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.

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.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Amber pour with a small head and sparse lacing. Nice balance of citrus and floral hops in the aroma along with some maltiness. Very well balanced flavors. The malt and hops blend together very well leaving you with just a touch of alcohol. Nice body. Hoppy palate with a bitter finish. Very good pale ale.

22oz. bottle from John’s Market. Pours a moderately opaque, deep amber color. Big assed off-white head issues forth and slowly recedes, fantastic lacing. Wonderful "C" hop aroma, lightly floral, moderately citric. Body is just a bit disappointing. Not terrifically light but seemingly missing something, hard to describe but there. Flavor is nicely balanced with some caramel sweetness and a moderate hop bitterness and flavor. Decently done, scoring higher if it didn’t have that void.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2003
Cloudy orange with no head. Good hop balance. Dry and bitter finish. Maltiest pale I've ever had. Great.

Lagerboy (1558) - 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)

Reimer96 (1513) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 31, 2015
Pours a hazy golden amber with frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, light sourness and caramel malt sweetness. Taste is citrus, light pine, some caramel and an off tartness that dominates the finish. Smooth bitterness is in the background but this one is just off.

rikstar (1402) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2015
0,33l blik bij bar douw. Amberkleurig met een minimale crème schuimkraag. Geur is tropisch fruit. Smaak is een beetje waterig met tropisch fruit in de afdronk wat zoute drop. Body is wat mager.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Tap. Amber, small head. Rather mild but drinkable. Some cascades, a bit of bubblegum flavor. Little discernerable aroma.

neepsntatties (1372) - 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.

brystmar (1314) - 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.
