ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - NOV 6, 2013
FROM NOTES: August 7, ’12 On tap, poured into a half-yard at The Yardhouse-San Jose. A: Strong citrus hops with notes of grapefruit and orange rind with some sweet malts joining in to balance. Not a lot of complexity or depth, but still pleasing. A: Poured a light orange/amber with a thin tan head that left decent spots of lacing down the glass. T: Malt forward but with strong earthy, almost grassy hops. The malt is not overly sweet or caramely, and it has a nice roasted, bready flavor to it. Faint pepper in the finish. P: Light bodied with a very thin, watery texture. Finishes bittersweet with a dry, very faint lingering bitterness on the palate. O: Good drinking and refreshing enough. Flavors are crisp and clean, wish there were more hops.

Blairgus (2610) - California, USA - AUG 27, 2014
27 aug 2014, bottle. Orange, a tad hazy, really foamy. Med body and mildly fizzy. Kind of sweet cereal malt, light lemon, slightly bitter finish. Okay.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2014
[Tap] Amber colored pour with some lacing on the glass. Not much head to it though. Floral hops, mild citrus, grainy notes and pine in the nose. Tasting notes of pine needles, grapefruit, cracker, grain husks and lemon cleaner. Not as clean as I was hoping for. Medium body. Lingering dry and moderately hoppy finish.

This pale is just okay. Has the hops of a light IPA but it just doesn’t really have a refreshing flavor to it. Something is just a little off.

Draft. Pour is reddish amber. Off white head. Aroma is grassy and light citrus with some soft bread and caramel. Taste is bitter initially with some sweet malt character. More in line with an amber ale but still pretty good. A bit of slickness, almost butter, as it warms.

gendv138 (1331) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 8 oz pour at Rubicon. Clear golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of light citrus, light floral notes. Weak aroma. Tastes of citrus, bitter hops, pine, light soapy notes. Medium body with a dry finish. Friend gushed over this beer on the way to the brewpub but I thought it was just average.

Transparent red brown in color. It had a very sweet aroma and mild flavor which finished very clean. Refreshing and not over powering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerenberger (1447) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Nose of biscuit, cracker, hints of citrus. Pours a clear amber with thin non-lasting head and moderate lacing. The taste is overall bitter with a malt backbone. Medium body and medium crisp carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable hoppy pale ale.

ElGaucho (2207) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Really odd pistachio aroma with no hops in the nose. Crystal clear dark gold. Thin white head. Very dry without the perfumy fruity tastes that I like in an APA. Just ok. Another brew I bought because Draft magazine rated it highly only to be disappointed.
