Traditionally, the winemaker's beverage of choice during grape harvest is often beer; hence, this ale is dedicated to winemakers everywhere. It is a truly traditional American pale ale, medium-bodied and full of Chinook and Cascade hops from the Pacific Northwest. It has an intense floral and spicy aroma and flavor with just a hint of caramel malt.

jgb9348 (5557) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2003
Slightly hazy golden colour with a large slightly off-white head. Very dry and hoppy smelling. Very hoppy initiall taste overridden by a nice malt flavour. A medium-bodied APA with a great flavour! Definately worth trying!!!

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2003
Very hoppy and dry. This bottle has quite a bit of "floaties" in it, and the finish is very bitter. Cloudy, dark amber color, medium, white head.

notalush (5707) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2003
This is a pretty darn good pale ale, with a wave of hops in the beginning, sime citrusy bitterness in the middle, and a blast of maltiness in the finish. This is medium-bodied, but pretty full bodied as far as pale ales go. If you want to try a Wagner beer, this should be the one.

Chock full of Chinook and Cascades, this APA is exactly what it says it is. Lame head, though. Hops are evident in the aroma, too. Nice.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2002

QXSTER199 (9) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2001 does not count
A bit of Northwest hops influence in this Finger Lakes ale. Crisp, refreshing and balanced for a fine brew.

Light copper colour; earthy-floral nose; bitter palate with good hop dosage and hints of biscuity, caramelly malt balance.
