A honey gold, pale ale that is crisp and clear, with an unusual lightness and dryness.

Bottled. Golden colour, creamy head. Appley nose with some grass. Sweet with light body and lightly rounded mouthfeel. Lightly orangey finish with medium bitterness. I am getting increasingly underwhelmed by Anderson Valley’s products, which I used to love. This beer I both could, and intend to, live without in the future.

Ahh, hops. How I’ve missed your dominating character in some of my more recent rates. I promise I’ll never leave you this long again. Slight toasted malt. Spicy hops. Finish could have a bit more malt to balance out the bitter grapefruit. Not great but my first IPA in too long.

i dunno why anyone drinks pale ales when there are ipa´s around, anyway, this is quite muted, hint of white grape, light bitterness

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Farm fresh grassy and pine aroma. Clear light golden in color. Crispy, leafy hop flavor - very tangy and citric. Lingers nicely. Light in body and tingly on the tongue. This beer is a pale ale winner.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Soft golden color with a creamy thick white head that left a wall of "lace" on the opposite side of the glass from which I was drinking. Aromas of flight citrus (tangerine), and some pine. Not overwhelming, though. Smooth carbonation, with light bicuit malt backing upfront, bright hoppy flavors. Clean finish that leaves a slight hint of citrus. Great session brew. Cheers, to those cats in Boontville!

Pours deep gold with a big, creamy, white head. Aroma of citrus, hops, malt. Tastes hoppy, malty, with citrus and slight dryness at the finish. Some wheaty flavor here, and a pretty firm mouthfeel. Good hop and citrus presence also.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 3, 2004
Pours with a large, frothy head, the body has a slightly cloudy appearance; aroma is grassy and flowery; fairly dry and light, with a lingering aftertaste.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Golden color with a small head. Aroma is very faint but floral. Very thin tasting and light flavor. Next time I’ll reach for the Hop Ottin over this one. This seemed to be more of a blonde ale than an APA.

DarkElf (3035) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUN 21, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2004 (22-ounce bottle, $3) Nothing all that special here; A lighter flavored pale ale with a mild malt flavor that is somewhat dominated by a moderate bitterness from the fresh tasting hops; This really needs a more robust maltiness; It's also mildly sour, but like grapefruit, so it's not a bad sour; The fairly dry palate is medium bodied but perhaps just a tad thin; The nose is moderately hoppy but there's little else going on; Light golden in color and somewhat cloudy; The head is off-white in color, has solid retention, and leaves a fair amount of patchy lacing
