Anything but a typical American Pale, Santa Fe Pale Ale is as full bodied as its most robust English counterparts, while asserting its American origin with a healthy nose resplendent with Cascade and Willamette hops. It finishes with a well-balanced combination of the subtle, almost Pilsner-like maltiness accentuated by the German yeast used to brew this Santa Fe classic, and a hop bite sufficient to leave a lingering smile on the face of any fan of American Pale Ales.

Bottle at the Alamogordo VFW. Fairly straight forward English pale. Not overly hopped but bitter enough. Went fantastically well with a green chili cheese burger.

Clear, amber pour with a white head. The aroma has some malty bread notes along with mild pine. It has a medium body with lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet and a little dry.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a thin beige that lasts. Taste is of grass, malt, hops and some citrus. Similar aroma. Has a good body with a slight dry and bitter finish. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable.

Decent Sierra Nevada imitation. Low hop slightly malty for me more of a British pale style

"fairly typical and average english style pale ale. admitedly not my favorite style, but there have been standouts. This isn’t one. Decent floral hops and malt balance, but a little cardboard going on. Meh."

PorterPounder (7333) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Las Vegas. NV - Total Wine - Summerlin - 12 oz bottle. Dark orange pour, slightly hazy with an off-white frothy head, decent lacing. Aroma has a ripening vegetable quality to it with a hint of onion powder - odd - but not off-putting. Flavor has some peach-like frutiness, just a hint of citrus bitterness and some ripening vegetables in the back end. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Enjoyed this after a long day of hiking at Canyonlands National Park overlooking the canyon at Grand View Point Overlook,

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2014
On tap. Pours a clear gold with an amber hue and a white head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma has a good amount of earthy citrus with light grain and grass backing. Flavor is more grassy with some sweet grains and a strong biscuit backbone.
