COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American style pale ale, this brew is hopped four times using plentiful quantities of Cascade and Columbus hops. The flavor is balanced by a subtle maltiness obtained from five varieties of malted barley and a slight fruitiness, to produce a classic beer in the style of the Pacific Northwest. A clean crisp ale with distinctive hop aroma.

Copper in color, white fluffy head with good retention. Floral aroma, grapefruit. Small bubbles that clense the palate, wonderful with beef stew - clears the fat from the tongue. Nice mild malt character and a lingering hop. A ery good beer.

Bottle to glass in Tucson. This was the beer I had prior to my first time officiating a wedding....as I was marrying my buddy at 10 a.m. in AZ to beat the heat. Notwithstanding the happy event, this was a tough pale ale, with too much sweetness and lacking any hop complexity.

Draft at brewpub. Clear orange gold, big frothy white head. Not as aromatic as is flavorful. Light. Crisp. Semi dry. Mild bitter. Nice Northwest hop character. Simple. Safe. Does the job.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a nice malt and hops smell Appearance- this is a murky amber colored brew with a small off-white head. Taste- Has a yeast flavor and malt mixture, not bad. Palate- This is a medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation. Overall- Not a bad beer, slightly above average. I would drink this again.

Bottle 12fl.oz.

[ As Nimbus Pale Ale ].
Clear medium orange yellow color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, pale malt, moderate hoppy, citrus, some strange fruity ? Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light to moderate bitter with a long duration, fruity, pale malt, and again the strange fruit ? Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft.

In honesty this one most of been infected...so take it for what it's worth. Foggy orange color. Super tart and green apple. Little to no hop distinction. Maybe I'll try and rate some other time. Of course, maybe not.
