I’ve had much better than this. Pyramid can certainly do better, expecially when compared to other Oregon Micro’s.

By far not the best pale that I have ever had, but worth a shot.

Floral, hoppy aroma. Dark orangey-copper color, somewhat cloudy. Adequate carbonation, average head. The distinctive fruity maltiness and slightly metallic-tasting hops definitely mark this as a British style Pale. Nice mouthfeel and hop aftertaste. Very British-tasting indeed.

Nutty malt flavours take the front seat here with a hop bitterness to the finish, but no real hop flavour. I prefer a more hop balanced APA.

Great dark red color and a decent creamy head. Flavor is full of hops with a medium hop aftertaste. Cool label, too. I love pyramids.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2001
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2003 Deep and murky amber. Malty, wet dough nose. Creamy and gentle up front, carbonation in the rear. Decent texture. Malt flavors have notes of cookie dough and crackers. Hops are herbal, finishing with a citric bitterness that carries into the aftertaste. Vanilla flavors and aromas rise here and there, then become more and more pronounced as you drink. Bitterness lingers on the tongue. While not that bad of a beer overall, the herbal hop flavors didn't seem to jive with the vanilla notes.
