a decent ale with citrusy hops which come through both in flavor and aroma. crisp and easy on the way down. nice malt character to balance it out.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Nice froth head with very slight lacing on a mildly cloudy orange pour. Perfumey hops in the aroma. GREAT citrusy (grapefruit) hops with some bitter piney hints in the flavor as well. Pretty nice APA.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
This is my favorite Anchor beer so far. A very solid ale. Not as much hops as I would’ve expected from an A.P.A. but very good, well-balanced beer. This goes on my list of really solid American ales, right up there with the Rogue stuff I’ve been downing recently.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Pours slightly hazy gold with a 1/2 inch ivory head, lots of chunky lace. Smells of floral hops, bitter and lightly cirusy. Taste is floral bitter hops up front. Tea leaf flavors. Crisp, lightly sweet pale malt. The citrus has disappeared. Not much to it but well balanced and a nice crisp mouth. I wouldn’t say it’s light bodied but relatively light on the tongue but stil full flavored. A well crafted treat that "goes down easy". This beer is a nice gateway drug for introducing people to hoppy beers, not off-putting like some pale ales can be.

Bottle. Aroma has a hint of fruit. Almost clear, golden colour. Small white head. Aromatic hop flavour.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Bottle: Transparent golden accented by yellower tinges with a white diminishing head. Aromas of light hops, hay and malts. Flavor was slightly sweet, with lighter hop finish, shower nice balance. Would be a good session beer.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Clear amber pour with orange highlites supporting a tall light tan head and average lacing. Aroma of fresh mown grass, hay, yeast, hops, malt and citrus. Crisp flavor with restrained sweetness, nuts, light caramel and a solid hop presence. Fantastically dry finish that’s so clean and quick you wonder where it went. If you’re in the mood for a classic Western Pale, this a fine choice.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (650ml). Amber pour, lively, but all I have to say is "Crystal Hops". That’s all I tasted, all I remember. If you like that, you’ll love this. I had a series of bad experience with brewing my own Czech pilsner with Saaz (?) hops years ago, so I can’t personally rate this one very high. But that’s me.

ukoolaid (579) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 24, 2005
Bottle. Pours an orangy amber with dissapearing head. Aroma is sweet fruity yeast. Taste is decently hoppy with fruit.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2005
Pours a beautiful golden colour. Lasting off-white head. Very fruity aroma which turns slightly acidic as it warms. Sweet and full body, organic and warming. Very nice ale.
