Had at the Coops with John Scoob ... Pours with a low amount of head ... the lacing is pretty good ... is smooth ... is a light golden yellow ... an average pale ale, is not to bad... This is a starter pale ale for the craft beer beginner!!

Medium-dark brown body with a tan head. Some lace. Hoppy nose with hints of citrus. Flavor- hop and malt (citrus, caramel) and a bit of pepper. Fairly balanced. Slightly bitter/ long finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper, with thin tan head. Excellent piny hop aroma, with some malt coming through. Fizzy in the mouth, with a cardboard flavor that covers the malt flavors. The hops are minimal in the flavor, given the aroma.

Bottled. An odd beer. Certainly didn’t come across as a Pale ale of any stripe--American or India. Maybe they’re trying to come up with a new style--La Crosse Pale, anyone? Drinkable and refreshing, but the bitterness wasn’t the hoppy variety one would expect. The only saving grace was that it was cheap, rendering this an inexpensive experiment.

Bottle. Rather dark pour for a pale ale; more copper color than anything. I enjoyed this beer and it seemed well brewed, especially for the "cheap" price.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
NIce caramel and hop aroma, slightly smoky. Hazy copper color, medium off white head, good lacing. Ashy hop flavor with a lemon twist. Bark and hop finish. Very well balanced. It’s rather earthy which I really like.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Last of the Tap Room beers.
This one at least has a nice enough appearance, though dark for a Pale.Its dark amber with a nice enought tan head.
Aroma mostly malty, with very little else to describe.
Tste mainlly malts, semi-bitter, buttery somewhat and tofeeish, but it doesnt last long and by the end of the mouthful it turns towater.
Thin and watery palate.
Slightly the best of the three, it comes a cross more as an English Pale to me.
