It was alright, a bit more of a citrus taste then I like. But overall it had good flavor and a golden appearance

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2004 The quintisential everyday beer. Perhaps my favorite beer to drink at social gatherings. Quite an attractive color and an enjoyable pouring experience. The taste is interesting, very hoppy with a slightly citric flavor. Smooth and satisfying. The type of beer you're content with after having it.

Nice amber color,small to nearly no head at all.Aroma is malty,mildly sweet and very hoppy,mildly spicey with a grapefruit hint in it as well.Light malt in the flavor but the hop's are in the heavy range with a slight hint of grapefruit.This definately seems to have more of a character of an IPA then that of a pale ale the hops are quite strong and the most pronounced part of this brew.The finish is pretty much all hops with a strong hop bite at the end.A very nice brew IMO.

Wonderful citrus, including lemon, aroma with a slight hop aroma. Pours an amber brown, cloudy, nice head and lacing. Malt is low to non-existent, palate is thin up front. Has an interesting citrus flavour and a nice hop character. A solid beer, refreshing and very enjoyable on hot summer days.

I'm not sure if I really like this or not. I got it in a "Micro-Brew" gift pack that MGM had a sign above it stating "support your local brewers". So I went ahead and got the 8 pack gift pack.
This offering was included. At first I couldn't figure out what "that" flavor was. Then I decided it was something like grapefruit. The beer wasn't bad at all, though I don't think I'd search it out to buy it again. Anyway, it is different, but worth a try.

The bottle exploded with 32 oz of foam filling two pint glasses. After settling, a cloudy orange color with brown sediment resting on the bottom. Fruity aroma. Light fruit and herbal taste followed by a mild bitter taste. Not what I expected, reminded me of a fruit beer more than a pa.

That the bottle label calls it a "British pale ale" reflects either complete ignorance on the part of the brewery as to what a British pale tastes like or a fraudulent effort to give an American West Coast pale the more distinguished British moniker. More hops than a rabbit farm. The hazy copper color gives it an attractive start, but it's a one-dimensionally bitter experience after that.

Hazy gold with fruity perfumey aroma. Bright crisp hop flavor It has a refreshing bitterness, moderately sweet finish. has a bit of a hop juice character to it, but it is my kind of hop juice.

Excellent find at a Duluth dining establishment - íGrandmasí. Very hoppy and just enough Cascade hops to make it interesting but not overpowering like some ales out west can do. Too bad it is not available around the country

What can I say, I love this stuff. Donít know if you can get it in many places. The divide between tap and bottles is pretty
wide... Out of the tap, itís heavenly, the perfect beer to accomany dinner at Hacienda del Sol. Out of bottles itís still pretty good,
but has a pretty bitter aftertaste. I reccomend it, but Iím from Duluth, so perhaps
Iím biased. :)
