COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Osiris Pale Ale is an assertive American Pale and is not meant for the timid. Crafted by our Brewers for our Brewers, Osiris blends three choice varieties of American hops to create a spicy, citrus hop punch that is sure to satisfy any hop head. Every batch of Osiris is dry-hopped towards the end of fermentation for maximum hop flavor, aroma and character.

Sampled on tap at the brewery. An overall decent pale ale. A little lighter on the hops side then the West Coast Pales Iíve grown accustomed to but a nicely balanced one.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2010 Sample from can at the Beer íN Rock Band tasting on 08/27/2010: The beer is a clear golden color with a medium fluffy off-white head that recedes slowly. Thin sheet of lacing at the top of the glass with spots underneath. Hoppy aroma with primarily citrus notes, along with a touch of malt. Medium body with hops and zesty citrus flavors along with malty notes. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Straightforward, decent Pale Ale overall.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2010 Courtesy of northernbrews

Can: The aroma consists of caramel, light citrus hops, and a touch of grass. It pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze and a small white head. The flavor starts with light-moderate caramel. The finish has moderate grapefruit hops. Light-medium bodied with lively (at times prickly) carbonation.

LtDan (1740) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Appearance: Pours an amber gold with a thin film at the top.

Aroma: Big zesty piney hop blast.

Taste: Bitter, earthy hops, slight spicy sticky malt, finishes dry and piney.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, fairly carbonated.

Overall: Reminded me of the hop and malt profile I find in Pacific North West beers. Not my favorite APA, but drinkable.

WabashMan (1007) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 20, 2010
A nice APA, with a good, citric hops character and depth of flavor. It falls short of the best APAs, but would certainly do just fine most of the time.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Can courtesy of stfun. Pours copper with a lasting white head. Smells of some floral notes, dry malt, some funky touches. Tastes of sweet oranges, caramel, honeydew, some peppery hints and a spicy finish. zenjoyable.

EarlyCuyler (12) - Missouri, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Aroma of American hops, grapefruit and citrus. Medium mouthfeel, not too thing, not too thick. Hop bitterness is evident, but lacks enough malty sweetness for balance. Decent APA, but really needs more maltiness to balance the hop bitterness.

smooch (238) - Sylvania, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2010
A "mild" pale ale. On the can it says west coast style but to me not very hoppy and this is a pretty fresh can. And I say not too hoppy as someone that isnít much of a hophead. Tasty and very mild pale ale. Nice color, not much aroma, but tasty.

juiceisloose (1055) - Windermere, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2010
16 oz can, courtesy StFun. Pours a mostly clear golden yellow and topped by a small, off white foamy head that dissipates quickly. The aroma shows notes of light, floral hops, light citrus, and some fresh grass all atop a pale malt base. The flavor follows with some light citrus, and fresh cut grass to go with floral hop bitterness. The pale bready malts adds a touch of sweetness to go with the light bitterness from the hops. Light bodied on the palate with good carbonation and a lingering floral hop bitterness on the finish. This is an easy drinking pale ale, but just lacks that something extra to set it apart.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2012 Wow. I remember liking the Osiris when I first had it, but it didnít jump out at me. Got some almost 2 years later and itís a REALLY GOOD pale ale. My initial rating is below, and I gave it a 3.2. Pale ale color - nice, pretty much in the same range, but a good color for this style. THE NOSE IS AMAZING. I think theyíve surpassed Alpha King in terms of the "Indiana" pale ale. Lots of Citrus, and I think there are some Simcoe hops in here...Iím getting that cat piss aroma (I LOVE THAT). Taste is smooth and the flavor hops are there with just the right amount of bite. It is not harsh. Good job, guys! ------&# Old Review from 6/16/2010 --------&# the most part, this is your standard pale ale, but it does have itís own unique hop flavor - it doesnít taste like a Sierra Nevada clone. Iíd say that the hops give off a tinge of tobacco, but mostly itís citrus. I was hoping for more of an Alpha King type zing, but no such luck. Comes in 16-oz cans, which is neat. Sorta expensive at $11.99/4-pack though.
