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.

Picked up a 6 pack on a road trip through New Mexico. This a very pleasant. It is on the lighter side of pale ales, but I find that to be very refreshing sometimes when done well. And this one is. Very drinkable.

Pour is a clear copper/amber with two fingers of billowy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is malt and pine. Flavor is sweet malt with medium hoppiness. Medium bodied. Finishes medium sweet. Very nice beer.

thegreenrooster (3081) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Pour is a clear copper with a large white head. Aroma is sweet malt and that is not even that strong. Flavor is more caramel malt then anything else with hops no where in the picture. This was bland, utterly flavorless and down right poor.

Caytinator (809) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2014
12oz bottle. Light amber color, white color, and light lacing. Light aroma. Taste is biscuity, with a little citrus/hop kick, not very strong. Medium body and carbonation. Mediocre pale ale.

RespertFTW (481) - Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Draft at Quarter’s BBQ in ABQ. Clear dark gold color. Floral and citrus notes. Taste lacks the hop punch you are expecting. Not enough balance or depth to the flavor. Not the best pale ale out there.

jerohen (1962) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2014
Bottled somewhere in Santa Fe. Dark golden colored, nice head. Pleasant hoppy nose, some malts, some yeast perhaps. Very pleasant hoppy flavor, malts to back it up, very easy to drink. Really my kind of pale ale, i just loved it.

Not a good pale ale at all. Didn’t really get anything but a watery substance with carbonation.

uhclem (355) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2014
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.

ajnepple (1665) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2013
12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. 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.

rdenney18 (102) - Lawton, Iowa, USA - DEC 8, 2013
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
