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.

drpimento (2502) - 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. Flavorís 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 (816) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
On tap at Riverís 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 Iím not in love with this beer, as it has a very long and lingering sour-bitter aftertaste. Meh.

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.

Bottle, shared with Robbie and Grippitis. Hazy medium orange, off white head. Sweet caramel malt and peachy soft hops, moderate bitterness. Straddles the line between an American style and a British style.

Douberd (3302) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2015
(Alameda Klickitat Pale Ale) Can 355 l at home, served into a shaker, ABV 5.3% Deep orange to light amber colour on the body, small off-white head, with good density and retention, leaving light lacilng behind. Aroma of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple. Malty taste, some grass, faint hops, less fruity than the aroma suggested, light hay. Finishes with a light bitterness that seems to build up. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Okay, nothing to write home about.

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.

Leighton (14431) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2015
Bottle at chrisoís. Pours clear, deep gold with a frothy white head. The nose holds some jammy berries, ripe citrus, pine. Medium sweet flavor with piney bitterness, oily pine, orange rind. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Rindy and resinous on the finish, with lightly toasted malts and orange rind. Not bad.

ClarkVV (4353) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Draught pint at Redbones on 12/3/2006
Hazy, yet not nearly as much as some of Alamedaís other offerings. Iíd 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, thereís also some softness from the malt that is felt. The best conditioned of Alamedaís beers Iíve had and my favorite so far.....
