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.

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.

Orange color, long lasting (but small) head. Citrusy scent. Much, much more balanced than I'd expected. The hops and the malt match up beautifully, making this an easy drinking beer. Nice creamy feel to it too.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2007 (hand pump at Toronado in SF) Hazy gold. Good head for a hand pump. Fruity and hops flavor. Slightly sweet finish. (bottle at Pizzaria Paradiso in DC) similar; nice balance of hops and malt; nearly the perfect beer with pizza

blankboy (6046) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2005 Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Nice aroma but a little mild. Pours beautifully, nicely carbonated, great colour. Didn’t have the problem of too much foam like some of the other posters mentioned. I was quite pleasantly surprised with this beer, nice and hoppy. Loved it, another great American Pale Ale. I hope to get more in the future.

the beers that speakeasy put out are quite good and the pale ale is no exception. i used ot buy my homebrew ingred from one of the founders back in the day when i lived i san francisco. more hoppy then you would think this one and a dsitinct citrus spice. with a full bodied palate in bloom. pushing towards an ipa and as strong as many.

From a painted labeled 12oz. long neck brown bottle a short blurb about the pale ale on the back label, no bottled/freshness date I could find. Made a good appearance, poured a clear amber hued copper with a pale beige foamy head that settled into a thin foamy lacing, good carbonation. Had a clean nose overall, caramel and grainy malty with a faint piney hoppiness. A crisp, smooth medium bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. Piney and grassy hop taste upfront, a buttery and sweet grainy maltiness and a crisp, dry toasted grainy finish with a fresh, raw grassy hoppiness lingering in the palate, delicious tasting. An interesting APA from Speakeasy, the more beers I have from this brewery, the more I’m impressed.

Had this one bottled in Rockford, Illinois. Your standard APA, not quite hoppy enough, but well balanced and drinkable. Deep yellow pour with a nice white head, aroma of hops, apples and roses, with notes of hops dissipating to a sweetness unusual in pales. Not bad.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2009
10/23/08 On draught at the Pied Piper, Seattle, Wa. Aroma is slightly pnw hop forward, caramel sweet, with great balance. Appearance is clear gold with a medium maintained white head . Flavor is very well balanced and somewhat blended between floral & moderate bittering characteristics, but flora forward. Mouthfeel is medium/low bodied with a medium/high carb texture. Overall, simple in it’s presentation, but the balancing makes this above average.
