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 can’t get much of a nose out of this one. It’s 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.

tricksta_p (3530) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2015
Aroma of biscuity malt, some caramel, earthy hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Not much in the way of fruits, more of an earthy malty aroma. Carbonation is rather high. I’d say this is average at best, I like my APA a lot more fruity. Taking into account that I had an old bottle (well over a year old), I wouldn’t mind trying a fresher specimen one day.

Aubrey (3509) - 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.

maekchu (3460) - 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.

Can from Cork & Cask. Murky red/brown with tiny yeast flecks and an off-white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of toffee apple, wood, blood orange and fig. Flavour of pine, orange and caramel. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Rich and lightly hopped.

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.

Gerbeer (3132) - 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.

drpimento (3126) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Poured at a good temperature with a nice, foamy, frothy, off-white head that settled after a bit and some lace. Color is a slightly hazy, dark amber. Aroma is very mild, slightly malt and hop. Flavor’s like nose, carbonic tang up front, followed immediately by bitter/sweet, a hint roast. Body and carbonation good. Finish is like flavor, on the short side, and forgettable.
