2.88/5  rDev -18.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A) 3.5- Pours a nice orangy gold. A small head quickly dissolves over the surface of this beer.

S) 2.25- Little aroma to speak of. It has a slight hoppiness.

T) 3.0- Medium malts and hops... The initial hops seem to compete for flavor prominance, despite their differences. There is a tanginess to that effect. The light bitter finish is nice.

M) 3.25- Very light overall. The hop effect starts slow, grows, and lingers awhile.

12 oz. bottle tried 22 Apr 2010.

This is the Wyld Organic Extra Pale Ale, guessing it is the same so reviewing it here.

Note: got this at Liquor Mart, was almost a year old when purchased (obviously did not pay attention to bottling code which is pretty clearly labeled). Caveat emptor and all that (damn you Liquor Mart, wtf?!).

Served in an Avery shaker pint. Almost no head. Lightly carbonated. Slight bit of sediment, light amber color. Aroma is lightly grainy, a bit of sour mash. Light sweet graininess throughout. Finish is a bit drier with a mineral water aftertaste. Moderate ethanol. Medium to light body.

Tastes like hippies... stale Mormon hippies.

12oz. bottle poured into a nonic.

(A)- Pours a pale orange color. Produced a small white head of froth, Minimal lace.

(S)- A nice drying pine needle and a subtle yeasty lemon and orange citrus.

(T)- Some lemon and orange citrus with caramel malt. Some pine shows up, but quickly flows into a heavy yeast spiciness.

(M)- A good carbonation level. The balance is fair, but kind of strange with that heavy yeast bit in there.

(D)- Not bad, but perhaps a tad disjointed.

Humble, simple bottles and a nice looking pour lead to a very good first impression; subtle flowery hops, nice carbonation, applesauce and summer... The impression fades quickly with each passing sip until you are left with a granular, watery beer that you just want to finish and get away from. I think this beer would benefit if closer attention were paid to the beer's wyld, extra and ale aspects and less focus was on the pale part.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a clear, yellow-orange body with a thin ring of bubbles on top.

Smell: Citrus scent steps aside as some watered down malts shamble by.

Taste: Thin, vapid maltiness and no apparent sweetness. Citrusy hops and an accompanying grapefruit taste along with a medium bitterness. Lacks that malt backbone all the way to the finish that can't come a moment too soon.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Average at best. This one definitely won't be catching on like wildfire.

2.98/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 2 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a light harvest orange…no real bubbles, no real head…(2/5)

Smell: A nice mix of malt straightness and citrus hops…it’s funny, some smells I get way more orange/lemon and some are very malty…it’s got a really inviting aroma…(3.25/5)

Taste: Definitely extra pale…there’s like a pale beginning, a pale middle and a pale end with some citrus hops…blunt pale malts through and through here…a little, tiny bit of bitterness does do enough to add some additional flavor and make it a drinkable brew…(3/5)

Mouthfeel: light and crisp with little carbonation…it sorta comes and goes…it’s a bit watery…(2.75/5)

Overall: Definitely an extra pale ale…the flavor is good and it’s certainly a drinkable beer…as a hops guy, I am always waiting for that hoppy kick somewhere along the way and this brew just doesn’t have that…and it’s not supposed to…but what it does bring to the table is a fresh malt flavor that truly can stand alone…it is also certified organic, which I appreciate…(3/5)

Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with a medium slowly dissipating white head, some light lacing. Aroma and taste of citrus floral hops, biscuit a malt and some grassy notes. Palate is a medium body with moderate carbonation. Finishes with some biscuit malt , and some citrus and floral hops. Flavor seems a bit light for the style. Overall an ok brew

12 oz single from Roths Sunnyslope market. $1.59 HUge out of control head on a gentle pour..when it settles daown its a clear golden ale with a large thick white head. Aroma, grassy,doughy slight grapefruit hop, nice enough. Taste grassy,some semi sweet malt, slight bitterness in the end. Palate is thin well carbonated and good for drinking in quantity. Overall average but the low alc and calories make this a good choice for summer bbq drinking
