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.

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2013
Draught at Alameda Brewing Co. Funky and fresh aroma. Light copper with a tan head. Tangy, bright caramel and pine balance right away . Pleasant bittering in mid and final. Thin-medium body. Pretty good. Has more flavor than (and somewhat different flavors from) most pale ales.

Reid (1848) - Salem,Oregon, 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.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Amber pour with a small head and sparse lacing. Nice balance of citrus and floral hops in the aroma along with some maltiness. Very well balanced flavors. The malt and hops blend together very well leaving you with just a touch of alcohol. Nice body. Hoppy palate with a bitter finish. Very good pale ale.

22oz. bottle from John’s Market. Pours a moderately opaque, deep amber color. Big assed off-white head issues forth and slowly recedes, fantastic lacing. Wonderful "C" hop aroma, lightly floral, moderately citric. Body is just a bit disappointing. Not terrifically light but seemingly missing something, hard to describe but there. Flavor is nicely balanced with some caramel sweetness and a moderate hop bitterness and flavor. Decently done, scoring higher if it didn’t have that void.

Cloudy orange with no head. Good hop balance. Dry and bitter finish. Maltiest pale I've ever had. Great.

Gerbeer (1664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 27, 2012
650 ml bottle from Central City. Pours a dark orange/amber with very little head. Aroma of light citrus hops and a hint of malt. Although not strong, hops are predominant in the flavor. Acidic and astringent. A bit of toffee flavor well after the finish.

Tap. Amber, small head. Rather mild but drinkable. Some cascades, a bit of bubblegum flavor. Little discernerable aroma.

brystmar (1189) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Smells like acetone and feet. Some hops snuck in the back too. Taste is far better, bringing the pale ale hoppiness pretty nicely actually. Good body; clean finish.

Lagerboy (1171) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2014
Bomber. Mostly clear orange, firm off-white frothy lasting creamy head leaves a lot of messy soapy lacing. Sweet caramel malt aroma. More than a lightly bitter herbal earthy hop bite, mildly sweet caramel malts behind, some citrus. Average carbonation, medium bodied, medium hopped. Floral bitter finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)
