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 (19347) - 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

this pyramid stuff is everywhere in seatle. well, it could be worse. this is your average pale, some nice cascades bud in your face and the filiform get use to it pretty quick making it more subtle. some butterscotch undertone. good for cruising in the boat around the san juan islands.

Pours a dark brown, I was confused as to the color until I got on here and realized it was an english pale and not an american pale. Has a small white head and no lacing. Smells like a standard american pale but weaker in smell not very noticeable. Taste is similar a watered down american pale flavor with additional yeasty taste to it. Alright but nothing to write home about.
