Citrusy, bitter, dry Pale Ale. Unusual taste and flavor. Not exactly what I expected. Salty, bit of honey flavor with good kick of hops.

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.

tomxcs (321) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Hazy reddish honey color; small, quickly dissapating head. Light citrus hop aroma, backed by a hint of sweet wine. Flavor is sweet and lightly malty, though rather watery. Dry, grassy hops. Drinkable but nothing special

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 10, 2005
Bottle. Pours hazy amber-gold with a small white head that diminishes mostly and leaves a trace of lacing. Pleasing aroma, with light caramelly malt sweetess and fresh hop citrus notes. Nice balanced flavor with a good hop bite. Light to medium body and crispy carbonation. Not a great pale ale but good with the potential to be a nice session brew.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - JAN 24, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2005 Pours a very pale gold color with not much of a head to brag about. Nice clean fresh aroma of citrus. Flavor is great as are all Anderson valley beers that I have had. I could have done without the metalic finish that this one had though.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 21, 2005
Had this on tap at Bukowski’s in Cambridge, MA. Was not impressed with the $5.75 price tag for this when I got the bill. Ahem, anyways, a very strong aroma for a beer poured in to a shaker and served in a bar. Strong honey, herbal notes, citrus hops, hints of apricots and pears even. Looks similar to the pour on the picture to the left, deep gold with a big white head, mostly clear. Flavor starts and ends hoppy, with a dry pils-like malt mixed with just some plain old base malt. Still, well-constructed, no flaws, as usual with this brewery. A very straightforward APA. Medium body, crisp, hoppy, moderate tingly carbonation.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JAN 5, 2005
Golden-brown, honey-like color with a medium-thick, white head. Smells of citrus lemon and pineapple - refreshingly fruity. Taste is all hops, grassy, pinecones and pineapple. Lots of carbonation and biting tongue flavors. Solid beer, malt is a bit watery.
