Had this on tap at the Parkway Tavern.

A - Definitely average appearance, a little lighter then I would have wanted.

S - Floral aromas. Not much more to say about this one.

T - I'm not sure if it was just a bad keg, but the taste was incredibly hoppy without any substance.

M - Oily is the only word I can use to describe it. Perhaps it was just the keg (?)

O - I was not a fan.

Not great, kinda skunky, might just be the place, trace in seattle, but underwhelmed, kinda bland for a pale ale.

notes: taste of this pale ale didn't agree with me. Just too bitter, almost astringent. Hops aren't diverse enough and just seem to blast you with a one-dimensional bitterness. Probably my least favorite beer I tried while in Seattle and not one I intend to drink again. I much preferred Miller Pond Pale Ale to Manny's.

Man I had this a long time ago, I think at the Yakima fresh hop fest. Has a darker than average amber color, 1/2" white head. Hop aromatics were mild. Usual grapefruit and forest descriptor.

Taste, this is one of those run of the mill pale ales. Light toasted pale malts, light hopping C hops. Easy to drink. Maybe a little more cara malt than I would like in the mouthfeel for sure. This is somewhat of a time capsule kind of pale ale. . . behold, the late 90s. This one actually comes close to achieving balance, but that is definitely what I want in a pale ale. Has some of the nuttiness and heft of a darker beer.

Served On-Tap

A — Pours a medium dark amber hue, almost brownish in the glass, the slightest bit of haze here as well. There is a puffy white head on it, spotty and inconsistent lacing.

S — Smells of sweet malts and a bit of hop, little bit earthy and fresh.

T — Tastes of nicely sweet malts as well as a decent hop balance. There isn't a ton going on here, but that is alright I suppose.

M — Light-Medium bodied, this is highly refreshing and drinkable.

O — OK overall, this is a gateway or entryway to craft beer, its just the tip of the iceberg, which is fine by me.
