TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2004
Lovely citrus hop aroma. Lemon, grapefruit. Pours a golden brown, thick off-tan head. Good lacing. Hop aromas donít follow through in the flavour. Mid-range hops and less than I expected in the finish. Kind of a musty aftertaste. Body is slightly malty. Not a bad beer.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Faint hoppy, organic aroma. Nice light copper color. A crisp, mellow hop flavor. Malt is fair, balance is there for all accounts. Acidic flavor resides in the aftertaste, not too pleasing.

Crit (3534) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2004
Sparkling amber, lasting beige head. Light hop/malt nose. Malt flavor with very mild hopping, too much so for the style. I certainly donít detect all the hops either in nose or taste that everyone else seems to.

DarkElf (3038) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUL 3, 2004
(12-ounce bottle) Flavorful, malty, and mildly bitter with a corn flavor and an acidic, biting finish; The nose is mildly malty, but also a bit floral, and overall, not all that inviting; Medium bodied with a fairly carbonated mouthfeel; Amber color is pretty dark for a pale ale; Off-white head settles to a long-lasting thin layer and leaves a fair amount of lacing behind

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2004
Bottle@Spiesys. Aromatic hops in the nose, slight lychee type flavour. This was a little bit thin and sweet however, short finish.

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2004
Beer #4 at Spiesyís. Substantial yeasty hop aroma. Again, like the other Flying Dog beers we tried, the flavour falls away a bit, but isnít unpleasant. Sweetish, with not enough malt, or hop, presence to create major interest. A decent, if uninspiring, effort. Bottle.

SilkTork (5398) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2004
Bottle @ Spiesyís gaff. At least - a half decent beer! Fruity American Pale Ale aroma - lychee, Sierra Nevada, nice. The flavour is surprisingly muted and murky after the delights and promise of the aroma. Some dull hop bite. Sad.

jgentgesdo (681) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 24, 2004
Dry, Hoppy beer. I smell lemongrass, very crisp, short bitter aftertaste, hops and wheat taste, slightly oily mouthfeel. A good but unremarkable pale... I prefer Sierra Nevada.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2005 This is a nice "classic" Pale ale. A bit like the Sierra Nevada version because it contains a nice balance between the important ingredients. Ridiculous label and name. A bit thinner though. Nuts are present in the flavour.
