Not really a pale ale. Tastes like a slightly more flavorful Budweiser, nothing special, but slightly hoppier and slightly maltier.

Apparently a staple in Seattle, it is on tap at every happy hour in town. Quite quaffible indeed, with a creamy amber body that boasts floral and caramel notes above hints of bread and hops. Nothing special but gets the job done.

Tap at Elliot Oyster House in Seattle. Pours hazy amber with white bubbles. Floral/fruity aroma. Flavor is lightly fruity over mildly sweet caramel. Good taste. Mildly bitter finish. Floral enough to suggest ESB. Nice drink.

rather impressed with this one as a nice light breakfast beer. manny’s is a seattle staple and it is easy to see why. slightly peppery hops balance with maltiness and some citrus. well done pale

Cloudy red orange in color... Light citrus aroma.... Flavor has the bitterness of a west coast IPA, nice citrus lemon sweetness to balance... Not a bad pale ale... Pretty close to being an IPA, pretty decent

On tap at a Thai restaurant. Amber-red with a pinkish hue. Robust citrus in the nose (grapefruit, blood oranges), hints of red fruits and spicy hops. Tangy-hop taste and sweet, pale malt undertones paired well with the fiery food. Mouthfeel was smooth and slightly resinous, with balanced carbonation and a draw out citrus hop finish. I wish more Thai restaurants had beer like this on tap instead of the donkey-piss domestic and foreign lagers that pair poorly with the food.

Had this at the Seattle Airport on my way back from Japan. Maybe it was just the fact that I hadn’t tasted hops in about two years but I really think this beer was a very good example of the style. Excellent nose with a touch of caramel sweetness yet refreshing and tangy citrus notes. Taste is a smooth mix of pine sap, toffee flavors, and grapefruit. VERY sessionable beer. Liked it alot, something I would love to mimic one day as a homebrew recipie for a session beer.

Out of a growler from the brewery. Great session APA. Aroma has citrus and hops. Bronze color . Great taste, not overwhelming bitterness. No wonder this is one of the most popular taps in Seattle.

Pours a warm golden, sometimes a little hazy. Light Cascade/Citrus hops are followed by a slightly grainy aroma. If anything, this is a well-balanced and not overly-assertive pale ale. Finishes fairly dry and is very sessionable. Seems like this could be a superior example of an American Pale Ale if there was a bit more finishing hops and a touch more malt, I’ve had this beer several times and once in a while I can detect a fair amount of diacetyl. Good overall.
