Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2003
A pale ale in the sense of Bass...in other words, the malts have more definition than the hops. Not very flavorful. Finishes like a watered-down Bass Ale. As with other Schlafly ales, this one seems bred for the masses, and remains quite drinkable despite its nondescript, bland nature.

Braudog (5932) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Copper with a good head. Excellently smooth. But this has only a light character ... I guess it's a good mass-drinkable beer and is well-balanced. More character would've made it superb.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 9, 2003
No discernable aroma. The faintest hop flavor, but that's a reach, really. A ghost of a real beer.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2003
Very little aroma with wery faint hop and malt flavors. Unfortunately, there's not much here.

hopscotch (9733) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2004 Smells and tastes more like a Kolsch than a Pale Ale... sorry, English Pale Ale. Crystal clear golden hue with a small, fizzy, white head. Fully diminishing with no lacing. The aroma is lightly malty, earthy and straw-laden. Light notes of English toffee and butterscotch. Also, very lightly citrisy in the nose with a touch of honey. The flavor is well balanced, but thin. Lightly malty up front. Very lightly bitter, astringent and tart on the backside. Light to medium-bodied with a very lightly creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Medium-length, crisp, clean finish with a hint of pungency at the wee end. A good Summer beer.

Bov (9876) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 18, 2003
red-amber colour, almost no foam, licorice and fruity nose, sweet and watery with a late bitterness, bubblegum-like finish - artificial and bad

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2003
This beer smells and appears a lot better than it tastes, a bit of a letdown.

omhper (20174) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2003 Bottled. Pale amber. Fruity nose with notes of cherry. Sweet and completely dominated by crystal malt flavour. Low hop rate and near watery mouthfeel. Low bitterness. After their Pilsner and Winter ESB this was a bit of a let down.

Best I’ve had in recent months smooth and clear

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - NOV 6, 2002
Certainly not as big as some pale ales, but still nicely done and really clean. Flowery aroma with a hint of orange peel, malty with a slightly bitter finish. Mine is the New Ulm version, and as usual is first class.
