From BeerAdvocate Magazine #88 (May 2014):

Clementines, Crackers, Chalky, Tobacco

Light and fluffy Pale Ale that lands on the dry side, nuances like a hint of buttery diacetyl and biscuity grain leave this brew with an interesting edge. Hoppiness comes across as a bit unique though this could just be simply a well put together brew.

Dark copper color with great clarity. There is a half inch of off white head on top. Well there was. Now a fingernail thin layer doesn't quite fully cover the top. Light Brussels lacing. Intense aroma of galaxy hops with a pineapple like scent. The hops are much more subdued than expected after that aroma. It's well balanced with light malt. The mouth is a bit thin but the hops definitely prickle the tongue. (411 characters)

Nice, clear golden amber, with minimal head.

Aroma is funky. Bready and spicy somehow.

Taste is weird and off. Tinge of bitterness. Heavy body but I can't get past the overwhelming gym shorts and perspiration aroma. Revolting.

Maybe this bottle was old or stored in a heated warehouse too long? Will pick up another bottle if I see one to compare. (350 characters)

Zekes is a decent pale ale for sessioning. The beer poured a lighter clear copper with no head and no lace. The scent was slightly malty with some bitter hop flare. The taste is a decent balanced pale ale...sweet malt with bitter hop. Themouthfeel is lighter in body with good so so carbonation. Overall its a good beer....not one for the ages....but good. (356 characters)

12 oz bottle dated 1/30/14 poured into a chalice/pint kinda glass that I dk the name of.

A - pours a nice looking pale orange with moderate head. Decent lacing as you drink.

S - I really don't get anything in the nose. Maybe some mild straw and a touch of sweetness. Some lemon. Nothing too exciting, but nothing off-putting either - which is probably what they're going for.

T - So much more pleasant than the nose. You get a little bit of everything. Some moderate grassy/piney notes finishing with a lemony sweetness. Finishes very abruptly and dry, which I'm not too crazy about. But definitely leaves you wanting more.

M - Mild carbonation and a very solid mouthfeel. Some nice body to it.

O - There's definitely some room for improvement, but I'm a fan. I could see myself drinking quite a few of these in the summer. (832 characters)

I picked this up as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Plainfield, IL, making this single 12oz bottle $1.67. No freshmess date.

The beer poured a clear amber color with just a ½-finger of white head on top that lasted awhile and left good lacing.

Big, fruity, citrus aroma.

Mostly tropical citrus flavors but with a touch of tart green apples as well. There is a mild honey-like sweetness to this and a very slight hop bitterness as well. It's a unique flavor when everything comes together.

Light to medium mouthfeel with lower than average carbonation.

Don't hate it, don't love it. Makes a decent session beer at just 5.1% (669 characters)

Zeke's Pale ale pours like any other American pale ale a bright orange yellow color with just a 1/4 inch of head. Smell is surprisingly hoppy with a toffee like malt sweetness and some gram cracker. Taste was very balanced with just enough hops to keep it interesting but not to leave a lingering bitterness on the tounge. Body was light to medium.

Overall it drank quite well so it was well crafted. I would get it again. (423 characters)
