Not as good as the private reserve, but still a good western beer to have every once in a while.

Better than most grocery store beers. I had kind of expected a bit more oomph somewhere but it never showed up. An easy drinking brew anyhow.

Washington is rating Henry Weinhards. 12-oz screwtop, brought to me by my boss as a gesture of kindness. And because he doesnt feel like moving a bunch of beers over to our new offices in the next building. Either way, its the kind of thing that puts a fellow in a fine frame of mind. Pours a crystal clear pale yellow with loose grayish fizz on top. Mild nutty, corny, slightly earthy-hoppy nose. Watery light body, a bit fizzy. Corn, nuts, and earthy hop on the mid palate. Amazing neutral finish for an "APA." But not an awful beer by any means. Just horribly dull.

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.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2002
Attractive medium gold color and surprisingly strong head for a macro. Aroma neither here nor there, but not objectionable by any means. Flavor is fairly well-balanced between hops and malt and keeps both relatively light. This product doesnt try to make a loud statement--a smart approach for a mass-marketed offering. Nothing outstanding here, but very drinkable--quite possibly the best of the Henry Weinhards line-up.

Pale crystal clear yellow a white head but minimal lacing. Aroma of hops, some fruit and a hint of spice. Thin body with a flavor of apples - very interesting and unexpected. Finish balanced towards malt and a clean but light bitterness. A decent beer on its own, but it makes for a surprisingly bland North Western Pale Ale.

On first impressions, like a glorified Molsons Golden. Pours with medium head that quickly disappeared. Standard US pale aroma, taste a little more creamy (within the realms of a light lager) and not as crazily fizzy as e.g. PBR. Very little bitterness in the finish. Overall decent but not Full Sails finest by a long way.

Katamar13 (4) - Oregon, USA - APR 9, 2012 does not count
Straw color, very "skunky" aroma, thin mouthfeel, little to no taste, easy to drink but pretty boring.

355ml bottle poured a pale amber gold color with a small white head that left very little lacing on the glass. Aroma was cereal grains and citrusy notes. Taste was a light malty sweetness with a decent hoppy bitter finish. Certainly didnt taste like Cascade hops, as I have had many Cascade hopped beers since and all were much better than this one. Just tasted like another macro swill pale lager to me.

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.
