Cask conditioned on tap - Orange tint, okay head but fine lacing. medium-bodied. Fruity (berry and pear) and hoppy aroma. Tangy palate with buttery smoothness. Taste, wheat bread hint besides the hops. Lingering bitterness but not overpowering. Fine ale. 1FastSTi (3361) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2006 Poured to a bronze/copper colored body with a rocky white head and excellent lacing. The aroma has some good APA characteristics. Pine and grapefruit hop with some decent malt. However, the aroma is a touch weak. Perhaps it’s the glassware/bar atmosphere. The flavor is nicely hoppy, some malt. Typical APA. The palate is rich and full, smooth. A good beer in the APA family.

Very hoppy and harsh for an APA which is great as far as I am concerned. Bold flavor - not disguised by citrus or fruity taste. You drink this one to snap yourself out of a lager rut. More malt than most pales. andyhwcinc (1884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2010
As part of a sampler at the Milwaukee Ale House in Grafton, WI. Thoroughly enjoyed this one, nice subtle pale ale that wasn’t overtly hoppy, clean finish, not too bitter. Would definitely try again. cbfobes (2885) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours hazy amber with fluffy white head, has sweet but yet hoppy aroma to it, has flavor of malt over hops, nice example of a pale ale.

Bottle courtesy of nuplastikk, thanks! Hazy bright golden color, large fluffy white head, good lacing. Aroma of hay and white pepper. Taste is straightforward bitter, but not too bitter, with a dry finish. Decent stuff. ddemmingjr (800) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2012
On draft at Barleycorn. Pours hazy burnt orange, frothy tan head that persists. Aroma grapefruit, pine, resin, earth, bread malts. Lighter bodied with a nice balance of bread malts, citrus hop bitterness without being over the top. Nice session beer.

Aroma is citrus, fruit and a mild hint of pine/resin. The flavor is citrus, fruit, malts and a sour/tart twang in the finish. brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2003
Malty slightly carmel aroma. Really thought I would smell more hops. Malty thick first taste sort of a bitter aftertaste then quickly goes to dry. A little more hoppiness and this would be a real favorite Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Tap: copper with a decent head. Citrus/pine hop aroma. flavor the same with some malt to balance. Nice hop bite at the end. Decent pale ale for sure.
