OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2005
Couleur ambrée aux reflets rougeâtres. Belle mousse crémeuse blanche concassée. Arômes sérieusement houblonnés suggérant la terre, le persil et une touche d’agrume. Malt biscuit, un peu de caramel et une méga dose de houblon étant beaucoup trop pour le style. Finale sèche, exemple classique de houblonnage à froid. Une pale ale déguisée en potion magique de houblon. Bouteille au Moan And Dove, 21 Mai 2005.

Suttree (5144) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Copper, big firm rocky head. Peppery, smoky aroma. Spicy, resiny hop flavors dominate. Crisp and quenching. This is an easy drinking and satisfying brew. I like it.

PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2005
Bottle. Pours an ever so slightly hazy golden/light orange/yellow. Large bubbles sat on the bottom of the beer and broke away a handful at a time. Head fell to a thin layer of lace. Aroma is very mild citrus hops, very clean to start with, and ended a little metallic. Flavor is a pleasant grapefruit, lemon, soap mix, nice honey suckle subtle sweetness, mild the hops are but also somewhat sharp on the palate, and also finishes with a metallic twang. No prominent malt detected. Altogether quite bland, much like a lawnmower beer with a lemon in it. Though I not complaining about drinking this on a hot day. Body is quite thin and bubbly on the tongue. Drinability is medium/high. “Really did not dig the aroma, but flavor is very nice if you want a light beer with some APA flavor.”

Dorwart (2375) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2005
Large white head with very good carbonation. Settles slowly. Light fruity aroma with pears and a bit of floral hops. Color is a nice clear dark gold. Flavor is light and crisp with a little fruit, dry hops and a little bitterness. Finish is pretty clean and dry. An ok pale ale but nothing special.

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2005
Golden yellow in color, as they say. But nothing out of the ordinary as far as crisp-clean light or dryness. I tasted the honey, and felt it was ok.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - APR 8, 2005
Golden color, fuller white head, sticky lace. Apples in the aroma accompanied by some mild hops. Flavor is sweetish up front followed by some unpleasant dryness and lingering grassy bitterness. Medium bodied, way too dry. Pretty unpleasant.

bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 4, 2005
bottle from brickskeller. aroma is hops, herbal, piney. looks moderate gold, slight lacing on white head. flavor starts honeyish with malt fading into a nice crisp dry finish.

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Citrusy, bitter, dry Pale Ale. Unusual taste and flavor. Not exactly what I expected. Salty, bit of honey flavor with good kick of hops.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Much more Golden ale in character. Very little malt and some citrus and grass hop notes. Very light in color maybe 3.5-4 lovibond. Mild sweetness, and grainy mouthfeel.
