pure in color, very smooth,a nd not too bitter. Heady buzz that comes on fast. Head disapears soon after poured. (maybe a bit too expensive 14$ after tax 12pk [various bottles])

Clear light brown color, big cream colored head. Sweet and grainy scent. Rather bitter taste, also malty. High bitterness. Mellow mouth feel.

Older rating:
Bottle at the Rover in Gothenburg, Sweden.
I do like a lot of the more tasty American beers, and ales in particular, but this one really doesn’t do it for me.
Old score: 5/3/5/3/10

Nice amber colour and small head. It has a fruity aroma (grapefuit?) and sweet taste. Very enjoyable pale ale and a definite recommend.

2beerguys (299) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 9, 2006
The Pale Ale pours with a beautiful color. It has a solid head that lingers well. This ale has a good aroma, and is very hoppy. It carries a bitter aftertaste, but passes the sniffer test.

Bottle: Amber-orange, little head. Aroma and taste are fruity sweet, taste is hoppy and slightly bitter but a bit thin overall.

Capa (2566) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 3, 2006
poured a nice deep reddish gold with a little off white head. Aroma is a sweet citrus and hops with some malt. Has a thin mouth to it with little, if any, bitterness. Has a citrus flavor to it. Also noticed malts and hops. Not bad, but sorta lacking in the taste department

thornecb (5361) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2006
Pours deep copper/amber into a shaker. Citrus and grass notes. Head quickly dissipates to mottled clutches -- no retention whatsoever. Mown grass with bitter aftertaste. Flat.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - FEB 1, 2006
02.01.06 12oz bottle. Burnished copper color with quickly fading whtie head that lingers as a ring. Aroma is slightly sweet, mild citrus-grapefruit, light floral. Flavor is very low key, a real session pale ale, kind of thin and a bit on the watery side. However, this beer has nothing of what I was afraid of - it’s not oxidized, it’s not a diacetyl bomb, and it’s not full of black tea flavors. I’m still looking for evidence of this beer having been dry hopped with a ’load of cascade hops.’ In all, pleasant if unremarkable, I’d be glad to drink it any time (for free).

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Very drinkable APA with nice caramel base and a refreshing grapefruit and pine PNW hop profile that balances the sweetness very well. I think of this as a decent session type beer.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Pours a translucent brown amber with an average foamy off white head. Aroma was a nice caramel malt and orange hop balance. A little light in the aroma overall. Flavor of a caramel malty slightly hoppy balance. A little piney/dry hop. Nothing over the top thats for sure. Went well with the spicye Mexican dish I had for dinner.
