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.

Can from Coppers, Newcastle. Hazy dark amber in colour with a thin white head. It has a red fruit and spicy tropical fruit flavour with a smooth, creamy bitter orange and pine finish.

Aubrey (3501) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 24, 2004
Deep amber with some orange highlights. Caramel malts combined with a healthy dose of hops. Hops weren’t very bitter, though. Overall, not too exciting, but rather drinkable.

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.

(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.

I thought that this was a pretty subdued American Pale Ale. Not bad, but nothing that would grab you.

Can from Haggen. Deep amber in color. Quite hazy. Dry bready nose. Some spicy hops in the nose. Biscuit up front with a spicy grapefruit hop character. Somewhat dry and a little earthy. Nice balance of hops and maltiness. Pretty quaffable pale ale.

maekchu (2905) - 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.

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.

Burnt auburn in color, small creamy head that fades quickly. Nice hop nose, with some sweet maltiness coming through as well. Full of grapefruit, this is extremely thirst quenching. Has a great bite up front that fades into a smooth clean finish. Very well balanced.
