COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Axe Handle Pale Ale is a “West-coast” pale ale. Hopped during the boil and “dry hopped” after fermentation, the flavor and aroma come from the Cascade hops. This ale finishes with a firm bitterness and malt aftertaste.

rosenbergh (6789) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2013
Draught at the Uncle Billy's Brew & Que, Austin, TX. Cloudy golden colour with a small white head. Sweet and fruity hoppy aroma. The flavour is sweet fruity hops, mild bitterness and sweet malt. Maybe a bit too sweet to be really tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft... Hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The bouquet offers pale grains and those signature Simcoe, earthy, cat-pissy aromatics. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Nice earthy hops dominate the flavor, but a firm malt backbone lends plenty of support. Finishes crisp with lingering bitterness.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle:   Amber with golden tint, lots of sediment as the bottle winds down, large frothy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Very soft hop nose, a touch pithy.   Getting a little bit of that Cascade hop profile towards the back of this beer.   Decent maltiness, fairly clean.   Comes across as a softer Pale Ale. &nbps Not as hoppy as other PNW examples, but as is very enjoyable and solid.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Half pint at the Lake Travis location. Had this immediately after having a bite of bbq with jabanero sauce so who knows? Clear and golden with a small off white head. Soft hops and heavier malts define this. Floral hops and citrus. Fruit comes out more as it warms (or as the sauce clears). This is dry and fairly bitter.
