Very very hoppy pale nose and flavor very very bitter. NICE THOUGH???? I liked it but it did not seem to be a Sierra or any other malt balance pale...not that it claims to be nor do I think they want it to be. It could be its own style San Diego Pale??? Try it you’ll like it.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 4, 2006
Draught at Pizza Port Carlsbad
Pellucid amber color with no head or lacing. Nose is ripe and sweet with melon, oranges, kiwi that’s all an impersonation of the hop nose. The flavor is very citric like the ESB and comes across and delicious grapefruit juice. Earthy dry finish and a pleasant finish. This is nice. Perhaps a bit too dry-hopped comparted to the sweetness, but I like it as a pale ale. San Diego Pale Ale, ha.

Beuatiful new penny color and exceptionally clear for a small brewpub. Sweet, grapefruity, hoppy flavor and a big bitternes when tasted. Very plain on the malt. When your done drinking it your done no aftertastes with exception of light hop bitterness

Copper gold color low head very very hoppy aroma hoppy flavor with nice malty balance. I would say its closer to an IPA. Very very good beer. Perfect for San Diego

(Draft: Pizza Port in Carlsbad, CA) Small, off-white head, perhaps a quarter-inch tall, is creamy with an uneven top. Amber body is somewhat hazy. Big, citrus and grapefruit aroma initially, but within a few minutes, it has dissipated, leaving a tea-like nose for the duration of the session. Likewise, with the first few sips, there is a lightly sweet, grapefruity, hoppy flavor initially with a moderate bitterness in the finish that sits on the palate long after all other flavors have faded. However, once the beer sits awhile, the hops has an unsweatened tea flavor and bitterness. The malt is always just a base, never really producing more than a background flavor. Medium bodied, dry, clean and crisp on the palate, solid carbonation. The head settles to a ring, leaving random patterns of lace on the top half of the glass. If this beer were a bit sweeter to offset the bitter tea, I’d like it more. But as it is, this is only mildly enjoyable for my taste.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2006 On tap@Port Solana: Chill haze golden amber color with a small (bar pour) white head. Aroma is sweet with citrus. Flavor is lightly sweet malt with a little grapefruit bitterness and a light dry citrus finish. Medium body with light carbonation. Goes well with Pizza Lahaina.

I actually had a version of this called Ron's Pale Ale, brewed in memory of Ron Fries. The only difference is the version I had was made with cascade hops only. It pours with a deep golden body topped by a thick, white head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is sweet, hoppy and grapefruity, but without much else. The flavor is sweet and hoppy with a slight grapefruit note and a very lite hint of pine. The finish is bitter and hoppy. Light to medium bodied and slightly dry.

Deep amber and definitely not filteresd. Lots of cascades but the flavor is one-dimensional. More dry-hopping would add a nice balance to the bitterness.
