DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[3/3/15] Draught at Hales Ales Brewery & Pub in Seattle. Clear golden. Aroma of citric and floral hops and mild maltiness. Flavor has mild sweetish malt and nice bitter citric hops. Medium-bodied. Nice. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 9, 2015
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy orange color with a light carbonation to be seen rising to fill a rapidly dieing one finger white foamy head. Light lacing started to cling and then slid.
The smell had a decent sweet caramel maltiness running along into a light citrus blend.
The taste was a combined sweet caramel and citrus aspect to it. A light citrus aftertaste leads to a semi-dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. It was nicely carbonated.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good APA that I could have again. Sledutah (7788) - Utah, USA - FEB 14, 2015
12oz can picked up at Total Wine WABeerFiend (413) - - JAN 16, 2015
Cloudy golden with a big off-white head, some lacing. Aroma is floral, dusty and herbal. Flavors are herbal, earthy and lemon peel
Ok but I wouldn’t have another one.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 05.09.14.
A: Orange/red. No head or lacing. Chunks were floating in it.
S: Biscuit, citrus.
T: Burnt flavor, citrus, metal.
O: I thought that this was a bad bottle because of the sediment, but it is bottle fermented according to the label. This is the second go around with this beer. The first one that I had was the same with chunks and all so maybe they have QC problems. Like the first time, this was also a drain pour.

12oz bottle in Seattle. Solid nw-style pale, mild hops by today’s standard. But sweet and tasty

12oz bottle, not the ultra patriotic can. Medium head fades to a moderate lacing. Orange colored beer. Clear and filtered throughout. Its got too much caramel and too much American bitter hops, not my fav. Lots of dusty British malt as well. These are the exact Pale Ales I don’t like. jsnicholas (663) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle (12oz $1.30) Hazy golden brown with two finger head that fades. Smell citrus. Tastes bready with the hops kicking in little in the end with a slight metal taste, Travlr (25749) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Barely avoided being voted as a drainpour by five tasters at the brewpub in Seattle. Seemed to be artificially flavored. A keeper. Meaning, please keep it, do not serve it any more. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Fine particles suspended in the body hazing it up. Thin off-white head, leaving good thicker lace. Medium body. Kind of slick texture. Kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Kind of a bready malt flavor, lightly grainy. Lighter on the hop. Some light pine, herbal hop. Little bit of citrus. Moderate sweet taste, light bit of bitterness. OK, kind of sweeter malt-forward pale ale (who knows how old it is). Luckily it’s not a big caramely malt sweetness though, it’s solidly pale. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Draught at Hales Ales Brewery and Pub, as Original Pale American Ale
Cloudy golden color. Very dry Ale, with light aroma, light caramel flavor, hints of lemon peel; fairly bitter but a bit metallic in the end.
