ChainGangGuy (4826) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Appearance: Pours a near clear, light copper-toned body with a relatively fast-lived, white head. Smell: Moderately sweet-scented, bready aroma with a hint of toast, if the toaster was set to the lowest setting. Hop scents arent too terribly effusive, but give you notes of florals and juicy citrus fruits. Taste: Pale malts, lightly bready, and lightly tasting of sweetish honey. Slightly floral introduction to the citrusy (lemon and sweet orange) hops, low bitterness, and ultra low hint of grassiness. Drying, soft, faintly bitter finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Does its job as being a clean, fitting, easy-drinking APA.

Orange/gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Very light citrus and caramel malt aroma. Sweet caramel flavor with a light citrus bitter. Medium bodied but a tad fizzy.

BiddleBrau (1172) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Clear light golden color, minimal head. I didnt get much aroma here. Nice hoppy flavor, dry, not much malt profile. Slightly cloying but ok for style.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 26, 2011
(12oz bottle). Pours a clear pale golden color with white head. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is cardboard, grass, hay and some faint hops. Taste is a sweet malt backbone with some hop bitterness following. Medium bodied with oily texture. Finish is bitter. An ok beer that is probably past its prime a bit. Will need to re-rate at the brewery location for a fresher example.

TURDFERGUSON (4051) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2011
Bottle, thanks Dakine. Hazy orange with dense, meringue-like small bubbled white head. Nose of sweet malts, and light hops. Kinda smells like a homebrew. Lots of prickly carbonation attack the mouth, some malt, very light hops. It doesnt taste old, just strange and not like any pale ale Ive ever had. The carbonation is more akin to Belgian like Chouffe or Hoegaarden. Tastes like an overcarbonated Belgian white. So as a pale ale, it fail.

On tap at the Oak Creek Pub and Grill in Sedona, Docs Pale Ale went perfectly with the BLT I had for lunch. A bright, citrus-filled aroma led to a medium body brew with medium bitterness.

nuplastikk (5829) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2011
12oz bottle. Gusher, smells infected...oddly sour. Takes a few minutes just to get it into the glass. Dry and earthy, with some gingery grapefruit tones. Grapefruit shows itself more and more in the taste and aroma, really not unlike pink grapefruit juice at times. Were this to be a grapefruit beer, Id say they nailed it, a standard APA this is not. Easy drinking, sort of grows on you. Interesting if they consistently make it this way, otherwise an interesting infection.
