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...

(Bottle) Pours light hazy golden with an off-white head. The aroma holds citrus (mostly grapefruit) and pine up front with undertones of black currant, tart apricots/tart yellow fruit, spices, light bread, crackers and light honey. Quite subtle on the nose. The flavour is light sweet, medium to heavily bitter and light acidic with notes of citrus, pine, wood, resin, bitter herbs, grass, bread and crackers. The mouthfeel is clean and tiny astringent from the hops with light to medium carbonation. Lingering and aggressive, grapefruity and resinous finish. Light bodied.

stefannilssons (1543) - SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2012
Ölen inleder med en underbar arom, grape, citrus, blommigt. Smaken följer nästan helt upp aromen men den är lite för spretig. Beskan är både kraftig och ihängande men ölen är fortfarande lite för spretig.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2012 Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Typical fruity and citrusy character, a bit of sweetness. Medium bitterness. Very nice and easy drinking, but a bit high on the alcohol.

rarbring (1902) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2012
Aroma: Smelling fruity, peaches, grape-fruit, grass and some toffee.
Appearance: The beer is clear light amber, has an high off-white head that leaves good lacing and has some curtains.
Taste: Starting with sweet bread, toffee, then apricot and grape-fruit marmalade, then bitter grape-fruit peel.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, sticky and fizzy, medium low body and a coarse dry finish.
Overall: A very hop dominated american pale ale, i’d like to throw in an "indian" as well.
Note: Bottle 355 ml. Reviewed 2012-09-11.

12 ounce bottle. There’s a tart kick in the flavor that makes this pale ale stand out from others in the style. Unlike most of its kind, this beer wasn’t just light bodied and easy to drink. It was also had a satisfying flavor. It’s a bit citrus oriented and floral in aroma. I liked it a lot and would definitely pick it up if I were in a pinch to find a fun beer that appeals to the masses.

This crisp pale ale is quite simply the perfect beer to drink with a big bag of Cheetos!
