Malty and mild with some bitterness. Mine was a little skunky (stupid clear bottles).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Re-rate) A very light colored copper. Clear with a quickly dissipating head. Subtle nose of toasty malts and slight skunk(damn bottle). Thinnish body ,slightly creamy, has an awesome malt flavor playing with some earthy notes and slightly bittering hops. Balance is incredible and the flavor makes it as quaffable as can be. Very good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice orange-amber color with a fine rocky head and copious lace. Aroma is a rich blend of sweet malt, hops and a little yeastiness. Sweetness enters the mouth first with mellow hoppiness riding atop. The caramelly malt washes all the way to the back of the palate, leaving a mild-dryness in its wake. Carbonation is maintained on the light side, which helps the flavors come out and enhances its fine smoothness. This has exceptional mouthfeel and substance for a pale. One of the best offerings from this very reliable brewery.

a nice mild pale. good balance between hops and malt though it does not have the hop intensity that one associates with good craft brewed pales.

I thought it would be a little better. There are many better pale ales for a better price. Pick up some bass. I still like samuel smith though.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2003 1 skunk, 2 skunk, 3 skunk. Oh, wait there is more. I do not know if I can get over the skunk attack. However, I will try. I have to say that the beer does look great in the glass. The palates flavors are dominated by off flavors associated with pasteurization. An unworthy beer.
