Damn I think I first had this beer over 20 years ago. Guess I'll get around to writing the review finally. To me, its wild that this thing has won gold twice at GABF. Then again, I say most industry awards are meaningless, so perhaps this tracks.

Pours an amber color. Think SNPA color wise. 2/3" off white head, dense. One of the maltier 4% session strength pale ales out there, at least appearance wise. Hefty Hefty Hefty. WImpy Wimpy Wimpy. The aroma kicks down a light C hop presence (CTZ actually) and a strong crystal malt presence. Munich? Maybe.

Taste is, well, not to beat a dead horse, a pale ale built on maltiness moreso than hoppiness. Brings a hefty amount of bitterness relative to uh, everything, but especially the 4% angle. Its not a bad beer. This beer has remained relatively constant, whereas the evolution of proprietary hops and session beers have made it to where you can give some mega hopped session ipas and shit. I think your uncle would be plenty happy with this beer, and there are times where I can dig on it, but as the weather approaches and exceeds 100 degrees, I start to look for less malty beers. Decent spring/fall stuff I guess.

Lightly hazy classic amber with a short khaki head leaving spongy lacing on the glass.

Toasty graham malt joins a woody pine hop presence that sees its subtle abrasiveness recede into a dry finish of orange pith before a faintly dank exhale.

Had this on 2020-03-18 in Las Vegas. NV from a 12oz canned 2020-02-22

Amber red. Mild aroma. Nice amount of bready malt. Citrus. Light pine. Moderately bitter. Like the flavor. Will have again.

Pretty bland dry pale ale. A bit of an astringent taste despite the low ABV. Overall you should pass on this - maybe a good time to branch out from the Pale Ales if this the only one on the menu...

On tap at the airport in SLC. Cloudy amber, taste of grapefruit tempered by brown sugar. Medium carbonation, overall very good, I’ll seek this out again.

Hazy amber, small stubborn head
Smell is somewhat strong of hoppy grapefruit
Taste is of well balanced hops, not as weak as some "pale ales" but moderately hoppy and malty resulting in a pretty decent brew

A+ on tap at SLC, across from gate C3, try Squatters airport pub and grub - great.
As good a full flavored session ale as I've enjoyed, served all over SLC in bottles and on tap.

a) CLOUDED, suspended amber body with a thin sturdy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
s) Like all Squatters leans to floral. blend of floral hops, caramelized malt and pine citrus.
t) The taste is floral and more fruity with lemon and orchard fruit, apples, and bright hops. The malt is english in style in a suitably balanced base. Finish is sweet and floral, but balanced.
f) Crisp and smooth, mid body & carbonation, clean finish. You reach for another.
o) Good for one or for the evening. Perhaps their top beer along with their rye stout and nitro stout.

I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at Squatters Pub in Salt Lake City.

Appearance: deep orange hue with a moderate haze and a thick finger of frothy ivory foam. Quite good.

Smell: fruity hops and perhaps a grainy base; intensity is a bit too low.

Taste: herbal, earthy and a little bit fruity hops, atop a grainy base. I don't think you can ask for a more multidimensional flavor in a pale ale.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent carbonation and OK creaminess.

Overall: I gave this beer a high taste score because it has a lot going on. That said, I would probably stop after like 2 of these.

Appearance: pours a nice deep amber with one finger off-white head that dissipates quickly leaving a pretty, thin lacing.

Smell: Citrus comes through first followed by hops. A little bread aroma comes as well.

Taste: Seems like a good balance of bitter and citrus. 4% alcohol is perfect for this session.

Feel: Carbonation is good, the look is great, and I really like the unfiltered ales.

Overall: I like this maybe more than most other reviewers. It goes down easy and even though I've had a bad experience with squatters growlers, this bottled ale is good.
