Perfect session pale ale. Pine hops and sweet malt with a mild aroma. Completely non offensive. Too bad it's probably the last I'll have since its being retired. You'll be missed wild hare.

Excellent Amber color with thick prevalent head. Quaint smell of hops and barley. Thick tasting beer where the pale taste hits you on the forefront rather than the aftertaste. If you like Pale Ales this is within the top 5 I've tasted.

3/22...pours copper amber, mostly clear, some white foam. Light caramel sweet nose, malty. Taste is a thin open, light body, modest hop, fast close. Smooth. A little chewy, fruity like an english pale would be. Simple but enough of a flavor profile to stay interested.

It pours a clear medium amber with a white sudsy head and possesses mild notes of grain malts, floral hops, caramel and a stale cardboard odor. This brew is a little lighter than I expected, it has a very mild hoppiness and a light caramel sweetness and not much else. Really nothing special here... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Great color and very refreshing taste. Not much of a smell but very light and good drinkable! Bottle has a nice design too.
