tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Bottle. Pours copper with small beige head. The aroma has hops, earth, and a bit of dark fruit. The flavor initially has a sharp Cascade bitterness, then fades to some earthy and fruity tones. Mild toast in the finish. Decent session brew.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2007 (Bottled, 4.7% ABV) Clear, deep copper color with a small, but tight head. Oaky-aromatic-hoppy, fruity aroma with caramely maltiness, and some currants. Bitter-hoppy, acidic, oaky and somewhat aromatic flavor with mildly roasty caramely maltiness and butter. Bitterness grasps firmly but briefly in the finish, while the dry, grassy hoppiness stays for quite a while. Light to medium-bodied, somewhat fizzy-carbonated palate. A bit too thin and compromised to be truly enjoyable. Quite bitter-like for a pale ale. A nice session beer, though - and very nice one to find in a Finnish supermarket!

Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2006
Nicely hopped pale ale. Good amber color, somewhat cloudy. Pleasant hop and malt aroma. Lasting head and lacing are a plus. Malt flavor doesn’t come through, but the floral hops are really appealing. A very drinkable beer.

Furseth (2080) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2006
Bottle: Amber Colour, with a Nice cremy White foam. Lots of Casade hops. Aroma is Fruity and sweet malts. Long nice bitter finish. A great beer.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Clear orange-amber with a smallish foamy beige somewhat diminishing head. Typical citrus / light resin sweet hop aroma, with sweet light toasty caramel malt backing, a little floral, whiff of yeast; above average but not by much - pleasing, fades quickly. Taste is also orange/citrus, a litle lemon rind bitterness and not so much malt - has a medium linger and finishes bitter, somewhat harshly so. Average body, not much carbonation after 30 seconds or so, astringent - drinkable, sweet, a little dry and harsh.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours amber golden with an ever so slight haze and an off-white head leaving a neat lacework. Lovely citrusy hop aroma. Medium-bodied, lightly caramelish with notes of citrus. Short, dry finish, but not overly bitter. 220406

garmonbozia (429) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - MAY 3, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2006 12oz bottle. a bit to carbinated. Doesn’t have the standard floral or hops nose that some American Pales have. It pours a deep orange and ruby color.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 30, 2006
[Tap – Blooms & Brews, Silverton Oregon]
(Oregon Craft Brewfest at The Oregon Garden) A good golden colored pale ale with a nice aroma. This tasted like a good microbrew that was fresh. Liked the hops and aromas this was a clean clear and good easy drinking beer.

Pretty nice balance of hops and malts, but not overly spectacular. However, I give it credit for drinkability.

undsioux7 (871) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2006
UPDATED: APR 5, 2007 Re-rate: the last few I have had have been horribly metallic and just bad. I will only take a few points off for now, but if I get another bad one, I will have to take it down further. based on some other ratings it looks like this just isn’t as good anymore. I also think it is one of those beers that has to be drank fresh cause it can go downhill fast.
