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, “Paleooza” is an old favorite and an early original in our portfolio of great beers! 14°

I had this a few weeks ago and don’t remember too much about it other than that I enjoyed it.

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.

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.

Pale cloudy yellow beer with a small white head. Smells hoppy and malty, sweet, peaches. Tastes similar but the maltyness really comes out a bit more so its really well balanced. The bitterness lingers- I wish some of the other flavours lingered along with the bitterness though. A great pale ale!

12oz bottle (thanks to Ogglethorp) poured a slightly hazed amber/orange color with a nice off white head. Aromas of sweet caramel malts and some slightly oxidized citrus hops. The taste had a big amount of caramel to it and not much in the way of hop bitterness. More of a flavor hopped beer that a bitter beer. Overall I think this might be a better beer to get fresh off the tap instead of the bottle.

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. It’s not especially refreshing or citrus/pine bright, and there isn’t a whole lot of sweetness, but as just kind of a dusty hearty brew it’s pretty decent. Definitely worth a try, but for me it’s probably not one I’ll revisit in lieu of such great other choices for hop-themed beers.

Had it out of a bottle. It has a golden amber hue with a mild head and a citrus hop aroma. The taste is an okay blend of cascade hops and bitter aftertaste, but I have had better.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a light copper color with a small off white head. The nose is citrusy and fruity. The flavor is about the same with some apple and light bread notes. Even keeled balance between malt and hops, but somewhat uninspired. Still, a solid APA.

12 oz bottle pours a golden/orange color with a nice white head. Aromas of light hops, floral, citrus. Light bodied, refreshing.
