Take what you will out of old tasting notes from a few hours before a bachelor party.

Decent looking red beer, good head, surprising lace cling going on. Aroma was not hoppy, smelled of peat moss.

Taste, better than the lack of hop aroma, but still, the local hops don't seem to generate much of a hop taste. Just imparts some bitterness from a longer hop boil. This beer seemed to impress the people who don't like hops or drink much craft beer. Tastes pretty woody.

On-tap at their only location.
Golden beer with amber highlights, topped by an average head, with average retention and some lacing as it goes down.
Aroma and taste are quite similar, nicely hopped, earthy and floral, but poorly balanced.
Nice carbonation, crisp body. A refreshing beer but not a lot of complexity or attributes.

Hazy, deep copper/auburn tone. Good sized bubbly yellow tinged head. Good staying power and excellent lace properties. Nice aroma. Thick, malty sweetness laced with pungent and lemony hop aromas. Very interesting flavor profile. Very good, but interesting. Rich and caramelly malt backbone. this APA is almost more malt centric than hop centric. But it's a very enjoyable malt presence. Hops are there as well, flowery in nature. And the hop bitterness liners for a bit, but the malt dominates in a good way in this APA. Medium full body. Light carbaonation. Very drinkable and flavorful.

I think this batch was contaminated. So, this review only applies to the specific beer I drank. It had a cloudy brown appearance. It had a floral hop finish. But, the thing I didn't like about it was the distinctive butterscotch yeasty ester-y flavor. I think I read that butterscotch ester is a sign of contamination. So, that extra ester punch made it deviate too much from the pale ale style. So I can't say I liked it, I'd try again and find a better batch.

3.73/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pour: darkish strawberry-amber under a smallish khaki cream head fizzling quickly to a skim.

Nose: pine resin hops over burnt caramel malts.

Taste: nicely bitter pine resin hops, sweet caramel malts, berry/fruit sweetness, with a nice lingering hops bitterness

Feel: almost sappy, quite rich for the style with crisp, biting carbonation

Drinkability/Overall: a little rich in the mouth for extended drinking, but a more assertively hoppy and ultimately more enjoyable version of their "Hop Ale".

The Bucky Beaver Pale Ale arrived with a deep amber, slightly reddish hue and a nice creamy, sticky white head. Aromas of sweet caramel, slightly toasty malts with a biting green herbal hop presence. Almost a touch spicy. Menu states this is brewed with Styrian Goldings.

First sip brings a clean toasted caramel maltiness upfront followed by a nice blast of hoppiness. Good bitterness runs across the palate. Green, grassy hops on the way down. Overall a tasty brew.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation. A tasty brew that's easy to drink. I could see myself sitting down to a few pints of this one. Sorta like the English hop version of the Kilbourn Hop Ale.
