badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Clear, light golden color with a nice white head that retains well and does manage to leave some lacing. I get some citrus, lemon, a touch of grapefruit, and just a hint of pine. The aroma also has a little bit of bread and biscuit notes. Taste contains some biscuit and caramel, followed quickly by citrus-y hops. Mouthfeel is a little less than medium with medium levels of carbonation followed by a dry finish. This one didn’t finish up as well as I would have liked, but it is pretty nice beer here. I’d probably get this from time to time if it were available to me.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Courtesy fordest. Mostly clear dark orange with a moderate soapy white head. Mild aroma, light floral hop aroma with some supporting malt tones. Nice thick palate for a pale. Clean tasting, with a biscuity malt middle and a finish that is lightly hoppy. Very refreshing and drinakble. Wish I could session this.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2007
12 oz bottle, via STEPHENDR. Pours a hazy dark yellow gold with a few small floaties under a minimal fizzy white head that vanished quickly. Aroma is quite light, some floral hoppiness and some doughy malt mostly. Lighter notes of tangerine and peach. Very lightly hoppy flavor with minimal bitterness and some doughy bready malt. Mouthfeel is fairly thin and watery with light soft carbonation. This one was pretty much a loser. Not alot to hang your hat on here, even for an APA there wasn’t much flavor.

chadje (177) - California, USA - APR 23, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2007 A pretty good pale ale. Not as good as their regular ale. Pours a nice light amber color, smells sweet, hoppy, like most pale ales. Nothing distinguished about it, but a good pale ale.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 8, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours clear, deep golden with a white, lacing head. Very fresh and fruity hop aroma. Fairly light in body with a weak malt base, but the aroma hops are incredibly fresh and fruity with accents of peaches and exotic fruits. The finish is dry but not really bitter. 290307

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 29, 2007
From a 12oz Bottle. Pours a very transparent color of straw with some subtle clover honey tones and a healthy serving of foamy white head. Clean, refreshing aromas of lemon zest with just a hint of pink grapefruit sweetness. Some very subtle notes of light toffee malts linger beneath the hoppy bouquet. Light bodied, crisply carbonated refreshing mouthfeel. Lots of hop flavor without a lot of bitterness makes this an easy drinking herbal treat. A touch of pithy grapefruit and orange zest compose most of the hop character. Finishes with a pleasant balance of toasted cereal and floral hops.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Lemon grass aroma sits atop a light golden ale with fluffy, thick head and tons of suspended floaties. Crisp and light citrus flavor with tons of columbus hops at play. Very clean and lightly sweet. Not a bad pale at all.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Bottle: Gold, nice head and great lacing. Nose of full on citrusy hops, very San Diegan. Grassy, grapefruity. Nice maltiness and intense hoppy notes. The flavor is balanced, dry-hopped, so not too bitter. Finishes clean, light, drinkable.

fordest (1973) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - OCT 1, 2006
12 oz bottle. Golden amber with a great head that left good lacing. Lots of hoppy floral aromas. Flavor was hoppy too. Fruity and citrus. Very good pale ale.
