brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2004
Amber red appearance with a quickly diminishing off-white head. Has a nutty taste in front with a hint of malt. The cascades appear in the back. Very drinkable and worth the 4.99 I paid for a sixer at Peace St. Market.

Padron4KM (531) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2004
Pours a deep copper color with a thin head that vanishes almost as soon as it forms. Carmel malt nose, with some nuttieness and faint hops. Flavor was kind of sweet, (apple juice), with a nice hop finish.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 1, 2004
Very competent ale. Up front nose of malt, benchmark copper coloring, full top-o-the-tongue cascade hop bitterness. My bottle tonight had a disappointing head that disappeared rapidly.

not really special. pours out a copper color with a thick white head. aroma is not bad, taste is ok. this isnt the best but by far not the worst either. my bottle said enjoy by 4/3/03 maybe that has something to do with it since you dont know how good of care the retail stores give to beers. goes down easy though.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 25, 2004
This is just a standard pale ale. Got some malt character, some hop character, but nothing special really going on here. Nothing bad about it, but nothing good either. Unimpressed.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Coppery color, off-white head. Sweet malty nose. Opens sweet and malty closes with a hoppy bite that stays around. A good drinking beer.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 17, 2004
A nice American hop nose, coming off a very pretty amber ale. The flavor is a good blend of malt and hop, but lacking in an ale-like yeast charecter. Still a good drinking beer, if somewhat uninspired.

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2004
Dark copper color with a very large head which clings to the glass for a long time. Nose is a musty, nutty Fall-like hop aroma. Pale and bland throughout with some old apple and pear flavor, and a bit of biting hops towards the end. Drinkable but not very flavorful.

Braudog (5574) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2003
Reddish amber with thin head, but higly active. Citric aroma. Fresh and dry fruity flavor. Gets blander as you go. This is an OK American pale, but nothing spectacular to make it stand out at all.

MMM...Beer (385) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 19, 2003
Pale Ale is not one of my favorite categories, but this one really impressed me. Tawny in color with hints of hops and a pinch of sweetness on the nose. Surpirsingly smooth with a dry, slightly frutiy taste with hints of vanilla.
