This was in the top spot as my favorite american beer and was the best a pale ale could get. Strange how so much can change when the original company that made it disappears. Still, wish it were easier to find in the midwestern states.

weak aromas of hay, grass, and tin can. the taste is reminiscent of a cross between a lager and a golden ale. got a little bit of barnyard funk. unfortunately not much in the hops department. ice cold on a hot humid summer day is the way to go here.

12-ounce bottles in a glass. A little boring, but thats standard with Pale Ales. Not bad, especially for the price, but I would pick the Private Reserve from the same company before this one.

Pours a clear golden color with a bubbly white head that dissipated quickly. The aroma is sweet malts, sugar, white bread, and some mild hops. The taste is lightly toasted barley, white bread, cereal, and mild hops to help balance. The mouthfeel is light and the drinkability is super high. I really enjoyed this beer.

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

Gaga Lok and this is just another yellow piss beer from the PacNW. Tastes like it should basically.

"cleaner than many pales, but that is because its a thoroughly weak interpretation of the style. standard macro attempt at a microbrew style. boring."

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 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.

Bottle. Nose is noticeably hoppy, but the hops smell more like pepper than one of the traditional hop flavors. Taste isnt all that bitter, but theres a little bite to it, along with a faint hint of citrus. Not a lot of substance to the flavor, but drinkable.

Bottled. Pale golden color hardly any head. Light grassy nose. Arome is grassy corn-flavoured. Aroma is sweet lightly malty. Miss the hops. Light sweet finish. More like standard lager.
