JohnnyJ (4559) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Tap at PP Carlsbad. Light amber pour, small off-white head. Grassy citrus hops in the aroma, nice and fresh smelling, with some malt. Flavor has more malt profile, with bread and grain. Overall very light, easy to drink, but much like water. Meh.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. I have rated this beer before on tap, so these ratings will be merged soon, but I might as well re-rate it. Pours with a clear golden body and a small, white head. Aroma of citrus, pineapple, spicy and herbal. Taste is citrus, herbal and grassy. Light bubbles. Tastes quite fresh.
Earlier Rating: 7/25/2008 Total Score: 3.1
On tap at the Universal City Location. Pours with a small, white, long lasting head covering a clear yellow body. Aroma of honey and very mild hops (British hops of some sort). Dry, earthy taste, very malty. Dry mouthfeel.

My bottle of Pintail Pale Ale poured a rich golden amber color. Decent head. Had a really clean look. A pleasant aroma, hints of citrus (maybe grapefruit?) Taste: Wow - this ale delivers big on the citrus with the first sip. Pretty cool. I think my favorite thing about the Pintail is the malts I get mid-sip. Creates a nice balance with the vibrant hops. My bottle had a fairly ale-standard medium body - Nothing crazy. This is a smooth pale ale with an interesting hoppiness. Iíd totally recommend this. Canít wait for a hot San Diego day to enjoy a couple more.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2010 6 pack from BevMo Carmel Mtn. Ranch: Deep orange-amber color with a medium eggshell white head. Aroma is light sweet citrus. Flavor starts light sweet caramel followed by citrus and a light dry grapefruit -lemon finish. Medium body is tangy with moderate carbonation. One of Karl Straussís better brews. : )
