4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pale ale that takes its name from the brewery’s first beer, Portland Pale employs oil distilled from Brewer’s Gold hops to create an intensely-layered hoppy ale. The oil gives flavor, not bitterness.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Had this beer on 6/14/1999. Color is a bright crystal clear gold with good carbonation and a thin head. Aroma is a sweet malt scent that reminds me of apple juice, there is no hop aroma. Taste is lightly sweet and boring. Starting with a light body it goes down a bit crisp with a very mild malt flavor. The finish is a very light malt flavor with a very mild bitterness. As a Pale its just not good.

Poured from a bottle picked up at a local bar. Don’t know if the beer had been sitting for a while and was skunk, but the taste was pretty bad. Maybe will give it a try again one day, but not anytime soon.
