ChainGangGuy (4375) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Letís talk beer for a second. Appearance: Pours a golden-orange color and capped by a foamy, white head. Smell: The aroma is a bit meek, but thereís some pale malts, orange blossoms, and a remote scent of wheat. Taste: Flavors tip-toe lightly around the tongue. Gently hopped. Mildly malted. With a mellow, though long-lasting, dry, orange juice-like finish. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Crisp and smooth, with just the right amount of soft carbonation. Drinkability: The is the beer equivalent of a sweet, tiny dove. Unique, and definitely drinkable, but the flavors go from being light to nearly transparent at times.

2beerguys (299) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2007
This pale pours a medium amber color with a small, off-white head. Virtually no lacing. Aroma is of moderate strength cookie malts. Initial taste is light bitter, switching to a light sweet finish with a long duration. Light to medium on the palate, it is both watery and oily with lively carbonation. Reviewed on September 28th, 2006.

The best example of American pales is Sierra Nevada I couldnít agree more with the statement in the description. Unfortunately this beer doensít hold a candle to that beer. Itís light, maybe a little lighter than I would define an APA. It lacks the hop profile i would like from an APA. Thereís some off flavors in this beer that the brewer should really take a look ato.
