Editor’s Note: Previously known as Yellowtail Pale Ale

The beer that launched Ballast Point. Our original Pale Ale is a rich golden brew, crafted with aromatic German hops and rounded out with a blend of American and Munich malts. While it’s hopped like a lager, we ferment it like an ale to create a smooth, bright taste that has just a hint of fruit and spice. It’s extremely drinkable, like a Kolsch should be, yet complex, like a good craft beer demands.

bottle 12 oz obtained in a trade with Foolish_Mortal - Thanks Brandon!! - Pours golden with a nice short white creamy head and lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Nice malty aroma with a touch of grass. Sweet malty flavor almost like frosted flakes. Light and carbonated perfectly for a great summer beer. This one was just what the doctor ordered after mowing the lawn. Crisp clean and refreshing.

12oz - Aroma is mild carmel malt, hop, and a touch of citrus. Clear yellow with small bubbles, little head and no lacing. Flavor is also mild and matches aroma. Has kind of a poor aftertaste that doesn’t feel very clean.

Terminus (3316) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 17, 2005
bottle-pours bright orange with a small white head around the rim of my glass. herbal, grainy slightly spicy aroma with some fruitiness from the yeast character. flavors have a tea-like component. slightly grainy notes in mid palate with a light dry hop finish of german hops. body is pretty good for this style. lots of malt grain tones in the finsh as well. I think this is pretty good! Are TAR and I the only ones that like this beer?

not a bad beer by any means, just not really a great beer. perfect for someone who has never really tried anything outside of the "coors, mgd, bud" range. Very pale yellow in color with no strong/stand out tastes to speak of.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Corn muffin-like aroma. Poured a transparent pale (urine color to be exact) yellow. Tiny head. Crisp, low carbonation with a touch of malt sweetness in the finish. Very lifeless beer.
