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.

"lots of pleasing aroma and flavor from this beer. hoppy, but with a little more malt than i’m used to in a pale, which is nice. recommended...labeled paranoid pale ale. mid to high three once or twice and a straight 3 or less a couple other times...hmmm. "

Flaske: Orange klar med et stort skumhoved. Drak den også under dens alias, så to styks begge købt på bryggeriet. Let citrus humle og en god del crystalmalt i smagen. Forholdsvis kedelig.

Enjoyed as Mammoth Yosemite Pale Ale. 12 oz bottle purchased as a single at the Lodgepole general store in Sequoia National Park. The pour is clear golden with a one inch slightly off white head. The aroma is cereal grain malt along with a faint floral, perhaps a bit of orange citrus. The taste is the cereal grain up front, moving towards lightly bitter floral, a bit of orange (though more orange rind than citrus) and a hint of pine. The palate is medium bodied, decent carbonation and mineral bitter in the finish. The bottle wasn’t dated, though I would guess this had a bit of age on it. Regardless, decent enough.

Bottle. A copper color with a white head. An earthy citrus aroma with a malty flavor and reasonable hop profile. A smooth pale ale.

Deep gold with long lingering frothy head. Aroma smells like a brewery...musty cereal grains. Taste is a nice combination of malt and hops. Reminds me of MaltOMeal with fresh hops. Love this pale ale. Helps that I'm drinking it at Mammoth Mountain McCoy chalet on a beautiful spring day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Backlog purge. Bottle at the Ahwahnee in Yosemite under an alias label. Dusty crystal malts and mild sweeter citrus accents.

12 fl oz bottle: badged as ’Yosemite Pale Ale’. Poured twice at home into a stemmed ’Yuengling’ glass on 26 Aug 2013. A present from my daughter and son-in-law after a holiday in said park. Looked fine, a good deep golden body with a full off-white head on both pours. Hops to the fore in the nose and taste, with a malty undertone. I really liked this beer, good solid balance and plenty of flavour from start to finish. Liked the alcohol level, suited the body depth and flavour.
