COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our namesake ale represents everything a good, well balanced pale ale should be: malty but not to sweet, refreshing but not too bitter, full-bodied but not too heavy, lively but not over carbonated. A clean, everyday beer that leaves your palate begging for more. 1.054 OG 32 IBU 5.5%ABV

DocJitsu (1180) - Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours a clear light golden with a nearly pure white, quickly dissipating head. A nose comprised of notes of banana and green grape. Lagerish and pilsnery, if you will. Mouthfeel is certainly more full-bodied for a pilsner style lager. A little carbonation burn at the finish. this is a Candaian lager in full on collision with a Czech pilsner--on steroids. Not in my wheelhouse, but respectable.

Galleyboy37 (15) - California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Nice, golden pour. A light, even, well balanced ale, with malty flavors coming to the front. Very drinkable, this would make a good session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Alpine, Sampled first, its a nice smelling and tasting beer, solid malt really benign beer, no flaws means a 3 in book.

BucannonXC5 (1032) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Type: Draft Glass: 12-oz. pint glass From: Alpine Beer Company in Alpine, Calif. Price: $4.50 (I think) Misc.: Had on Jan. 5, 2013 Poured a golden clearer color with 1-2 fingers (when I got it) of white head. Pretty good lacing on the sides and nice retention on the top all the way down. Smelled pale malts, butter, honey, lemon grass and some bread. Tasted similar to the smell. Butter, honey, lemon and grassy. Some light pine notes, but as citrusy as I would have thought. Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Slightly bitter finish. A decent pale ale overall. Considering I was drinking most of it in the cold darkness in the back patio, these ratings could change if I tried it again.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - DEC 12, 2012
A touch of diacetyl in my sample, but didn’t detract from this big, fruity Pale. Lots of hop action, perhaps a little unbalanced, but quenching and highly drinkable.

Huhzubendah (2820) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 11, 2012
The beer is clear and golden colored with an inch of pure white head that leaves a significant amount of sticky lacing on the glass. The aroma is malt forward, with a bit of hops and citrus. It actually smells like a lager. Good flavor, dominated by a slightly sweet malt bill. A light helping of bitter hops presents itself near the finish. Light bodied and pretty easy to drink. Overall, this was a decent beer, but nowhere near the quality of my favorite beers from Alpine. Light and refreshing with a nice, simple flavor. Worth a try.

bytemesis (4244) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Tap. Pours clear pale golden, small white head, some lacing. Aroma is grain and honey, no real hops presence. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, bit of bitter. Medium body. Seems more like a golden than an APA to me.

GT2 (9241) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Tap at Alpine. Pours clear light golden. Medium white head. Soapy lacing. Nose is lemon, grass, air freshener. Taste is butter, astringent chemicals, sharp lemon zest, herbal grass, more diacetyl. Papery finish. Poor effort from Alpine.
