RATINGS: 15   MEAN: 3.5/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.38/5   IBU: 45   EST. CALORIES: 153   ABV: 5.1%
It’s easy to forget just how dynamite a well-made pale ale can treat you. Our Pale combines softness from our Pilsner malt, a touch of sweetness from English crystal malt, and plenty of fruity, resinous Northwest hop flavor. The finish is dry, clean and refreshing.
Brewed with Gambrinus Organic Pilsner malt, imported crystal malt, Cascade, Centennial, and Perle hops. 5.1% ABV, 45 BU

NOTE: Due to tank space limitations, we’re sending Pale away on a sabbatical while we focus on making Alpenbrew for the thirsty winter crowd. Look for Pale to return to campus next summer... most likely sporting a killer tan and an exotic new girlfriend.

On draft. On the soft side. No sharp aromatics here. Smooth. Almost like a tame IPA. Under carbonated. Solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the taproom. Poured a light yellow with a thin head. The aroma was slightly soapy with mild malt. The flavor was all astringent soapy hop with very little malt balance. I had a hard time finishing my beer and half way through started thinking that it may be slightly skunked.

Draft at the taproom. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty hoppy citrus aroma. Sweetish malty hoppy citrus flavor. Has a sweetish malty slightly fruity hoppy finish

From a growler fill at the brewery. Pours pale amber with a good-sized white head and plenty of lacings. Aroma is floral hops. Taste is grapefruit citrus bitter hops. Just enough malts to support the bitterness. Tangy, almost crisp. Close to IPA level of hops. Very tasty brew. I will enjoy the rest of this growler. Due to the reasonable abv, this would be a fine session APA.

Golden with thin white head. Nice floral hop aroma. Bitterness hits first but is not cloying. Clean finish, bitterness and carbonation create a prickly mouthfeel that enhances hop bitterness

On tap at Green Dragon in PDX--Poured a hazy glowing orange-golden hue with a fluffy small white head. Nice summer quaffability with a great play between the subtle malts and hops. Slight citrus tang and a solid but not pushy malt character. Yum!

Great sessionable pale ale. This would be great to drink all the time. Simple with a great malt structure you can really sink your teeth into. Bitter hoppiness, lots of citrus and grapefruit. A simple, well balanced pale ale.
