Bursting with hop flavor and aroma, this is a classic American pale ale...Bold, yet very smooth...critically acclaimed, this pale ale will please the discerning beer palates.

Like most, Iím attracted to beer in a can. [A] Herbal and cirus tea, grain, light caramel, pale malt. [A] The graphics on the can look like a high-school "graphics-design" project. This one pours a hazy orange/amber. White head rises and falls. [F] Taste is pale malts, with more caramel, heavier tea, and finally some spritzy hops on finish. FInishes caramel, herbal, and hoppy. [P] This beer is almost the definitive example of a medium body. Just enough carbonation and hop tingle to cleanse the palate, but a full mouth feel. Wasnít too heavy or watery. Though it could have been more satisfying. [O] Iím not sure how cans of Wild Onion beer make it to the south side before Half Acre cans do, but Iím glad to see another local canning line. This beer was nothing to brag about, but it was pleasing in some aspects. I can say

Draft at source. Nose is floral and cream of wheat grainy smelling. This is not bursting with hop aroma as advertised. The Belgian pale ale with citra has way more hops. Taste is slightly less underwhelming but it isnít bursting either. Slightly sweet. Meh.

This one is citruscy and soapy flavored. Easy to drunk and nice and hoppy. Pours light yellow with a thick white head. Had at Wild onion.

Aroma pine, some citrus and a note of caramel..Orange amber color with a white head. Sweet malt up front...kind of off. Piney bitterness next. Finish is a bit unbalanced.with a weird after taste. Sub par.

12 ounce can from Binnyís. Malty and fruity esters without much of a hop bite to it. Ok but glad I only bought one.

Tap at the brewpub. Light orange pour with a spotty white head. Mild grapefruit aroma. Palate is thin and a bit watery. Lower flavor.

Hazy amber color with white head. Can really smell the cascade hops. Perhaps a little bitter for the style.

12 oz can. Pours a very hazy, almost opaque deep orange. Pretty color. Large sustained off-white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with citrus. Some earthy smell. Tastes of citrus and herbs. Bitter grapefruit finish that lingers. Decent.
