a good pale ale with a wonderful aroma and a bitter aftertaste. A great beer for the summer.

Thank you to Brentfeesh for the trade! Gold color with no head. Very earthy hop aroma, definitely more like the aroma from an English Pale Ale than American. The hop bitterness in the taste is almost completely subdued by the sweet malt, making it close to an Amber in my opinion.

Gold in color. Moderate carbonation. Hop aroma. Biscuity, bready malt body with some hops in the flavor. Very smooth and drinkable. Well balanced, if the flavors are understated.

Skyview (5310) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2007
A 12-oz bottle shared by Badgerben, pours an orangish-golden brew with a small off-white head that dissolves quickly with no lacing. Aroma of some carael malt, dark red berries, citrus hops and some mild spice. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with a balanced flavor of caramel malt, citrus hops and some sweet pear. Finish is slightly oily, citrus aftertaste with some mild bitterness.

Thanks to Badgerben for sharing. Pours a medium colored amber. Nice toffee and floral hops. Kinda waxy flavor with a light toffee flavor. Not very impressive.

This is a pleasant brew that is a good summer thirst-quencher. Starts somewhat tart.

Rated 7/30/07. Amber-gold color with a small, patchy white film that leaves behind minimal lacing. Very nice citrus and herbal hop aroma. I picked up mostly oranges and fresh cut grass. The hoppy flavors are the same, but a decent toffee malt background emerges as the beer warms. I wish the malts were more prominent, as that would balance things out quite nicely. Decent session brew, but nothing out of this world.

Thanks to Suttree for trading this to me. Pours a medium clean gold with a small white head. Good carbonation. Tiny bubbles shower to the top from start to finish. Aroma is quite hoppy with a nice mix of light malts and citrus. Flavor was very smooth. The malts seem to get kicked up a notch but there is still decent hop, mild citrus & floral flavors. The finish is refreshing with a light bitterness. Very good overall. Thanks again Phil.

Pours a clear golden yellow orange with a small white head. Aroma of faint floral hops with a hint of malt. Taste is slightly hoppy with a bit of a floral finish. Average Pale Ale.
