Another "micro" that has the cult following...pours copper with a decent head that laces the whole glass...fruit then floral...small hint of sweetness followed by a nice coat of wool on the tongue...will definately order this at a restaurant that carries "exotics" over Shiner...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The SN Pale Ale pours a bubbly golden orange with a decent white head that has good retention and laces the glass.
Its aroma is malty biscuit with some metallic hops.
The taste is biscuity malts up front with some faint floral hops and then a fairly harsh bitter aftertaste. It is medium bodied with a sticky finish.
Overall, Iím not too impressed. I was expecting more fruity notes to balance the bitterness. I can respect what this beer has done for the microbrewery business, but Iíve never been able to get into it.

Bottled: Amber coloured. Clear. Light beige head. Lasting. Has a sweet and fruity aroma. Hops are definately present. Fresh and toasty flavour with hops and fruit notes. Is light bitter in the end. Nice and unharming beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ The Haunted Hamburger, Jerome, AZ. Golden to copper colored body, with a very creamy white head. Very fruity aroma, very dominated by cascade hops. Maltyness in the bakcground, then the flavor becomes fruity and at last a good cascade hop flavor, oh those pines and citruses. Its very drinkable and very addictable!

This beer is all about the hops. Very good light taste completely dominated by hops. If you want to know what they taste like try this beer. Very clean crisp beer though, i like it for a daily drinking beer.
