5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2004
Bottle pours light amber, large pancake batter like head, very light carbonation, with rather sticky lacing.   Light hop notes on the nose, also seems like American wheat malt for some reason.   Slight floral tinge as well.   Smooth this is, slight hop bitterness at the very front but quickly balancing out with a sweet maltiness that drives by.   Unfortunately it finishes rather quickly, without much trace of flavor.     Looks fantastic, tastes decent, but finishes too abruptly.   Decent body and mouthfeel.   A bit overly malty for an EPA, but thats fine in my book.   Thanks goes out to MarkR for the trade!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 15, 2004
Pellucid bronze with off-white creamy head. The aroma has notes of diactly & some malts & alcohol. The flavor is mild & mostly sweet. Very malty, almost no hoppiness or bitterness. English pale ale? Finishes with diactyl. blah. thanks MarkR!

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2004
Dark amber, almost mahogany. Light head and sparse lacing. Light citrus hops and malty aroma. Flavor consists of more malts than hops. Nothing exciting really.

jgb9348 (5325) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2004
Copper/Amber coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of mild english hops with some malt coming through. Medium-bodied; Nutty flavour with some english hops and little else. Aftertaste mild and typical of a bitter english pale. Overall, a decent epa, but not Schlafly's best at all! I got this twelve ounce bottle from Phil (haddon90) in Knoxville, Tennessee...thanks again Phil!

3fourths (8888) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Bright red/copper and clear. No head poured from the bar. Pale malt flavor, stale paper and syrup. Not much flavor... bland and typical. Only a slightly noticable hop presence in the flavor.

haddon90 (1588) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - FEB 20, 2004
An average Pale Ale. Nice copper color with a slim white head. Not much of a hoppy aroma, kind of faint but decent I suppose. Weak hoppy flavor. I wish they had a little more hops, but still a fairly decent Pale Ale. Nothing to write home about.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2004
(draught at Bottleworks) Light copper. Very little head but nice lace. Mild hops aroma. Mild hops flavor. An English style PA--they also make an American PA that is a fair bit hoppier.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2003
Named after Phylis Schlafly, I'm sure... Pours a light honey color with a decent head, but no lace at all. The scent is very floral, though, just as hoppy smelling as a PA should be. It's funny how a good PA smells at least as hoppy as an IPA. Taste doesn't quite measure up to a SNPA or Deschutes, but it's still pretty good. Definate floral hop presence but not much malt for balance. Palate is average for the style; smooth and creamy but nothing special. Overall it's pretty good, but I think I'm spoiled on the PNW offerings. This was complements of my buddy, MRJ...RJM...MJR...whatever. Next thing you know he'll be going by some "unpronouncable symbol."

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - DEC 7, 2003
Pours a sparkling medium copper. the average white creamy head is mostly lasting with good lacing. The nose is fresh and subtle and reminds me of a Czech Pils. Hints of flowers and spicyness and sweet toasted cereal. The toasty flavor though balanced with a slightly nutty finish really lacks the flair that I would expect from a Pale Ale. Not much excitement or character here. The light to medium palate is creamy and lively with a clean feel to the finish. Though this is a fair brew, for the style it is very meek. I highly anticipated offerings from St. Louis brewery after some of the raves about the Winter ESB on this website, so beamed some in off the internet at premium expense. I hope the Oatmeal Stout lives up to my expectations, because this REALLY didn't.

A nice, English-style pale ale. I was fortunate to try this while I was in St. Louis. I just wish I was able to sample more beers from this brewery.
