I expected more - Deep orange colored brew, liveley carbonation. Rocky off white lasting head. Very light dough nose. Kind of soapy taste. Oily light - weak hop taste. Chalky aftertaste. WEIRD beer.

Before i start i have to say i might be a little bias, this brew being from my home town has kinda grown with me. Thanks to jeff for getting this beer to me all the way out here in oregon. Pours a nice amber color with a great off-white head. The beer is very clear and the head stays for quite a while. Aroma is malty and very sweet. Taste is nice and malty with a slight amout of hops that give a very slightly bitter end. Sort of a spice or fruit taste to it. Dry and smooth. I love this beer. I alway enjoy wearing my cisco brewery sweatshirt around oregon.

Deep golden/amber color. Aroma is sweet malt and caramel. Taste is a little flat, with some hops. Not too bad, but a little pricey for what you get

Bottled conditioned with a hazy orangy hue and a big frothy head, excellent lace. The aroma hints of grapefruit, orange, lime, moderate sweet malts, and earthy yeast esters. The taste starts acidic and fruity with an orange rind and lime twist on top. Subdued bitterness and chalky yeast undertones. The mouthfeel is soft and dry. This beer is so tart it could pass for a fruit beer, strangely refreshing.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2005 A good pale ale, with a golden color along with a tannish head. Strong in flavor and price. It’s Cisco’s flagship, so it’s easier to find somewhat than their other beers.

A good strong beer. Some salty undertones which are quite intriguing. A medium, toned color. A vivid aroma that makes its presence constantly known.

Cloudy orange color with a head that's quite entertaining to pour with. Nice bready aroma with some sort of sour fruit taste. Tasty for an English Pale.

This is where judging a beer gets hard-got this bottle from Happy Deli for $5 for a 12 oz(didn't notice until I got it home that I'd paid that much). But what is hard is that it seemed more like a belgian ale. Big hiss of CO2 upon opening, huge fluffy head and a hazy golden appearance. Between the carbonation level and esters, almost seemed belgian in character. So I enjoyed it, but was not at all to style, so let's just leave it at that.

Hmmmmmmmm.... what to say what to say..... Pours a hazy golden yellow with a large head... took quite sometime to go down. First immpresion of this beer was not the greatest. However the more I tasted the more I began to enjoy it. Drinkable I must say, however something in there that I just can't put my finger on. Overall not to bad.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2004 On tap at the Blind Tiger Ale House in NYC...
Hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is of honey, lemon, apricot and/or peach. Excellently-balanced flavor with blasts of red apple, apricot and a hint of toffee. Medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.
