COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer has a golden colored body with a creamy white head. Its slightly sweet malt flavor makes up the base and offers a supporting role to the refreshing hop profile. Cascade hops provide a floral, citrus and almost fruity character to this well balanced easy drinking ale. Back by popular demand, ďPaleoozaĒ is an old favorite and an early original in our portfolio of great beers! 14į

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUL 26, 2005
(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with Eyedrinkale, thanks Mike!) While Iím not dancing like the three bears on the label, Iím fairly pleased with this pale ale. Itís pleasantly flavorful and nicely balanced, on one hand, mildly sweet with a decent grain/malt body, and on the other, moderately hoppy and bitter with abundant citrus flavor. Likewise, the balanced nose is pale malts and gentle hops, though it seems just a bit musty. Medium bodied and easy on the palate. Gold in color with a modest haze and a steady supply of carbonation bubbles rising slowly, and then topped by a small, but long lasting white head that leaves some patchy lacing on the glass, so the visuals are nice too. Overall, a pretty nice pale ale, but Iím thinking maybe the bears drank some Dragonís Milk first.

Corn grain aroma, light amber gold color, pretty simple sweet malty taste with a medium bitter finish. Somewhat light body for a pale ale. Just OK

Gmku (294) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 9, 2005
Very respectable APA with all the right stuff: Good proportion of hop bitterness and flavor to malt profile. Great flavor, wonderful body. I think Iíll keep her.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2005
Draft at New Holland. Medium dark amber color with average creamy off-white head. Medium aroma that was complex balance of malt and hops. Medium body. Same complex flavor with short finish.

1FastSTi (3336) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Poured to a thick, dense cream of wheat, rocky head with big popping bubbles. The body is an opaque caramel color with decent carbonation. The aroma is strong. Sweet, honey, floral, lemon, tangerine, nectar sugars, very nice fleshy pitted fruitiness and flowers. Sorta reminds me a little of DFH Midas Touch. The flavor is grass and floral hops, buttered bitterness, and some malts. The palate is a medium-full bodied beer with a lively carbonation and a short-lived bitter finish.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Pale, clear yellow in color with the small, oily head Iíve grown to expect from any beer that New Holland produces. Aroma is sweet nectar, floral hops and lemon poppyseed muffins. Flavor holds a good hop bitterness up front, along with some grassy and herbal butter elements. Gentle, subtle hops and some malts to back it up. High carbonation. Sweet, bitter finish. True to style.

hopscotch (9158) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2005
Bottle... Clear amber ale with a large, rocky, vanilla head. Terrific retention. Malty aroma with notes of yellow grapefruit, orange blossom honey and sweat. A bit sweet with notes of honey and lightly roasted malts up front. Tangy hops kick in on the backside for decent balance and mild bitterness. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with mild carbonation. Just a touch too thin. Tangy, lightly bitter finish. Seems to be more of an EPA than an APA, IMHO.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2005
this was a nicely done apa. The first taste was of hops, but the malt character grew sip after sip. Pretty well balanced with a good falvor. Well done

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 14, 2005
Bottle. Peach color with a dense, creamy white head. Light aroma of tangerine and hops. Taste is dry and fruity. Mellow hops take away any sweet fruitiness. Metalic aftertaste is the only thing that takes away from this being a very good summer brew.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JAN 7, 2005
Nose of citrus & spruce, also hints of burnt wheat, "cologne-ish". Pours a cloudy medium orange amber. The creamy white head is fully lasting with good lacing. The flavor starts moderately sweet with a low acidic warm middle. The finish is pretty sedate for the style. Soft to lively medium creamy body. The finish feels clean.
