Can... Poured a pale orange with a thin white head. Aroma of buttery grains and grassy hops. Well carbonated, and very hoppy flavors right up front. Very herbal with tons of citrus and floral flavors, but also vegies and grains. Caramel malt lend to a hop finish. This is what a pale ale should be!

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 8, 2008
Can, thanks to gunhaver. Pours a golden shade of yellow with a nice white head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is nice and hoppy, focusing on the grapefruit; there is also a bit of pine, some floral notes, and a little bit of a syrupy maltiness. The flavor is fruity hops-- grapefruit, tangerine, strawberry, honeydew. Itís only moderately bitter, with focus more on actual hop flavor. There is a pronounced malty tone that comes out in the finish. Aftertaste is slightly dry. Iím very much enjoying this one.

Can. Pours lightly hazy gold with a thin but lacy white head. Some grapefruit in the nose, biscuit in the taste. Dry finish.

Clear golden-orange color with small white head that laces well. Slightly sweet and spicy toasty grain with some floral and slightly woodsy and fruity hops. Lightly toasted and sweet fruity pale malts perfectly balanced by orangey citrus and floral hop bitterness thatís a bit persistent. Nice light-moderate body that feels even easier due to the high, but no too stingy carbonation. Extremely drinkable Pale that I would definitely buy again.

A pale ale that really is pale! Will wonders never cease? You might judge a book by itís cover, and call it a pale lager, but the creamy head and super flowery hop aroma would tell you that you are wrong. Clean, wonder-bread meets hops flavor falls slightly short of the great aroma, but this is one tasty beer I could drink a few more of. Many thanks to Alex for this great bonus!

CelticBrew (752) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Poured medium golden from 12 oz can. Nice size foamy head. Aroma of hops, wet forrest, citrus, flowers and wet ocean water. Flavour was WOW, light with a nice floral taste with some hop bite. Kinda like a IPA, but a little lighter. Nice and smooth with a nice hop bite. Wonderful example of beer from our friends in Oregon!

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Comes in a cool can. Pours a bubbly gold with a fluffy head that settles to a thin layer. Aroma is piney and floral hops, a touch of citrus and light biscuit/caramel malt. The flavor is a pleasant mix of pine and citrus, light perfume, light biscuit and caramel malts. Light but flavorful. Medium to high carbonation. Good food beer due to itís high drinkability. A very nice apa.

Clear gold in color with frothy white head. Piney aroma with hops and citrus and a hint of malt. Tastes of grapefruit, slightly sweet then sour with a dry hoppy finish - medium body with a fair amount of carbonation. Very enjoyable and refeshing beer.
