Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of citrus fruits and a bit of caramel and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and citrusy hops, leading to a bitter finish combined with strong notes of lime and lemon peal. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of JohnC. Pours a pale amber with a slight haze and an off-white head. Aroma of caramel and overripe fruit. Medium body, caramel, peachy hops and a rather dry almost astringent hop finish. 221109

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2009
12oz bottle from Mammoth. Butter, butter and more butter. The malt in this one took a bad turn. Moderate bitter hops come through, but the butter ruined it.

IrishBoy (3888) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Bomber from GM Liquors. Nose has a fair amount of caramel with a little grassy and citrus hops. Lightly hazy copper with a medium cream head. Flavor is nuts, caramel, and light bitterness.

Plamadude30k (122) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 16, 2009
A fairly average American Pale Ale, though it seems a bit heavier on the light citrus, which is most appreciated. The aroma seemed unexpectedly weak, though, which was disappointing.

alexanderj (3339) - Branson, Missouri, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Bottle; poured a pretty clear, orange-amber color; a touch on the darker side. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus, and flowers. Nice, fresh and strong aroma for the style. Flavor did not quite meet the expectations created by the aroma, however it was still solid for the style. Overall it was better than most of the style.

iowaherkeye (2696) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - APR 23, 2009
12oz bottle, no date. Clean grapefruit, pine and floral hop nose with some faint caramel malts. Clear orange amber witha small creamy off-white head, fading to a thick ring and thin film before long. Flavor pulls back on the floral hops a bit, and the caramel malts are a little sweeter. Must be just a pretty good amount of aroma hops, because the bitterness in the dry finish is only around a 2-3. Creamy medium body with light carbonation. A solid, easy-drinking APA with no obvious flaws. I only bought a bottle, but could fly through quite a few of these on a lazy day--or night.

AmEricanbrew (6014) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Very clear amber with a fleeting head. Nice piney hop, grassy aromas. Smooth medium body. Good floral and pine hop flavors on a lightly sweet pale malt base. Another classic 80’s micro from these guys.

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2008
Clear deep golden with medium off white head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of grassy notes. Sweet malty flavour with hints of hops, toasted malt and caramel notes. Slightly bitter finish.

18-Jun-08 (12-oz bottle: Purchased 12-May-08 for $1.89 at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) This is a pretty basic American pale ale. It’s malty and lightly sweet with grainy, pale malt flavors and a mild huskiness toward the finish. Bitterness is mild and smooth, and the gentle hop flavors are piney and dusty with a hint of weediness. Medium in body and carbonation, but uninteresting on the palate. Medium-golden in color and somewhat hazy in appearance with a half inch of off-white head. Retention is average, the foamy layer fading to a thick ring while leaving some patchy lace on the glass. In general, this is a drinkable pale ale, but mild and somewhat boring because of the lack of crisp, focused hops.
