This version has slightly less alcohol, bitterness and slightly more color than the bottled version. The hop varieties and malts used are the same.

hmmmmmmm....i must finda a place that has this brew on the tap and bottles at the same time so i can figure out why this is a different beer i prefer the bottles....as they are much more portable

Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival. Deep golden, rich head. Grapefruity hop aroma. Drish and fairly light bodied with clean mouthfeel. Despite the wealth of Cascade hops it is still balanced. Straightforward, near simple, but also very enjoyable.

Wow, I always seemed to notice a difference on draft but I never thought there to be two versions. Draft has the same great american hop aromas of citrus, grapefruit and a touch of pine but seems to be a little weaker in the hop finish. All in all, not as good as bottled in my mind.

The hops are overwhelming in this undrinkable swill. A bit of bitters can be a good thing in a complex brew, but this is about as complex as an episode of Friends. I enjoy pale ales, but really now...

Draught. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Virtually identical to the bottle, or at least effectively so for rating purposes. I mean, hell, the two entries differ by 0.05. WOW!!! These really serve no point at all in being separate entries, but hey, I lost that battle. So here’s my free rating! Wheee!

Medium orange gold color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is floral hops and citrusy. Malts are more caramel-ish and slightly sweeter than the bottled version. Still has a really nice hops to malt balance. A touch smoother without the big hop bite of the bottled version. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter.

This rating here tend to lean toward comparisons between this and the bottled version so that’s where I’ll take it. The major difference flavorwise is this is a little lighter in bitterness. The nose is just about the same--fresh and citrusy. I think this might be slightly lighter bodied too but that might just be the bitterness playing tricks on me or variences in the poor affecting carbonation.

Copper color. Floral hops present. Very smooth flavor. Enjoyable. One of the best pale ales for a pseudo macro distributed beer.

Nice, I really enjoy this on tap version. It doesn’t differ too much, but it is smoother and less carbonated I feel than the bottle. Definitely better than the big three swill you usually see.

Tap at friend’s house. Clear light orange, white head. Fresh American hop aroma. Flavor has a nice balance between American hops and sweet malt. Medium body. Spicy hop finish. Very refreshing brew to say the least.
