COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is not the original Pale Ale as brewed in far away 1993 in the back of the Old House of Richards Building in West Marin hamlet of Forest Knolls right next to little Lagunitas. It is way better. Back then the beer tasted like broccoli and kerosene and the carbonation ate right through and drained your stomach into your gut...

haggis03a3 (197) - Orinda, California, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Clear gold with big fluffy foam. Hoppy citrus/pine aroma. Very bitter, hoppy, some malt flavor. Kind of in balanced and more IPA-like than a pale ale.

Humlehode (551) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2016
UPDATED: APR 16, 2016 Pours clear pale golden. Very nice prominent citrus, berry and pine aroma. Light bodied, this is all about the hops, but still balanced. Finishes with an assertive bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden pour with a single finger head. Lots of bubbles. Aroma of grain...a very light aroma. Light mouth. Taste is bright with a bit of fruitiness. Nicely balanced and very easy drinking. Slight bitterness at the end. Lace present.

maekchu (3323) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle. Caramel nose, with citrus, tropical fruit -- somehow it seems to have some funk. Clear orange/amber color. Sweetish caramel, citurs, generous hopping, a bit spicy, some dark licorice-like notes, and good bittering in final. Thin-medium body. Tasty and well-balanced stuff.

AnG_BrgNor (410) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2015
Aroma of malts, caramalts and hops (citrus, pine). Taste is much of the same but a little bit to sweet for me. An average APA.

heyden (137) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 25, 2015
Started with this one on the morning of Christmas on a hot NZ summers day. Nicely fruity and aromatic. Looks lively and golden in the glass and has just enough bitterness to keep you on your toes. An awesome replacement for your morning coffee
