3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour amber with a diminishing white head. A very sweet malt aroma. The taste is equally as sweet. A nice malt flavor but no hops to balance. A sweet almost cloying aftertaste. Not bad flavor but a dissapointing APA. Should be classified as an English pale ale.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I did not like this beer. Appearance was pretty good with a large white head. Weak and watery on top of a flavor that is distinctly malty beer. Sweetish with little in hopps showing up. A beer fit for Wiley Coyote only.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Buttery, dark-fruited malt backbone with a gentle hopping. The head doesn't stick around long, and the visuals are a cloudy amber with long-lasting bubbles. I think I would have like this better had there been a less overbearing sweetness and more hops.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thin and watery, a slighly metallic taste. Very dissapointing considering that it is brewed by North Coast. A crappy SNPA imitation.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very thin beer lacking in any interesting flavors. At least it's a pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazed golden amber liquid with a smallish deep cream colored head. Sheets of lace. Light aromas of malt and floral hops. Full and silky feel. Pale malt sweetness on the front followed by a light sweet floral hops flavor. Continued sweetnees through the finish. Not a bad brew, but for me...between the full feel and the sweetness, this borders on cloying.

As a sierra nevada fan I judge tough on other pale ales. This one though meets if not exceeds the standard.

Good floral aroma. Hints of citrus, grapfruit? Not too hoppy, you can taste the honey in the aftertaste. Only a trickle of carbonation. Nice and easy drinking.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The Acme name is an apt one for this Pale Ale - serviceable, reliable but not outstanding. Light amber color with a small white head that dissipated quickly to a ring of of tiny bubbles around the edge of the glass leaving little lacing. Aroma is moderate malt with predominant floral hops and a hint of lemon. Nice mouthfeel, creamy and medium body with soft carbonation. Average to long hoppy finish with an intriguing metallic acidity. Indeed a "session" beer as the description claims.
