itfitz (10) - California, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Calling this American Pale Ale "average" does no justice to the wonderful amalgam of caramel maltiness, light and balanced bitterness, an inviting grassy-citrus hop aroma, and a nicely-carbonated feel. Karl Strauss’ Pintail Pale Ale just works -- it goes down smoothly, leaves a pleasant aftertaste, and is the perfect accompaniment to a nice summer day.

Rex_Remes (22) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - OCT 1, 2014
Nice nose and good looking pour. Good hoppiness, grapefruit, some fruity sweetness on the front. Not overly bitter. Crisp. Smooth on the palate. Extremely drinkable pale ale. Not over the top hoppiness or bitterness like IPAs, which allows a more well-rounded enjoyment experience. Would drink this again and again.

slowrunner77 (3867) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"Very solid pale ale, good doses of refreshing citrus with enough malt to balance, but not take over. Like the profile, and it’s quite a refreshing beer too."

Medium amber, citrus on he nose. Underwhelming taste and bitter palate. This beer is just "ok".

Muggus69 (1204) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2014
12fl Oz BB 01/2015 Golden body, slight haze, holds a firm white head. Good aroma with light caramel & grainy malts combining with spicy, wood hops with notes of stonefruit & citrus peel. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Offers plenty of resiny woody & citrusy hops on the body, bolstered by a solid dose of toasty cereally pale malt goodness. Finishes with a firm but clean bitterness, very refreshing. Nice APA, plenty to like.

Karol (642) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 27, 2014
Tapped at Karl Strauss at the Universal Studios in Los Angeles. Aroma was malty in the back and I sensed a lot of spices and some good hops. Golden to copper color. Taste was a quite good balance of malt and bitter hops with a malty and bitter finish. Refreshing. A tasty beer.

wvhoran (256) - Tasmania, - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle with Dad. Pours golden orange with a foamy off-white head, a good looking APA. Some nice peach and orange, floral notes in the nose but a lot of caramel malt. Taste is medium sweet, nice peach and citrus, but again a lot of caramel malt. Quite an old bottle will try it again fresh to get the full potential. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackHaddock (3797) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2014
On tap at the brew outlet on Columbia St, San Diego on 18th March 2014. Came a clear reddy amber/golden colour with a full head. Hops rule the brew here, citrus and floral in both the nose and taste. Uncomplicated and refreshing, suited the alcohol level: didn’t try to knock you over with hops and booze, just a pleasant brew.
