COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our American style pale ale is medium to full bodied with an assertive hop bitterness and aroma. The flavor and fragrance of American hops mush with a strong malt backbone.

Pale amber with a decent white head. Light citrus hop aroma with a little bit of a bready malt aroma. Flavor is noce, quick bitter hop bite followed by a maltiness that lingers in the back of the taste. The body is medium with a quick bitter finish.

Aurelius (4680) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2004
Butter toffee and kumquat aroma. Honey gold, fun skull logo. Sturdy hopping, citrusy. Very, very clean drinking, moderate lingering hops. Medium light sweetness. Brewed properly for the style and mass consumption.

hopscotch (10142) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2003
CAPITOL HILL: Sparkling clear, golden ale with a large, creamy, white head. Incredibly thick, creamy lacing. Lots of citrusy and piney hops in the aroma; grapefruit, lemon peel, juniper berries and jalapeno pepper. The flavor is bitter throughout with plenty of citrus fruit, caramel notes and just a whisper of mint. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Very lengthy, bitter finish.

jgb9348 (5124) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Orange colour-very clear with a thin dense white head. Aroma from hops-floral and citrusey-not too potent with some off-aromas. Medium-bodied; Spicey potent hop character and actually fairly balanced with malt. Aftertaste bittered from the hops-not overly so, however! Overall, a definately good APA representation, worth trying! I got this growler courtesy of my sister's fiance and sampled it on 28-November-2003.

i liked this pale ale. Pale ales seem to freuqently be either hit or miss, i'd call this a hit minus. Wouldn't mind having again.

BBB63 (6474) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2003
On tap at DC postal location: Copper hue with medium head and no lacing, thin to medium-bodied. Fruity hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pine, some toasted malt sweetness is there. The taste is bitter with a piney undertone, lacks balance. Metallic finish, Watery and lively mouthfeel. Less than average APA, hoppy beers are okay, this one is not.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2003
At the Baltimore location: Dark copper beer. Bit of the hop character here, but with that "metallic" edge common to American pales. Average.

Clear amber-gold color. Caramel aroma with some bitter notes to it. Refreshing flavor with an aftertaste of tonic water. There's a hint of anise or licorice in there, too. It's different, but good.
