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.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2005 Rerate: Good, upon multiple visits. Recalibration is necessary in the palate and appearance scores. Original: At the Brick in DC. Great and hoppy, but not quite unidimensional. Aroma: some grapefruit. Flavor begins to get balanced after some settling in. Almost creamy -- nice palate. Speakeasy has a ’house character’, methinks.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - OCT 19, 2002
Honey colored. Nose has some citrus/floral characteristics.Creamy palate which I wasnt expecting but not not full bodied. Nice balance. Not a hop monster like Big Daddy.

ElGaucho (2229) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2003
Draught. Crisp and hoppy aroma, kind of like Pilsner Urquell in that regard, only hoppier. Small, white head; mostly diminishing. Clear yellow in color. Relatively hoppy flavor; kind of blah otherwise. Unspectacular. Still, a good session beer and not insulting. Great, bready finish with good hops.

Citrus, flower and yeast aromas. Nice amber color, low head. Fruity (citrus) and dry with some pineneedle., medium bodied. Aftertaste is rather mellow.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2003
The beer as it sets in my glass a translucent amber with a head the size of Texas, semi-creamy in texture and a beauteous light tan in color with the lace a thick and sticky blanket to cover the glass. Floral tones dominate this malt sweet nose, also crisp and fresh like a morning rain, start is sweet and rich in malt with the top moderate in body. The finish is mildly acidic, the hops delectable and spicy, clean and crisp aftertaste and a fine drinking beer from a favorite brewery, hope to be there in February to sample some of their fine beers on tap, been at least a lustrum

Wonderful looking orange color with a light creamy pillow head. Lots of citrus, and a light hop tang. Nice
