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.

Ungstrup (29168) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2006
A hazy light yellow beer with a dense white head. The aroma is sweet with a good hop profile including notes of citrus. The flavor is sweet malty with some hops - but too thin bodied and flavored for really being good.

omhper (19230) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2007
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Pale golden, average head. Rich hoppy nose with lots of lychee and pineapple. The mouthfeel is surprisingly soft and gentle and the body is light. It’s completely dominated by the aroatic hops, yet the bitternes is not really that powerful. A cottony hop aroma experience.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
Bottle at Brickskeller, Washington DC
Hazy blond color, big head. The aroma shows some vegetables (carrots...), light vanilla; strange. Normal Ale, with a correct balance of malt and hops; the best quality is its smoothness. Not bad, but quite simple.

TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2006
Bottled. Pale yellow-orange, some tiny yeast particles floating, small creamy white head. Bready, fruity aroma, not very strong. Quite standard APA - bready malty, a bit fruity. This is quite solid - good for session, but not much else.
