Golden, with a hint of amber color, like watching the sunset from the famous Pismo Pier. Watch out for sharks, the Pismo Pale Ale has a bite to it. Those brave enough to enter the water will be rewarded.

Has a dark golden colour. Again quite a plain, watery taste. Not unpleasant, just lacking in flavour. This has a slightly warming malty finish.

Reddish with white head. Clear. Had this as part of a flight at Pismo Brewing in Pismo Beach. Juicy and citrus flavored. Not malty for a pale. I like it

Tap @ brewpub. Golden pour with a white head. Minimal bitterness snd no pine with off aromas. Taste is slightly bitter with odd, flat malt flavors. Clean mouthfeel. There’s a lot not working with this beer.

From bottle. Tasted fresh. Faint aromas of fresh hops. Palate is better. MILD fresh hop flavors of citrus, resinous herbs and florals. Mild malt presence. Good mouthfeel and smooth, creamy carbonation. MILD flavors of hop buds linger for a moment on the the palate. Tastes like a mild home brew (in a positive way). Overall, a decent, light micro-brew, no harsh complaints... Simple, mild, light, balanced, and refreshing... --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Orange pour with a small white head. Not a very good pale ale. Grass, chalk, and a bit of pine. Some vegetal notes, a little bit of earth, and a bready malt sweetness. The flavor is somewhat bitter and astringent with a strong chalk character. Some pine, earth, grass, and cooked vegetable flavors. Mild malt sweetness, water, and perhaps a touch of caramel.

Draught at the brewery. Hazy amber. Crystal malt, iced tea, and fruity aroma. Some grassy and bitter hops in the flavor but no hop aroma. finishes bitter. Odd overall and not very good.
