3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
This was not overly complex or flavorful. It essentially has a taste of mild hops and grain... however I personally felt in the simplicity it was quite palatable and drinkable. One of my favorites.

A better than average pale ale. Not particulary hoppy, but with a nice caramel balance.

Rating #1037 - March 26, 2014 - Finally shook off a cold and can resume enjoying the life of a beer sales rep. Dark amber pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is sweet citrusy, tangerine notes, mild grassiness.Taste is a blast of citrusy sweetness, tempered by a non-threatening hoppy bitterness. Lots of nice nutty, caramel malt texture as well. Certainly bold in hop flavour, but fits the session profile of the APA quite well at 5.8% - a bite worthy of its namesake.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 12/13/2014. Pours lightly hazy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/floral hops and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Light floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, grass, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of citrus/floral hops and bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good English pale ale. All around good balance and robustness of citrus/floral hops and bready malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2014 Color dorado oscuro, bien gasificada, cabeza muy duradera, de burbujas muy finas, como claras a punto de turrón. Se antoja mucho. Aroma a lúpulo y caramelo. Sabor amargo pero bien equilibrado. Excelente textura en boca.

Bottle at the hotel in San Diego. Clear golden beer with a rich lasting offwhite head. Hoppy fruity aroma, bready, caramel, biscuits, wheat, some herbal notes. Hoppy floral flavor, bready, grainy, a bit artificial. Hoppy bready finish with hay and fruity notes.

Light amber/copper color. Mild hops/citrus smell. Creamy head that disapears fast. Simple taste but enough to satisfy.

Bottle from unknown. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color, little to no tan head. Aroma really strange, dried fruit, strawberries. Body lively with a subtle lingering bitterness. Way different.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprising enough a Mexican beer that isn’t the same old taste that is a typical Mexican beer. The head that pours off this amber coloured beer is excellent. While the smell does have the tones of a Mexican beer the taste doesn’t follow suit. The beer has hints of a typical pale but with some hops added in, while it doesn’t overwhelm the palate. Overall an excellent beer to try.

3/25/2010. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Citrus, malt, caramel and fruity aromas. Nice hoppy flavors, but a bit buttery. Still not bad at all.
