COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2008
Bottled. A murky golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of straw and grapefruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of dusty hops and fruits, leaning on being over ripe. The body is thin. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2011
Golden-amber and bright. The aroma is light, herbal and with a hint of caramel. Low to medium bitterness. Slightly earthy with caramel sweetness underlying. Not in the hop range I like in an APA.

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - APR 17, 2002
A pleasant hoppy beer -- mild pine aroma; nothing overpowering, slight chewiness to it. It’s slightly more bitter as it warms up and in the aftertaste. Golden with minimal head.
