A well-defined hop flavor and aroma distinguish this classic beer. American-Style Pale Ales are amongst this country's most distinctive brews. Few beer drinkers can pass up the flowery, slightly dry yet full-bodied flavor of this popular beer. Four separate additions of British hop varieties mingle in the brew kettle to create itís intriguing and assertive hoppiness, and the age-old "dry-hopping" method using our own locally grown hops during fermentation tops Pearl Street Pale Ale off with spicy and floral hop aromatics. Silver Medal Winner at the World Beer Championship, 2003.

Out to brunch with family and all my aunts and uncles were getting bloody maryís and pressured me into it and the odd thing about getting a bloody mary in this part of world is it automatically comes with a chaser. so opted for this La Crosse local. fine orange pour. nose is earthy hops. tastes bready, earthy, malty, and some orange zest. medium carbonated. fine straight up pale ale.

Not too impressed with this. Had it in a bottle and poured into glass. Decent color and aroma but the hops bitterness didnít do it for me

Bottle poured a clear tarnished gold with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of bread, citrus, light dankness and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, earthiness and light pine with a smooth lingering earthy finish.

12 ounce bottle. A white head sits atop a rich yellow glowing body. A subtle but fresh hoppy aroma can be noticed from across the table. The flavor is mildly hoppy and unlike so many pale ales out there, this ones got a light maltiness backing up the hops but not so much that it’s filling. Great Wisconsin beer love it.

Draft. From notes. Herbal and citrus hops with bready and caramel malts. Not too shabby.

2 oz. pour, on tap at the breweryís taproom, as part of an 8-beer flight. Consumed on 5-14-14. Nice, floral, piney aroma features lemon, citrus, and grapefruit scents. Quite enjoyable smell. Pours gold, on the pale side. Light effervescence. Beige head. Produces good, extensive lacing. Nice, light, piney flavor features citrus and orange elements. Surprisingly good malt backbone, especially for the style. Subtle flavors. Light to medium body. Soft in the palate. Overall, a darn good pale ale, and, in my opinion, an underrated one by the ratings on this site.

beerbaaron (1978) - Arizona, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Pours clear(until poured the rest of the bottle) turning opaque, orange amber. Small soapy white head. Updated recipe or maybe a bit of an old bottle? Aroma has a good amount of breadiness, light citrus/orange, lemon, light grass, a little something dank. The more I smelled it the more I didnít like it. Flavor is light bready, grass, flowers, light citrus/lemon. Flavor improved about halfway through for me. Higher end of light body. Moderate grassy eqrthy bitterness. Light sweet. Mild dryness. Crisp. Not that easy drinking.. Not offensive but not that interesting. Ok.

A white head sits atop a rich yellow glowing body. A subtle but fresh hoppy aroma can be noticed from across the table. The flavor is mildly hoppy and unlike so many pale ales out there, this ones got a light maltiness backing up the hops but not so much that itís filling. Like rings on a tree, the rings of lace left inside my glass tell me how many sips it took me to get to the bottom
