This is a great pale ale. A nice floral hop aroma mingles with the caramel malts. IMHO Pyramid turns out consistently great beers, and this is one of their finest. A great ’gateway’ beer to get your friends off of the Budmilloors crap. Very good balance, yet it lets every aspect of the beer shine.

Great ale, strong and amber. Very well hopped but no bite. Just what I like in a beer. Perfect with pizza

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.

Update: Attractive red-copper color with thick foamy head. Buttery and citric aroma. Smooth, some caramel and nut flavors. Tingly hoppiness and surprisingly well balanced. Really an american amber?

A dark caramel in color, fast fading foam, and full mouth taste. I really like this beer. Not a Pyramid fan in the fast, I'm finding that they put out a consistent and quality product. Others here have commented on a foul smell, but find it appealing. I'll buy again...not bad at all.

I really liked this beer -- very malty. It almost completely lacked any hoppy bitterness though. If you don’t like bitter, you’ll love this beer.

Really a good beer. It is somewhat dark brown and the taste stays with you. One of my favorite beers.
