We took our time to get the finely-tuned balance of Persnickety Pale just right. The clean orange-peel character brought on by Yakima Valley Chinook, Cascade and Centennial hops balances perfectly with a soft caramel malt profile, built entirely from locally malted Washington grain.

22 oz Bottle. Pours an amberish brown with light off-white head. Aroma of herbal hops. Taste is of roasted malts with a hint of coffee. Slight bitterness in the finish. Not bad, but not amazing.

Cant quite be sure how good this was and how much of it was the setting: on tap at the Lake Crescent lodge, sitting on the pier watching sunset. Doesnt matter I guess. A memorable beer.

On tap at Brouwers. Pours a cloudy copper color. Nice balance on the nose, and a flavor something like a dry-hopped Mannys. Goes down very easy. Nice.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Hazed medium amber pour, thin white head. Very soft nose that has a herbal, slightly caramelly smell that comes across as sweet tea. Still gives the same impression when drunk, with a bit of lemon rind flavor, floral notes, some resin on the finish. Was a pleasant pairing for burritos, but not quite what Im usually after in a pale.

This is a crisp pale ale with a smooth hoppiness. Golden amber in color with a pleasant aroma.

after4ever (7863) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2011
22. Pours a murky dark amber with a loose and sudsy tan head and plenty of eggy lacing. Balls-out iced tea nose, super dense and leafy tea notes. Creamy medium body with lively carb, tons of iced tea, some toast, and bits of pine. Mild piney resin finish. Not bad, but way more on the crystal malt side of the universe than I generally go.

Aubrey (3515) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2011 Solid pale ale. Nice caramel hue with a decent head. Malts are rich -- toasty, bready and cracker-like, with only a subtle caramel sweetness. Hops are balanced with earthy hints of herbs and grass. Grapefruit-like bitterness in the aftertaste.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 1, 2011
Bottle: Pours a nice orange color with a nice fluffy white head. The nose is very citrusy with a big snap of orange and fragrant caramel and toasty malts. The flavor isnt bitter, but is dominantly hoppy with a nice citrus and grapefruit note. Finishes very balanced and orangey with nice sweet lingering honey note. Very nice.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Bottle:   Darker amber, a little dirty, some chunks settling to the bottom of my glass, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Soft hoppy nose, malts a little musty, very faint overcooked vegetable.   Not a real hop oriented beer, its there but not very bright.   Remains musty, a little stale and wet hops perhaps, some cardboard.   Luckily any sort of overcooked vegetable is very minor, and only shows up in the back.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   I guess if you dont like too much hops, this would be a paler Pale Ale.   A little off in the nose and on the tongue though, comes across as a bit of a homebrew, well sorta.   Its okay...
