Notes: Peacemaker is a west coast style American Pale Ale that uses several hop varieties to produce a unique and bountiful hop aroma with a balanced bitterness. A special blend of American and European malts make this a very well rounded, characterful beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured into a tulip glass with a nice copper color and off-white head. Decent lacing, nice to look at.

Smell is a bit of hops, not overwhelming, and a little bit of butterscotchy-sweetness lingering. Not bad, though nothing impressive.

Taste is hops upfront (though far from overwhelming), and ends with a little sweetness, though not in a particularly pleasant way. Has a sense of diactyl(sp) to it with a little butterscotch aftertaste along with a bit of a bitter finish. Taste still isn't bad per se, just not grabbing me.

Mouthfeel is a bit muddled. A little too watery and not crisp enough on the finish, has a little bit of a "hop water" kind of feel to it. I guess it is still relatively smooth and for that matter drinkable, since I still don't find myself having a whole lot of trouble drinking it. I guess none of the flavors are overwhelming enough to make it unpleasant. Not a bad beer, but can use a little fine tuning (or i had a bad bottle... the bottling date would maintain that it is indeed fresh). I've been trying to compare some of the realtively local PA's lately, and based on this sample I would put it behind Natty Greene's and Highland.

Citrus, Resin, Gummy, Level

Very palatable, both malt and hops play very well together. Citrus hoppy flavor has a soft bitterness throughout, pithy. Toasted bread, fruity, fresh grassy hop finish. A little vegtal with a faint kiss of alcohol. While not one attribute really stands outs it is a full on Pale Ale without getting bashed with hops. Job well done guys!!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Light amber, clear. Pours a light, airy head.

Aroma: Caramel! I wasn't expecting the sweet malt from a pale ale. Pretty interesting and tasty aroma, which makes me interested about the taste...

Taste: Well, there's less hops here than I'd expect from a pale ale, but the malty sweetness of the aroma is more subtle in the taste, and you get a well balanced mixtured of hops on top of it. It's a delicate beer.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth and soft, medium bodied, light carbonation; pleasant to drink!

Overall: I was positively surprised, it's a good beer.

Hazy copper colored beer with a foamy off white head that leaves gobs of lacing. Smells like caramel, malt and some pine. The taste is caramel with bitter pine and a nice sweetness. Pretty nice beer.

Picked this up from the store in bottles. Poured into a pint glass. Good appearance with an okay head. Not that much lacing. Smell was a nice hoppy pale. The taste was better than average. Good solid mouthfeel and carbonation. Overall, a fairly tasty beverage.
