Just about as ordinary as one can get. If it were labeled Bud Light, I would have no complaints, but it is not so labeled. I expect more from producers branding themselves as 'craft beers'.

12oz bottle poured into a pint

A- pours a clear golden color with a small fuzzy white head that reduces to a thin film on top, leaving behind a few patches of lace

S- smells like an adjunct lager, grainy, toasted malt, just a hint of grassy hop

T- a bit of sweet malt up front, eventually turns to some notes of toasted grains, faint grassy hops on the finish

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a creamy finish

O- this is about as plain as a pale ale can get, marketing towards bid light drinkers

Not bad I suppose, but it's still a little hoppy for me or again it's just the wrong type of hops.

Tasting notes: Light colored with off-white lacing, flat, slightly doughy. Crackery, slightly buttery. Recalls apricot/peach and candied lemon, a more prominent vitamin-like yeast note than in other Red Hook ales (ESB and Long Hammer IPA). Quite sweet and moderately grassy in the finish. More homogenized, rather dull, but unoffensive ale from Red Hook. New brewery to Alberta and unlikely to make waves.

Golden color, clear, thin head...the aroma is moderately malty with a little grain. Some citrus. The beer is moderately bitter and had a grainy, dry maltiness. Medium to light in body with a clean finish. It is an average, everyday ale. Not particularly remarkable.

12oz single bottle - not quite getting the name here - is it that you can actually hear this beer - oh, I see, it's brewed in collaboration with a heretofore unknown to me American sportscaster.

This beer pours a clear, pale golden amber hue, with two fingers of puffy, caked, and somewhat bubbly off-white head, which leaves some streaky hovering island mass lace around the glass as it slowly recedes.

It smells of bready, doughy pale malt, a lesser biscuity caramel sweetness, muddled kitchen table citrus notes, a mildly dank pine resin acerbity, some tame hard water flintiness, and further leafy, floral hops. The taste is grainy, bready pale malt, dry toffee biscuits, pithy grapefruit and orange, dead yeast, and mealy herbal, leafy hops.

The carbonation is fairly low-key, and plain in its amateur frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and kind of clammy via a certain work-a-day smoothness. It finishes off-dry, the lingering pale and ethereal caramel malts having little truck with the bland west-coast aspirant hops.

An easy enough to drink, but a bit harder to actually recommend APA, the lack of pep and/or verve not doing it or me any favours. If I had to make a last-second call on this one, in the spirit of the marketing, I'd have to say, take a knee and run out the clock, son.

Decent color and clarity, but with some fun little flecks. I'm always amazed at how unpale pale ales tend to be. Noteworthy is the presence of grapefruit-like aroma when first poured (into English style pint glass). This quickly wore off and gave way to maltiness with perhaps faint citrus, and wasn't detectable on my palate beyond what I might ordinarily expect from just about any hoppy ale. Something someone who wasn't an extreme or even moderate hophead could easily take a shine to. A slightly watery mouthfeel compared to certain other pales I've had, but not disheartening. I was in the mood for something with medium/low alcohol content and this fit the bill.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very weak, just a touch of malts. Taste is also very light, malts, a slight bit of hops, nothing offensive, just not much there. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

This should be a 5 just for what it is - a beer to chug while watching the game, and it won't knock you out half way through. It's actually not bad at all.

12 ounce stubby bottle poured into a pilsner glass. 173 A2 1120 is printed on the bottle of the bottle.

Pours clear with little fish food flakes floating around (unintentionally alliterative). Amber in color, with a smallish white head that is sustained by a significant amount of carbonation. Smell is slightly yeasty, fairly vague. Not offensive.

Taste is nutty, sweet, smooth, with a light bitter aftertaste. Not as bad as I was expecting.

Mouthfeel is thickish. Overall, not too bad.

Clear Golden color, looks good so far. Head is decent and lacing is sticky and nice. Aroma is very light with some malt, bread and a very light hint of citrus. Taste is ok, with hints of very light hops, some malt and a hint of citrus. Unfortunately, this beer is slightly weak in flavor and feels like slightly watered down. Not bad, but definitely not great !!

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Hot route! This stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises mil citrus zest, a hint of grass, and a firm backbone of sweet biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, with a vague hint of greenery tossed in the mix, though it's for naught, as everything comes through slightly muted, watered-down. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a wet feel. Overall, a somewhat mediocre pale ale that doesn't bring much flavor or character to the table at all. I could see drowning some hot wing burn with this, but not much else.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden yellow with a little fine sediment floating around and a frothy off white head that laces fairly well.

S: Light floral hops, a touch of citrus, a bit earthy, with some light malt.

T: Floral hops, some citrus too with orange and lemon zest, with some light biscuity malt.

M: On the lighter side of medium body, moderate carbonation. Quit drinkable.

O: Nothing super special, but a solid session brew. I might actually go for this instead of some session IPA's I've had.

Pours a hazy dark yellow/light orange color.
Faint smell. Sweet grains and floral hops.
The taste follows the smell. Slightly sweet, thin malt backbone
with a mild hop bitterness.
Watery mouthfeel.
This is just a nice, easy drinking ale and is exactly what Red Hook claims it to be.
A crushable beer that you can drink a few of when watching the game.

Carbonated, crisp sharp taste. Almost bubbles when you swallow.

3.35/5  rDev +0.9%

Pours a clean looking golden color, not too much head but there's plenty of bubbles constantly rising from the bottom of the glass.

Smell has a mostly sweet malty aroma with very little hop balance, almost a corn-like aroma.

Taste starts out with a mild hop presence which is a good start but quickly takes a back seat to the malt backing, not overly complex or interesting but it is easy to drink, carbonation is medium and very soft, has a very slick buttery feel in the mouth.
