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.

22. Pours a cloudy burnished dark amber with a very light and sudsy tan head. Scant drippy lace. Mild caramel and brown bread nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel and a little bit of biscuit on the mid palate. Not really very much happening here, other than the cool name and label.

drpimento (2153) - 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.

stantheman (613) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
On tap at River’s Reach in New Westminster. Color is a medium amber-orange. A big fill on a 20 oz glass, so no nose to speak of. Decently hoppy, with a bit of malt noticeable, but I’m not in love with this beer, as it has a very long and lingering sour-bitter aftertaste. Meh.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Orange with a white head. The aroma has a lot of pine and orange notes as well as some toffee. The flavor is made up of bitter oranges, pine, toffee and caramel. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2003
UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Murky orange. Sweet sugar and honey hopped nose. Very nice full hop flavor of grapefruit and bread. Hearty, reminds me of Full Sail Pale Ale. Frothy and bitter finish.

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.....

BuckeyeBoy (2607) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 12, 2008
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.

Ungstrup (29072) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2008
Draft. An unclear amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of grassy hops. The flavor is sweet malty and grassy.

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Bomber from Sondra (a good soul who doesn’t drink alcohol). Red tinged amber color with a decent white head. APA aroma - citrus hop over lightly roasted malts. Medium bodied with very frothy, creamy carbonation. A hint of sour, with malt and citrus hop. Reminds me a little of Siletz. Finish is dry, citric and puckerish. It’s a bit off style in my thoughts. Decent drink, but I am not positive I would actively seek it out.

slight fruity aroma. Pours cloudy orange-copper, thin head. Light hops, some astringence. Bland but drinkable.
