I’ve held off from buying this long enough that i finally gave in when i saw it on sale. Aroma is faint yet it suprised me with a touch of hop and caramel. Glooms in the glass a bronze gold color and has a rough and sticky head. Flavor is light and has a tea and bitter hops that also has a pinch of pine attached to it. Weak malt and caramel character and seems a little watered down. Okay pale ale, i guess but i wouldnt recommend it to anyone.

This is not as bad as i was thinking or how i was told...but has a solid offering in the bitterness dept. good looking brew, makes a great half and half...i’d get it again if it was on special.

Pretty good all around and as previously mentioned nothing too pointed or too outstanding to expound or remark on upon. Some maty flavors, though not at all sweet, some hops yet toned down well, pale amber color short of brilliant as advertised :-). More than fair for the style.

RazingDreamz (123) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Light citrus aroma, dark amber color, light-medium bodied, slightly creamy, hops expressed, but not strong. This is a tasty beer, but I feel it needs more character.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Bottle: pours vivid cinnabar in color, adorned by a rugged, near white head. One point off appearance for being anything but "pale". Spotty lace. Mouthwatering PNW hop aroma... pineapple, cherry, watermelon, hay... and sugary malt. Simple citric hop and rye cracker flavor. Light, watery body leads to a delicate hoppy aftertaste. Friendly brew, no flaws, yet one-dimensional. No guts, no glory.

dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2005
This beer pours a rich amber color with a 1/4 in. tan head. Very hoppy flavor with bread smell and taste. Cheers!

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Pours amber with a fully receding white head. Aroma of caramel and flowery hops. Taste is light sweet with a long spicy bitterness. Average pale ale in a fancy bottle.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 23, 2005
On tap. Pours orange amber with little head. Smooth, light mouthfeel. Strong hops, but overly malty and lasting, offensive sourness at the finish. Not very good.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Draught. Thick off white head that laced the glass. Appealing malty, brown sugar and flowery hop aroma. Buttery caramel, brown sugar and citrus hop flavors are well balanced. Mild hop bitterness. Smooth finish wit the hoppiness creeping up the palate into the nose. Very good.

hershiser2 (1903) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 Bottle. Amber with a medium head. Aroma of bittersweet Cascade hops. Flavors of more of the cascade hops, but not overly bitter. Very well balanced and extremely drinkable. Way to go Doggie Style. I always knew I liked ya.
