jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
2010-07-03. Lightly hazy orange body, small creamy off-white head and lace. 3+ Flavour is modestly bitter throughout, light citrus hops (tropical, hints at floral, lemon), mild lingering tangerine. Mild malt is a bit odd/grainy and does not always play nicely with the hops. Aroma of muted citrus seeds, off-putting overtones that are not quite bile/sweat, more likely an odd variation on resiny/leafy hop character. Average to light palate. Odd. On tap at Hales, Seattle

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennanís 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 itís not a big caramely malt sweetness though, itís solidly pale.

[3096-20100703] Tap. Mild sweaty dog aroma with floral hints. Hazy, medium orange body with a long-lasting creamy white head. General grainy floral yeast flavour does not have a lot to it other than some bitter citrus notes. Medium body. Sessionable but not my favourite.

12 oz. Well, a 12-oz bottle right now, but probably a couple dozen other times in the last 20 years, too. Why Iíve not rated this heretofore is a bit of a mystery to me. But here we go. Pours a hazy burnished dark gold with a thin little splotchy film of suds on top. Intermittent drippy lace. Mild grassy corn nutty nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, nuts, and grass on the mid palate. Very mild and easy drinking APA...probably not hoppy enough to really be an APA, but thatís alright. Good little beer.

2.7
Ernest (7658) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, grapefruit, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Very straightforward and basic. A bit too sweet.
