COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Terminal Gravity Pale Ale is a light brown to copper colored beer whose rich caramel malt flavors are offset by rich hop palette that combines the aroma of a evergreen forest on a summer day with earthy and spicy notes.

Can:   Amberish, slight haze, moderate foamy white head, nice lacing.   Very pale hop nose, moreso an earthy garage like malt base.   Weird, just smells like a damn car garage that people work on cars.   Yeah, minor hops up front, grainy backside.   Has more sweetness than I expected, and less hop umph.   Certainly a paler Pale Ale.   Luckily not so garage like on the tongue.   Not bad overall.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Pretty smooth, and the sweetness balances it out.   Worth a try in my book.

Bottle. Pours a very cloudy amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is a bit fruity and lightly grassy, but does seem to be a little past its prime (thanks, Total Wine). Taste is a bit bitter, but with some stale earthiness coming through. All in all, average at best.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Bottle... Poured deep bed with a thin head. A mild pale with forward malt tones and low hop resins and bitterness. Some yeast esters, light fruits, malt sweetness and a mild grassy, hop floralness.

shoulderbroken (3658) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2015
At Grub. Dark Amber colour, aroma is light lemony hops. Taste is biscuit malt forward with lemony hop finish. Not overly bitter, little bit spicy, speculoos, bit of brown sugar, quite nice.

maekchu (3400) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle from Kumiyama AEON Mall liquor shop. Thick caramel nose, veyr fruity, bready, biscuity. Hazy copper/brown color. Malty initial, quite earthy, gently tart in mid palate, spicy, with light but clear hopping in finish. Medium body. Thick stuff, more ESB or light barleywine-like than pale. A touch high in alc.

Bottle (6.1%) from LifeSource. Dark amber brownish in color. Somewhat hazy. Bready nose with a bit a little hoppiness. Some dry earthiness up front. Has characteristics of English hoppiness. Pretty good maltiness as well. Mouthfeel is pretty full. Tastes like a strong bitter or something.

On tap at the Oregon Brewers Festival 04. Pours a darker amber with a small white head. Very strong hopped aroma, kinda floral/citrus. Taste starts slightly malty and ends wit a strong bitterness. Very well balanced and smooth, but maybe a bit too hoppy for a pale ale, but I’m not complaining since i love hops. I wish i could get Terminal Gravity brews more often, then never let me down.

Bottle.

Explodes out of the bottle all over the kitchen counter. Orange tan pour, yellowed head, sediment. Bready aroma, a bit of metal. ESB elements. Sweet with orchard fruit. Aged barleywine caramels (what’s that about?). An unusual APA to say the least, but entirely tasty.

Reid (2300) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2011
12 oz from Lifesource,Salem. $1.45 Clear amber ale with a nice inch high off white ,creamy,thick head Nice slighly subdued English hop style aromas..creamy cereal in the back. Taste is very pleasing..its hoppy OK but also a thick and chewy malt balances it out..very pleasant semi bitter creamy finish. Great creamy mouthfeel to this one, Actually an excellent pale ale.

12 oz bottle into lager glass. My bottle reads 6.1 % ABV. Pours a hazy orangeish-copper with a medium off-white head that collapses in a minute, leaving a thin blanket and collar of foam; leaves some decorative lacework. Aroma is caramel, buttered biscuits; not very assertive. Doesn’t smell very hoppy like it says in the description up there. Taste is mostly sweet with bitterness coming up secondary and a faintly tart edge. This is one of the sweetest pales I’ve ever had--not in a cloying caramel malt kind of way, though, because it’s really tasty. Different. Carbonation and body are medium and the texture is creamy. Very good.
