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.

The oldest of BridgePort's beers, Blue Heron is one of those rare birds in Oregon (sorry)--a true session ale. Red-hued, gently citrusy from Cascade hopping.

Lite golden brew topped by a short lived 1/2" head... not real lacing. Aroma is Citrus/Grassy hops and pale malts... mild yeasty fruitiness. Grassy and mild grapefruit hoppiness in the palate... very good pale malt backbone... throw in some EKG spicyness for good measure... lite medium mouthfeel

This is the best beer I have ever drank. I do like hops in beer however with hayfever, the allergies can kick up pretty quick when I drink a real hoppy beer like an IPA. This IPA is perfectly balanced, lightly hopped and its tastes perfect.

Frlm bottle. Pours dark golden with a foamy white head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma has some citrus. Taste is a malty citrus with some bread and caramel. Moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Light bitter finish.

On tap at BridgePort. Clear amber with thin head. Not much aroma to speak of. Dry plain malty taste, dry finish. Meh.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light biscuit and earthy hop nose. The flavor is clean and light: light bitterness, fruity mellow hops, caramel. Nice.

Borresteijn (7602) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 13, 2013
35cl Bottle brought from Portland, as Blue Heron Pale Ale. Thanks H&T! Clear light amber colour, white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, light dusty malts. Flavour is light sweet, caramel, light grainy, light bitter finish with some caramel. Light-bodied. Non-descript, easy going beer.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2012
On tap at the brewpub in Portland, OR. Pours a clear golden-amber colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is floral citruses with some lemons and oranges as well as a medium sweet caramel malt backing. Flavor is similar. Medium sweet caramels with a hint of bread and a floral citrus hopping. Finishes dry, lightly bitter, and somewhat citrusy before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Light-medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent pale ale. Somewhat bitter, lightly sweetened, and fairly citrusy with a good amount of florals. Nothing special, but not bad.

bb (9790) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle. Orange-amber beer with a light cream head. Malt and light grapefruit aroma. Malt and light grapefruit flavor with light pine. Medium bodied. Malt and light grapefruit linger with light pine.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2012 Portland, Or - on tap at the Bridgeport Alehouse. Sparkling medium amber pour, soft white pillowy head with nice lacing. Pretty much of a neutral aroma with a hint of caramel sweetness. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some light citrus, a bit of nuttiness. Smooth, even clean mouthfeel with just the right thickness.

idedek (157) - USA - AUG 5, 2012
very light to no aroma, a slight maltiness. a light caramel flavor medium to light body. nothing overall distinctive in the flavor but, nice and mild. a clean mild finish.
