This has a strongly hopped aroma that is harldy captured in the flavor - although every ounce of yeast in the nose came through just fine, along with a whopping honey malt flavor. This is a wonderfully complex pale, rather interesting contrast to all of the NW pales around here.

Nice amber color with beige head. Light but rich in flavor. Aroma is unremarkable but the flavor is smooth and appealing with a slight touch of honey. Very satisfying drink.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2003 Beautiful amber pale ale color. Smells malty with a delicious Engish hop presence. Incredibly smooth drinking, well balanced ale. Kind of like a lighter version of their ESB(still their best bitter). Would be an excellent session brew. Wish I could find it in a six pack. Buying single pints gets ridiculous. If iI could drink it from the cask, I would drain that mutha.(Please save my stool, I'll be back.)

Dark golden/amber big frothy head good lacing on glass. Hoppy w some citrus mostly hops tho. Bitter with hops but a strange kind of (cherry?) maybe taste? Kind of metalic. Overall, average but that strange taste just kept rubbing me wrong.

smells like toast. nice frothy head. very thin on the palate. tastes like toasted bread crumbs, malt, nutty hop flavors with a bit of a dry alcohol finish. tis ok. very smooth. i just wish the flavors were more pronounced and it was a bit less flat.

bottled: light bitter and slightly malty aroma. clear golden color with a short-lived fizzy head. first taste hits you with a strong bitterness but that quickly fades into an overall malty mildness. medium body, and pretty smooth. it's good, but i prefer their ESB.

The Bottle says Outstanding Pale Ale. You know what? Its pretty good. Smooth and tasty this is a very good beer. Style is Bitter? Bottle says Pale Ale. Tastes like a Pale Ale. Looks like a Pale Ale. I think this is in the wrong category. Nice head out of bottle some lacing. This is good stuff underrated in my opinion. Deep Amber color. What can I say? I think its great. Not particularly bitter either. Try one you'll see what I mean.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2003
Pours amber with small, disappating white head. Bready malt aroma. Nice malt flavor without too much sweetness. A balanced hop finish with a lingering aftertaste. Very good flavor. A little weak in the mouthfeel, but overall a great beer.

Amber in color, sparkling, nice beige head, some lace. Sweet, caramel-like malt, flowery nose. Medium body, bit sweet. Moderate bitter, caramel-like malt, bit dry, notes of peanuts. Bitter, dry, malty and long finish.

A nice example of the style. Very "bread-y" flavor, not much head. Milder flavor than I expected with malt flavor more evident than the hops, but over all a good session beer. I would drink again, although I've come to the conclusion that I prefer their ESB.
