3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this beer in Hawaii a few years ago and ran into it recently at the Beerfest in Raleigh NC.
Poured from bottle - Lightly hazy copper in the glass with a thin ivory head. Nice aroma - solid malt with just a little hops and maybe caramel sweetness. Herbal hops in the mouth, hints of citrus.
This is a pretty tasty pale ale and a good summer drinker.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2008 Pours a nice crisp copper color with thin off-white head that lingers a while and leaves okay lacing. Nose is citrus hops, though not real pronounced, and the mouthfeel is slightly tingly. Taste is a nice citrus hop, that slowly evolves into sweet malt, and the finish is slightly bittersweet and smooth.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2015
2008 GBBF, Trade Day,. Bottle. American hops and a sweetish malt. Rather vague and ill defined. Nothing impressive, but drinkable. [2.6]
Jan, 2015 355ml dark bottle, filtered. £2.45 from Beers & Bottles, Southampton. Dark amber. Honey sweet. ow condition. Syrupy mouthfeel that vanishes into water quite quickly. Some hops add a balancing bitterness. Quite drinkable, but not impressive. [2.7]

Tap at the original Yard House. I think Pershing is dead on: average. While the color is darker than your standard pale ale, the aroma is undistinguished at the flavor is simply unimpressive. I detected more malt that hops, actually, and the whole brew seemed very settled as opposed to bright and sprightly as living in SoCal has accustomed me to.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice floral and citrus nose. Flavor had a nice light bitterness up front with a moderate roast quality to the sweet malty middle. Light herbal & citrusy hop flavor before the somewhat chewy finish. Moderate carbonation and a somewhat substantial body for the style

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I had this on tap at the Old Chicago in Silverthorn, Colorado. It had a nice straw-orange color with decent clarity and a good head. It seemed to have more body than the taste would have me believe. There wasn’t much malt flavor, it was almost all hops. The aroma fell short, it wasn’t as floral as I would have liked. The taste is almost all piney hops and bitterness.
