On draught. Too sweet for me, lots of caramel and malt, some hops. Almost like a summer ale, not as bitter as the pales I like. Tan creamy head.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is great stuff. I wish I could get some more of this, as an everyday type drinking pale ale. A very pleasing hoppiness pervades throughout, but not overpowering, just enough citrus and pleasing floral aromas. Maltiness is a sweet bit of caramel, but overall amazingly well balanced.

On tap at the brewpub, 4/13/06: Golden copper. Pleasantly hoppy, but not over the top. Nice little American pale ale, but it did have a bit of an off wood-chip flavor.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught - Bland and boring beer, typical American ale. Bitter hop finish is noit counterbalanced by anything else. Not too many hops, they are just annoying.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber appearance. Nice even Cascade hop aroma. Very frothy and carbonated. Thick, not very
exciting, but still some sweet subtle hop flavor on top of a big wheat/bread malt presence.
