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.

On Tap at Alameda Brewing Co. Portland, OR Pours out a amber topped with a cream head. A nice light aroma of hops. Tast of floral and citrus hops a little light malt. Pretty good.

Hazy copper, amber color with no head & light lacing. The aroma is very grapefruity with hops, fresh & floral. Light hopiness compliments the malts perfectly. The use of specialty hops is the key I think. Finishes lightly sweet & bitter. mmmmmmm, not over the top like Stone Pale, more balanced like it should be. Definately dry hopped I think.

Draught pint at Redbones on 12/3/2006
Hazy, yet not nearly as much as some of Alameda’s other offerings. I’d say about medium to medium-high clarity overall. Muted peachskin colored body with copper and light nectarines hues throughout. Sandy colored head is one and a half fingers high, frothy and recedes slowly to cover, providing plentiful lacing.
Dusty, almost metallic hop notes perk up at first, followed by some bready, medium-sweet crystal malt notes. But if it starts poorly, it picks up steam. Hops evolve in to a more fruity, if still somewhat muted bouquet of aromas, while a bit of perfume and dry pale malts show a healthy attenuation. Apparent bitterness, but not completely outdoing the aromatics. Breathing allows the breadiness to soften in to a more round caramel sweetness.
Light citrus in the flavor is joined by a brush of bitterness against the palate, but quickly fades in to a fully fruity and caramelly-sweet array of flavors. Strong, but not overly loose carbonation helps break apart the more rich malt notes, leaving lighter honeyish notes in its wake. Orange fruits (peaches mainly) and more citrus finish it off, but the malt sticks through to the end as well, especially in texture. Medium body no alcohol noted. Lightly slippery at times, from the yeast in suspension, but being as there isnt as much of it as usual, there’s also some softness from the malt that is felt. The best conditioned of Alameda’s beers I’ve had and my favorite so far.....

mike_77 (5062) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2014
Hazy brown with massive unstable head. Strong yeasty aroma. Flavour also yeasty and it’s overcarbonated. Maybe some defects in this one. A fair amount of malts in the background. Also some plastic. Not good.

(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.
