UPDATED: FEB 13, 2005 Rerate-one of the origonal ratings on this site. pours a nice copper amber hue with a nice white head. Looks pretty dark for a pale, more like an english pale. carmely, piney, earthy hop aroam with hits of apple, pineapple and pear. smells fruity! metalic hops, earthy notes, and artificial and/or broken down malts dominate the flavors. This beer tastes old (best by dec 04, so its about 9 months old). i think this beer would be pretty decent if it were a fresh sample.

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.

Not a bad pale ale. Not as much flavor as I hoped for. The color and aroma of this one is average.

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

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

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.
