COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light-bodied, aromatic, Irish-style specialty ale. Double-hopped with PAcific Northwest Cascade hops for the flavor and smoothness of a traditional ale without bitterness of heaviness.

At first, the olfactory is a little acrid on the twist off but that clears to a nice sweet beery smell once poured. Color is just a tad more orange than the ubiquitous pale yellow beer. A little bite on the first taste bud impact but it mellows as the session goes on. Finish is rather gentle, almost like a lager. Not bad. Perhaps even sessionable with it’s lower alky level. I usually don’t care much for APA, but this is not offensive to say the least. Big thanks goes out to riversideAK for a chance to rate this not so local brew!

HoppyGuy (111) - Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a thin white head. Light hoppy aroma; a bit skunky. Weak and thin taste with very little character. Pretty boring.

littlecarp (135) - Redding, California, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Citrus flavor with slight chemical aroma. Lively on the tongue. Finish is grainy malt with some tinny notes.

scooterbub (871) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JUN 26, 2008
Bottle. Pours a golden-yellow with a decent white head that clings to the glass. The aroma and taste is mostly of malts and hops. Has a slightly dry finish. Aside from being an inexpensive beer, it is rather easy to drink, crisp, smooth and is fairly refreshing. I donít mind buying this every now and then.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Pretty much a substandard example of the style. This lacks character on every level. Very ligth floral nose, with a somewhat grainy cereal maltiness, but the hops are pretty much an afterthought and noexistent.

BuckeyeBoy (2874) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Bottle Pours out a clear gold topped with a foam white head. Aroma of grain and light malt. Tast pretty much the same. A touch of hops at the end. Not much of a Pale to me.

heemer77 (5109) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Green bottle, so it has some skunk. Airing it out didnít help. Pale yellow with a white head. Skunky with some grainy cereal. The taste is light corn and grass. There is just a hint of hops. Very light and no where near an APA, more like a light golden, nearly a Kolsch.

douglas88 (6333) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Can. Pours a light fizzy golden with a thin white head. The aroma is a strong sweet grain and corn. The taste is pretty simple; some sweet corn and a bunch of malt. Some honey perhaps and bit of stale bready flavors. Not horrible, just like a macro lager, but smoother and with better ingredients.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - APR 27, 2008
This really doesnít taste at all like a pale ale to me but more like a German or Dutch lager. But at $7.99 for a 12-pack I really canít find anything to complain about. Itís a light, slightly sweet brew with little or no skunkiness to report. I would have again for the price. P.S. Note to Full Sail: Letís cut out the bullshit on the box about how painstaking your brewing process is and how little regard there is for time and cost according to your philosophy. Nobodyís buying this fluff. In fact now youríe borderline insulting my intelligence.
