My go-to beer from like 2008 when I turned 21 until I sadly left Seattle in 2012. A true classic. As a Seattlite in exile, I haven't had Manny's in years, but I can still taste it's nutty/bready malt and its gentle hoppiness. This is a different beast than the other "pale ales" that are basically just IPAs (lookin' at you zombie dust and alpha king), so don't go in expecting an IPA. More malt here, less hops. But a totally quaffable, great beer.

Enjoyed on tap during a layover at Sea-Tac. This is a hazy blood orange, with plenty of soft white head. It smells and tastes of bready malt, citrus and pine. This is a Seattle institution, with good reason!

The first beer I tried on a recent trip to Seattle, and it was a great start! Off the tap in the hotel bar and I revisited this selection several times

Enjoying this beer on-tap at an Irish pub in Seattleas my wife and I arrived here on vacation earlier today. Served in a clear plastic pint glass, this beer draws a fairly clear, slightly cloudy/hazy color with a nice white head that's about 2/3 to 3/4 of an inch thick when first served to me. Head eventually settled to a fairly thick ring lining the inside of my glass along with a bit of lacing. Aromas of toasted, caramel malt sweetness along with some earthy, piney hops. The taste is pretty much the same, with moderately toasted, breadth caramel malt sweetness that gives way to the aforementioned earthy, piney and slightly citrusy hops that give this a nice bitterness on the back end to balance the flavor profile out all around. Has a somewhat crisp, slightly prickly, somewhat smooth, medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Easy to drink inbthebrightvway a beer of this style ought to be. Glad I got a chance to try this one on St. Patty's Day!
