Squatters pale ale pours a nice burnt orange color with a light airy head. The aroma is definitely hop with a slight fruity undertone. It taste true pale malt with nice hop balance not too much, just enough for the style (more would be better). The overall rating doesn't do it justice but it lacks in some areas.

Pours a very nice slightly hazy golden yellow color, nice carbonation, nice one finger white head, with some nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty with some very nice hop notes, slight citrus. The taste is malty/hoppy, with some nice citrus notes. Medium body. Slightly dry finish. Drinkable, not bad.

A - pours a cloudy rust orange with just a little bit of foam

S - light malt aroma along with citrus and piney hops

T - piney hops with hints of citrus coming through, a little weaker than the smell led me to expect

M/D - nice flavor and good drinkability, could easily have several at a time

Sampled at the brewery pub in SLC.

Catty hop aroma (chinook?) On an pale orange yellow beer with very little head.

Flavor is a sharp lemony hop attack that instantly wicks through the whole mouth right up the teeth and under the gums. Just a touch of a corn and honey swwet malt in the background hangs on in sweet desperation before being run over by a mack truck of drying hops.

I think this is the same as the Full Suspension Pale Ale by Squatters.

It poured a light coppers color with a white head that quickly turned to a film on top of the beer with no lacing. The aroma is huge. Full of what I would guess to be Cascade hops.The smell really add to the tasting experience. The taste was a nice blend of malt and hops. A bitter aftertaste that wasnt overpowering. Its a medium bodied beer. I really enjoyed this brew. I wasnt dissapointed.

Medium brown color, slightly cloudy, medium head. A full-bodied, unfiltered pale ale. Nicely malty and fully hopped. Malts are slightly sweet, but hop bitterness dominates. Nice flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Unfiltered pale ale. Like most of the local Utah beers I've had, this is better on-tap than in the bottle. Pours a hazy orange-yellow with a mediocre white head. Looks better than it is! Smell is meager malt, but citrusy, fresh hops are detectable. Taste is very lean on the malt flavors--light toffee. Moderate to big citrus hop flavor throughout, not much going on here complexity-wise(culprit: low alcohol level?). With the said low abv. All in all, a decent Utah micro, expecially when fresh, for the citrus hop aromas can carry it then.

Note: this is a re-review

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dusky orangeish - yellow, portly beige head with nice lace to coat the glass. Wonderful "Dry Hopped" nose, with malt undertones, a touch of citrus also present. Start is malt sweet, the top is puny, Finish is adequately hopped, lightly acidic, and has droughty aftertaste. Drinkable, but as with most the beers from this brewery, it suffers from lack of "Body", which forces me to downgrade it a bit. Having said that, it is not a bad drinking beer and many "non-beer" drinkers might like it, as a change of pace.

Squatters Fulls Suspension pale ale is as a hazy unfiltered offering presents with a light golden color. The body is lighter than most American pale ales I have tried. Neither malt nor hops really come out to the senses. The spiciness of the hops comes out only at the very end finish of the glass.

I had this right after the dissapointing polygamy porter. So that may have influenced the tasting. Golden copper color, ok head. Decent hoppy floral smell. Slipped down easy, nice hoppy finish. It was a step up from the last beer, and proved to be refreshing. I'm not going to go looking for it, though. Too bad I was stuck in Utah.

2.98/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Hazy, dark yellow hue w/ a thick and persistent head. Citrusy hop nose a bit of biscuit malt in aroma. Clean, light malt flavors, moderate hop bitterness. Dry in flavor and a touch bland, due to the lack of malt character and hop flavor. Allthough not flawed, this is a weak pale that falls prey to Utah alcohol laws.

2.5/5  rDev -21.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Presentation: 12oz twist-off brown bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: A very cloudy golden amber beer with an extremely healthy frothy, patchy, creamy white head.

Smell: A very aromatic hop bouquet of fresh American hops. Touch of malty grain in the nose too.

Taste: Not very malty, with no real sweetness. Mouthfeel is sort of smooth and creamy, for a brief moment. Body is thin and light. A very dry, crisp beer with a high level of mineral flavours. Hops are raw, oily, with a watery, salty, mildly prickly citrus rind bite. No real discernable malt flavour, however there are plenty of grain and tannin flavours (both from the malt and hops) that carry through right into the finish.

Notes: Not a whole hell of a lot going on here. A very thin, weak, unfiltered American Pale Ale. A rather blah beer, unfortunately.
