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.

Very nice pale ale. Pours a light amber with a tan head and substantial lacing. Nose is pine and citrus. Taste recapitulates the nose and adds more grapefruit and malt. Mouthfeel has a lingering thickness and the finish is bitter and long-lasting. If I were blindfolded, I would have thought this an IPA. Nicely done.

12 oz bottle from Tipsyís. Gold and clear with a white head. Aroma and flavor of toasted malts, toffee, caramel, citrus fruit and light pine. Light to medium body with a crisp feel and a smooth finish.

12 oz bottle. Not my favorite pale. Has almost a coffee taste to it. Doesn't have the usual hops that I like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer was mellow with not a lot of ale flavors that I would normally expect, but the malts were very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nellycale (183) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle. Aroma is subtle. Toasted malts, caramel, and some barnyard notes. Pours a hazy amber hue with a white ring and minimal lacing. Taste is fruity initially with biscuit, caramel in the middle and a little citrus kick in the finish. Malt is very pronounced.Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a sub par pale ale. Just not worth another. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at taproom. Pours golden with a half inch of white foam. Not much on the nose. Maybe 2 or 3 hops died in the making of this beer but this tastes like mostly malt to me. Finishes clean. Itís not bad or undrinkable just not compelling.

rosenbergh (6663) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2013
12 oz bottle. (Midtown Liquor) Tulsa, OK.
Clear amber colour with a tiny white head. The aroma is floral hops, mild malty sweetness and honey... could it be? The flavour is pretty much the same. Well... itís definitely closer to an English Pale Ale than American Pale Ale even though itís quite strong. Itís drinkable but not that tasty. Too sweet to be honest. Some bitterness in the aftertaste.

I love IPAís but this is one of the worst ones I have ever had. There itís no structure to the beer and it leaves you with a bad palate. Avoid this beer!
