Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2005
Bottled. Amber coloured. Fruity aroma. Rather thin and boring flavour with a touch of citrus. Sweetish finish.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Not a very fascinating beer. Gold brown pour. I taste apricots and citrusy hops. The aroma is more impressive than the flavor in this one.

6/4/05: Bottle.
Floral nose. Hoppy flavor (floral and perfume) with some malty-ness mixed in. Cascade hops (?) Also, slightly citrus-ie.

oh6gdx (24920) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2005
Bottled. Copperish red, foamy beige head. Sweet caramellish hoppy aroma. Raspberry at first but quickly turns into fruitish hoppy flavour. Hoppy bitter finish. Pleasant one.

KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Floral nose with a golden color. A little too hoppy at first, but that gives way to a bit of the malty stuff.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Still looking copper ale with minimal head. Fresh and fruity Cascade aroma backed by malt. Very clean and straight ahead complicated by some herbal and spicy tones. Decent body but low carbonation that makes for a less than stellar palate. Well balanced and pleasant finishing bitterness. Not a bad made Pale but lacking in any distinguishing quality.

dibeling (1) - USA - MAY 29, 2005 does not count
Poured a nice amber color with a head that lingered for a bit. Nice hoppy taste that left citrus bitterness on the tongue. Fairly decent beer.

nick76 (4370) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2009 The aroma is very hoppy and sweet with plenty of malt, sour dough bread, and nuts to balance. The choice of hops give it a smell reminiscent of spruce pines. The appearance is not bad either. It has a copper color and pours a nice head with some lacing. The taste of this ale is bitter at first, but then quickly gives way to toasted and caramel malts. The finish is buttery and somewhat nutty. Well done.

KUEric (934) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2005 Bottle: A crisp quick hitting beer. HAs a hoppy flavor to it and a nice light copper color. Dry is a good descriptor, so many beer snobs who love the smooth porters won’t like this one, but for an everyday or lots of them beer its pretty good.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Pours a clear copper with a rocky ivory head. No lace. Grassy and fruity nose with some hints of citrusy hops. Eeesh. This is one haphazard beer. Lightly fruity and really bitter and not in a good way. The flavors do not mesh well. Not tasty at all. I honestly had to plow my way through this one. A dry mouth. I thought is was really hard to screw up a pale ale. most are at least average tasting. I’ve tried this beer twice now with the same result. A sub-par beer, not alot to say about it.
