Easy drinking, nice balance. Light body but overachieving in flavor. Would like to get it out in Chicago

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.

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.

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

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

Thanks Scott. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving a light foamy lacing sticking around the sides of the glass decently. The smell had a semi - sweet malty citrus over top of a light piney bitter hops. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors to blend nicely. A dry sweet citrus aftertaste leads to a decent sticky finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation good for the style and for me as its not too sharp. Overall, I say this was a decent APA that I could have again.

Light orange color, crown of haystack lace. Aroma is chlorine hops. There is an alkaline, metallic component to the aroma. Some cooked vegetable/broccoli. Flavor is very soft hops; its from a can so they should be relatively well-preserved. There is a touch of perfume, but its a little too pillowy. The yeast is front-and-center. Feels soft and pillowy. Its not an unpleasant beer, but it is a very weak beer.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought dough, bread, slight caramel into a bit of yeast, touch of grass and floral notes, touch of orange peel as well. Taste was a mix of orange, red fruit, some floral notes into a bit of biscuit, caramel, slight dough, hints of spice, finishing bitter.

Drinkable enough but many hoppier, crisper APAs out there. Too much graininess, grass on the back end. Not bad

Pours a clear coppery amber color with just off-white head. Citrus, floral notes, and a little grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice balanced malt profile, but not too much. Good amount of hops for a pale ale.
