COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Reid (2317) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Served in the 12 oz brown shortneck. It is a light orange /dark yellow ale in appearance, its quite hazy and there is no head to speak of. The aroma is very citrusy..though not in the usual "pale " way..this reminds me of a hefe for some reason. The taste though is unmistakable..classic American pale ale , loads of hops and a nice enough malt backbone.Good bitter aftertaste. Pretty nice feel on the tongue for a pale..its quite smooth and easy to go down. A good drinkable beer though has some odd characteristics.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Bottle poured a nice golden color, looked good but not much of a head. aroma was fruity creamy and just a little hoppy. Very good taste with a creamy mouth feel and very easy drinking.

rudolf (2353) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2004
Bananna? Huh? Fruity nose with some toasted malts. And bananna. The toasted malts continue into the flavor. A bit watery with that bananna thing going on. Odd - not what I expected

obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 15, 2004
Pale yellow with white thick foamy head. Apricot, peach, sweet, with some hops on the nose. Light prickle, mild sweetness, with some light hops on the finish. Not bad at all.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Sparkling clear, light yellow ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Thin, stratus lacework. The nose is of lemon, grapefruit and white pepper. The flavor is well-balanced and citrusy with notes of lemon, butterscotch, grapefruit and white pepper. Although a low gravity beer, it is medium-bodied with an oily/silky mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Quick, clean finish.

hershiser2 (2047) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Goldenish amber in color, decent head. Smells wonderfully fruitful and florally. taste going in is nice, sweet and fresh, but finishes with a really funky tangy funk, which makes this beer not quite as good. After the first voyage down the pipes, however, the beer isn’t bad... but that first swallow tastes grungy.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Hoppy aroma, thin yellow appearance with a nice white head, fruity flavor, citrus & hops define the flavor, thin palate, but delicious.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Golden colour with a large head. Aroma is sweet, floral and buttery. The flavour opens lightly sweet with floral hops and finishes slightly bitter. Just a darn good drinkable beer.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2004
Bottle. Drinkable, but uninteresting, cascadey, with a relatively dry finish, lemon, lychee flavours, not much else.

Starts off with nice hoppy, fruity aroma. Has restrained mild flavor. Some citrus/grapefruity notes. Pretty average offering. Not bad.
