Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Pale Ale is a complex hybrid between a West-Coast Pale Ale and a British-Style Pale Ale. An abundance of Cascade Hops gives this beer a citrusy, floral nose. We use a high percentage of Caramel Malt to provide a stark contrast to the hoppy front palate, giving our pale ale a smooth, malty finish.

3.58/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottle says best by November 2012. The beer frothed up out of the bottle the moment I opened it, so hopefully it's not infected or anything.

Appearance: rich orange hue with a moderate haze and a good effervescence. Head poured a thick finger of pillowy ivory foam which is leaving a nice lace on the glass as it slowly dissipates.

Smell: sweet malt aroma with a twinge of biscuit and a moderate helping of citrusy and earthy hops. Not bad.

Taste: sweet and biscuity malt along with more of those citrusy hops. The flavor is really right in line with the aroma. Not bad at all, but not precisely to my personal taste.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a good level of carbonation and a very nice creaminess. I like it.

Overall: a decent enough and well-crafted beer. I would personally not go out of my way to have this again, but then again I would not turn one down.

3.51/5  rDev +2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Great bubbly aroma and visual appearance and very crisp taste, however didn't excite me as much as I had hoped though it's flavor intrigued me to want to taste more of the flavor! I really respect a crisp taste on a beer even though it is not their most well known beer, so I will definitely try their stronger IPA next, good things expected. This one was a little disappointing especially living so close to the city
