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.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Sample at GABF 2007. Dark orange gold with a white head. I canít get much of a nose out of this one. Itís a little bit floral with only a mild hop scent. More hop presence to the taste with a bit of orange and hop tongue bite. However, only a moderately good pale ale.

BillKismet (3515) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Apricot body with modest head and mild hop nose. Easy, quenching hop flavor, some bitterness of fresh hops. A decent APA. Mild sour finish.

Aubrey (3490) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 24, 2004
Deep amber with some orange highlights. Caramel malts combined with a healthy dose of hops. Hops werenít very bitter, though. Overall, not too exciting, but rather drinkable.

Douberd (3277) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2015
(Alameda Klickitat Pale Ale) Can 355 l at home, served into a shaker, ABV 5.3% Deep orange to light amber colour on the body, small off-white head, with good density and retention, leaving light lacilng behind. Aroma of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple. Malty taste, some grass, faint hops, less fruity than the aroma suggested, light hay. Finishes with a light bitterness that seems to build up. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Okay, nothing to write home about.

DarkElf (3050) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 29, 2005
(Draft: Alameda Brewing Co. in Portland, OR) The blandness continues at this brewpub. The aroma is gently hoppy, and lightly sweet and caramely, but reasonably acceptable. However, the flavor is once again too generically "beer". Sweet, lightly malty, somewhat bitter, it just sits tiringly on the palate. Golden in color, slightly hazy, small off-white head fades away to nothing. Still hoping for better from this brewpub.

JohnC (3004) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 17, 2004
I thought that this was a pretty subdued American Pale Ale. Not bad, but nothing that would grab you.

pintbypint (2973) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 26, 2014
660ml brown bottle. Dark golden pour with light haze and a low sitting slightly frothy whitish cap. The nose has some citrus hops and some sweet malts as well. Taste has caramel malts, some fruitiness, citrus hops. Caramel and toasted malt finish with some nice late bitterness. Overall, a malt heavy APA, very quaffable.
