Had this on tap at the Parkway Tavern.

A - Definitely average appearance, a little lighter then I would have wanted.

S - Floral aromas. Not much more to say about this one.

T - I'm not sure if it was just a bad keg, but the taste was incredibly hoppy without any substance.

M - Oily is the only word I can use to describe it. Perhaps it was just the keg (?)

O - I was not a fan.

notes: taste of this pale ale didn't agree with me. Just too bitter, almost astringent. Hops aren't diverse enough and just seem to blast you with a one-dimensional bitterness. Probably my least favorite beer I tried while in Seattle and not one I intend to drink again. I much preferred Miller Pond Pale Ale to Manny's.

On tap in a pint glass at Bimbo's Cantina in Seattle on 11/9/11

Cloudy, muddy orange; kinda ugly. Poured a thin, soapy layer of foam. Streaky lace - good at the top, tapering off midway through the glass.

Soapy, solvent citrus hops. Fresh orange rind, lemon peel and some grapefruit. Toasty bread aroma with a subtle cracker sweetness. Tastes alright. Dense citrus, but blunted. Lots of orange peely goodness. A bit juicy. Some earthiness with mild pine resin bitterness. Lots of grains for a pleasant backing - toasty, well-rounded with a brushing of sugar. The feel is between medium and full for the style and enjoyably so. Moderate carbonation nails the feel. Granular on the finish with residual citric tones.

Overall impression - pretty enjoyable PNW pale ale of the dank order.

On tap at the motel bar. Nice looking medium amber color with a cap of foam to start. Plenty of carbonation. Just a little aroma of something malty, that grainy nose.

A refreshing and unobtrusive light-weight beer. It's the darker color but the lighter style. Just a touch of crackers with a slight leafy hop note. This is a very standard sort of brew, even if I don't know whether to call it a pale ale or an amber. So mellow, it really doesn't matter. It suffers from the malt finally catching up and overwhelming the very slight bitterness. Hop lovers will find this more insipid than inspiring.
