This pours out as a clear looking yellowish orange color. The head is white and settles pretty quickly. The smell of the beer has a good balance of Malta and citrusy hops on the nose. The flavors give off bright elements of lemon and grapefruit. The mouthfeel of the beer is smooth, light bodied and easy going. Overall this is a pretty refreshing beer. I can see myself enjoying this more in the warmer months.

3.38/5  rDev +0.6%

Appearance: pale yellow in color with a 2" head that lasts a long time. Nice lace sticks to the glass.

Smell: citrus and grassy tones are all you can detect.

Taste: definite biscuit and grassy profile, with lemon zest, pineapple, and some softer grapefruit tones. Bitterness is moderate overall.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp from start to finish. Short lasting aftertaste.

Overall: an easy to drink APA that leans more toward the citrus tones. Worthy of a try.

3.18/5  rDev -5.4%

Poured from the bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a finger of off white head that fades to a ring around the edge of the glass and leaves a hint of lacing. 4.5

Smell: Bready malt with a hint of sweetness and some citrus peel hops. 3

Taste: This beer is malty up front and very bitter in the finish. The problem is that there is no real transition between the two. The citrus peel hops just blow up and crush the tongue. 3

Mouthfeel: Medium body with lots of fluffy carbonation and a dry finish. 4

Overall: Almost really good but ends up being just ok. The hops just come out of nowhere and crush everything else. 3

A – Pale yellow color with a rocky 1 finger white head. Head recedes quickly and leaves a nice white ring of bubbles around the glass.

S – Light citrus from the hops a very minimal light malt.

T – Light hoppy flavor, nothing over powering.

M – Light bodied beer. Carbonation was a little on the light side.

O – My buddy loves Fegleys and I got this bottle from him. I was happy to give it a try but there a couple other pale ales that I would rather buy on a regular basis.

Poured into a pint glass, this ale has a very pale golden straw color, and a minimal amount of fizzy white head. There is some sticky lacing on the glass, but that's about all the foam this one's got. The aroma is mainly full of sharp pine and grassy hops with some bitter grapefruit as well.

The flavor follows the nose, starting with refreshing light grassy hop flavor. The grassy hops mix with a very slightly sweet carafoam malt before the more bitter grapefruit and pine hops kick in. These flavors finish it out leaving you with a lingering bitterness.

Always Sunny Pale Ale has a very light crisp body and mouthfeel, which is definitely a plus for making it a session beer. But it's not really that special of a pale ale, and for the price, you would probably be just as satisfied with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Not to mention saving yourself about $5 for a sixer.

12oz bottle received in trade (thanks millerbuffoon). No bottle dating.

Pale yellow/straw elixir poured into SA glass.

1 inch white foam settles to 1/4 inch during tasting. Copious lacing.

Nice aroma of lemon zest and oranges. Not much pine. A bit of the malt biscuit comes through.

Smooth bitterness with flower and citrus up front and notes of pepper at the back. A bit of a malt aftertaste.

Well carbonated, oily.

Though a year round brew, it seems more a nice summer APA.

1.8/5  rDev -46.4%

Bottle - decanted into a pint tumbler

A - mediocare head...quickly fades...mild lacing

S - bready malts, faint lemon-grassy citrus, not impressive for an APA

T - Same as nose with some not so pleasant astringent bitterness. Very boring. Not a whole lot going on

M - Slightly soapy oily quailty...creamy...good mouthfeel but thats about all it has going for it

Overall - The second bad pale ale I'm reviewing today. I had high hopes for this one too as Fegley has produced some great hoppy brews. I suggest sticking to them on tap and as fresh as possible (probably only at the brewery). Their bottled offerings have been disappointing. I will not be buying any more fegley's bottles.

3.08/5  rDev -8.3%

Clear sunniness in body with white bubbly overhead. Smells of lemongrass and pine. Light flavors of lemons, slight pine, and citrus and rind. A swooping bitterness towards the finish and then cleans up. Light in body with light carbonation. Light and clean.

4.13/5  rDev +22.9%

A yellow amber color with good carbonation activity, clear and bright with a very ample white froth on top and seriously blanketing gobs of lacing left behind. The aroma is unmistakable pissy hops, sharp and citrusy over thick biscuit grain. A happy encounter for the hop enthusiast. Definitely more resembling an IPA. The flavor brings a very grassy grain hops, biscuit brightness, befitting the name. This is fairly light in body with a summery, refreshing feel, full of luscious carbonation. The flavor seems a bit one dimensional but it’s drinkable enough and it reveals more bready grains as you go through it. A tad watery but overall, for pure hay flavored grassy hop pleasure it’s quite a decent choice.
