musinj6 (377) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Pours an almost clear golden straw color with one finger head that leaves small to moderate lacing. Aroma initially of toasted malt, followed by a very surprising mild hoppy grapefruit presence. This is fantastic. Medium body with mild/moderate carbonation that is not to strong with creamy mouthfeel. Long mildly bitter finish. This is a fine ale.

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Pine and earth aroma with grapefruit and light breadiness. Grapefruit and pine flavor with earth and bread. Medium bodied. Grapefruit and earth linger with breadiness.

thetmaxx (729) - West Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Poured from the bottle, aroma is malty like a draft Sierra. Flavor is similar very malty, some hop character. Maybe citrus hops. Not bad, comparable to most pale ales. Doesn’t finish to dry. Cloudy pour, decent lacing.

NikkTwist (1390) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle at Monks. Clear pale gold pour. Large frothy white head. Semi-dry floral pale ale. Yeasty aroma. Light citrus fruit flavors. Lemon pie. Thyme. Dandelions. Very full carbonation for the style. Better than expected.

leah2974 (445) - Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Pours a light-to-medium gold with a thin creamy head. Nice floral nose at first that mellows into a yeasty, thicker aroma. Creamyish, sticky mouthfeel. Not much depth overall. Yeasty, mild flavors. Moderately carbonated.

drjay44 (2482) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thinnish off white head, with minimal lacing, over a clear, golden body.....nose is cereal malts, light hop spice.....tasste is light malts, light fruit (pear, apple), slight sweetness, finishing with a light bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation adds a minimal tingle. This is an under hopped, lightly malted American Pale Ale. This is an old recipe and as such shows the tremendous evolution of American brewing. BJCP 7/3/12/4/7

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2013
Fairly basic pale ale, lagerish. Yellow bodied with a small amount of white head. Medium mouthfeel. Very mild bitterness. OK drinkability. A small cut above a macro beer.

thegreenrooster (3082) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Pour is a clear gold with a large white head. Aroma is bready with a small bitter hop. Flavor is some bland malts with not much of a hop profile. Not much to grab you with this one. I’m sure back in the day this was groundbreaking but the craft beer world is always improving.

deyholla (5972) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread and cereal with just a bit of grassy hop notes. Flavor is similar with a good amount of bread and cereal with just a touch of earthy grass hops.

garmonbozia (423) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle from local store. Golden color with thin head. Not much of a smell detected. The taste is spicy with mild hops to it. It seemed to have citrus. This mouthfeel. But this wasn’t a bad beer. Refreshing actually.
