COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Pale Ale brewed with the finest crystal malts. Dry hopping with Cascade hops gives this beer a floral hoppy nose and distinct hop finish.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Pours copper and hazy with a creamy white head. Some floaties are present in the glass. Smells of grass, citrus, bread and surprisingly sharp for an APA. Taste is of lemons, pepper, floral, some grapefruit. Finish is sweet caramel with some peppery notes.

Ernest (6216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2003
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light amber. Aroma is moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin), lightly malty (cookie), with notes of lemon juice and solvent. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent.

Braudog (5741) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Misty orange with a big mushrooming head. The level of sediment leads me to believe this is a tad bit old. In fact, so does the drying sourness to the bite. I’d like to try this one fresh ... I sense the incredible sense of raw bread dough to this may not be a fair rating, but that’s what I got.

PorterPounder (5538) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2004
Has a murky dark golden appearance -not much of a head. Pleasant aroma, muted spruce, heavy on the malt accents. Flavor has some low level bitterness - not quite citrusy - more peach like.A little unbalanced - more malt than hops. Decent mouthfeel. Overall, a decent APA.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Didn’t have quite the bitter bite that I look for in an American pale. Nice murky, unfiltered reddish tone. Good bitter hop aroma. Good bitter finish.

Orange gold color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is malty, hoppy (citrus and pine) and a touch hoppy. A medium bodied pale ale. Malts are bready and sweet. Hops are citrus and grapefruit. Balance is OK, but the hops and malts don’t seem to mix well. The compete more than they complement. Still not a bad pale ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter

SLightly cloudy dark ornage colored body. The head is slightly yellowish and tan. The aroma has pine, menthol and some plastic. The taste is grapefruit and some pine with a nice caramel touch in the back of the throat. This has enough character and body to keep it interesting.

Pailhead (4806) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2005
Bottle: Very malty with tons of caramel, light cookie, light hop aroma. Pours a dark transparent amber with a white head that has a yellow tinge to it. Decent retention. Moderate caramel flavor with a little citrus and light hop finish. The hop flavor just seems a little off to me.

badgerben (4399) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 23, 2005
Gold color with a medium head. Dusty hop aroma. Very earthy tones in the flavor which I find unusual for a Pale Ale. The standard bitterness is the finish. Not bad at all.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2005 One of the most highly malted Pale Ales I have ever smelled or tasted. The aroma is like bread and floral hops. The appearance is a hazy brownish golden and there are small precipitants in it as well. The flavor has a deep rich malt to match the aroma but unfortunately has an astringent bitterness and some saltiness to go along with it. The aftertaste has a little toasty and nutty flavors to add to the mix. I want this to be one of my favorite beers but the unpleasant hops keep it from being so. Still, this is a must try.
