brokensail (9940) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Pours an orange color with a white head. Nose is citrusy, mostly orange, with some floral, grass, and marijuana aroma. A bit of bready malt sweetness, too. There is a sweet malt character to it, mostly bread and toast. Floral and citrusy hops without the same weed note that was there on the nose. Only a light bitterness on the finish.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2010
A Sim rate (tap at 4:20): Sweet, hoppy aroma of peach, citric fruit & woody goodness. Appearance is a reddish amber with a great head that just lasts. Flavour is delicate and refreshing. Citric again, with a hoppiness that kicks your ass in its bitter finish. Sharp but delicate all at once. Good beer.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2009
On tap. Almost clear amber golden with a creamy off-white head leaving a broad curtain of lacework. Fresh aroma of pine and peach. Medium body with sweetish caramel and fruit, before the aroma hops leave a massive bitterness. Delicious. 080709

yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2009
From tap at the brewpub in Solana Beach. Pours clear and golden orange with a small, creamy and dense white head. Hoppy and fruity aroma. Flavour is crisp apple and grapefruity. Light malt base. Dry and bitter flavoured finish. Nice and smooth.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2009
Draft at Solana Beach. A hazy dark golden beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma is lovely hoppy - citrusy - grapefruit, lime peel as well as malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of hops lending it lovely notes of grapefruit and grass, leading to a very bitter finish. Nice.

Cask @ Real ale, listed as Mike’s Pale ale, and it tasted like an IPA. Pours orange with a 1 finger tan head. Nsoe is huge and hoppy. Taste is sweet and hoppy with lots of resin.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 8, 2008
On-tap at PPSB. Board said MIke’s Pale Ale RIP. ABV 6.3%. Pours amber with a thin, sticky white head, spider web lace. Smells crisp hoppy with a nice malt backbone. Tastes hoppy bitter with nice caramelly sweet undertones and a little malt flavor in the background. Medium body, nice carbonation.

ClarkVV (3863) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Draught samples at ABF on 6/16/07
Very soft, lightly hazed pale-lemon colored beer with gold tints and a large, white head that is retained well and laces strongly.
Very crisp and dry are the hops, focusing on citrus mainly, but not your typical, boring candied orange and grapefruit cascade medley. Rather, it has bits of juicy tangerine aroma, with a very strong lemon zest note. Almost reminded me of concentrated lemon juice. Probably some amarillo in it, mixing with the cascade or whatever C-hop they used. It’s done well, and the dryness dosent have to fight through much sweetness, nor any medium malts. A true San Diego Pale Ale in every sense. Bitterness brings some zip to the finish as well, and there were no flaws/alcohol detected. Medium-high strength of aroma.
Soft pale malts are dextrinous and give a medium body, while bitter, lemon and grapefruit rind hoppiness slowly spreads out on the palate. A strong juiciness is present, giving more flavor than bitterness, eventually, as well as plentiful lemon-lime suggestions and typical, though not overdone, orange. Nothing heavily resinous here, nor was it overdone in bitterness. Not overly complex in malt, with mostly pale malt sugars providing light honey-vanilla and a bit of cake-icing-like sweetness. Quite dry overall, and very drinkable, with ample carbonation that helps accentuate the more delicate citric qualities of the hops. No flaws.
