Can. A- Tangerines, citrus, hoppy, piney, woody. A- Orange color, hazy liquid, off white head. T- Citrus, bitter, pine, tangerines. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- Not near as bitter as I was expecting. A fair amount of citrus, but not really that much depth. It was good but nothing I’d really crave.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2271) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 21, 2014
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.

theisti (3276) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - NOV 7, 2014
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.

12oz can, thanks to voodoofish65usf for sharing. Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Good ropes and dots of lace. Nice ruby red grapefruit aroma up front. Quite a bit of it, tastes more like fruity grapefruit than hoppy grapefruit, really. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Some toasty spicy malt. Medium body. Kind of a soft, light to moderate carbonation. Not a bad pale ale. Interesting aroma to it. Nice, cool amount of grapefruit, without being too bitter or overly hoppy. Maybe it’s older, maybe the hops are muted? Not bad as it is now, in any case.

Can, hazy darker gold. White head. Middle hop flavor, not citrus not pine. Pine flavor, malt profile. Nice pale ale.

12 oz can pour. Again, love the can designs by these guys. Pours a medium copper color with a really nice, sweet caramel malt aroma. Delicious, medium bodied pale ale with a nice balance of sweet malt and hops. Yet another solid beer from these guys. Good stuff.

Golden color out of the can with a foamy white head. Citrus and resin hop nose. Bitter grapefruit rind and some sour dough graininess. I get a lot of alcohol out of this for some reason. Long grassy finish. Okay pale ale.

12 oz. can from Total Wine, Norfolk, VA. Deep yellowish-orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of wet grass, Earth, and citrus peel. Very nice bitter taste of pine and grapefruit but the well balanced pale malt profile helps to sweeten and keep this from becoming a heavily hopped APA bordering on an IPA. Finish is mildly bitter but mostly clean. A very well done pale ale.
