The original Extra Pale Ale, this is the one that started it all. Our first brew was introduced in 1989 in Golden Gate style kegs. We have stayed true to our beginnings and still brew it the way we did back then. A bright golden hued ale with a medium body and a crisp spicy /floral hop character and very mild bitterness. This unfiltered ale has a pleasing mouth feel and remains our most popular brew. This beer goes with everything and every occasion.

andrewje41 (2964) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2016
12 oz bottle poured at a restaurant in North Cali near the source. Bright golden cloudy pour with a high carb, active fizz head. Very gentle hop aroma. A ton of dry, dusty straw grain throughout. A savior splash of juicy, yet bitter combined hops. Overall an easy drinking pale. Light, and medium refreshment. Not bad.
