KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours a vivid and lush amber with a nice off-white head. Aroma is plastic-like with hints of fruit and roasted nut. Slight whispers of ripened grapefruit and close-to-expiration orange. Overall it reminds me of the smell of the ultra-70s plastic placemats my parents had when I was a kid. Flavor is a striking blend of nut and cinammon, with a hint of mild coffee in the finish. Average and lively mouthfeel. Overall, not too shabby. Might be tempted to ’see’ this one again.

daknole (9401) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Bottle from ericandersnavy. Amber pour wtih a gushing white head. Aroma is full of caramel malt. Some hops are noticeable as well. Flavor is hidden under too damn many bubbles. some notes of caramel and hops are present.

Cavie (3822) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 Very attractive ruby pour with a healthy head. Carmel and nuts on the nose. Dry over the palatte with hints of roasted nuts. 3.0
RE-RATE 9/1/10 Tap at Rock Bottom. I finally have my own Blind Salamander glass! Fairly clear dark orange color with a large white head. Pleasant aroma of sweet hops, berry fruit and easy grain. Flavor is dry grain with a slight touch of sweet fruit and a bitter lingering finish. Slightly better than remembered, and with a cool glass.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Slightly darker than pale gold on the pour with a two-finger tall white head. Lots of carbonation streaming upward. Very little lacing. The aroma is malt, light sweetness and thin floral and earthy hoppiness. The flavor is caramel malt with light hops. The mouthfeel is standard, almost uneventful.

12oz bottle via trade with blutt59. Pours a nice copper color with a small off white head. Nice light nose of Golding hops and toasted malts. A very good example of the English Pale Ale.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Amber colored with a thick tan head. Interesting aroma with notes of caramel and chocolate sitting above some basic hops. The flavor has some caramel and a load of earthy hops. Not your everyday pale.
