(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) clear gold with sparse fine white bubbles. Nose of orange, cream, and herbal. Taste is oddly a bit tart, cracker, earth, rye and a bit of orange with a dry finish.

Thanks to terminus for picking this one up for me. Pours golden / copper with a large rocky off-white head. The aroma has lightly toasted smooth malt with spicy / piny hops. Medium crisp body with lots of sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with oxidization, dry caramel malt and spicy hops. The finish is about the same. Hopefully Ill be able to get a fresh bottle and get in a rerate.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2007 Light golden to straw color. Smallish off-white head. Head caramel malt aromas with light citric zest and a touch of pine wood. Full feel with tight bubbles that carry it across the palate. Fairly dry, in that there is not much sweetness to this one. Some light caramel and a touch of bread dough that is displaced quite quickly by grapefruit zest. I touch too bitter for for my palate, at least without some more sweetness and malt to back it up. Light pine wood come back in at the finish and linger. Needs some more sweet malt or hops flavors to liven this one up. As Im near the end, things have warmed up a touch and the flavors do seem to be coming out some more. Ill need to re-evaluate with another bottle soon. Re-evaluated the next day. Still seems like a premium lager with an ale yeast. not enough malt depth.

Poured at home from 12oz can. Golden clear color, white head. Musty lager aroma. No hops or bitterness. Taste has a hint of honey and fruit. Overall a pretty pedestrian pale ale, but it is pretty easy drinking on the bright side.

Thanks to skyview for sharing. A better than average pale ale. Great hop aroma and full bodied hop flavor with citrus and grass. Cloudy gold colored.

nuplastikk (5957) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Golden orange color, minimal head. Earthy, soapy hop aroma. Mild soapy bitterness with a smooth malt backbone. Fresh and enjoyable. Medium bodied. Light fruitiness and toasty malt nuances. Pretty good, but hardly world class stuff.

Skyview (5834) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Sampled on draught at the brewery taproom in Middleton, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden pale yellow brew with a thin white head that quickly dissolves to a fine film and white ring. Aroma of light bread malt with an abundance of grapefruit zest, piney hops and tart lemon. Taste is medium bodied, very light carbonation with smooth and creamy flavor that has a good balance of bready malt and citrus zest. Finish has a malty flavor at first and then a lingering mild bitter aftertaste. Received word that Capital Brewery will be bottling this pale ale soon.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Screw-Top Bottle: Clear golden/yellow body with a smallish white head. It has a pretty subdued aroma, some sweet pale malt and light hop scents of grapefruit and pine. Nice and snappy mouthfeel. The flavor is sweet with pale malt, has a bit of toasted white bread, and a rather indistinct hop bitterness. The hops are more defined in the finish - pine, grapefruit, and flowers. Sessionable.

heemer77 (5325) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Bright, medium gold body with a light off white head. The aroma is classic light grapefruit with some dandelions. There is also a little a little bit of bread crust. The taste has light grapefruit flavors with some bread crust. A little bit of floral notes creep in as it warms. The body is sharply carbonated and this is a little distracting.

A growler carted back by Skyview. Gold color with a little head. Strong aroma of citrus and grass. The grass stays in the forefront for flavor; citrus falls to the background. Not much bitterness, but an overall well made beer.
