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.

Hazy orange unfiltered. A good example of an APA though not in same league as Liberty or 3F alpha. Typical piney and citrusy character. Good session beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 22, 2003
filtered orange hazy color, little head and minimal lacing. small hop aroma with a background of malt. dry and acidic on the palate, respectable pale ale but somewhat dissapointing.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Has a floral, melon almost candy aroma quite interesting. Slightly sweet but medium-bodied. Clean zesty finish. Good example of a Pale Ale.

3fourths (8038) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2003
Light orange, served in a cold glass with no head. grrrr. Sweet syrup, white grape, and peach aroma. Mild hop presence, with a strange old-leather flavor. Not too much to distinguish, and I wish it lived up to it's aroma. Palate is slightly dry, but the finish is boring.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - JUN 25, 2003
love pale ales and liked this one. good fruity and hoppy smell. Spices, hops, and malt seem to work together. Good but not great.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - MAY 28, 2003
12 oz. Brown bottle. No freshness date. Damn twist off cap. Pours out a hazy, darker shade of yellow-orange. Fast fading head that left some lace on the side of the glass. Citrus aromas, lemony. Not much in the way of hops here, either in aroma or taste. Light, grainy taste, followed by that strange lemon taste also. Maybe this is a bad batch. It's not something I'd go out of my way to buy again, that's for sure.

kyzr (1152) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - APR 22, 2003
Flowery aroma to it, decent gold color. Flavor was good malt with a little spice and roast, finish was hoppy bitter.

boto (1854) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 11, 2003
Kind of fizzy and yellow. Has a bit more taste than most fizzy yellows, but it is mainly hops and nothing else. Not too bitter, however. No reason to come back here again.

Panzuriel (1310) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2003
Somewhat bitter aroma with a nice touch of hops. good mouthfeel with a nice finish. Nice flavor with some bitters.
