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

Draft at Ruth's Chris steakhouse in Seattle, WA.

Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a two finger white head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Spotty lacing left behind.

Slightly floral aroma with delicate grassy hops countered by bread and pale malt notes. Subtle grassy pine character with faint citrus hop character followed by bread, biscuit and light fruit.

Medium bodied with a crisp hop presence up front that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malt into a slightly dry finish. Floral and earthy hop character that's not overly dry or bitter followed by citrus rind, bread, biscuit and graham cracker. A well balanced, refreshing beer that pretty sessionable.

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.

Named after Georgetown owner Mann Chao, this pale ale’s made with Summit and Cascade hops. Enjoyed in a shaker pint.

Bright, cloudy copper. A creamy, one- inch head of light cream deposits thick, frothy walls on the glass. It has the consistency of shaken egg whites and hangs around for a long while.

Bright aroma. Lots of citrusy tangerine; a little grass; crackers; honey.

Same deal in the flavor. Bright tangerine peel, honey, toasted crackers and a touch of apricot. Mild bitterness on the sides of the tongue. Finishes dry.

Moderate, pinching carbonation in a medium body. Smooth. A little fizz as it moves.

Nice, bright citrus notes in this one. A solid pale.

On tap. Pours a dark burnt orange color with a thin layer of head. Some lacing. Aroma is citrusy with some floral notes. Taste is some citrus hops along with some malt flavor. Well balanced. Slightly floral at the end with a nice bitter finish. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Easy to drink, flavorful pale ale. Worth having again.

On tap while hanging out in Seattle. Pours a deep bronze color with small white head. Smells of wet dog, some light sweet malt. Malt overpowers much of the expected citrus and pine hops, though not overly sweet. Caramel, bready malts and a crisp finish. Relatively light on the palate, with medium carbonation. Only okay.

Poured into pint shaker glass.Pours a cloudy orange amber, thin off-white head with moderate retention and a hint of lacing. Nice aroma of bready malt, slight citrus and hops. Taste is a well balanced biscuit malt with a hint of roastiness, light citrus hop finish. Medium bodied. A nice well rounded ale with no stand out flavors, but all are well integrated and pleasant to drink. This was an excellent accompaniment to my Italian dinner.

Fantastic taste on this one. Pours a solid deep burnt orange color with a pale head. Carbonation holds up pretty well and is balanced with a full mouth feel. Great pine sticky hop presence which gives a heat Seattle character. Overall a great ale that I will reach for again.
