3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 I have been curious about this one for a while now. Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a chestnut color with a large tan head. The aroma is sour malts with a vaguely vegetal undertone and mild floral hops. The flavor is sweet malts with a bit of grapefruity hops. The body is moderately thick. The hops while noticeable are rather subdued. This one really reminds me more of an English style pale ale rather than an American pale ale.

All this flavor from a can, who knew!?! Decent, these guys can turnaround some pretty decent pale ales. Great mouthfeel, great flavors, nice musky hoppiness from the cascade. Impressive.

What a beer. And from a can! I had low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. Good hop aromas. Good malty mouth coating.

another fine beer form oskar! and your right...OUT OF A CAN! this is a nice hoppy cascade example of a pale ale. pours clear orange brown with a tan head nose of citrus and flowery hops. once again i was completely surprised to see the abv so high. tastes around 4-5. not that’s its thin but it has no warmth at all, not that it should at these numbers but you dont get the presence of alcohol in the least. a good everyday pale ale, that you could pack in your backpack and go for a hike with out the heavyness of a bottle. good shit!

(Can) Pours a lightly cloudy orange body with a moderate creamy off-white head. Aroma is bursting with orange and grapefruit, along with rich malts. The flavor has a nice of breadiness and hops with a bitter finish. Not your typical APA, or canned beer.

Can. Pours a deep red with a very nice tannish head. Fruit and flowers on the nose. Quite hoppy without being overbearing as well as a creaminess which resulted in a smoothness.

Can’t help but be biased towards the can. But very very good. The hops seem really fresh. Same price as other stuff in bottles at my store. Hmm...

Can! Cloudy brown-orange with a small cream colored head that dissipates quickly. Aromas are dominated by hops which smells wonderful. The tastes are just the same -- lots of hops with a creamy feel. I don’t know if I had it too cold, but the aftertaste was weird in the back of my mouth -- kind of soap suds and water with too much chlorine in it. Other than that slight bump in the road for me -- it is enjoyable. Good price for a six pack too!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber with a fluffy, creamy beige head. Subtle aroma of creamy, caramelly and grainy malt and mild lemon zest and grapefruit hop oils. The caramel, grain, breadiness and and light cookie elements tend to be a bit more dominate. The soft citrus, grass and light perfume aromas seem to balance and intrigue, as opposed to bullying their way to the forefront. The body is relatively moderate, a little light and easy drinking with molderate to active carbonation. The flavor has a nice balance of sweet malt and mild hop character. The hops don’t bring a lot of bitterness, but add more of a light ting that keeps the malt from becoming too dominate. The layered malt is fairly robust for the style, but isn’t extremely complex. All told, this seems to be a great drinking beer with loads of flavor and easy manuverability (see: cans). If I could get this locally, I might drink it pretty often.

Pour is nice copper amber with a big nice off white head...smell is pine and soap with some hints of grapefruit citrus...I hope it tastes as hoppy as it smells...taste is lightly hoppy up front with some nice balance from sweet malty flavors...hops build into a medium bitter finish...good...
