COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dick the Butcher is a no-nonsense pale ale. Cascade hops deliver a fresh grapefruit aroma and a clean bitterness. Rye malt keeps this beer dry and drinkable. The first thing we do, is raise a glass to this refreshing brew.

Bif (2390) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - DEC 14, 2017
12oz can. Pours a light golden color with a good head a lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine and quite floral. taste of grapefruit, pine, light fruit and nice ration of grain. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Moderate body, crisp, clean and refreshing, with the rye adding a bit of character. Tasty.

rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2017
can. Golden with one finger head. Light body, nice punchy hops. A rather simple little pale ale, but it's well made and hits the spot.

Nice citrus/spicy aroma, all the ingredients from the description are present. Not very good looking; pale yellow with a big tuft of bright white foam. Great looking can art, but I'm not including that. I can taste the rye primarily with a moderate citrus hop bite at the end. Very drinkable, this would even be enjoyed by non hopheads. Good thick palate, low carbonation for an APA. This was pretty good.

Finhead (1845) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2017
Hazy, yellow pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma has faint grapefruit and grass. It has a light body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is bitter with a dry finish.

3.7
Scipio (1269) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2017
Pours a hazy, bright golden with a full and thick white head. A lighter aroma consists of grapefruit, pine, lemon, floral hops, and orange. The citrus elements come through much more here. The taste is mildly sweet and is couple with a sharp, powerful bitterness upon sipping. Heavy grapefruit, mango, pineapple, grassy hops, subtle pine, and hints of spices. Citrus up front, extending into the remainder of the above impressions. The aftertaste is grassy with the subtle spices found here. Lighter in body, slick in texture, and more than your average carbonation. This tastes very good.

Bill Becker (2003) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAR 14, 2017
12 ounce can. A: Hazy straw yellow, + 2 fingers of foam served at cellar temperature. No complaints aboot the lacing. S: Spicy pine and citrus aroma. Overall bitter smell. T: Light spiciness to the mostly piney hops, earthy malt that adds no sweet notes. How do I say it? Run of the mill. M: Good enough mouthfeel. O: Nothing noteworthy aboot this APA. A tough style since there are so many out there that are truly impressive.

tmoreau (4739) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2017
Shared 12 oz. can poured to a snifter showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a modest layer of soft white head foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was dank, then citrusy grapefruit, with some additional esters as pit fruit and tropical fruitiness. Light to medium bodied, with good carbonation, the taste offered a similar but less expressive take on the aroma notes, with soft malt presence, citrus & rind-like bitterness, and dry finish. Basic & sessionable Pale.

thegreenrooster (4626) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Pour is a hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma is a pleasantly mid hop. Flavor is again mild hop flavor with a bone dry malt. There is no date on the can but this seems fresh. A decent no frills pale ale.

3.3
RobertDale (6977) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 2, 2016
12 ounce can. Pours a pale golden orange with a decent white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is grapefruit, lemon, pine, and malt. Pretty good.

3.6
Itzjerm (3172) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - AUG 13, 2016
This is called Atlas Pale Ale when I had it. Very nice lasting head. Nice hop and citrus aroma. Carmel notes could be thicker on the tongue. For an APA, acturally very nice. Balnced zesty sweet and zingy.
