3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

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

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 didn’t 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 it’s 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

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from Sonoma Cellars in Delevan. Pours a light amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is bready, fruity, some pine hops. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is malty, bread, a little nutty, fruity, a touch of citrus, some pine bitterness, with a light, bitter finish. An ok pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s 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.

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