UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 A medium amber colored body with a thin off white head. The aroma is sweet oranges with some bananas and a light hint of pine. The taste is slight pine and oak with a little bit of grapefruit. The mouthfeel is thin with a dry refreshing character. Very nice pale ale.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - APR 15, 2005
Reddish brown with a good aroma of hops with a bit of sweet earthiness. Smooth with a good balance of floral hops and bready malts. Not too overpowering in any one category-like it couldnít decide which direction to take-"should I be more malty or hoppy-Iíll stay in the middle as not to offend anyone". Clean, smooth finish with a little astringency. Good overall.

07.03.03 12oz bottle. Another darkish amber beer from Pyramid and with similar aromas of bread and herbs, but this one is a bit more on the citrus, c-hop side of the spectrum. Nice hoppy flavor dominates a rather thin brew, sweet, floral. As uninspiring as they are, these northwest pale ales are delicious as a Wendyís Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger -- you can get it anywhere, and itís so tasty you do.

Wait a minute...is that actually live yeast in the bottle?...canít be. This smells pretty good actually, surprisingly malty with minimal hopping. Tastse like a mellow amber ale. Typical malt, although strong. Dark for a pale - a moderate amber color. Although this surprised me it really wasnít all too exciting, just unusual for the style and the brewery. Needs a bit more character.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber brown color with a small cola-like head. roma is malty and hoppy. Flavor is malty (syrup like) and mildly hoppy in aftertaste. Generally, a decent all around beer--much like its English counterparts.

bubbleflubber (2160) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2004
Pours hazy reddish-brown, with a medium head that dissipates quickly leaving nice lace. Spicy hop nose. Almost immediate caramel on the front, malt balanced nicely with hops. Cleanses the palate well, nothing too obtrusive. Nutty bitter finish that tends to linger (maybe even a shade too long), but definitely fills the mouth and is decently drinkable. Would recommend with pizza or other hearty Ameritalian cuisine. Compliments well with marinara.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2004
Crystal clear copper-coloured beer with a thin off-white head. Sweet caramel malt and citrusy grapefruity hops. The flavour is also sweet with a spicy character and a bitter finish. Well-balanced.
