COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Payette Pale Ale is a beer made for the mountain, the river and the local pub. Brewed as an American Pale Ale that is heavy on the hops, the Pale comes through with a touch of caramel sweetness to balance out the hop bitterness. Floral notes dominate the nose, with grapefruit and orange aromas present in the background. After a long day shredding on the mountain or floating the river, kick back and enjoy this fully flavored session beer.

Pours a nice darker amber color with white head. Pine, grapefruit, and caramel malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little floral hop note.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Hazy tan. The aroma has a touch of diacetyl, light caramels. Earthy, sweetish, no real hop flavour. Tastes a bit yeasty, too.

Can: cloudy copper color with an off-white head. Aroma of pine, musty grass. Flavors of light juniper and dry rubber. Thin body and stuff aftertaste.

jdb288 (489) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Fresh can. Pours muddy orange, slight head. Aroma is floral, orange citrus, lavender. Taste is bitter hop, fishy (I know, odd description...but it is), some honey. Nothing stands out, no real balance.

BucannonXC5 (802) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Type: 12-oz. can Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass From: Whole Foods in Boise, Idaho Price: $8.99 for a mix and match variety 6-pack Purchased: Dec. 19, 2013 Consumed: Dec. 28, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured an amber orange hazy color with about four fingers of off-white frothy head. An above average amount of sporadic foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down. Smelled a pleasant whiff of floral hops up front. Also citrus hops - lemon zest, lime and faint grapefruit. Some grass hops, honey and light vomit late. The smell doesn’t hold as long as I’d hope. Tasted not as much as the smell as I would have thought. More like a pale ale here. Got slightly bitter floral hops, citrus hops - lemon and orange peel, and faint lime and grapefruit. Grassy, honey and wheaty. Medium-to-full body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Bitter finish. I really liked this beer. Just a very good pale ale.

Purchased from Albertsons in 12 oz cans. A bit flat. Not much body. A bit medicinal. Decent happiness, but needs more body to balance.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Can:   Darker amber, slight haze, large foamy sandy head, nice lacing.   Soft sweet citrus peel and powdery sugar aroma.   Smooth and citrusy sweet on the tongue, very much candied.   Low hop bitterness.   Sweeter example, and rather smooth.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   More of a hop bitterness and less sweet on the finish.   Still has a powdery sweet aspect tho.   Nice sweet start, hops come out on the backside.   Decent, but sometimes that powdery sweet aspect gets a little artificial.

On tap at the brewery. Rather dark, bitter, malty and robust for a pale. hefty, but good. I like pales a little lighter and crisper though.

Nice hoppy pale ale, dark golden in color with thick foamy head. Decent lacing, aroma is hops, slightly sour malt. Taste is hops, bread, malt with slightly metallic finish. Not bad at all.

Excellent Pale Ale, made more delicious by the proximity of the brewery and the freshness. Full flavored pale, with perhaps a stronger hop finish then most. Try it, you will not be disappointed.
