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.

cblado (289) - Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Ordered a bottle from Doc Martinís restaurant in Taos, New Mexico. Poured a golden copper color. Some lacing, not much. Aroma was light hops and some caramel malt. Flavor had some hop bitterness, but most of the flavor was malt. Overall a subpar pale ale.

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