COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Behold the bitter hysteria
Pandemonium Pale Ale is a coppered-colored American Pale Ale that lends its hue to hearty two-row malts and hand selected specialty grains. Glacier hops balance the malt character, resulting in bountiful hoppy flavors and earthy aromas. Behold the bitter hysteria!

Nice clean taste. Got a lot of caramel which in this case takes away from the drinkability I think. Overall pretty good though.

The Pandemonium pours a mostly cloudy yellowish orange with a thick beige head that lasts a good long while. The aroma is rather grainy. The flavor is wheat and earthy bitterness. Overall this is a decent beer.

574deadzone (1057) - North Central, Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Pours a glowing, hazy orange with a fair off-white head that settles to a thin ring and leaves some soapy spots of lace. Nose involves sourdough, funky earth and spice along with some floral notes. Lightly sweet, quite bitter. Medium bodied, creamy, somewhat oily, with a toasty and drying finish. Pretty decent, perhaps would have enjoyed some more aromatics, but a good solid bitter/pale.

ryecatcher (804) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2014
12 oz bottle from Lopez, who made a trip to the brewery and was kind enough to think of me (thanks brutha!) Pours a burnt-orangey gold, medium whitish head with nice retention and lacing. Nose is caramelly and candied oranges, biscuity malts, some dried grass, black pepper. Mouth is medium bodied, lightly sweet caramel malts and an easy bitterness on the intro, orange peels, some crackers, touch of soapy bitterness at finish. Nothing mind-blowing but certainly drinkable.

9/8/2014. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Caramel, hops and malty aromas. Good bitterness, nice malt forward brew, but nothing to really remember.

SHANER4 (480) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle - poured hazy amber color with dmall head. Aroma - biscuity malt and cereal grains. Taste - not much going on here. I really like Short’s, but this beer is average at best. Palate is thin and finish is stale and blah. Overall - tastes more like an amber ale. Probably a good beer if you’re new to the craft beer scene but not enough flavor for me......boring..

czar (4504) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
pours almost cloudy golden greyish with a small off-white head, little retention and lacing. spicy and lightly grainy fruity maltiness, muited citrus and pine, hint of garbage, some soft earthy notes - almost englishy. moderately low carbonation, light body - oily, balanced, assertive yet not offensive spicy-citrusy-piney finish. nice american-english pale ale.

kaser (2791) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2014
I think I let this sit too long. Smells skunked and tastes the same. Cloudy orange pour from 12 oz bottle at home. Musty basement taste. I hope I rate this again fresh

A pretty decent pale ale. Orangish yellow appearance, grapefruit tinge to the flavor but with a decent caramel balance.

tectactoe (2027) - Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Tap: Opaque, golden-amber with a decent sized, soapy white head. Aroma is very floral & earthy hops, bitterness apparent to the nostrils. Hop oil, orange & pineapple rind, grapefruit pith, just a hint of toasty malt. Bitterness & floral hops on the palate front & center. Citrus peel, orange rind, & bitter grapefruit come alive & lead into a toasted bread malt profile, just a mild hint of sweetness in the finish. Quite floral & bitter for just a pale ale, but a decent brew overall.

Tasted on tap at Short’s. It poured a clear, light amber hue with an off white head and streaky lacing. A malty aroma with a sneaky bitter taste.
