Draught at Papago Brewing Co., Scottsdale, AZbu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Copper color. The aroma shows some fruit from the hops. It has a good toffee flavor, with just a bit of sugars, and a quite strong hopping, partially resiny; there are sweet oranges too in the final, and still some sweetness. Sweet American Pale Ale, very pleasant.
(Draught) Pours a clear golden amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of herbs, soap, caramel, toffee, and nuts. Flavor of roasted malt, subtle cocoa, caramel, and light grain. nickd717 (4645) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 18, 2009
GABF 2009. Pours reddish-amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, fruit, bread, and mild citrusy hops. Flavor is similar, lots of caramel malt, bread, citrus hops, and berries. Medium body and somewhat standard palate. Good for the style. Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 7, 2009
tap at Papago. Pours a cranberry juice read with a half finger tan head. The nose is sweet malt, bread and light fruit. The taste is caramel malt, biscuits, fruit with a saccharin/sweet and low type aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel. Kinda boring. nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2009
On tap at Papago. Pours a warm shade of amber with a trim beige head. Not a lot in the aroma. Tastes of caramel, malt, and Chex cereal. A bit simple, but not bad.

Tap at Pap. A mellow if not energetic aroma of sweet malt and flora. Not at all aggressive hops make for not a malt bomb, but an up-front malt profile almost like a red rye. But way more even and creamy, almost like an aged Irish red. Retains brightness nicely. Refreshing. SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 30, 2008
On tap at Papago. Clear, deep amber pour with a medium foamy head that fades slowly and leaves spotty lacing. Aroma of nutty, sweet malt and fruits, with a touch of citrus hops in the background. Flavor is pretty much the same, lots of caramel malt and fruit up front, just a touch of citrus hops on the finish. Nothing wrong with the brew at all, just not really my thing. turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Nice red amber color with a thin white head.
Light aroma of fruits, nuts and plums.
Sweet malty fruitiness flavor with a thin body with a sweet,dry finish. Skyview (5927) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Sampled on draught at the Papago Brewing Company tavern in Phoenix, AZ. Pours a clear reddish amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a thin ring and film top. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, some roasted nuts, toffee and a touch of apricots. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of fruity caramel malt and a touch of citrus hops. Finish is semi-sweet, roasted caramel malt and a touch of dried dark fruit. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 30, 2007
The beer pours from the tap a somewhat fuzzy reddish amber with a decent two finger creamy white head that settles slowly, the lace a concealing sheet upon the glass. Nose has a rich sweet malt aroma, hints of fruit; I would say strawberries, with a bit of apricots, quite fresh and clean. Start is sweet malt with a touch of hops at the back, top is medium in feel. Finish has a sturdy acidity, the hops spicy in their bite, sweet to the end with a dry lingering aftertaste, quite nice beer, easy on the palate.
