This is a classic, American-Style pale ale that displays all of the complex bitterness and aroma from the hops of the Yakima Valley in Washington State. By using a top-fermenting ale yeas strain we bring out the floral and herbal flavor profiles. A clean, malty body is developed from the pale and light caramel malt. ABV 5.4% Bitterness 35 IBU. Contract brewed for Costco by the Gordon Biersch Brewing Company under the brewer name Hopfen Und Malz (for the west coast market) and since mid 2009 by Matt Brewing as "New Yorker Brewing Co." (for the east coast market).

Tmoney99 (13342) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Bottle from Costco - Cincy. Poured a clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is an just above average drinkable brew.

Dogbrick (11329) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Clear amber pour with a medium fluffy off-white head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Slippery sheets of lacing on the glass. Pale malt, citrus and mild hops in the nose. Light body with a lightly bitter citrusy hops character with bready malt in the background. The finish is short and lightly hoppy. Thoroughly average beer.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 2, 2012
355mL. Clear amber pour. Larger suddy, off-white head. Nose is heavy detergent. Taste is suddy, nutty, dense from residual sugar and specialty malt. Some decent floral and piney hoppiness comes through. Not so bad. Palate is mildly astringent and chemical laden.

meh, too much biscuit malt for me. for the price these are ok, but as they are not a whole lot less than better beers at costco, great price but not a great value.

DuffMan (9500) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle. Light amber pour, average off-white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with caramel. Toasty caramel malts with soft ripe-peach hop notes and a moderate bitterness that lingers. Marred by a hard mouthfeel and over-carbonation, but otherwise not bad for a low cost brew.

KyotoLefty (9127) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle from Kyoto Costco. Citrus hop nose, biscuity malts. Rther mild. Deep gold, close to amber, with a low head. Malty flavor, grass and citrus hops, slightly bready. Light and a bit thin. Ok, but not so special. Good for the price here. Simple but decent.

Bouteille @ OTH. Ouiap bon, rien a voir ici. J’ai goûté trois de leurs bières et aucunes ne laissent une bonne impression. Dorée, mousse blanche, arôme de grains et de brassin, qcq notes de malt et blé, fin caramel avec une touche de houblon. On s’ennuie à boire un tel désastre.

This clear golden beer poured with a nice white head and a faint caramel aroma. There is a crisp malt flavor and some bitterness at the finish.
