nuplastikk (6511) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Draft at the Old Fashioned. Light filtered gold-yellow color. Earthy bitterness, but nothing that would phase a hophead. Tastes like a Flagship beer to me, middle of the road stuff. Well balanced, but lacks depth. Solid but subdued.

A mid-range pale ale. Great appearance, gold color, a little haze, and big, white, rocky head. Mild aroma with hops and an acidic character. The hop presence in the flavor is deeper, some citrus, and mild bitterness balanced by malt flavor.

This brewery is quickly becoming one of my favorite "locals". Lightly hazed amber color with a rocky thick cream colored head. Crisp malt and light PNW hops profile. Light and somewhat spritzy body. Inital malt sweetness quickly snaped away by a hops bite. Light caramel malt flavors fight it out with pine needles jabbing the tongue. Nicely balanced. Initial hops finish, taken back by a mild malt linger. This rivals may out there in the APA department.

I thot I tasted this before, but no-here goes. Looks like a mild hefe in the glass. A mild piercing hoppy floral aroma. Leathery medium hop dull bite, seems like less than 5 abv. Yes, side back of throat bitter thing happening as the session continues. On style for an apa, but sometimes I think this brew is trying to run up to the pack of eye pah.

Skyview (6115) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2007
Picked up a few from Trigs in Wausau, WI. Pours a orange copper color with a medium off white head. Some lacing on glass. Aroma is toasted grain with some scent of young apples. Taste of more hops than medium barley malt. A long dry citrus finish with some mid bitterness. A little drier than most pale ales I’ve tried.

3.2
Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2007
Bottle. A amber beer with a white head. The aroma is of caramel malt, light fruity, grass, light citric hops. The taste is sweet caramel malt, light citric hops. Medium body with a dry finish.

Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Very nice. Pours a pale amber body with a decent creamy head. Heavy lacework. It has an aroma of tart tangerines and orange zest. There’s just enough sweet pale malt to balance out the flavor nicely, the citrus tastes dominating over all. Nice mildly bitter finish. A good session ale.

badgerben (5374) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 31, 2004
Golden color with a thin white head. Very hoppy aroma. Not much malt to balance out the hops in the taste. It is quite bitter and dry. Not the best pale ale, but certainly above average.

muzzlehatch (4975) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2005
12 oz bottle. Giant clouds of gaseous yeast in permanent suspension throughout the amber body, topped by a thick white bubbly head...baked light fruits in teh nose, sweet and yeasty and atypical...juicy, pungent body, cinnamon-vanilla-caramel underlying the bright apricots and spicy hops...dry, just a tiny bit thin at the end, but excellent overall.

3.7
tmoreau (4743) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2013
12 oz. bottle carefully poured to my 1/2 pint taster so as not to rouse the finger width of sediment at the bottom of the bottle, thus displaying a bright, clear, orangy gold color, with a persistent, white, frothy head, and equally lasting, curtainy lacing. The aroma was light, estery/syrupy sweetness, tangerine, and a touch of ruby/red grapefruit. The flavor initially presented a little grain & biscuit, then potent, earthy, rind-like, lingering hop bitterness that dominated the malt, yet was subtly smoothed by it. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation. A good example of a hop strong, yet nicely sessionable Pale.
