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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

No idea who this Zeke character is (please tell me he's a homicidal plumber...), but I guess I'm trying his namesake beer anyway. It pours a clear amber-brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises mild orange zest, grapefruit rind, a pinch of powdered pine bark, and a bit of toffee. The taste focuses on the rinds of the aforementioned fruits, with the toffee washing through meekly, all waiting to be finished by a brusque pine-laden suplex. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, an okay pale ale, nothing special, but something that's drinkable enough to get by.
