Pours a hazy copper with a half finger of off white head
Smell is earthy, bready, slight pine and musty fruits, pale malt
Taste is more of the same, earthy hop, bready, musty pear, pale malt, slight and I mean slight bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium, average carbonation, slightly drying.
Well it is more of a earthy apa, which Is fine it is actually a nice change of pace from the citrus pine APA/IPAs. Give it a shot if you see it. Good stuff, could go through a 6 of this with no problem.

Bent River's Pale Ale is a very flavorful pale ale. It has a darker color than I was expecting, like a dark burnt orange almost. I was also surprised by the flavor. It was a little stronger than I thought it would be, which turned out to be a good thing. This was my first time at Bent River and I can't wait to go back and try other beers. If you're ever in the QC area, hit up Bent River.

Bent River has a Sunday $4 large mug special, so I decided to finally try this beer. The color was a dark gold that invited me to take a sip. Wow. Next to Schlafly's Pale on tap, this is one of the best pales I've had.
Sure. There is nothing radical going on with it. The smell is just that of beer, with a little grass scent. It isn't really hoppy, but I don't always want hops with my pale ale. The straw taste is obvious on the back end. The beer feels good going across the tongue and is easy to drink, maybe too easy.

I had this beer on tap at the Quad Cities River Bandits baseball game. Did I look like a dork scribbling notes about beer with front row seats? Probably, but the dugout made a nice table. About the beer. . . it was a cloudy amber color with a light wispy head. Very limited number of large bubbles. The beer had a malty nose and a clean malty flavor with a very slight hops character. Some minor bite at the finish. Nice malty character and pleasant mouthfeel. Some lemony notes. To give an idea of the color/appearance the usher at the ballpark asked me if it was iced tea. I graded it a B+ myself.

The beer was a clear amber color with a heavy white head. It had a malty aroma with a hint of an earthy bouquet. It had a balanced flavor that slightly leaned towards the malt. We found out that it was hopped with a lager hop, Saaz, which left a unique, mild, and somewhat bitter character to the beer.
