UPDATED: FEB 15, 2006 bottle. I likey. Quite cirusy-perfumey flavor...flowers. Aroma of strong orange-grapefruit cocktail. smooth, pleasant. a bit fuller than average pale ale. odd coppery amber color w/ beige head. Drinking these gets old after you have a couple, it’s kinda blandish and has some off mix of hops and malt. The label also irritates me to great extent.

Amber, creamy off white head. Moderate piney, resinous hops and rich malt in the aroma. Strong hop flavor with decent malt backbone. Smooth, medium body. Good brew.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Copper/amber coloring with little to no head. A good pale ale, but not quite sweet enough for my tastes (I like IPAs though so take that as you will) Medium body and an all around decent beer. Great for something you can get at the grocery store.

On tap at the Blake Street Tavern in a 4 oz. sample glass. Aroma may have unfairly suffered points because of smoke in the bar. Had a copper color. Slightly more aggressive than your average pale ale with bright grassy hop aromas and flavor.

GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 1, 2006
Copper colour with a nice lasting off-white head. Sweet citrus fruit aroma with notes of eucalyptus. I found the flavours in this one quite boring, Some malt and citrus flavours, Very light bodied. Very clean dry finish.

12 oz bottle Pours a clear amber with a frothy off white head that has great lacing and is very lasting. Aroma is of hoppy spruce with touches of citrus and alcohol. It is dry medium body. Lively with a bitter finish. A good aftertaste. A very tasty pale ale. I enjoyed it very much.

IrishBoy (4085) - Bakersfield, California, USA - DEC 26, 2005
A nice reddish amber ale with a thin tan head. Some bitterness, but not as much as I expected for a pale ale. Quite drinkable, I will finish this bottle after I complete the rating with a shrimp cocktail.

This is pretty much your standard golden ale. It has a bit of bitterness, yeah, but a pale ale??? C’mon?! Boring...

Bottle. Pours , well, not all that pale. Lets try an amber honey color, with no head what so ever. Nose is malty, pink grapefruit, hint of carmel, and ...coffee. Huh. Yup, definitely instant coffee. This one is packed with flavor, bold. Very very malty. grapefruit juice, carmel, light hop bitterness. Finishes with some pleasant floral bitterness, but overpowering by any means. Feel is on the thin side, downright watery, but that doesn’t detract too much from the beer; the lighter feel in a way compliments the refreshing nature of the flavor. Yea, pretty solid pale. Not earth shattering or anything, but definitely worth a taste.
