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...

Bottle. Wonderful fruity hop aroma. Crystal clear gold body with slowly rising bubbles and a thin, off white head. Not a bad pale but not digging the finish. Has a bit of a fresh hop aspect but not in the ideal way. I have a bit of a pet peeve about ales that are crystal clear. They really should have a haziest that shows the beer was brewed properly and not completely filtered. Not much lace. Overall an above average pale ale.

(bottle). A golden color with thin head. Distinct hop signature with very little lacing. Fairly untraditional for this style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

swillguzzler99 (135) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2012
12 punce bottle. Pours a brilliant copper with a hint of lingering head. Beautiful hops nose. Is mildly bitter that lingers a bit for aftertaste. Not too shabby.

arkurzynski (1693) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Pale amber with white head. Aroma of light, sweet malt and moderate grapefruit and pine. Flavor is sweet biscuit malt and pine bitterness with some citrus. Dry, bitter finish with residual pine. Very good hop play going on. Just another solid, easy-drinking Lagunitas beer.

Practically an IPA, full of citrus hops. A little floral too. Nice. Serving: Bottle

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2012
Heavy flavor from the American hop. Good citrus taste with fine bitterness. Tastes like an IPA.

Hammy78 (835) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2012
Bottle purchased at the Wegman’s in Niagara Falls New York. Pours a pure copper colour with a fair sized white head that leaves behind these tiers of lacing like rings. Smells fresh and almost caramel. Tastes sweet and a little bitter (which hits the back of the tongue). Nice underlining of maltiness.

60minuteman (993) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2012 Pours orange brown. A delightful aroma of malts and some light citrus. A really smooth taste of hops and some burnt malts. Super hoppy, lightly carbonated pale ale.

rjplumer (606) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Grapefruit and pine hop aroma. A clear mild amber color. Mild bitterness. Sweet grapefruit sourness. Refreshing but the sourness kind of lingers in the finish.
