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!

Pours a deep amber orange with medium off-white head. Aroma of a nice balance of citrus and floral hops, grass, and yeast. Flavor matches with a nice bitterness, but a good balance of malt. I am not a pale ale fan, but I can definitely be up for more of this.

Pandemonium is the tenth studio album by Killing Joke released in June 1994 under the Zoo label. This album marked Killing Joke’s return after a four-year-long hiatus, the longest the band has taken since it was initially founded. says Wikipedia. Bottle thanks to DrSilverworm - my first thought as I sipped it was, "a hoppy wheat ale?" My second impression was, " vinous notes?" and my standing impression is, " I wish this time stamp was readable since it might make a difference on this style of beer." Not getting much in the bitter department even for 36 IBUs.

330ml bottle at home. Golden orange color with off white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, hoppy, citrusy fruity. Taste is sweet and bitter, malty caramel again, more hoppy than the aroma, citrusy fruity, floral. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a mostly transparent pale burnt orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of bitter hops and bittersweet malt. Tastes like it smells with a touch of fruit and a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad.

lukedarock (183) - Howell, Michigan, USA - NOV 22, 2014
For not being much of a looker and not much of a smell this beer sure packs a punch in the pale ale taste along with a good abv that is extinguished by the watery mouth feel this beer isn’t bad

hangunder (275) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2014
Smells decent but not that complex, some pine, sweet malt and biscuit in the nose. Looks nice, hazy effervescent golden with a thick white head. Tastes alright, upfront more sweet malt and a hint of citrus/pine although muted, finishes sweet malt and a bit of muted citrus. Medium bodied and average carbonation. Unremarkable pale ale.

TheBear11D (284) - Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2014
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 (1092) - 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 (825) - 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 (481) - 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..
