4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crystal clear gold with a small white head. The aroma is slightly toasted malt with a touch of caramel and citrusy hops. The flavor is even more malty, and very tasty. Hops are a bit subdued but work wonderfully with the malt. Extremely well balanced and very tasty. Best actual pale ale I’ve had in a long time.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 355 ml bottle, from CITTI-Markt Flensburg. ABV is 4.9% according to front label, according to rear label (from German importer BraufaktuM) it is 4.6%. BB date 30.07.2013. Malts are Pilsener, Pale (Maris Otter), Münchener, Caramel. Hops are Fuggle, Cascade, Centennial, Chinook. Deep golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of caramel, orange marmalade and American hops, also some herbal notes. Smooth mouthfeel and flavour, moderate carbonation. Not too sweet, a little caramel, herbal hops but not very bitter. Not bad at all despite BB date, but will sample again when I get a fresher bottle, might be even better fresh.

A well made pale ale. Too straightforward to make me love it but if looking for a safe pale ale without unique hoppiness this is a refreshing and solid choice.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
4th July 2014, on tap pint in The Public House Bar, Venetian, Las Vegas. Solid enough Pale Ale with plenty of citrus hop notes in both the nose and taste, crisp and refreshing. The bar is fairly dark so the exact colour eluded me, light amber maybe? Medium bodied, if a little over carbonated for my UK palate. Came very cold, flavours appeared gradually as the beer warmed a little and became more bitter as time went on.

A "California Pale Ale". Doesn’t taste that great, actually. I would be interested in trying more from this "style", if they exist.

It's a good pale. Honestly, I had it a couple hours ago at a BBQ and don't remember much about it, other than, "Hey, that's good."

12oz bottle from the "Beer Shoppe". Pours a clear golden orange color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus, and pine. Taste mimics the nose. Decent, but nothing special here. Your run of the mill pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a very solid beer loads of citrus and floral notes on the nose which are balanced well by the malty backbone which shines through at the end
