green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 6, 2005
Hazy orange/copper, mostly diminishing head. Light sweetness, very malty, with strong underpinnings of pine resin. Finishes rater bitter but well balanced. The aromatic malts are a bit much but overall enjoyable.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2005
Pours a hazy yellow with a nice amount of foamy white head. Aroma is citrusy and hoppy. Flavor is sweet with a nice hoppy finish. Overall, pretty decent.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2005
Sparkling gold, creamy white head. Nose was loaded with juicy grapefruit notes, light spruce, some caramel, a hint of breadiness with a clean grassy note undertone. Bitterness is up front with grapefruit being the predominate flavor. Lightly sweetened malt plays a very small backup part and rounds this off nicely. Medium bodied, prickly carboantion, crisp, sahara dry bitter finish. Always a good choice for a session IPA in a pinch...

Not a bad offering, but I would’ve liked a little more complexity to this one. Worth a try.

Odeed (1799) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 2, 2005
poured a color very similar to an apple juice color with a big frumpy head.earthy,malty tones filled my nose.the flavors were a combination of malts,hops,ice tea,grass,and earth.the mouthfeel was a little sharp and bitter.overall its ok,not really my thing.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2005
Light amber with some gold accents around the edges. Malt and chocolate fill the nose, with secondary scents of citrus and rock candy. Very nice, plush palate with a creamy mouthfeel, gritty hold and perfect carbonation. Bitter chocolate leads flavour, and the bitterness stretches out a long finish. Another excellent beer from Anchor.

johnyvt (158) - West Hollywood, California, USA - FEB 24, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2005 Draught. Light color. Nice, hoppy smell to it. Tastes like a decent PA, not too strong but unique enough to set it apart. Bubbly taste, finishes dry and slightly hoppy. A very decent session beer.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2005
Bottle. Enticing hop aroma, grapefruit along with subtle undertones of clove and almond essence. Slightly malty with medium length hoppy finish. Some sediment apparant - although I’m not sure if this is a BCA.

One of the better examples of what a pale ale should, nay, must taste like. Fuity, hoppy, bubbly goodness slakes any thirst (well especially the thirst for beer). I like this one.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Light orange. Medicinal aroma that is truly repulsive. It’s like smelling the inside of an antibiotics container, although there are hints of citrus fruits, peach and spicy hops. The flavor, however, is very distinctive, unique and enjoyable. A lovely fruit filled malty sweetness with hints of honey, all balanced by a generous supply of spicy, herbal and citrusy cascade hops. Much better as it warmed. A pretty good beer overall.
