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.

Gerbeer (1737) - 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 (1237) - 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 (1216) - 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)

neepsntatties (1205) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 30, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Colour... amber with no head. Nose...grapefruity hops. Palate... citrusy hops up front, lingering hop bite on the sides, moderately bitter and a medium finish.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2010
slight fruity aroma. Pours cloudy orange-copper, thin head. Light hops, some astringence. Bland but drinkable.

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.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2009
22 OZ bobmer via Hagen. Pours a copper with reddish highlights, and an average off white head. Nose is pleasant toasty and and mild floral hops. Taste is toasted malts, straw, herbal/earthy hops. More of a malt profile than a hop, but pretty balanced as the hops to kick in in the aftertaste a bit. Body is light/medium, carbonation just right. A bit watery. A nice easy to drink backyard summer beer.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Amber in color with a frothy head. clear on first pour with a sediment cloud on the second. Sweet caramel apple aroma. Very fruity flavor, juicy citric flavor, and building sweetness develops as it warms. This is a real nice pale ale.

Zymurgeist2 (988) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Deep sunset orange with haze. Large white head of large bubbles. Very carbonated. Aromas of citrus and orange blossom. Slight spring meadow. Nice chewy mouthfeel with yeast present and dry. Strong bitterness throughout the beer.
