UPDATED: JUN 5, 2007 A good pale ale. Not my favorite but it holds its own. Color was nice, and had a bit of a citrus flavor.

RERATE: On tap at MacGregor’s in Henrietta. The aroma and flavor are light but not watery. The hops are present but not dominant. The body is just about right with no resiny harshness. This is a very drinkable beer with plenty of quality texture and flavor without being too in-your-face.

pours yellowish golden with a nice thick off white head and good lacing. sweet malt aroma with just a hint of hops. pronounced hop taste, but not as much bite. sweet and sour in the middle with fresh fruit fading to a light bitter finish that hangs around lightly on your tongue with a litte fruit (pear or apple maybe) hint. quite nice and very smooth feel.

Good stuff. Nice departure from most pale ales. I'm not even sure if this IS a pale ale. It may be it's own style. Balance towards hops, which is nice, with enough body to hold up the other end. Great aroma.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 16, 2003
Floaties. Orange marmalade appearance, no head. Citrus, spice, pungent. Jumps from the glass. Hoppy, sour and metallic. Acidic and a lot of carbonation. Better than some.

More aggressively hopped than I had expected. Very good. Strong grapefruity hop presence but still well balanced with a nice mild malt foundation. Finished clean and fast. Beautiful clear dark amber with little head.

Maybe this should not be had draft on the East Coast. I found it pleasant, but not as impressive as the other reviewers seem to have. An adequate golden ale, no more. Not unpleasant in any way. Sweet malt, floral and aromatic hops, with a bitter finish. But I got none of the characteristics of a Cascade hop, no citrus, no pine.

Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2003 Pale Amber coloured, slightly hazy. Fine white head, long-lasting, heavier than average carbonation. Classic cascade hop smell, but not totally killing the malt. Moderatly sweet in mouth, medium bodied, slightly acidic with its grapefruit and lemon notes, cascade hops make for a moderatly to heavy bitter finish, but biscuity malt never fails to keep it balanced. Thanks CapFlu!

Pours a light amber with moderate white head, nice lacing. The hop taste is nothing like I remember it, it has been a few years since I've had this beer and the California brewers have since gone crazy, moderating this beer somewhat. A very nice APA though.

A nice American IPA, not overly hopped like some west coast IPAs but done tomeet more commercial tastes. Clean and refreshing on a hot summer day. My favorite Anchor brew.
