brokensail (12222) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Golden orange pour with a white head. Really herbal and vegetal aroma. Some floral and grassy hops, toast, and sweet bread. The flavor is grassy, bitter, herbal, and vegetal. Some floral hops, toast, bread, and caramel.

hopdog (9461) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2015
On tap at the Hillcrest Brew Pub. Poured a hazy yellow color with a small sized head. Another pale / golden that didn’t really taste any different than the other pale / golden I had right before this.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - JAN 24, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a translucent copper color with a small white head that has poor retention and no lacing. The aroma is mild with various grains and perhaps a bit of corn. The taste, like the aroma, is grains and corn with a bit of spicy hops. The palate is on the watery side and the carbonation is lively. Finishes short and forgettable. Overall: Weak brew.

SDalkoholic (2201) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle from Sprout’s: Created a thick fluffy topping of foam head while a golden liquid rested below. Aroma is mild with a smell of grainy barley malts but I am unable to pick up any scents of hops in this pale ale. Does smell like a beer I would want to drink after mowing the lawn though. The drink is much more pleasant than my nose led me to believe because of the soft undertones of semi-sweet malts while an earthy taste of hops brings flavors of bitterness. Has a solid body making this a decent pale ale style.

volaticus (2) - - OCT 6, 2013 does not count
I loved this pale ale which is actually red in color. It had a nice kick to it but still very smooth and light for a hot day.

ACHops (870) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2013
On tap @ the brewpub. Pours bright coppery orange with a thin head. Aroma is slightly nutty caramel malt. Taste is mild sweet caramel malt with a spicy earthy hops on the finish. Nice mild pale. Big bonus points: this comes with a real necklace at the brewpub. Impressive commitment to the meme!

MacBoost (1426) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy honey color. Aromas of grass, toffee. Very dirty mouthfeel, very Great Lakes like. Dirty malt. Lightly hopped. Mediocre. Thanks Todd, you sailor.

mjg74 (2643) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Draft at Baja Betty’s. Hazy golden in color. Somewhat bready in flavor. Decent hop bitterness. Some grapefruit peel in the finish. Not a great pale ale.

badlizard (5535) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 6, 2012
On tap at brewery. Clear golden with no head. Sweet bready fruity and malty aroma and taste with a sweet earthy finish.

crossovert (8500) - Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Watered-down golden ale. I love perle hops but they really butchered this one.
