The body is pale orange with tints of red in certain light. The head is slighly off-white, thick with medium bubbles which holds its ground. Aroma of heavy sweet malts and citrus pine. It also has a slighty earthy character to it. The flavor is mostly hops with a slight citrus flavor and and earthy malts. The body has a perfect consistancy for this beer: not watery, but for the amount of flavor that comes through, it allows it to stick to your tongue.

On another note, Great Divides ESB and amber have very similar characteristics to the pale ale. I canít put my finger on it, but somehow they are almost the same beer with slightly different malt and hops levels.Divides ESB and amber have very similar characteristics to the pale ale.

Really well crafted beer, but with very malty overtones true to the English model. I enjoyed it, but the malt flavor didn't hit my sweet spot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this just once. Smelled of frsh hops and a slight bit of lemon. Tastes pretty ordinary, but still a solid beer.

Pours a hazy gold. Not a lot on the nose that I could smell. Tastes good...a fair amount of yeast flavor. It doesnít taste like any pale that Iíve had before. This is a fine beer...not very exciting though.

balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - JAN 27, 2004
pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head that quickly diminishes...smells of malt and citrus. light body with less bitterness than expected and pretty weak flavors of malty sweetness, even a bit metallic taste. dry finish...overall not a great beer.

WhiteSoxFan (152) - USA - MAY 5, 2006
12 oz. bottle. I was surpised to see this listed as an English pale ale. I thought it was an APA for sure. Pours super clear copper with 1 cm. white head. Falls to a cover of substantial foam that slowly disappears as you enjoy the beer. little lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty with a little bit of citrusy hops. Carmelly malts. Flavor is very nicely balanced. Initial impression says this is one of the best Pale Ales Iíve had. Slightly bitter up front. Solid amt. of good malts in the middle. Not really carmelly, but sort of - crystal malts maybe? Not real sweet. Then some piney like hop flavors and a nice, sharp, but not too dry finish. Palate is perfect for a pale ale. Medium, but a good amt. of carbonation and bitterness to lighten it up a bit. Overall a top notch pale ale. Super well balanced, solid malts, not overly hoppy or bitter, but enough so to make is a pale ale. Easily drinkable. Iíve had many before and I will have many more.

ryanknock (150) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 14, 2009
This is a malt forward, more English style pale with an assertive hop presence. A very pine like resin flavor seems to dominate through the aroma, but biscuit, caramel and slight toffee flavors fight through upon tasting. Sight fruity, plum like esters finish complement throughout. Clean, creamy finish with light citrus hops.

Dark brassy color with a standard pale ale fragrance. Hoppy yet sweet at the same time. Clean finish with little aftertaste. Not bad at all.
