Wet Hop: "Much too weak of an offering to be poured on the beer engine, but alas it was. Ever so slight citrus and pine with only a hint of bitterness in the weak watery finish. Booooring..."

Its baaaack!!!! And apparently improved. Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours light amber with a creamy white head. Aroma seems floral/citrus. Med body. It has a hop bite. Flavor is floral/citrus over caramel. that goes a bit toffee with time. Malt not so roasty as some APAs, which seems to be a good thing here. Nice.

~Pours a light golden color with small white head. ~Light hoppy scent with mild malts. ~More malty in flavor than hoppy. i dont care for the balance. ~Crisp feel, quick finish. ~Pretty weak for a pale ale. Hope are hardly recognizable.

This pale ale poured with a foamy white head. The flavor was flat and watery, with a slightly bitter finish.

who puts a pale ale on nitro, weak hop aroma, clear pale orange, light berry hoppiness, some nice maltiness, no bitterness at all, using little to no hops doesn't exactly make it an english style

Little aroma. The flowery hop flavor peaks out at you, but succumbs quickly. Average American Pale Ale at best.

(Tasting notes from Fall 2000): OK bitterness. Not well rounded and not much body.
