UPDATED: JUN 12, 2007 Kind of similar to the amber ale but a little more bite from the hops. Nice floral notes and a smooth taste. I always am surprised how good this is. frankenkitty (2014) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2005

Served colder than I would have enjoyed, this amber-bodied beer started with an average-sized, off-white head and gave off weak yet captivating citrus-hop aromas. Lightly bitter flavor, through and through, resting on a light malt backbone. Medium-bodied with a dry finish.

Phenomenal Pale ale in my opinion. Super smooth, thought it was from a cask, but apparently it was not. Quite sweet with a wonderful combo of malt and hops, just about perfect if i may say so. StewardofGondor (1933) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Palatine location. Sweet, spicy smell. Tiny spotted head. Amber-bronze in color. Fruity crispness. Malt is more prevalent than the hops. Malt gives it a maibock like quality. More flavorful and fuller than Emmetts other brews. JPDIPSO (6298) - Wauwatosa, USA - FEB 2, 2005
From growler. Dark amber color with a smaller off white head. Aromas of fresh hops with a light backdrop of caramel and light toffee. Sweet malt start with a touch of light fruit. Citrus slips in and helps whisk away some of the sweetness. Very much an APA rather than an IPA as many would call this.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 Pouring a hazy, light copper color with a frizzy white head, this APA had a light, earthy hop aroma coupled with a whiff of malts. The two balanced nicely in the drink, ending with a crisp, slightly bitter finish. Not bad.SkyinBrian (430) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 5, 2004

this was a surprisingly agressive american pale ale. well balanced with plenty of hops. this was excellent. the only bad part was that it was part of a sampler and not a full pint.
