COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American style pale ale, this brew is hopped four times using plentiful quantities of Cascade and Columbus hops. The flavor is balanced by a subtle maltiness obtained from five varieties of malted barley and a slight fruitiness, to produce a classic beer in the style of the Pacific Northwest. A clean crisp ale with distinctive hop aroma.

This beer was infected. They need to watch sanitization.

In honesty this one most of been infected...so take it for what it's worth. Foggy orange color. Super tart and green apple. Little to no hop distinction. Maybe I'll try and rate some other time. Of course, maybe not.

Aurelius (4371) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2014
Snowy white head on a foggy, light oaken beer. Squat twistoff 12oz bottle with a label that looks like an altar scene from Beneath the Planet of the Apes. Chimp on the cap. Pickle-y, apricot malt and thoroughly-brewed hop aroma. Biscuity, golden raisins, not aggressively bitter, a little lemon zip. Definitely wouldn’t be confused with IPA. Medium mouthfeel, brushy carbonation. Pretty refeshing, a little on the bland side, a good picnic beer. Thanks to PorterPounder for schlepping this back for me from Georgia.

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - APR 14, 2014
UPDATED: APR 23, 2014 12 oz bottle dated 2014 and delivered by the distributor yesterday. Durable bone-colored head over an amber body. Fruity aroma with an off-note. Likewise, the flavor, though modestly pleasing, is rather odd with a mildly tart note of lemons and unripe apricots. O: strongly suspect infected bottle. Will revisit with another. Seems a bit better but stil wierd, with a surprising and unmistakable tartness. ---- revisited with a fresh 12 oz bottle date notched Feb. 2014 on 23 April 2014. Ratings remain appropriate as is.

PorterPounder (5704) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2014
Albany, Ga. - Warehouse Package Store - 12 oz bottle. Hazy medium gold pour, pillowy, snow white head with nice lacing. Aroma is sour and funky and has just a hint of vinegar. Solid flavor with some doughy notes, a hint of peach, some light citrus bitterness. Thickish mouthfeel. Does in a pinch.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club bearing the name "Nimbus Pale Ale" tasted on October 25, 2013. Slightly cloudy medium amber color, sweet citrus/piney nose with fruit notes as well, good bittersweet flavor with orange and other citrus elements. Nice, sessionable brew.

Lubiere (10453) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
A blonde ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light grassy hops, OK. In mouth, a smooth biscuit malt with grassy and lightly floral hops, OK. On tap at brewery.

Draft at brewery 11/13/13-Pours amberish with a decent head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew was not bad bud was lacking something that I couldn’t put my finger on.
