UPDATED: AUG 15, 2003 Orange-amber colored with a clean hop aroma showing some complexity. The flavor was clean as well and rather sweet. A good pale ale--though it borders on IPA grounds.

On tap at the Maple Leaf Grill in Seattle.

Pours a cloudy amber with a small, off-white head. The aroma is limited but inviting, with soft citrus, hops, and a hint of yeast. The flavor is similar, a smooth-drinking, well balanced American pale ale with ample (but not emphasized) bitterness in the finish.

While this is not a complex beer, it is a very pleasing one that is a joy to drink.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2007
Draft at Bishop’s Ale House. (Which should probably be renamed to Bishop’s Lager House due to the profusion of macro lagers here.) Pours a hazy amber, with a scant but lacy white head that paints concentric circles inside my pint. Mildly piney nose. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Just a hint of initial sweetness in the taste along with some grass and nutty tones, leading to a crisp pine finish. Sessionable.

Hazy dark amber color little too no head. has a strong malt background with a nice use of hops this was a crip cold and drainkable pale ale. The Haze was botersome butt his was a very tasty brew.

riversideAK (6227) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2007
On tap pretty much everywhere in the Seattle area. Aroma is a mix of biscuity malt and some mild citrus hops. Pours a hazy orangish color. It does look like a hefe in some accords. Flavor is more or less the same a the aroma. Its got some biscuity malts with some dry citrus and funky hops. It is a little soapy and has a pleasant finish. A great session ale.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Tap @ Front Door Boise: Pours a lightly misty amber color with an average head and lacing. The nose is spicy with floral cascades and some light sweet maltiness. The flavor is balanced, a nice clean dry pale ale with a full body and nice drinkability. Good!

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.
