COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Buddy, pal, mate, brother (or sister) from another mother, compadre . . . sidekick. All of these are ways to describe someone or something that is always at your side. Sidekick extra pale ale is one of those things. This golden colored ale is loaded with juicy citrus and passion fruit hop aroma yet balanced with malt and hop character. A true companion.

3/7/14 $3.29 bottle at CBO drank at home after meeting M&D for 2 beers (double jack and jailai) at CBO. Really enjoyed this. Aroma was very citrus especially grapefruit. One of the better pale ales I've had. ill high to be session able but this would be a great summer beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can. Excellent. Pours pretty clear gold with a nice white head. Initial aroma is perfume, geraniol. Some citrus notes, but almost made me sneeze. Light and crisp. Taste is pretty sweet with a light bitter finish. Flavors of biscuit, bitter orange peel. Decently sessionable.

A citrusy hop character. Low maltiness supports the hop. Fruity esters vary from moderate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DialSquare (2656) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2014
12oz bottle from Proof. Clear yellow-gold pour with a thin white head that leaves loose lacing. Aroma is pleasant citrus, caramel and grassy hops. Tastes are melon, grapefruit, grass, floral, caramel sweetness. Quick dry finish. Feel like this would be a nice beach beer - especially if itís in cans like the pic.

S_Side_Smitty (457) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Pours light gold with a thick white head. Aroma is mild with a faint citrus aroma. Taste is easy, bitter tangerine rind & light malts with a long mildly bitter finish. Easy to drink and would make a great session beer, but not as complex as the ratings would suggest.

cpetrone84 (1379) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Pour is mostly clear pale amber yellow with a mostly tight white head. Nose has a light doughy malt with a bit of caramel malt. Hops are citrusy, light herbal, and resinous. Taste is a bit more malt forward, strong caramel note and drier bread. Hops are citrus and more herbal, extremely dry finish with strong carbonation.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a lot of head. Light bitter hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

mansquito (3386) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2014
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, hints of pine, and a small malt backbone. Taste is a little bit on the hoppy side with a really light malty profile. I donít see what everyone else here is seeing in this beer. It is a good light ale that isnít watery, but really it is not that impressive.

kind of like a watery even watered down ipa. the flavor is good enough but the body seems a little too light with too much sweetness. watermelon minty flavor makes it like a kids drink. a mish mash.
