JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Draft at the Safeco Field brewpub. Dark amber color with a moderate, slightly creamy head. Bit of malt and light caramel nose. Simple flavors with a some caramel, lightly toasted malt and a bit of green floral hops. A simple ale to go this the typical bar food.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2009
On tap at the PDX Green Dragon. Pours golden orange with a small white head. Pretty malty throughout, bready and soft caramel. Palate was a bit watery and finished bland. Overall just not enough hops to stand up against the pale ales in the area.

On tap from Pyramid, obviously. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but the nitro flattens out what could otherwise be a promising pale ale.

~Pours a light copper with thick creamy white head. ~Mild malt and hop scent. ~Taste is dulled out by creamy nitrogen pour. Light malts and hops again with taste. ~Creamy feel, quick finish. ~The bartender said that this is a nitro version of Mactarnahan’s Amber Ale. Although it does look good, I think they ruined a really good brew by using nitrogen on this one. Doesn’t mix well.

Braudog (5576) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2008
1/2 pint on nitro at Barclay’s in Oakland. Solid cream top over an amber-colored, clear brew. Nutty buddy! Milky caramel. Doesn’t lend itself well to the nitro delivery, IMHO. (#3416, 4/12/2008)

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2007 Tasted at Pyramid’s Berkeley brewpub as a taster set w/5 other beers. Beautiful in the glass. Darker than most pale ales, with a thick foamy head. Appeared more like a dark lager or British strong ale. Very floral, both in flavor and odor. What surprised me, though, was the overwhelming & unappealing wateriness in the middle third; flavor simply dissipated! Floral hop ending helped save the beer. I am not sure why this is called a pale ale.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 19, 2007
On tap at MacTarnahan’s tap room--Poured a cascading creamy tawny-golden nitro body with a fluffy ice cream head. Mouth feel was rich and desert-like. Light and very quaffable. Nose of spicy and floral hops. Slightly metallic but not so much that it hindered the overall impression of this brew. Clean and pleasant silken finish.

Draft at the Safeco Field brewpub. Pours light coppery amber with densely moussy but very thin off-white head. Plenty of lace. Sour sweaty nose, some CO2 and yeast there. Watery, lightly fizzy attack. Bitter toast and light aluminum notes. Fairly clean finish.
