haukur (1305) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 3, 2011
a bit bland pale ale, a bit excemplary of the style. Heavy palate but lacking in taste. Nice summer beer but nothing to be jumping over the moon about

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2011
Reviewed from notes. On tap at the brewpub. Pours golden yellow with a bit of a white head that quickly recedes. Nose brings some floral hops and some slight citrus notes. The taste brings forward some more of the malt. A bit of pale malt with some light bitterness. Decent body with good carbonation and slightly bitter. Decent hop flavors but nothing that’s terribly complex or over the top in any particular direction. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-29-2010

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2011
This beer pours a clear copper-gold color with a thin bone white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops and sweet malt. Medium body with flavors of pine, earthy malt and muted hops. Touches of fruit too. The finish is hoppy with a short citrusy aftertaste. This bottle was possible slightly past its prime. Pretty average overall.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2011
On tap at Natty Greenes, Greensboro NC on 13 July 2006 as Natty’s Pale Ale (noted at 5.2%). Mid gold colour with a thin white head. A pleasant, clean, fresh APA with plenty of bitterness and citrus fruit. Quite assertive. Maybe a little short of malt backup but hit the spot quite nicely. Crisp and quaffable.
