Love Alewerks and decided to give its pale ale a try. Here goes:

A: OK, nothing special. The beer pours a cloudy orange with very little head. There's modest lacing but nothing special.

S: Again, OK. I can easily detect the presence of Chinook and Cascade hops, making this a definite American Pale Ale (as opposed to the English styles). The beer smells of lemons, grapefruit and orange peel; not much malt character as the hops predominate.

T: Very good for what it is. Very mild, a definite pale ale (and not an IPA). Can taste a light malt backbone with a faint smattering of Pacific Northwest hops. The hops impart a taste of lemons, orange peel, pine and grapefruit. Very drinkable.

M: OK, kind of resembles the appearance. Not a lot of carbonation or protein content. Goes down smoothly with little character.

O: A nice beer. Nothing to brag about but it does its job well. Might get it again.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Fairly clear color with a touch of orange to it.
S: Smelled a little skunky when I paid attention to it, otherwise nothing too out of line.
T: Has a pleasant bite, not too much of an alcohol taste.
M: Nice tingling though a little flat. Head dissipated quickly, but could also be the crappy glass I pulled from the hotel room dishwasher.
O: A good, drinkable beer. I could put a few more of these down at will, though I probably won't go out of my way to seek it out.
