Snake River Pale AleSnake River Pale Ale
Notes: Snake River Pale is an American pale brewed with domestic malt and plenty of Cascade hops. Golden in color, it has a citrusy hop flavor which is followed by a crisp, firmly bitter finish. Pale ale is a great foil to spicy ethnic foods and can also complement a salad well.

June 2018....pours pale gold, light copper, white foam around. Orange citrus nose. Fruity. Citrus malt flavors, light fruity mixture. Subtle, but delicious.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a nice clear amber with a modest off-white head. Initial impression is citrus-y West Coast hoppiness, with grapefruit, citrus rind, and a bit of lemon. Mouthfeel is medium, carbonation is perfect. Finish is clean and citrus-y, with a slight lingering bitterness.

Old-school and malt forward. Smells primarily of grain. Great malt flavor with firm bitterness from the C-hops. It’s a nice palate reset and reminds me of craft beer from the early-2000’s, in a good nostalgic way.

Nice lighter body and decent hop flavor. Almost there as a really good pale.

On tap at the brewpub in Jackson WY.
Amber body with high clarity and a thin but durable white head.
Inviting aroma with light hops and bready toasted grains..
Moderate strength flavor for style.
Medium+ body.

The appearance was mostly clear golden yellow colored body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies within twenty seconds, some light clingy spotty foamy lacing graces the sides of the pint glass. The smell has a light amount of citrus/orange coming forth in the hops, and another light amount of pine coming through, ever so slight amount of malts. The taste is mainly bittersweet and smooth, no aftertaste, dry finish. On the palate, its light, sessionable, and has a slightly sharp carbonation but still good for the style and leads to a good smooth feel coming all around. Overall, I would say this is pretty good for the style and very good to me, I would definitely have this again.

Canned 10/13/15.

Served cold into a shaker pint glass, Snake River Pale is a slightly hazy golden copper color with about an inch of white head. It settles gradually leaving a little spotty lace behind.

Aroma is fresh and hoppy with a good bit of citrus. Not overly so but this is a pale ale after all.

Flavor has mild malty sweetness up front with good hop bitterness coming through from middle to end to balance it out. Hops provide citrus, grass, and pine in that order.

Mouthfeel is medium-light in body and appropriately carbonated. Good balance and drinkable.

Overall a very good pale ale. I only wish it were easier to get.

Nice dark yellow color with a sizeable inch of white head. Aroma was c hop bitterness, very minimal dry hopping.

Taste was a standard easy to drink pale ale with ibus in the 40-50 range, far from oppressively bitter, old school c hops all over it, toasted pale malts, minimal caramel, grapefruit impressions.

Very lightly hopped for an APA. Not too much stronger than a crisp German pils. Pours out medium golden. With a small lasting tight white head. Ready aroma and taste, some mild dry hoppiness at the finish.
