1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 4/20
It goes down smooth without any aftertaste. I put a lime wedge in mine. It is weak. I think the alcohol content is 4.61%. It is one of the cheapest beers at the liquor store here in the people’s republic of utah. Would I get it again...not likely or only if I was desperate and on a budget.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A thin, watery, golden-colored brew. I like the review just prior to mine indicating it smells like "paperclip and armpit". While I've never tasted a paperclip, armpit seems an appropriate description. Insulting to the American Pale Ale category and all it stands for.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pale, foamy, looks and smells like skunked Heineken. Hints of paperclip and armpit. This is the worst of the bunch, a true drain pour.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This has lots of charactaristics of an international lager. Light hops and pilsnery malts, not too great. Watery and metallic. Eh.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2004 Poured like your standard American beer. This has a malty aroma. They have balls calling this a "pale ale". This is Miller Lite! Vaguely citric, but intensely malty. Don't think there's a single hop in it. AKA Henry's Ale

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a very pale gold with a white foamy head that is disappearing quickly leaving a bit of lace. Musky malt aroma with small hops. Pretty much the same with the flavor but a bit more muted. A nice cleansing palate.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
bought in a green glass 12 oz bottle..with boar on label ( beer was not skunky despite colour of glass).
What can i say this beer is average..bland even but is drinkable.
Not Weinhards best beer but ok if all you have to choose is Bud or Coors i would go for this.
Its called a pale ale but looks abd tases like a pilsner/lager, also says "ireland style" on the label strange indeed :).
But all in all not an offensive brew..just average LOL.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Looks like piss, complete with the thin white head. Smells like a thin lager, subtle hints of banana,non existant finish, the more henry Weinhard's I try, the more respect I lose for them. Rock $ Roll McDonalds.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a lager not a pale ale.I used to drink this as a quality alternative to budweiser in the early 90's. I really enjoyed it then and I really enjoyed it today. Even though I have haven't had it in 10 years. I've been drinking alot of micro-brews. I've had alot of high quality
beers since then.Yet this one is still very quaffable. Moosehead and Heineken are very similar. Both lagers.

(bottle) I had a Henry Weinhard's Pale Ale. Since no other Pale Ale is listed under Henry Weinhard, I'm guessing this is the same. Anyways, this is a slight step up from the Budweisers of the world, but not by much. I'll give it a nice rating for aroma though.
