Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

If a tall pine falls in the Palouse and no one is there to hear it… Quietly brewed since 1993 and renamed in 2012 after another brewery gave us the silent treatment over a trademark issue with “Northern Lights,” this Spokane-style Pale lets its generous malt base and imposing use of Cluster and Cascade hops do the talking… No-Lie.

So the bomber format needs to have great beers in it given price. Silent treatment is a lot of citrus flavor, oranges are very noticed. Poured into an ok poured body/head/lacing and gives off just a lot of citrus flavors and aromas.

This would be a really good beer in a better format but in a bomber sorry PASS.

I can't lie I"m grossly discounting this one for the price and being in the crappy bomber format without being a beer worth that.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Deep gold/light copper color with a faint haze. Head dissipates into a thin layer that persists.

Smell: Classic pale ale.Faint citrusy hops, with background notes of light caramel malts, and a touch of biscuity character. Not a mind blower, but those who may reckon how pale ales used to taste would approve.

Taste: Balance is definitely towards the bitterness, though it is not overwhelming. Malt character is subdued (I would expect a tad more malt, considering the 5.75% ABV). Very pleasant citrus/pine hop flavor lingers. Clean, with not apparent flaws.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, but with a creamy texture aided by ample carbonation.

Overall: An extremely pleasant pale ale. Refreshing, hoppy, without being overwhelming from any angle. People who are looking for a beer to blow their mind will likely be underwhelmed by this beer. However, people who remember how beer used to taste before the recent pissing contest of flavor/alcohol/hop concentration will appreciate this beer for what it is...good.

Silent is a appropriate name, the smell is barely audible, taste has is almost Silent. Could be good for a really Hot Dry Texas day, if you like it dry and crisp on the end this one is for you. Silence is Golden to some but for now I will pass on this one.

Sampled from a 22oz bottle purchased at Triangle Wine in Morrisville.

A - Golden and very clear with a big white head of large bubbles.

S - Citrusy, piney and slightly grassy hops.

T - Starts with pine and a mild sweetness. A nice hop bitterness picks up midway and lasts after the finish. Enough toasted malt to prop up the hops but the hops definitely run the show.

M - Moderate carbonation and consistency. Maybe a little light.

O - A very drinkable pale ale but there's a sweetness that I didn't need.
