COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With an appealing amber color, this brew has a perfect balance of caramel malt and spicy hop flavors. The Munich malt in this recipe lends a rich mouth feel, while generous additions of Pacific-Northwest hops complete the balance. Try a pint of Pale with the Salmon Gyros, Falafel or Alameda Dip.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Piney, citrus hops with a grassiness to it on the nose. Slightly hazy, dark golden color, bordering on copper. A nice shot of grass that finishes dry. Malt is hidden, playing a supporting role in the middle palate. A nice balance of body and carbonation. Good pale - enough flavor for the afficionados but still sessionable.

stchloe (745) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Good head on it, and a nice sweet malty body with a decent hop profile. If not for the price a fine beer to waste a summer day with.
