mouth, easy drinking. No lace.

Its alright. Really malt forward. Immediately I just got hit in the face with sweet weird maltiness. Its not really what I was expecting honestly. Theres not a lot of hoppiness and its nauseatingly sweet.

SPDickerman (1047) - Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Pours orange with a small white head. Smells strongly of citrus with a malt backbone. Taste is bitter citrusy with a solid malt sweetness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Nebraska Cardinal Pale Ale finishes a lingering soft bitterness.

PhatB420 (723) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - APR 25, 2015
Can into a sweet glass. Pours a orange marmalade mixture. Aroma of pine, tree, hops, grass. Head is minimal and invasive, then jumps. Taste of hops garden, flat pine tree amber, hops, resin, dry melon, old grapefruit. All mighty american pale ale here. Perfect

Tmoney99 (11818) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2015
Draft. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate complex citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew.

Large vacuous bubbles, big khaki head. Candied oranges, lemons, limes and some tropical fruit Smells sugary sweet and appealing - honey. Some flinty minerality pairs up to a pretty strong hop smack for a pale ale. Couple that with the great aroma and you've got a pretty nifty pale ale with a nice cascade hop kick and nutty/biscuity Munich malt backbone ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
