Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Pours a clear amber color with a small white head that dissipates rapidly leaving a thin film on top of the beer. It has a nice, cascade hop aroma of pine and citrus fruits. Medium body, smooth flavor with lots of hops but no strong bitterness. The malty sweetness pops up in the finish, just after the last dose of hop flavor. This is a rather decent American pale ale.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2003
Looks like an amber with the aroma of a pale. Extrememly dry and very hoppy with a very promising bitter aftertaste. Very rich and slightly bittersweet, this beer was everything I expected and more.

This is a really nice beer, nice golden color with a small head, citrus smell, very hoppy and flavorful.

Panzuriel (1427) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2003
Light honey color. Thin inconsequential head. Nice aroma. Decent flavor. Subdued hops. Good finish. Nice beer.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2003
Amber color, small head. Typical pine aroma but not as noticable as other west coast pales. Taste is also mild. Does not live up to its label art.

koatis (50) - Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Moderate amber colour, slight head. Starts a little watery (needs some more malt), but finishes with a nice, dry hoppiness. This is a decent American Pale, but not quite up there with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale or Victory HopDevil IPA. At a buck a beer, I would recommend giving it a try.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Medium/dark clear amber, good foam. An enjoyable pale ale with enough malt character to keep me interested, although the finish is just a bit thin.

jgb9348 (5092) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2003
Dark golden colour, amber perhaps. Nice head which stays for a long period of time. Very hoppy smell with hints of spice. Spicy hoppy taste too, but an unsatisfying amount of hops. A fairly good flavour for the intial two seconds, then fades away very quick.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2003
Spicy hops and a touch of malt in the aroma. I don't get the 'load of Cascade hops', its not very citrusy. Clear amber color, good head retention and lacing. Pleasant blend of spicy hops and malt in the flavor, not huge, but very enjoyable. A good pizza-and-wings kind of beer.

WabashMan (1018) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2003
A nice, spicy hopped American pale. Fairly dry flavor, despite low ABV. The beginning of the pint is fairly hoppy, but the strength fades near the end, and it all tastes a little watery. Nice, good, but not spectacular by any stretch of the imagination.
