On tap at LaConner, pours a clear pale golden yellow with a small white head. Nose is fairly restrained, with a light spicy hoppiness. Flavour is crisp and spicy in the hop department, with just enough dry crackery malt to back. Competently brewed but nothing special. fiulijn (20993) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014

Herbal aroma. Cloudy, yellow colour, white head, good lace. Light sweet, light bready, light bitter, hint of apricot, medium bodied.
This was kind of unimpressive considering the IPA was so delicious. Has some citrus hop notes as well as a simple malt body that was actually kind of weak, and had just a hint of bitterness in the finish. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Slightly cloudy medium amber with bright candied orange highlights. Mild citrus nose--orange and tangerine. Light, somewhat watery body. Could probably do with a bit more carbonation. Mushy mid-palate, caramel and oranges. Not much finish. jcwattsrugger (12507) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2007

8/18/2007: The color of LaConner Pale is hazy pale yellow with a slightly orange hue to it. There is also a small, forthy white head on top initially. Pale and graining malt are mostly noticeable in the aroma. The flavor is also pale grainy malt along with some toasted malt, a hint of butter, and an accompanying moderate bitterness. The finish is dry and spicy (similar to beers made with rye). The body is medium, but both watering and slightly milky at the same time. I guess a sood way to describe it would be to compate it to the texture of skim milk with droplets of whole milk here and there in it. Overall this was probably my least favorite of the LaConner beers that I sampled...
Draught (5.5% ABV) at LaConner Brewing Company in LaConner, Washington. Rating #5 for this beer...
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy amber, creamy head. Mangoish hop aroma. Dry with rounded mouthfeel. Perfumy and bready wit lots of aromatic hops and a really bitter finish.
