Pours a clear pissy color with very small fizzy white head. Light malt, cheap grain, a bit of citrus and hops, and piss. Not much like a APA, more like a cheap american macro. Not good.

This has lots of charactaristics of an international lager. Light hops and pilsnery malts, not too great. Watery and metallic. Eh.

Medium gold color, small head. A medium bodied ale. Advertised as a “traditional Irish” ale. Malty and slightly hoppy. Smooth taste, perhaps a bit too carbonated? Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Green bottle, so it has some skunk. Airing it out didnt help. Pale yellow with a white head. Skunky with some grainy cereal. The taste is light corn and grass. There is just a hint of hops. Very light and no where near an APA, more like a light golden, nearly a Kolsch.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 Pour yellow with not much head. Not much nose. Not much flavor. Not an APA in my opinion, but a very average pilsner. Almost a drain pour.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with yellow tints around the edges of the glass. The head was about a film of a white cap. There was barely any lacing. The smell had a light spice somewhat like black pepper but not off putting, just different. Theres a light caramel malt gently coming in as it warmed. The taste was mainly malty sweet with the spice to come back secondly. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Theres a quick spicy aftertaste and finish. Overall, APA, uh....sure, its a different one alright but nothing bad.

Pours a piss yellow color with a thin head. Slightly bitter aroma and taste, but more processed grain. Eh, its not all bad... but not much good either.

Pours a nice golden yellow color. Aromas of malts, hops, and a touch of pine. Flavor has a nice crisp taste with a clean dry finish.

Couldnt tell the difference between this and a lager. Not sure what makes it an APA. Not much aroma and taste, kind of bland.
