COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fresh, crisp and inviting, this golden ale is a favorite with crab, prawns and salads. The floral aroma of hops is derived from dry hopping during the fermentation process.

DocLock (9494) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Thanks to Buck Dich for this one. Dark gold pour with medium, frothy white head. Aroma of malt, hopcit, some honey. Tastes malty, with some citrus, hops, and honey at the finish. Smooth and drinkable.

"how is Alaskan PALE ALE a blonde? Oh well. It’s a bit boring for a pale, but enjoyable and highly drinkable. I used to like it more, but since then have come to enjoy the "bigger" pales. For those who want an easy drinking balanced beer, this is it."

JoeMcPhee (9244) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2004
Pale golden colour and a medium-sized white head. Citrusy and yeasty aromas. Very little obvious hop aroma, but the flavour was still well-balanced. Piney hops and a crisp finish. A good pale ale.

JorisPPattyn (9242) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2006
Pale amber-gold, fully clear; with a medium, just off-white head. Bit of iodium nose, seaweed, pale malts, peanuts. High restsweetness, high grain level. I think "crisp" is the word, with means usually not enough hops, and often adjuncts; There’s hops here, but they are not really assertive. Restsugars give lots of slickness, nearly cloying. Not their best offering IMO.

phaleslu (9019) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2011
Draft sample at the Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival. Pours a clear gold color with a finger-thick white head. Aroma of grassy and citrusy hops, pale malts, sugar, straw, and cereal. The flavor is along those same lines, with a little bit of mild spice. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, grassy mouthfeel. Reading this description, it doesn’t seem like much but this was a nice, easy drinking beer.

DuffMan (9018) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2008
Clear, bright brassy orange-golden. Lively aroma of stonefruits (peaches mostly) and clean pale malt. Crisp pale malt palate with a subtle and refreshing fruity hop finish of moderate bitterness. Very nice, and extremely sessionable!

3fourths (9015) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 Grainy nose, flavor is rotten vegetables, salty bread and crackers, and soil. Could this be a bad sample? Tastes similar to Alaskan Amber and even the ESB... I just don’t have a taste for these... perhaps they yeast that ABC uses?

Pours hazy yellow with a decent off-white head and a fragrant floral aroma. Crisp malt flavor with some lemon and subtle hop bitterness. Not bad.
