DarkElf (3061) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 1, 2005
(Draft: LaConner Brewing Company in LaConner, WA) Lightly malty and slightly woody nose is somewhat balanced by a very gentle hop aroma. Pretty mildly flavored as well, lightly malty, a bit earthy, but though the mild bitterness of the hops can easily balance the malt, actual hoppy flavor is tough to discern. Golden colored, slightly hazy, and topped by a smallish off-white head that fades to a ring and leaves only a few traces of lace on the glass. Pretty lame and generic for a pale ale, lacking anything that generates some excitement.

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Draught at the brewery
Clear orange color. Butter and popcorn nose, with a similar flavor: pale malts, earthy, butter and old socks - complete with a little bit of cardboard and wet dog. Something went wrong here, or is it just me?

Oakes (16949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2005
Draught, at the brewpub

Orangey-amber colour with a slight haze. Soft aroma of breadcrusty malts and limey-kumquatty hops. These are Pallisades, a variety Im not familiar with. Slightly orangey, toasty, nutty flavours. Bitterness is moderate, finish is balanced. Its not a show-stopper, but its well-made.
