Pale golden, low head. Hoppy but a lifeless aroma of lemon-peels, graoefruit and hay. flavour of grapefruit and green hops. The body is really thin and the malt is quite hard to detct. Short grapefruity finish.

It seems like Anderson Valley has its own uniqueness to it. It has that wierd coppery/metallic wierd grainy malty flavor to pretty much all thier beers. This one is certainly no exception. Pours a very light amber- more of a light copper color with a pretty decent head. Aroma is metallic and earthy with hops and a little bit of flowery hops in there as it warms. Flavor is lightly malty, light biscuit, some metallic hints, hoppy, a little bitter in the end. Finishes crisp and dry with a metallic aftertaste. Reminds me of a pocono pale ale overall.

I love the golden color, the pure white foamy head, the light hop scent, the fruity malt profile. It’s light enough to serve as a refreshing summer session beer. Bit overpriced though for what it is.

A light hoppy ale, with some malty fruit notes. A poured a clear golden color with a nice white head that seemed to have good retention. A nice mlaty aroma.

sweet floral banana nose, like what I’d expect a fragrant fruity tea to smell like, white lacey head, clear golden body, good hop bite in th einitial flavor, finish is kind of a skanky malt flavor, not a bad pale, but i probably won’t buy it again if that’s any indication, bought this at sundance and everybody in the store was yelling happy birthday, i fucking love eugene

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 (5266) - 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 (2392) - 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.

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.
