This stuff seem to hit the mark for a perfect pale ale.just tad bit of hoppy bitterness and tang. Fantastic color and smell to go with.

I called brewery to confirm, floaters (yeast not hops) are NOT intentional. They told me they would be happy to replace my 6 pack and that the canner made mistake with a small amount of cans. I'm hoping my replacement 6er will be > or = to 4.0

A: golden-orange. Medium, foamy head. Hop particles floating throughout glass. May be a few grain particles mixed in. Mostly hops.

S: light lemon. Honey.

T: citrus followed by a horrible grassy bitter flavor. I love pale ale and IPA. This is not good.

M: medium-low carbonation. Medium body.

O: I hate being negative. But, this is not a good beer. Tons of hops floating in beer, and a real strong grassy-irony bittering that doesn't fade. I dumped it 4 oz. in.

Served in nonic. Poured a lightly hazy honey-gold color with about 1/4 inch of white head that had low retention and lacing.

The aroma was a fairly neutral mix of lightly sweet malts and some very soft hops. Mostly the same across the palate, sweet malts dominating, very light floral hops, but with the addition of a bit of bitterness at the very back of the tongue.

The body was a bit heavier than typical, and was just a wee bit sticky. Drinkability was OK, would have been better with less stickiness and had the bitterness faded quicker. Overall, a decent enough brew, not worth seeking out, but (depending on what else is on the tap list) probably worth trying if you see it.

Pours the classic golden color in the Pilsener glass with a white head. Flowery aroma like a Pilsener. Handsome appearance and pleasingly spritzy on the tongue.

Some honey-tinged malt flavors with a little sweetness. Grainy flavor with some crackery notes. A thickish mouthfeel. Less crisp and more malty than a lot of Pale Ales. Not very bitter. The hops are more floral with a resiny undertone.

Thoroughly drinkable, sudsy light brew. From the 12 oz can bought at Bottleworks in Seattle.

12oz can from "lifesource" in Salem OR. $1.79. NOTE: says "Brewed by Amnesia Brewing Inc.,Washougal WA. Not sure were as there are no big canners up there. Anyway looks a typical golden coloured beer with a large thick and frothy white head. Creamy corn and toffee aromas..some hay too..no hop. Taste is similar cream of corn, biscuit and hay..its pleasing but the hops are non-existent. The mouth feel is the best thing..silky smooth like drinking creamy milk. a strange one and maybe more a blonde ale?

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with atwo finger off-white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt and cream corn, faint grassy hops. Flavor is quite malty, dry biscuit and pale and hints of toasted malt, hay, light citrus, tea. Nice medium creamy body. A good malty pale ale with a slight vegetal aroma and note in the flavor. Hopping is very subdued. More a very malty English bitter than an American pale ale. The low key hopping is compensated by the very nice creamy mouth feel; unusual for a pale ale. Pleasant, but slightly flawed by the vegetal flavor.

From a silver 12 ounce can. First time available in a container.
Appearance is better than average due to three fingers of white head and plentiful lacings.. Gold in color with a white head.
Smell is floral hops with some grainy malt character.
Taste is modest hop bitterness some stone fruit and fresh baked french bread. The hop bitterness is there but somewhat restrained though they dominate the malt slightly. There is a good yeasty flavor toward the end.
Mouthfeel is full for the style and carbonation is spot on. Very slightly dry finish.
Overall a fine APA that won't win the big hop competition and that makes it a contender for repeat visits. Slightly funky in a good way.
May edit or revise my review after finishing the sixer.
Revised for appearance.
