UPDATED: AUG 21, 2008 From a 12 ounce brown bottle. Poured into a 12 ounce clear glass tumbler. Enormous white head atop an orange-amber beer. Big aroma of hops and citrus. Very slightly bitter finish. Never did get the head less than about 3 inches. Dimpled cloud-like head. Truly a sessionable APA. Will be trying the on-tap version when I can. Kudos to Golden Valley Brewery for the label design...Very distinctive and classy. Good session APA.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 15, 2005
On tap at the brewery. Pours a very clear amber/orange with a small white head. Aroma had some nice floral citrus hops to it, kinda smells like citrus candy. Nice hoppy pale with a very smooth texture with a nice medium bitterness in the aftertaste.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Amber color, light white head, very sticky & creamy, nice. Floral hop notes, very sweet with a caramel & lilac nose. The flavor is herbal with some fresh hop notes (maybe dry hopped?). Finishes with some alcohol & musty dry hops. Decent fresh pale but again ends very weak.

Decent pale ale that strikes a nice balance between the citrus hops and caramel malt. Easy drinking session beer.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 28, 2008
On tap at GVB--Ultra light amber, mostly golden body with no head. Creamy, caramel maltiness with mildly floral hops. Very astringent and crisp cereal finish. Nice.

On tap in Beaverton. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light caramel nose with some oranges. The flavor is clean, fairly dry, some low bitterness in the finish, oranges and some caramel and crystal malt.

Ungstrup (29604) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. A golden beer with a slight haze under a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with grassy notes of hops. The flavor is sweet grassy combined with notes of malt and a light touch of spicy hops, leading to a dry bitter finish.
