COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer has a golden colored body with a creamy white head. Its slightly sweet malt flavor makes up the base and offers a supporting role to the refreshing hop profile. Cascade hops provide a floral, citrus and almost fruity character to this well balanced easy drinking ale. Back by popular demand, ďPaleoozaĒ is an old favorite and an early original in our portfolio of great beers! 14į

This draft brew from the brewery poured a small head of foamy fine to medium sized mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated transparent light orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was a simple mild malt hop one. The mouth feel was tingly from start to finish with a tingly hop feel. The flavor mostly crisp clean hops.

A nice, straightforward American Pale. Well balanced malt and hop in the aroma and the flavour, a little light, a little bit of depth. My batch was metallic at first until aging mellowed it a bit, otherwise I might rate it higher.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Draft at NHBC. Poured a small off-white head that mostly diminished, fine-small sized bubbles, fair lacing, transparent, minimal carbonation, and a yellow gold hue. Malty, hoppy nose and ditto for the flavor. Palate was tingly and hoppy.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2005
Clear orange to deep golden. The had if white, foamy and small, but lacing a nice impression. Aromatic cascade make for a very floral, but also oangey, grapefruity. Minty undertones procures a welcome leafyness. Dry and hoppy with mellow toasted malts backing. Fruity, light bodied and drinkable, though in a rather sour fashion, lightly yeast at that on top of citric. Far from complex, but very clean and an unpretentious hard-worker to quench the thirst. Soft bodied, fitting medium carbonation. Unspectacular, but good.

(Bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of fresh florals and citrus. Flavor of sweet malt, caramel, and florals.

DrnkMcDermott (2776) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Bottled. Light brown pour under a thick bumpy head. Has a pleasing APA smell, malty and a tad hoppy, with no off smells in this 4+ month old bottle. Dandy hoppy taste, with pine and pineapple at work on top of a toasty malt base. A nice peppery burn going down sums up to make this a fine drinking experience. I may be over-rating this beer, but frankly I canít see why not.

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Pours a medium amber with a huge white head (not sure if the bottle was shook up a bit on this one or not). Aroma of floral hops and citrus. This was a very nice APA. One of the best Iíve had. Great taste and nicely balanced malts and a dry hop finish.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUL 26, 2005
(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with Eyedrinkale, thanks Mike!) While Iím not dancing like the three bears on the label, Iím fairly pleased with this pale ale. Itís pleasantly flavorful and nicely balanced, on one hand, mildly sweet with a decent grain/malt body, and on the other, moderately hoppy and bitter with abundant citrus flavor. Likewise, the balanced nose is pale malts and gentle hops, though it seems just a bit musty. Medium bodied and easy on the palate. Gold in color with a modest haze and a steady supply of carbonation bubbles rising slowly, and then topped by a small, but long lasting white head that leaves some patchy lacing on the glass, so the visuals are nice too. Overall, a pretty nice pale ale, but Iím thinking maybe the bears drank some Dragonís Milk first.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Corn grain aroma, light amber gold color, pretty simple sweet malty taste with a medium bitter finish. Somewhat light body for a pale ale. Just OK

Very respectable APA with all the right stuff: Good proportion of hop bitterness and flavor to malt profile. Great flavor, wonderful body. I think Iíll keep her.
