Appearance – This was a nice orange-colored ale. I had this on-tap and the glass was filled to the top, so I can’t comment on the head.

Smell – The nice floral hops were complimented by a subtle orange aroma and a significant malt balance.

Taste – The hops were big in here for a pale ale. The orange sweetness came out on the tongue as well, which made for a refreshing combination. There was a nice balance of malt in here, too. Well done.

Mouthfeel – Lightly carbonated and somewhat dry. This was medium-bodied.

Drinkability – I had this with a sandwich and chips, so the thirst-quenching nature of this ale came in handy. I will definitely have it again.

A- Wonderful glowing deep copper color. Slightly hazy from the unfilteredness.

S- Best smelling beer I have ever put my nose up to. Very hoppy, tones of marijuana, hint of citrus.

T- Delicious beer. Perfect amount of hops, has a good NW Pale Ale bite to it as well. Flavor can vary slightly from keg to keg; that's the only reason I did not give it a 5 on taste.

M- Has a good amount of carbonation and is slightly thicker than a lager beer.

o- My go to beer at the bars in the NW. Best Pale Ale I have ever tasted.

Appearance - poured from growler with a thick two fingers of fluffy off-white head, is a deep cloudy gold color, head subsides to a persistent half-finger and leaves lacing on the side of the glass

Smell - smell of hops comes through, slight malt sweetness, grapefruit and citrus aromas from the hops, bready

Taste - sharp hop bitterness upfront is well balanced by biscuity malt tones on the back end, hops are slightly more assertive than a normal pale ale

Mouthfeel - very smooth, strikes a good balance between watery and full-bodied, it's right where a pale ale should be

Drinkability - incredibly drinkable, is a great anytime beer

Manny's Pale Ale from Georgetown Brewing is a great beer from a great local brewery. Their slogan is "darn tasty beer" and Manny's fulfills. A benchmark of the style and that's the reason why it's so ubiquitous in the Seattle area. It's hard to go wrong with this, or any of Georgetown's other beers.
