Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Pastime Pale Ale is a "hopped up" version of an American style pale ale. The beer is deep amber to copper color, and receives several generous additions of Centennial and Cascade hops. These hops give the beer a coplex and enticing character, with spicy aromas of citrus and pine. Specialty grains deliver a rich and full-bodied flavor, with a bold taste of caramel and toasted malt. Our brewery is located in the former headquarters of the Maytag Corp., and the "Pastime" was the first washing machine made by the Maytag Company in 1907.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong piney hops, sweet malt, alcohol, and a hint of citrus. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight alcohol, strong pine, slight citrus hops, hint of caramel malt, and rye. Overall, good appearance, blend, and body (the rye is in just the right proportion).

Could drink a few if these - nice, but not huge for a PA.

I enjoyed the drinkability of this beer. None of the flavors were in your face, but that worked to this beer's advantage. The mouthfeel was especially good; carbonation was just right.

Very good beer! It has a lot of stuff going on in it, at different temps and longer periods of sitting out makes it a very interesting beer. All flavors noted in description on this page can be tasted, and pair well with each other.

Sampled last night on 5/19/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a tulip glass.

Pours a pretty hazy golden in color with a good almost 2--finger creamy/foamy off-white head. A good amount of lacing is seen with each sip. The aroma is mostly of hops with a hint of citrus and floral. The taste is similar to the smell with a slightly pine 'hoppy' aftertaste BUT wasn't bad nor did it linger at all. This one actually got a bit better after a couple of sips. Ended up drinking of of it actually. Perfect carbonation as well. Overall I liked it.
