I was very much surprised to find this beer on tap in my own regular pub yesterday. Fruity, ripe apple, floral, malty aroma. Hazy, few off-white head, nice lace. Bit sweet, nice hops, moderate full, fruity. Long hopbitter, grapefruit finish. Very nice beer to drink all evening, but very expensive as well (paid 3.80 a pint).

This is a very good pale ale and one of the original microbrews in the country.

Amber orange color with a fairly rocky light tan head. Definitely cascade everywhere. Light smooth oily body. Very dry finish, almost juniper berry like.

Tons of Cascade hops to sate your appetite. However, I have no appetite for these hops, so the beer left me bummed. Trying to be objective, I suppose it is a quality brew, but not my thing.

Okay, so I know that this is good beer, but I really just donít like it. It just has this bitter-overhopped thing going that isnít agreeing with me. A little more tolerable toward the bottom. Maybe someday I will appreciate it more.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2003 Light brown-yellow color, big foamy head that clings to my glass, grainy aroma. Nice balanced malt and hop flavors, smooth and easy drinking, great session beer, as all the Anchor brews.
