COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This great American Pale Ale is hand-crafted with a natural blend of the finest barley malt, Munich, Carapils and Crystal specialty malts, Cascade and Williamette hops and pure water. The taste is clean and complex, with a fruit accent and a dry, hoppy finish.

Great little beer, found it by chance in B&M for 5.4% it is not strong and has a pleasant taste, defiantly a beer I would get again. I tried the bottle version ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours amber with a decent head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is not too shabby.

We had this beer at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in Biloxi, MS. "Oh! Too buggy." We did not like this one. Might as well spray bug spray in your mouth.

Mediocre beer from a mediocre brewery. Nothing particularly bad about this beer. It has a middle-of-the-road quality to its malt presence and grassy hops. Nothing exceptional either. Would probably be a good session beer, but there are better ones...

a below average pale ale, but it is drinkable. nothing worth seeking out, but if your in the north-woods and hit a gas station that for some reason doesn’t carry anything by New Glarus, pick it up. Not awful.

12 oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours copper in colour, pretty good white head. Nicely balanced caramel malt and resiny hops. Good PA.

JStax (2997) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Poured into an english pint glass. Appearance is a hazy copper with a frothy, creme head of foam that dissipates at a normal rate and leaves thick lacing. Aroma is like a musty grapefruit that has been rubbed with hops. The smell isn’t overbearing, just pleasantly present. Taste is less than stellar, faint hop presence with a grapefruit peel taste in the forefront that fades to a yeasty backbone. Earthy with a touch of fruitiness. I would say this one is okay at best.

Aromanice proper west coast hop profile. Hints of pine , green leaf , hint of alcohol and caramel.
Appearance very good clarity , crystal amber with medium white top.
Flavor and Palate : medium bodied , amber malts with hint of caramel. Nice straight clean hop profile. Neat brew.
