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.

Cobra (1100) - - 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.

Flowery aroma to it, decent gold color. Flavor was good malt with a little spice and roast, finish was hoppy bitter.

boto (1891) - 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.

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2003
Smells like it would be bitter. Clear and golden yellow in color. Wheaty tasting and leaves your mouth feeling dry.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2003
Straw color, off-white head actually left some lacing. Flowery hops and malt in the aroma. Neutral flavor, slight sweetness in the finish. Fairly light bodied, high carbonation gives it a little bite on the tongue. Pretty much just a lawnmower beer.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2003
A light yellow color with a bubbly head. A strong hop and citrus aroma and much the same in the flavor. A little malty caramel as it warms. A bitter finish.

beerbumble (42) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 18, 2003
Kind of a filmy yellow color. Good smell. Great bitter pale ale taste. Small amount of head, but just enough carbonation.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2003
I had this recently at a local establishment. Not as cloudy as I usually expect a pale ale to be in appearance. A little heavy on the carbonation, light body all the way around. Bitter kind of like ginger, with a nice spicy finish.
