mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Poured a nice amber/ruby color with an off white head that starts big then resides to average. The nose was bready, malty and piney with a hint of orange zest. The taste was sweet caramel, roasted malt, rye and cherry with citrusy hop esters at the finish. Very good. Tasty as hell.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2008 Not bad for a pale ale. Light aroma with hoppy taste. Consider it above average. Enjoyed it on a summer day.

bhensonb (11139) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 6, 2006
Deep redish amber color; little head. Aroma is mildly hoppy, a bit citrusy, and a hint of malt. Flavor is primarily malt, with some matching bitterness. Fruit is more grapefruit than other. More like a hoppy amber than a standard American pale. Good carbonation. Swishing makes it chewy/creamy. The finish is grapefruit bitter. Took a while to get there. Very drinkable.

fiulijn (14790) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2006
Hazy amber color. Nice fruity aroma: mango and peach. The body is not very strong, anyway it’s quite malty, and the bitterness is pleasant, the hop partially fruity and aromatic. Easy but enjoyable.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 19, 2006
On tap at Past Perfect, a new cool restaurant in downtown Nashville. Nice citrus hop aroma. Pours a hazy amber, with a faint head. Very nice bitter grapefruity hop profile, and pleasantly aggressive for this style. offset by a toffee like maltiness. Crisp, refreshing and bitter finish. I am not a huge fan of Pyramid, but this one was decent
