Ernest (6215) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, grapefruit, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Very straightforward and basic. A bit too sweet.

Picked up a bottle of this at the bottle shop today in my, I want to buy stuff I haven’t tried, trip. Dark apricot color, tastes good. Has a nice bit little bit of hoppiness that gets caught up into the malty flavor. A bit thicker than I expected. It’s a real pale ale boys and girls. Something to sit and enjoy, not to blast down cause ’damn it’s hot outside’. I am pleased with this beer, no off flavors or bitter astringency. Nice almost fall afternoon beer for me, glad I finally picked it up.

Very drinkable. For fans of Pale Ale - I would think this would be quite excellent. Not overly hopped like most Pales are these days.

bgburdman9 (857) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2007
Poured a gold color with a very small white head. Aroma was of light hops and a medicinal astringency. Flavor was lightly bitter and nose had astringency to it. Not very good at all.

This draft brew from the brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a transparent softly carbonated golden brown colored body and a fair lacing. The nice aroma was hoppy and malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt hops and mild caramel. Delicious and one with a fair amount of caramel malts that I would certainly buy again.

hayduke (3365) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 18, 2007
From a 12 oz bottle that came from a six pack selling for $7.29 at Market of Choice in Ashland Oregon this poured a clear amber with nice medium white head and good lacing. Nose of citrus hops. Good clean mouthfeel. Flavor was of malts and hops in good proportion and balance. A very nice pale ale.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear, amber color with a medium white head. Good lacing. Pleasant hoppy aroma, maybe centennial hops. Nice mouthfeel. Flavor well-balanced with hops, malt, and a citrusy kick to it. Pretty good pale ale.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2007
Bottle: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma, citrus, caramel, some vegetal notes. Flavor, thin pale malts, some citrus, a strange astringency, some floral notes. But it just seemed thin on the body.
