Slightly hazed amber body topped by a frothy off-wihte head. The aroma is hoppy and friuty. Very well balanced hops and malts in the falvor. Very quenching and quite good. Medium body with a fruity (peach) aftertaste.

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2004
Very nice, hoppy, easy drinking APA. Good flavor, not overly citrusy or yeasty or malty but it sure glides down the hatch well. Nice effort for my first Hale’s product

JPDIPSO (5381) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 2, 2004
Amber color with a smaller cream colored head. Light grapefruit and pine aromas mixed with light caramel. Flavors quite clean and blend well with the aromas. It would be nice if the hotel I’m at had the taps right. Ordered the Blonde first and was quite sure it was the Pale. Then asked for the Pale and then got the blonde. Would have gone into the bar and told then, but Washington State Law would not allow me in with the kids.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2004
Tap@Hales. Pretty thin for an APA, but not all that bad. Some cascadey type hops, lemony, lightly piney. No big faults, just a bit too light.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2004
Clear orange, thin white head. OK nose of citrus, caramel, and bread. Juicy citric hops are balanced nicely by the malt. Lighter side of medium bodied, pillow soft carbonation, smooth, semi-dry, fruity finish. Decent session ale.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2004
Floral notes with citrus. Typical of Cascade hops and its northwest cousins. Prefect malt balance clean flavor some may miss the yeasty flavors that many other pale ales have

kyzr (1316) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - NOV 28, 2003
Light amber color with off-white head. Hints of the mighty hop lay in the aroma. Flavors of citrus mixed with malt. Nice balace to the two. Finish is crisp.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Pours a clear amber with average head. Aroma is lightly floral with detectable hops. Flavor is sweet with more hops than usually for an APA. Finishes nicely. Nothing overly impressive in this one.

Amber pour with little head. Nice floral hop aroma, slightly sweet. Pleasant light flavors, some sweet, with a smooth bitter finish. Good Pale ale.
