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.

Bottle... Poured a pale, watery yellow with a thick white head. I think they forgot what style of beer they were making. Sickening aroma of sour malt, and it just tastes like hoppy seltzer water. Very disappointed in this one to be considered a pale ale.

Headbanger (3942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2009
12oz bottle 3/4/09 (Tukwila Trading Post)-Pours a clear golden body with a small white covering for a head. Aroma of skunk. Taste of slight hops and a little malt. This light bodied brew should not be put in a green bottle and I was expecting more from this beer.

More akin to an American standard, Blue Boar is pale gold and exudes a slightly sweet aroma. This beer definitely reminds us that Henrys is a macro brewer--as it is bland tasting and lacking character, though smooth.

maekchu (3613) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle at The Burrito House (PDX). Sugary sweet malt nose. Pale straw color. Sweet, cookieish maltiness, very light citrus hop, light cake frosting finish. Thin. Claims to be brewed with Cascade hops, but they are not detectable. This was the only beer on the menu that I hadnt tried before, and so I gave it a go. Pretty "crafty" stuff.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin, poorly retained, white head, over a fizzy, yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is hints of cereal from the malts, hints of pine from the hops, minimal esters....taste is light Pils malts, hints of pine with a minimally bitter finish from the hops.....mouth feel light, watery, carbonation makes a soda quality. This is not an American Pale Ale. The hops are very minimally present. It is almost light enough to be a Pale Lager. BJCP 4/2/7/3/4

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2006 Very clear and pale yellow ... headless. Corny nose. Thin and watery texture. Malts were reminiscent of wet bread with honey and a little DMS on top. Ripe apple notes were nice, albeit subdued. No head, but rather carbonated mouthfeel ... a little chewy, too. Finish was dry and relatively lifeless. A few seconds later, in the aftertaste, some bitterness (with a hint of toast) surfaced. Not quite enough to balance things out, though. Yawn.

Very light blonde color and light flavor as well. Malts and hop taste is present, thin body overall. Clean and crisp, but just doesnt have much kick.

Not a real good attempt at an APA. Tastes pretty much like a cheap lager. Not any hops to speak of. Some graininess.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAR 29, 2011
12oz bottle. Rating #159. Clear yellow/gold pour with a light white head. All skunk in the nose, it overpowers anything else that might have there. Flavor was the same, more skunk, why would a brewer use green bottles. (1539)
