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...

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2011 Bottle. The pour was clear medium orange with a small (less than 1 finger) fizzy white head that did not stick around too long and had what I would call OK lacing. The aroma was of quite noticeable of citrus and pine hops right off, with a mild caramel malt and an earthy yeast undertone with mild notes of fruit and citrus towards the end. It tasted nice and hoppy with a strong note of citrus (grapefruit) right off the bat then became a tad malty with a note of fruit and a nice strong hoppy finish. The flavor lasted for quite a while after the swallow allowing the bitterness of the hops to settle in nicely on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was medium to full bodied and very smooth and a bit dry in texture with a medium carbonation. Overall a very satisfying Pale Ale that had a nice blending of fruit, malts and hops.

Tycker denna öl är bättre än många verkar tycka, speciellt med tanke på priset. Den har det jag tycker gör en bra öl: malt, humle, fruktighet, sötma, viss fräschör, schysst beska. Men det är ingen wow-öl utan snarare än riktigt bra öl man kan och gärna dricker flera av. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to pint. Looks good; a Transparent golden orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells of juicy and bitter hops with a moderately bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. A touch of grain on the tongue as well. Enjoyable, and supporting a great cause in Pints for Paws.
