3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Much cloudier pour than I expected with a thin white head. Modest lacing. Full floral hop aroma. Medium bodied, more forest, almost but not not quite an IPA. Lekker hop finish

I am the type of person that does not get excited about pale ales but manny’s is absolutely the exception.

All around decent pale ale. Orange body with a slight white head. Muted floral aromatics with a hint of citrus. Light to medium bodied with similar flavors to the nose. High carbonation, abrupt finish.

Apparently I’m supposed to fill this out. Take the numbers that I put down with a grain of salt if you will, but I’m just your average NW beer junkie looking to sample as many different brews as possible.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Solid offering, on tap at a bar downtown Seattle. Nice, orangey-gold color, florally and earthy, finishes nice. Drank several pints of this and would do it again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. Apparently this is the most popular of the Georgetown offerings. (note of trivia - Georgetown brewery is the second largest tap-only brewery in the U.S.) From the ratings, it appears that the recipe varies here and there. The version that I tried was nicely put-together, but very straightforward and not a lot of hops. It had a nice body to it, and drank very easily. I’m just disappointed with the lack of complexity to the aromas/flavors.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Seattle, Wa - on tap at Safeco Fieldhouse - Mariners-Twins Game. Medium copper pour, white head, thick lacing. Neutral aroma with a hint of fresh lake water. Flavor is slightly bland with some green tea notes, a light touch of mint, some ripening vegetable notes. Thick enough mouthfeel. Rolled the dice and missed somewhat on this one.

Pint @ George. I can’t believe I haven’t rated this yet! This and Mac and Jack’s African Amber could be the unofficial beers of Seattle because at least one of them is in every damn bar. Refreshingly hoppy (love those Cascades!). It’s a shame it looks like pond water. Not a bad go-to.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Ruth’s Chris steakhouse in Seattle, WA.
Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a two finger white head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Slightly floral aroma with delicate grassy hops countered by bread and pale malt notes. Subtle grassy pine character with faint citrus hop character followed by bread, biscuit and light fruit.
Medium bodied with a crisp hop presence up front that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malt into a slightly dry finish. Floral and earthy hop character that’s not overly dry or bitter followed by citrus rind, bread, biscuit and graham cracker. A well balanced, refreshing beer that pretty sessionable.
