COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale 208 is brewed to be Idaho’s session ale. This crisp drinkable ale has a light malt body and subtle yet citrusy hop character. It’s brewed with 100% Idaho grown grain, hops and pure Idaho spring water. The package imagery is inspired by and pays tribute to Idaho’s rich agricultural heritage and its diverse and beautiful vistas.

The name comes directly from the 208 area code that encompasses all of Idaho. As broad and far reaching as this state is, we are all still Idaho.

poisoneddwarf (2645) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - APR 4, 2014
12 oz bottle from Super 1 in CDA, ID. Brewed on 1/6/14--a little old, maybe. Aroma is pineapple, caramel malt. Pours hazy golden with a diminishing white head. Taste is sweet and grainy, maybe a little past its prime; finishes bitter. Thin body, high carbonation. Dull. I wish I had a fresher bottle.

(En fût à la source): Simplement efficace combinaison d'agrumes, de blondeur et franche amertume.

12 oz single bottle from Bottles & Bitters at Sloan’s Lake. Clear golden orange in appearance with a white head. Aroma of toasted grain and mild hops (floral, herbal, earthy). Similar flavor, adding mild malt sweetness and light bitterness. Light bodied and easy to drink. Not bad overall.

ryanscourt (1531) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2016
First beer from Wyoming. Had on tap right in town which is beautiful. Beer is solid, similar to victory summer love.

Prufrockstar (2259) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle from Moscow Co-op. Bottled 8/11. Light gold pour, frothy dense white head, good retention, lacing. Soft wheaty cereal aroma, light citrus. Not much more than that. Medium sweetness, easy to drink -- pretty sure my mom would love this. Light body, basically no bitterness. Not at all exciting, but pretty sure that’s not the point.

Bottle picked up in Pocatello, enjoyed in Idaho Falls. Nice clear gold color with a foamy white head. The aroma reminded me of a sweet lager oddly enough. The flavor is grainy but finished with light bitterness. Okay and another ID check. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jake65 (4000) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle: A clear golden pour with a thin white head. Sweet malt and a little grass in the nose, light corn syrup. Taste is again sweet, malty and corn syrup. Minimal grass and floral notes. Not bad, but sweeter than I care for.
