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.

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 (819) - 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.

hayduke (3422) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Picked up this bottle in Ashland, Oregon at The Market of Choice. The 22 oz bottle poured a deep amber with red tinges. Very big foarm head that lasted a long time, and left good allacing. Nose of of caramel malts and citrus hops. Mouthfeel is medium. Flavor is like the aroma, mostly caramel malts and citurs hops Finish is dry.

bhensonb (11382) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Bomber from Sondra (a good soul who doesn’t drink alcohol). Red tinged amber color with a decent white head. APA aroma - citrus hop over lightly roasted malts. Medium bodied with very frothy, creamy carbonation. A hint of sour, with malt and citrus hop. Reminds me a little of Siletz. Finish is dry, citric and puckerish. It’s a bit off style in my thoughts. Decent drink, but I am not positive I would actively seek it out.

spikester (604) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Amber with reddish highlights. Plenty of lacings. Nice citrus hps and sweet malts. Not over-done. Excellent Pale Ale. Lists abv of 5%. Perfect session PA. These guys do good work. Recommended. Nice bitter finish.

Ungstrup (29665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2008
Draft. An unclear amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of grassy hops. The flavor is sweet malty and grassy.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Decent session pale ale. Definitely made in more of an English tradition, this is very malt forward, with the hops folowing ever so slightly in the background with some toffee flavors and a buttery herbal hop note in the finish. Exciting enough on the palate to not be boring, but not assertive enough to completely be a palate killer. Extremely drinkable.

ManvsCity (180) - Redmond, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Twenty-two oz. bottle from Food Front Co Op in Portland, OR. Thick & foamy light tan head. Hops dominate the palate. Aroma mild. Light finish. Tasty beer with homemade bean burritos.

Reid (1938) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 25, 2008
Bomber from Capital market,Salem. Copper coloured, clear with a large creme coloured head. Light, subdued aromas of malts and some hops. Very malt driven Pale ale, toffeeish,creamy and almost English, the NW hopping does make an appearance near the end. Pretty nice on the palate, quite full. A nice middle of the road Pale Ale more English than American style IMO.
