Strykzone (7555) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Sampled at the brewpub. Clear gold with a small white head. Soft malt and floral hops are smelled. This is sweet and has gentle bitterness. Hops are soft in the flavor profile. Some floral and citrus. Malt is light and sweet and some grain is tasted. Bif (2307) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2012
On tap- Served a copper color with a nice head and good lacing. Aroma of citrus , fresh grain and bit of caramel. Taste of hops with a mild caramel sweetness. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly medium body, smooth and refreshing. Nice balance with a 6% ABV. Decent beer that went well with my meal at the brewpub.

Clear, golden color with a thick white, small foamy head that leaves great lacing. Aroma has a light MO biscuit maltiness and some light citrus and grassy hop notes. MO malty flavor is excellent with a very mild bitterness imparted from a citrus note. Overall this beer reminds me more of an English Ordinary Bitter/English Pale ale style rather than an APA. Probably their best beer there. hayduke (5617) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 12, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2008 On draft from the brewpub in Cape Girardeau, MO. It came in pint glass a rich orange to gold color with a small white head.Nose of caramel malts and some floral hops. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is very odd. Some kind of spice which I assume comes from the hops. Finish is dry. Overall a somewhat odd brew though drinkable. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Tasted 8/6/2007. Ragsdale’s below the brewery. Filtered with a golden hue. Layered clinging white head. Graham cracker cookie and citrus aromas. Light to medium bodied with short lived flavors. TOuch cereal and orange. Spicy hops. Off dry palate. Good grapefruity hops. Leaves a nice acidity on the finish. Good APA.

tap at augusta bottoms beerfest alongside vyvvy. light orange with a small foamy white head. wierd aromas here-dusty and definately somewhat oxidized with some light hops. flavors go nowhere-badly dusty malts with some soggy notes as well. body is thin and watery with no substance whatsoever. could have been the worst beer at the fest (other than the amber ale that vyvvy had from some winery present at the fest). vyvvy (6638) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2006
Sampled at Augusta Bottoms Beer Festival 2006. Not the best sample of the day by far. Poured lightly hazy yellow with a small unattractive head. Aroma has dusty malts and spicy hops. The body is thin and watery with not much carbonation to speak of. The initial taste is watery dusty malts. The finish has a good amount of spicy hops for a small period then it is back to the watery taste. Overall a bad pale - the flash of spicy hops right at the beginning of the finish is nice, but that is about all. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 8, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. Clear gold in color. Sweet floral aroma. Underhopped. Possibly the flavor of rye in this one? Detectable cascade hops that are underused. jefcon (1921) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2006 Slightly orange and a little hazy in the glass. No head to speak of. Some citrus aromas, some hops -- Cascade and Golding -- if I remember right. A slight bite of alcohol, but still a drinkable pale ale. Lots of body, though I thought this beer was a bit light on the finish. (Rerated 8-12-06 aromas are outstanding on this pale ale -- strong english hops, great fruit and spices.)
