COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the style of the great ales of the Pacific Northwest, this complex combination of Pilsner and Caravienne malts and Apollo, Simcoe, Cascade and Amarillo hops make it a great session beer.

Tap. Well, I most of had the new recipe, because this beer was magnificent. Nice honey body with a lasting 1/2 inch head. Nose-good fresh clean hops. A great classic APA clean hoppy nose. Taste-my first impression is that this is a bit thin, but good. What it has, it does well with, if you know what I mean. The hops are in the background and upfront at the same time while the malt is balanced just right with the hops. The only NXNW beer that I ordered twice..

(Sample from February 23, 2007 Beer Club Meeting; on tap at NXNW in Austin on July 20, 2008) Semi-cloudy pale gold. Hard to target in on the aroma. Taste is just bitter/pale enough to raise the eyebrow but leaves no aftertaste. Thin, sweet… delicious.

Wonder as ever w/ brewpubs how this compares to the last batch. Enjoyed. Plenty hoppy, a bit grainy and the hops seem ?? Well, I'm glad they're there - just wondering what kind was used? While not my favorite pale ale, I don't see there being any lack of bittering. I just want to have another to see if I can tell more what is in there.

Growler. Pours with a rocky off white head over a clear gold body. Aroma is grass, hops, pine, pretzels and a slight fruitiness. Flavor is slightly astringent, biscuit, pretzels, and a bit of hoppiness on the back end. Nice bubbly mouthfeel.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 6, 2002
Slight woodiness and hoppiness in the flavor and finish. Perhaps served a few degrees too warm, and it seemed like it was off-balance, the maltiness was perhaps a bit too prominent. They really shouls hop this one more.

mmmbeer (1213) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Sampler at NXNW- very small off white head, cloudy hazen amber appearance, aroma of hops and, for some reason, light evergreen trees. Hits the mouth with a medium body, the malt is in near perfect balance with the hops, finish is good and strong. My favorite of the evening.

Andrew196 (1091) - Katy, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2002
I like this beer a lot actually. The hops were very flavorful and powerful but not overly bitter like many pale ales. Somewhat complex for a pale ale, sweet malt came out before the great finish.

MaltOMeal (1090) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2010
On tap at brewpub. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Nose is of orange rind. Taste is of citrus, especially oranges. Mouthfeel is bitter. A decent pale ale.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Draught. Aromas of light pine, peach, and light caramel. Clear amber-brown with a small head. Good bitterness but severely lacking in hop flavor or any malt background. Harsh and unbalanced. A boring pale ale.
