Golden with 2 fingers of white head. Malty with a slight hop bitterness. I didn’t taste the dry hopping in this guy.

Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Sweet, malty aroma with some hop background. More sweet and malty than hoppy. Light amber with a medium head, rather creamy. A solid beer, albeit utterly generic. Good at what it does, though.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 A very refreshing pale ale with a golden color and a hoppy finish. Aromas of caramel, pine, allspice and cloves. Full bodied and creamy. Pairs well with spicy food.

Bottle. Pours a pale orange, thin off white head, not much lacing on my glass. Aroma isn’t very strong, some hops but not much else. A crisp malt flavor, nicely hopped but not too much, some citrusy flavors in there too. Hops dominate the finish. Not bad, not outstanding, I’d definetly drink it again but I’ve had better pale ales.

Light head, great lacing. Aroma and taste of pine and resin with a perfect caramel malt backbone. Medium carbonation and a slight, short-lasting bitterness. Not as well balanced as the Union Jack, but highly sessionable.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 + mooie geel gouden kleur.
+ fris fruitige zoete geur.
1ste smaak - groente, 2de smaak - bitter, 3de smaak - door de bittere smaak is de 3de smaak niet goed proefbaar.

Pours golden with a medium head. Doesn’t retain well. Strong citrusy flavors along with strong hops. Very refreshing beer.

12oz Bottle - Light copper color and makes about an inch worth of fine white bubbly head. Smells well hopped, fruity, spicy. Flavor is not too bitter, slightly sweet, hops make a slight tartness come through, tasty. Mouthfeel is light to medium body with moderate carbonation. This is drinkable stuff, a nice session beer.

Pours a nice light copper-gold color nice white head. smells of cascade thin crisp flavor slight hop bitterness similar to Mirror Pond. This is a good beer a basic California Pale Ale smooth well balanced. A good representation of the style a little light on flavor for me but a good beer for sessioning.
