Light amber in color. Head is small and disappears fast. Taste is more hoppy and not very complex. Light pale ale that is not bad but not great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy copper with an off-white head. Malty nose (caramel and chocolate malt). Very crisply carbonated up front; dryish and flavorful in the finish. Light beer with big, rounded malt flavors -- sweet, lightly toasted, toffee flavors. Earthy hops with a slight fruitiness. Good beer.

Penny copper color out of the bottle with quickly dissappearing white head. Apple fruity nose. Lightly fruity malts with apple and peach with a nice hop finish. A little watery, but very pleasant and I could keep this around as an everyday beer.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2007 Amber bodied with a pearl cap, this celebratory ale does not impress with its slight malt aroma. However, this is an easy to drink beer with a smooth malt flavor. A solid amber, albeit one that does not distinguish itself from the ruck.

Pours to a brownish orange body with no head. The aroma is something like tomato and cabbage soup. The flavor is a odd "spicy"/"earthy" hop. The palate is middle of the road.

Amber with beige head. Earthy malt nose. Light malt profile throughout. Smooth and clean, but bland, more of a transition beer

Could be the best English Pale Ale Iíve had yet. Very hoppy and full of refreshing light citrus flavors. Light bitter and sweet malts balanced it out almost perfectly.

On tap in Ashland, OR. An interesting copper/red/amber color with nice light brown head. Hops and malts dominate the aroma as well as the flavor. Very good balance wtih no bad tastes of any kind. Smooth on the palate. A very nice pale ale.
