COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale Pony Pale Ale The Pale Pony originated as a “Portland Pale Project” recipe and it was a hit among beer drinkers, so we brought it back for the summertime. We essentially took our famous Workhorse IPA recipe and shrunk it to create a beer that is sessionable yet flavorful. Pale Pony is light with a rich malt body and a mild hop bitterness — just like the Workhorse, it remains balanced and has much of that grapefruit, tropical, and citrus hop flavors. Find it in 22 oz bottles soon! Beer Stats Alcohol Content: 5.2% IBUs: 35 Original Gravity: 12º Plato Malt: Premium 2-row, Crystal Malt Hops: CTZ, Simcoe, Amarillo Where to Find It: On tap and in 22 oz bottles at our NE and SE Portland, Oregon brewery and pubs AND in 22 oz bottles where better beer is sold throughout Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia.

Lagerboy (2221) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2015
Bomber. Clear yellow golden, firm lasting white foam. Citric fruity floral aroma and taste, nicely balanced with leaner semi-sweet c-malt, mild grapefruity finish. Average carbonation, light-medium, well hopped. APA or ISA, it’s a gooder. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Ferris (16276) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2015
Draft -’Sweet light grapefruit citrus notes. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light, sweet citrus and a small appropriate bitterness. Very well done.

mcberko (18572) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2015
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear pale golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is heavy on the floral hops, with some citrus and pine in there, as well as some biscuity malt. Flavour is similar, with lots of fresh piney and floral hops that coat the palate. Just enough malt backing to keep things in check. Very hoppy finish without any astringency. Very nice.

22 oz bottle poured. Bottled labeled as an American Pale ale. That’s what I’m going with, especially since I’ve had it, and I’ve never really bothered with the session IPA term. Isn’t a session IPA just a pale ale anyway? I don’t know, I’m no expert. Pours a clear golden color with a lasting foam head. Grassy hop forward aroma. Light flavor, subtle grassy hops, citrus. Would be great in the summertime. Not sure why I just now picked this up. Good beer here.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle:   Dark dirty straw, thick, strong carbonation, huge pillowy off-white head, sticky lacing.   Semi-sweet pith and peel on the nose.   Similar on the tongue.   Very faint grainy or earthiness on the backside.   Mild bitterness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not a real bright example, but decent.   Finishes with a musty pith and peel like bitterness, a very soft bitterness.   Lingering soily bits.   Tiz OK.

On tap at the PDX Airport location. Pours a clear orange color with a medium white head. A big sweet fruity nose. Big sweet pine and citrus, fairly tropical, some crystal. Clean. Solid.

bhensonb (15612) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Always good to be #10. Bomber from Belmont Station. Pours gold (coppery in dimmer light) with a slight, transient white head. Aroma is very slight. Hops and malt, but too light for me to parse. Med body or nearly. Flavor is slightly sweet roasty malt, with some rather fruity hop. Having just had the Gilgamesh Hoot Owl Session IPA, I’d say this is not really very "high in hops". Still, it is decent and quite drinkable. But this pony pales in comparison.

ARH (1134) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2014
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is lightly woodsy without much else going on. It’s light amber color is effervescent with an abundant creamy white head and loads of sheet lace. The taste is medium bitter complimented by a very light sweetness. The dry, light body is thin with a soft, fizzy carbonation. Flavors of mellow, bitter citrus rind and crisp pine finish the drink and leave a dry, refreshing, astringent, and clean pine aftertaste.

Skunky aroma. Good hoppy flavor, but, of course, the alcohol content is lacking.
