COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fiercely local, drawing on indigenous ingredients from the hop fields of the Willamette Valley and the barley fields of the high Northwest desert. This pale ale is round and soft on the palate, finishing crisply, to capture the flavor and spirit of the Pacific Northwest in every pint and bottle.

On tap at Bridgeport, Portland. Copper colour with thin off white head. Slightly stale I thought. Bit of banana. It’s got that blackcurrant flavour so perhaps Willmette hops. Bit over carbonated. Odd estery aroma as well. Fine.

Light hoppy aroma, backed by some malt. Light gold color with a head that tries to lace. Starts with carbonation bite, followed by some light malt, balanced by some light hop. Medium mouthfeel. A light APA, but the bitter finish is appropriate for the type.

DuffMan (10429) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2008
So who ripped off who with the blue heron pale ale idea-- Mendocino or Bridgeport? Hardly matters anyway. This pours a handsome bright orange amber, slightly hazy. Sweet caramel and apricot fruit in the aroma. Caramel, some apricot fruit, and a vegetal quality to the finish. Moderately bitter, light/medium bodied.
