American the Pale (and Beautiful). Amber wave of grain, from Colorado, and plenty or aromatic hops went into this American Pale Ale. A light, hoppy and beautifully balanced beer, this one may inspire you (like Katherine Lee Bates standing atop our mountain) to break out in song.

A solid pale ale. Nice hop flavor but a smooth refreashing finish. A good pale ale. Yep.

RSRIZZO (1960) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Color is a deep golden brown with good carbonation and a small tight head. Aroma of roasted grain and a hint of citrus hops. It has a lighter medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor of grain, touch of caramel then some spice and citrus. After taste is more citrus and a light bitterness. Overall its a nice well rounded Pale Ale.

drjay44 (3437) - Salida, Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Taster at Brewers Rendezvous. Pours a thin white head, over a hazy gold (SRM 5) body.........nose is light pine, citrus peel......taste is pine, citrus, finishing with a mild bitterness......mouth feel light of medium, carbonation low. This is a pleasant, nicely balanced beer, but is on the light side for an APA. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6
