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.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured a nice cloudy amber with a nice white head, bubbly. Not much aroma, fruits and hints of malts. Taste is quite light too, is sweet, fruity and not with a whole lot of hops. Medium body; It is quite drinkable not bad at all but it is perhaps a bit boring.

Itís a drinkable brew. Nothing special just good brewing. Faint hop and malt aroma followed by a nice malty sweetness in the taste. Finish is actually quite nice for a extra pale.

Six pack from AJs. Good but unexceptional pale ale. Hazy (itís unfiltered) orange/yellow, tastes slightly lemony. Not big hops, but not absent either. Not another Cascade pale ale, which is good.

This beer was really good for a pale ale it was smoothe and not to hoppy that usually leaves a bitter taste. I would recommend this beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jimthechap (1480) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 22, 2014
Hazy orange colour with good carbonation and minute suspended particles. A partial skim of white head. Fragrant mango, hibiscus and guava aromas with some gentle spiciness and orange zest - it smells good enough to drink (which is useful). Fluffy and citrus driven at first and then this is joined by sherbet and tangy bitterness. My heart sank a little when I saw that it was a golden ale because so often this is a euphemism for ale that might as well be lager - fizzy, tasteless and designed for quaffing. This is endearingly fluffy, like a favourite niece and has plenty of character, also like a favourite niece.

BOSSbrewer (1310) - Arkansas, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with one finger of head. Aroma is floral and slightly citrus. Flavor is floral smooth and slightly sweet medium to light bodied. This is a much nicer beer than I expected. Very drinkable.

Bottle. Slightly hazy orange pour with a small tight white head. Citrus and perfumy hops with a bit of pine. Nice little bite on the tongue. Pretty solid.
