bottle. Pours a hazy light orange color, thick foamy inch of head, enough active carbonation to keep it around. Muted, bready aroma, some light sweetness, and some faint floral hop notes. Flavor shows some light spiciness, smooth sweet biscuits, and some crisp citrus. Flavor shows much improvement over the nose. Palate is also good- light, crisp, and clean. Overall, a pretty good pale with superb drinkability.

Bottle- Pours a nice golden color with a small head and some lacing. Mild citrus aroma with some fruit and fresh grain. Mild malt flavor with a bit of sweetness and citrus. Has a nice bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, crisp, smooth and refreshing. very well balanced. Goes down way to easy. Very good APA.

unclemattie (4119) - Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2012
12oz bottle. Golden color, white foam. Aroma of hops, nice citrus, pine; malt character has a good amount of honey and pale malts. Pale malt, tastes of honey. Sharp hop bite makes this beer SOOO DELICIOUS. Finishes with loads of spruce and grapefruit. I could drink this brew all day long! (3346)

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2003 Re-rate- Clean and crisp, but with a full flavor. If you're a hop-head, this beer is a must. I've had inconsistent batches of this brew. Sometimes it is out of this world, and other times it has an unappealing winey after taste....

Yellow-golden in color with a nice hoppy flavor. hints of malts yet refreshing in taste and not too filling. nice bitterness to it with a dry finish.

I might have made a mistake by trying this after sampling the Belks ESB...but the hops still came through loud & clear when I first tasted it. Nice maltiness up front followed by a pronounced citrusy hoppiness. smooth palate with decent carbonation. Very nice beer.

Very traditional Anderson Valley beer. Very smooth and aroma was excellent for a american pale ale. After taste is nice and refreshing. Well crafted beer that I higly recommend.
