This looked and tasted like a hoppy nut brown ale. Some caramel in the malt along with sourness at the end. Hops were o.k., but became metallic.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 7, 2003
Strange, this doesn't appear to be a pale ale, closer in color to an amber, small head and little lacing, thin to medium-bodied. Fruity and sweet aroma (Berry, caramel, lemongrass), very nice. Mildly hoppy on the palate with some sweetness to balance it out, metallic finish however. Shouldn't be listed as an English Pale Ale (or for that matter an APA).

argo0 (11530) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 30, 2003
Hazy copper body topped by small beige head. Aroma is floral, moderately sweet, berry, light caramel. Taste is hoppy, fairly sweet, and slightly acidic, finishing floral bitter. Medium body.

Ernest (6217) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 12, 2003
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, caramel), moderately hoppy (resin, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough), with notes of apricot and toffee. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Promising aroma ruined by a metallic and unclean aftertaste.

jpfrog (130) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2003
Not much head, and amber in color. Darker than most pales. Malty bouquet. Good balance of malts and hops on palate.

boto (1850) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 20, 2003
Somewhat copper color. Not much head. A nice bitter taste, but no subtelty beneath it. A little thin for a pale ale. Nice, but nothing special.

WabashMan (1012) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2003
Nice color, but a fairly thin head on this one. Aroma is pretty nice and slightly hoppy. Flavor is also nice, but doesn't last too long in the mouth and is a little watery for a pale. An alright beer, but nothing great.

climber10 (3) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2003 does not count
Great ale, strong and amber. Very well hopped but no bite. Just what I like in a beer. Perfect with pizza

Copper in color pours in with a nice head. Good solid pale ale with hoppy flavor. but yet too malty for my taste

Malty nose, great pour, nice copper color. Citric properties in the palate with definite traces of Cascade hops in the finish.
