3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a crystal clear pale copper with a thin ivory head. Very lacy. Grassy pale malt and lightly citrusy hops in the nose.
Crispy in the mouth. Persistent bitterness surrounded by a crisp grassy malt. Straightforward beer, that’s about all it’s got. Tasty though. Crisp mouth and refreshing. A decent pale ale.

Pours a clear golden color with a small head. Initial aroma reminded me of the Terrapin Rye Ale, and the flavor did as well. Nice finish. Would have liked it with a bit more bitter. I will have it again. (actually 5 more times!)

From a bottle. Honey brown color with a quickly dissapearing white head. Lightly hoppy aroma. Very good taste for a pale ale. Hops and grains are abundant but the beer is still very drinkable. A fantastic session beer that doesn’t sacrafice flavor.

medium golden-brown color, small white head. very sweet aroma. I was impressed by how much I could actually SMELL this beer. Perhaps it was just served slightly warmer than normal, but dang... anyway... citrusy hops... aren’t cascade hops the same as what’s in Flying Dog Am. Pale Ale? I think so. You can taste the similarity. Very nice, medium-bodied, slightly fizzy mouth feel. Good stuff.

Oh hell yes, had this at the infamous Stone Lion. Amberish color, kinda deep with a decent good off white head. more malts than hops in the aroma. Has a decent flavor to it, kinda thick too as far as the malts go, not too bad, tasted pretty damn good after having a flat pitcher of pbr.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Best by the 5th week of May 05) A subtle, but spicy hop aroma rises from this beer’s moderate head and lace. The palate is malty, hoppy and dry. The nose comes out more as the beer warms and it changes from spicy and moves to floral/citrus. The finish is long clean and refreshing. I really like this beers dryness. A really nice session APA.
