COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Untouchable does justice to the American Pale Ale, enforcing a strict balance of arresting hop flavor and a smooth maltiness that's just undercover.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of toasted malts, slight caramel, and a tiny bit of hops. Poured amber/orange in color with a small, creamy, off-white head that lasted throughout. Hazy. Lightly sparkling. Many tiny particles throughout. Very good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malts, caramel, toasting, and a hint of hops. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Toasted malt and light caramel finish is lightly dry. Bland.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Bottle. Pours an orange golden body with a white head. Grainy cereal notes, light dried fruit, hints of pine and citrus. Thin and simple.

BeerBunker (709) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2009 12oz bottle. Pours golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is of hops, malt, and citrus. Taste starts off with an earthy hop bite. It also has lots of citrus and spice. Backbone of bready malt evens the beer out. Lingering taste of earthy hops and dirt. Mouthfeel is light and carbonated. Nothing too special about this beer. It drinks easy, but it’s nothing special.

Thanks B, for the brew.. Upon prying the cap off this sucker foamed out all over the table...then when I dumped it into my glass it exploded like champaign. Left behind a deep bubbly off-white cap that had great retension until the bottom of the glass. A bit of messy lacing. Brew is a cloudy, mucky orangish colour and filled with tons of debris. The aroma is plentiful but uninspiring. Less than fragrant, there is some grapefruit and possibly tangerine but the large presence of something similar to what you would get when you shake a tin of Ice Tea crystals, tear off the lid and then huff in the cloud of powder. There is also a thick sweetness. Don’t forget instant memories of vodka. Somewhere in here ’earthy’ crossed my mind. Taste is bland, lemony, pine, the hops remind me of vodka and the malts are almost nonexistant. Has a pop-like feel with a so-so swish. I really dislike this particular bitterness. The worst West Coast pale I’ve ever had.

Cirrhosis (1202) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2009
"Brew appears to be copper with a yellowy haze a large white cap was produced and had terrific retention. Aroma is mild consisting of slightly bitter malts, some sour candies and citrusy hops. Flavour is very metallic, hops are noticeable and they remind of vegetable soup that’s weird. The malts are very mild and have a very earthy quality to them. Beer is light bodied and slightly over carbonated. After taste is clean and mainly containing metalicy malts this brew is very drinkable and taste ok, but its not wowing me. "

HighWine (951) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Bottle. Pretty golden color with a bright white head that thins but never disappears. Pleasant citrus and floral hop nose. Great malt/hop balance. Several flavors roll over the palate. First is a honey sweetness, then malt, a blast of floral hops, then cereal/bread malt, and a mild bitterness. Not at all heavy but a good mouthfeel. Really excellent.

unclemattie (4166) - Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2009
12oz bottle. Hazy orange, white head. Nice aroma of hops. Clean malt character. Nice bite of hops. More hops than most IPAs. Pretty damn good.

zach8270 (3439) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2009
(bottle - 12 oz) Amber pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is light and hoppy with some malt and citrus balance. Flavor is malty and lightly sweet at the beginning with a very light hop presence. Finishes clean with a touch of bitterness and citrus. Smooth and easy drinking.

nickd717 (3480) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 25, 2009
On tap at Speakeasy. Amber color with an off-white head and solid lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, and mild hops. Flavor is malty with some caramel, toffee, and some hops on the finish, but nowhere near as hoppy as their IPAs. Smooth palate, medium body. Drinkable but nothing too exciting.

marcus (6438) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 15, 2009
This amber ale poured with a decent off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a clean pale malt flavor that is a bit fruity, and a nice balance of hop bitterness. A good session beer.
