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

Fine brew with clear amber color and floral hop aroma. Finishes with medium bitterness. I wonder why this is higher ABV than their IPA, Mad Hatter!?!

All-Michigan Cascade hops. Pours a slightly hazy darker golden to orange with a fairly sizable off-white to khaki head that settles slowly and leaves little bits of soapy lace all over. Nose is a curious blend of perfumey floral notes, almost some lilac or pollen, some pronounced dusty hay, biscuit dough notes, a touch of citrus pith, some spice. A light honey sweetness is overshadowed by a pronounced bitterness and almost a touch of salt. Medium bodied, creamy, softer carb, with a long strange bitter finish. Somehow this works in spite of itself. Itís not especially refreshing or citrus/pine bright, and there isnít a whole lot of sweetness, but as just kind of a dusty hearty brew itís pretty decent. Definitely worth a try, but for me itís probably not one Iíll revisit in lieu of such great other choices for hop-themed beers.

Pour from a 12 oz bott.e Clear amber brew with smallish off white head. Aroma is nutty, spicy, with floral / grassy hops. Taste is light sweet malts at the start with a spicey, grassy and slightly bitter finish. A little earth brings it all home. A really fine APA.

12 oz bottle pours a clear orange amber with one-finger white head that lasts and leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is mostly citrus (orange, lemon, grapefruit) with sweet caramel for balance and a little grass. Taste is slightly bitter with sweetness in the middle. Body is light to medium with average carbonation and a crisp, clean mouthfeel. Iím glad I picked up a 4-pack of this easily drinkable APA

Bottle, the label was different from what is shown on RateBeer, this APA had a clear orange-copper pour (there was some sediment particles floating around) and made a one finger head of off-white bubbles that receded to a sticky ring and sparse cover, the glass had a center stream of medium flowing bubbles, this beer left spots and finger of lacing on the sides of the glass, there was no sediment in the bottle, this drink had aromas of toasted malt, citrus hops, light orange fruit, faint caramel, malt and fruit sweetness, it had flavors of toasted malt, caramel, citrus and light pine hops, faint bread and fruit, the finish had a less than medium to medium hop bitterness with a little malt following, malt and hops were pretty balanced, the mouth feel was light and it was a little creamy on the tongue with average to lively carbonation, a nice APA.

Pailhead (6026) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle: Iím shocked I didnít rate this back in the day. The aroma consists of light-moderate caramel, citrus, some sweeter fruits, and a touch of grass. It pours a transparent amber with a two finger white head that has excellent retention. Thereís some nice webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderately fruity with some faint caramel in the background. The finish has light-moderate citrus, light grapefruit, with a hint of grass. Itís light-medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall...a really solid maltier Pale Ale. I could see drinking quite of few of these in the summer.

I was pleasantly surprised with this one! Foggy tan color with a thick head, lots of lace and a nice sweet hoppy aroma. Mildly sweet and hoppy with a pleasant bitter mouthfeel. Not too bitter, blended very well with the rest of the flavor. Finish is hoppy, slightly bitter and dry. A great Pale Ale!

12oz bottle. Aroma: Sweet caramel, bready malt, chocolate, citrus, and light spicy hops. Appearance: Amber in color and lightly hazed. Light bone head was full and frothy with good retention. Nice lacing. Flavor: Sweet maltiness with notes of caramel, chocolate, bread dough. Light hop levels for an APA. Citrus, spice, light earthiness. Moderate bitterness. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: I was surprised by the maltiness of this one. The chocolate flavor really jumped out some times. Some light oxidation was coming through as well.
