COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our lightest ales, this beer has a light malty flavor and dry hopped aroma. An american west coast original, the light flavor shows off our west coast hops.

Draught at the brewpub. This was easily the best beer they had on offer that day. Aroma of subtle hops and molasses, decent looking. Flavours of dry smooth hops, a tad sweet but well rounded nice malt as well. The medium body was the best thing about this, and the carbonation and finish were just right. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at brewpub. Mild lemon-citrus and resin nose. Caramel and floral citrus on the front taste, with a big bitter finish of wood and resin. Light-medium body is dry and has medium carbonation.

Sampler @ River City -

A 2nd beer in the 10-beer sampler tray. A light piney aroma with a decent malt profile that helps keep this one accessible like a SNPA. Nothing overwhelming or out of character for a pale ale. I felt it did lack a little hop finish, but it was not bad by any stretch of the imagination. Just a little...too restrained.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear golden with a decent off-white head and a floral hoppy aroma. There is a light pale malt flavor with a carbonated slightly bitter finish.

bhensonb (10908) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Orange amber color with white bubbles for head. Mild citrus hop aroma. Medium body with sharpish carbonation. Flavor is diacetyl, citrus and a hint of caramel. Finish suggests greasy. This is not bad for lovers of butter bombs. Course this may be an aberration. Note: The blurb says its supposed to have a light malty flavor.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Golden colored brew. Aromas of caramel malt and citrus hops. The flavor was much of the same. Pretty straight forward thirst quencher with pleasant light citrus hops.

bb (6851) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 3, 2006
Draft. Golden beer with a low white head. Some caramel malt backing in the flavor with citrus hops. Slight citrus hop aroma. Medium bodied. Not bad for a lighter pale ale.
