A careful selection of Northwest hops, premium barley, and our unique yeast give this ale a rich and complex malty middle with a snappy hop finish. Crisp, clean and smooth with hints of citrus and fruit.

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.

Draft at the Sheraton (Seattle, WA). Pours a rich amber color with a beige head. Nice hoppiness in the aroma. Good flavor with a balance of malt and hops.

On tap at the Knitting Factory. Tastes nutty--weird for a pale. Tastes a little watered down towards the end. Deep copper/amberish color. Interesting take on the American pale ale.

Poured a cloudy amber. Aroma was interesting with sweet cream and citrus. Flavor was not as hoppy as I would have thought for a pale ale. Fairly bland but there is a slight minty pine hops aftertaste. Overall, I expected it to be a bit more aggressive. I thought it was a bit boring.
