3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours a vivid orange-gold with a high, off-white, lacy, mixed-grain head. Nose is bright and floral with herbal notes; there’s thyme and menthol elements. Good bitterness on the front of the mouth and a strong, orange citrus punch; there is also an underlying umami/hard cheese note. Finish turns sweeter as the orange-caramel malt comes to the forefront. Light carbonation. Nice.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Pours a clear light copper body under a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin film and left a bit of lace. The nose is light floral and citrusy hops over a slightly sweet caramel malt base. The flavor is a little lacking in hops, even for an APA. A little too much husky and grainy malt and way too much lingering sweetness. This doesn’t really even come across as a Pale Ale, it’s more like an Amber. Light bodied with soft gentle carbonation and a lingering sweetness. Pretty boring stuff.

Draft at B terminal at OMA airport. Pours a clear copper color with a frothy tan head. Light, hoppy aroma with grassy notes. Sweet, hoppy taste. Starts wet and finishes dry. Good balance. My first Nebraska beer I believe. Very impressed. Excited to try more.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cardinal Pale Ale from Nebraska Brewery pours a beautiful copper gold with a foamy white head. Served in a pint glass it has a piney resinous aroma with hints of grapefruit. Medium bodied with a somewhat scratchy mouthfeel that says "I am here". In terms of flavor it is a clean zesty pine with a dash of citrsu/grapefruits and possibly some floral/herbal elements in the finish. A solidly satisfying pale ale.

12 oz can purchased at Lukas Liquors in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is slight hazed copper orange with a one inch light tan head that falls with nice lacing. The aroma is dusty, some grass, bit of citrus. The taste is a decent balance of orange citrus hops, the grass and cracker malt. The palate is light to medium bodied, soft natural carbonation and a clean crisp finish. Solid Pale Ale.
