BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2005
Light golden and clear with minimal head. Aroma was lightly malty with some citrus and a little herbs. Has some caramel sweetness but perfectly balanced with the hops. Refreshing, clean and crisp, and well built ale.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2005
Straw colour. Light citric ale with breezy pale malt notes. Fresh pale malt character - soft with mild citrus notes. Moderate bitterness. Great balance, very fresh-tasting, wonderfully refreshing. Not billed as such, but an excellent English-style golden ale.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Bottle: Golden, minor haze, mediocre frothy white head, decent lacing, moderate carbonation. † Minor hop, citrus, subtle graininess on the nose. † Fairly hop assertive start, mellows quickly. † Grainy aspect is barely noticeable on the tongue. † Very slight diacytl emerges at the finish, but not enough to detract. † Average body and mouthfeel. † Soft citrus like bitterness lingers. † Pretty good stuff this is! † Easily sessionable at 3.8%.

12/9/07 Aroma is hop forward with c-hops and a good sweet malt balance. Appearance is a slightly hazy light copper with almost no head. Flavor is quite sweet, with a honey-like malt blend balanced by a slightly earthy bittering for a great contrast. Mouthfeel is very smooth with a moderate carb bite and semi-sweet finish. Overall, nice balance and contrasts, easy drinking.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2011
My Bottom Line:
This very sessionable Pale Ale matches citrusy hops to crunchy pale malts for a pleasant quaff.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam lasts atop the hazy yellow.
-The svelte body increases drinkability.
-Cereals are as important in the finish as the fruity, spicy hops.
-Flavors are levelled throughout, of restrained intensity.
-I wish more breweries had nice low-gravity brews like this one.

On tap at Naked City.

22. Slightly hazy light copper with a thick, light, and fluffy white head. Awesome messy lace. Big piney, weed-like nose. A little bit of butterscotch there on the nose, too, which is a shame. Lightish, somehwat flat and watery body. Caramelly, butterscotchy mid-palate. Fairly neutral finish. Somehow fairly drinkable despite the indifference shown on brew day. Such a bummer about these light styles--any little oversight in temp control or anything else will show up, and not too many brewers really get wound up to do a great job on them.
