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.

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.

boFNjackson (4137) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 30, 2009
Tap... Poured a hazy amberish-red with a white head, really nice lacing. Aroma of floral hops and earthy grains. A little bit of hops initially in the flavor but then the focus came to the creamy, caramel malts and bread-like flavors towards the finish.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2009
22 OZ bobmer via Hagen. Pours a copper with reddish highlights, and an average off white head. Nose is pleasant toasty and and mild floral hops. Taste is toasted malts, straw, herbal/earthy hops. More of a malt profile than a hop, but pretty balanced as the hops to kick in in the aftertaste a bit. Body is light/medium, carbonation just right. A bit watery. A nice easy to drink backyard summer beer.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Draught. Poured deep amber with thin white head. Aroma of flowers and citrus. Flavour was hoppy, hoppier than a pale, but not so much as an India. Full mouthfeel. Lasting malt finish with more hoppiness.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Lighter amber in color with a small white head. Light citrus hops in the nose with a soft caramel malt base. Decent and balanced, but the hops weren’t floral enough to really stand out with some of the other pales available in the market.

greenhorn1 (812) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - AUG 13, 2008
22 oz bomber. Pours amber with a two finger thick head. Amber in color. Aroma and flavor are similiar, caramel malts, floral notes, and citrus. Reminds me more of an amber than APA, as the malt mostly dominates the flavor. Dry finish. Overall, not a bad beer, just a bit plain. Very easy to drink.
