Golden color with nice off white head. The beer is politely hop forward. I don’t see a bottled date, but my guess is this bottle is extremely fresh. This is a very good beer. Very refreshing.

12 oz bottle; a thoughtful extra from a guy in Tulsa. Pours clear orange with a super foamy white head. Nose is citrus, honey and grass. Crisp with a bite; resiny then dry. Taste is bitter mandarin orange, lemon zest and green olive. Softens, fruitier as it warms. Would be great on cask.

Bottle thanks to Graeme. Pours a cloudy gold orange with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong wheat and bready malt. Medium mouth with strong wheat, bitter finish. Decent.

12oz bottle pours a orange/golden with a slight haze and a large off-white head. Fruity tropical aroma with sweet malt, simple. Taste of mildly fruity hops, light hop bitterness and bready malts. Simple and not unlike many other Pale Ales, good enough.

Good pale ale. Fresh nose. Bready, doughy, lightly toasted malt flavors. Snappy and spicy hop bitterness. Pleasant, herbal aromas. Malty and full up up front; bitter, mineral-like and dry in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp golden coloured body with a hint of a copper tint and a nice, two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of bright citrus and piney hops with a PNW flavour and a noticeable malt flavour coupled with some tropical fruits. Medium-bodied; Crisp bright flavours of the fruits and hops that lace well with the malt and even shows a touch of sugar at the end. Aftertaste shows a very well-balanced beer with noticeable but not overwhelming hops and a smooth malt feel. Overall, a nice APA that shows well, but isn’t amazing nor should go out of the way to sample! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Spirits N More in Norman, Oklahoma a few minutes before drinking it while at a tailgate party in Norman, Oklahoma on 13-September-2014 for US$1,99.

Soonerchamps sent me this as part of a Local Beer Swap. Thanks Matt! Pours a murky amber with some thin, creamy, slightly off white head. Nose is solid, malt, orange, mild lemon peel, hints of herbs, cracker, some dried apple. Flavor follows along, well balanced between crackery/gristy malt, orange and mild pine, some dried apple, a little mild caramel. Balanced finish. Reminded me so much of DC Brau The Public. Just a solid, local, APA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Golden hue with thick creamy white head that lingered nicely. Aroma is mango, tangerine, melon, papaya, pineapple, Dragonfruit, slight grass. Mouthfeel is wonderful with medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness initially with a great hop bitterness in the following and a clean finish. Overall this is a fantastic pale ale!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle into snifter, cloudy gold, light head, soft nose. Good body and subtle flavor but not watery at all. Quite smooth and well balanced, wish Prairie made more brews like this instead of focusing on sours, saisons, and farmhouse so much.

Had this at a share with friends, reviewed from notes: pours a clear golden with fizzy white head. Straw, citrus, and some malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a raw wheat note.
