From BeerAdvocate Magazine #88 (May 2014):

Clementines, Crackers, Chalky, Tobacco

Light and fluffy Pale Ale that lands on the dry side, nuances like a hint of buttery diacetyl and biscuity grain leave this brew with an interesting edge. Hoppiness comes across as a bit unique though this could just be simply a well put together brew.

Dark copper color with great clarity. There is a half inch of off white head on top. Well there was. Now a fingernail thin layer doesn't quite fully cover the top. Light Brussels lacing. Intense aroma of galaxy hops with a pineapple like scent. The hops are much more subdued than expected after that aroma. It's well balanced with light malt. The mouth is a bit thin but the hops definitely prickle the tongue.

New brewer for me...really enjoyed it! There is a local brewer that uses galaxy hops on a high gravity beer...this is a session beer. This one is not sold local to me, wish I could try another from them.

Nice, clear golden amber, with minimal head.

Aroma is funky. Bready and spicy somehow.

Taste is weird and off. Tinge of bitterness. Heavy body but I can't get past the overwhelming gym shorts and perspiration aroma. Revolting.

Maybe this bottle was old or stored in a heated warehouse too long? Will pick up another bottle if I see one to compare.

Zekes is a decent pale ale for sessioning. The beer poured a lighter clear copper with no head and no lace. The scent was slightly malty with some bitter hop flare. The taste is a decent balanced pale ale...sweet malt with bitter hop. Themouthfeel is lighter in body with good so so carbonation. Overall its a good beer....not one for the ages....but good.

Hazy amber color with off-white head. Not much going on on the aroma, just some generic hops, slightly dank and some underlying caramel malt. Taste starts with a slight fruity sweetness but then comes a stale note. Fortunately it disappears quickly and it finishes quite clean with medium to low hop bitterness and lingering grapefruit flavor. Body is on the lighter side but it has a nice mouthfeel. Overall it's a pretty decent pale ale.

Pretty good beer. Floral and peach taste in the beginning. Dry and bitter finish. Not too bitter though. Decent pale ale that I got in a variety packs.

From a 12 oz bottle in a snifter via a friend from work---Thanks Randy!
This decent little pale pours a lightly cloudy deep amber with a very nice
head of white foam that settles to a thick ring, thin sudsy layer, and features
some darn nice sticky lacing. Nose of heavy citrus, breaded malts, honey malts,
and light grain notes. Flavors follow the nose with a bitter grapefruit and light
lemon pulp note mixed with herbal hop notes and touched with breaded malts
and slight grain notes. Nice mouth feel; medium light body, medium light carbonation,
and a moderately clean yet bitter finish.

Overall a decent pale.

12 oz bottle dated 1/30/14 poured into a chalice/pint kinda glass that I dk the name of.

A - pours a nice looking pale orange with moderate head. Decent lacing as you drink.

S - I really don't get anything in the nose. Maybe some mild straw and a touch of sweetness. Some lemon. Nothing too exciting, but nothing off-putting either - which is probably what they're going for.

T - So much more pleasant than the nose. You get a little bit of everything. Some moderate grassy/piney notes finishing with a lemony sweetness. Finishes very abruptly and dry, which I'm not too crazy about. But definitely leaves you wanting more.

M - Mild carbonation and a very solid mouthfeel. Some nice body to it.

O - There's definitely some room for improvement, but I'm a fan. I could see myself drinking quite a few of these in the summer.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a deep slightly hazy amber with a thin white head.

Aroma is caramel malt with maybe a slight citrus hop.

Taste plays with the idea of hop candy but never goes the whole way because it falls kinda flat at the end.

Stuck between and old and new school pale ale.
