This is a pretty good pale ale that is very easy to find. It is light enough that you can drink it as one of your "common" beers. For a pale ale it is one of the best. It is also a good beer to buy at places that donít carry the "good ones."

One of my very favorite everyday beers. A classic pale ale that is very affordable.

Being a fan of IPAís, this one is often the most accessible at bars and restaurants ... and for good reason. A good overall balance of flavor, with a certain richness with each consumption. Quintessential IPA after-taste, but not as complex or impressive as many other offerings. Always a good selection, rarely disappoinrs.

Not anything really wrong with this beer, except that my crazy roomate buys nothing but it. That said there isnt really anything this beer has going for it. Its a pale ale thats better than rolling rock but that isnt saying much.

A good pale ale, although a bad pour can make it taste like you swallowed the Head & Shoulders during your morning shower. Not something I order often, but itíll do when I crave a pale ale.

Perhaps the best easily-attainable pale ale on the market. Dark golden color with marginal head. Flavor is deliciously hoppy with spicy note. Quite smooth for a beer with such a high alcohol content. Good for almost any occasion. Might be one of the finest easily-accesible american beers of ANY style.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2004 A terrific pale ale, One might argue itís the best and i would not put up a fight. A good amount of golden tan head and the beer itself has a golden color.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2006 Amber color with soso head. Aroma of moderate hops and stale tropical fruit.Initially tasted of hops,old grapefruit but turned to a nasty bitterness with armpit sweat. Had to sacrifice a 1/3 bottle of Victory Old Horizontal to finish the glass. I enjoy hoppy beers but this one SUCKED!
Rerate 3-06. I musta got a bad batch the 1st time around. This basically a decently mild hp session beer. Nothing more,nothing less.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber colour, with good sized off-white head. Aroma is flowery, hoppy and fruity.
The taste is complex and nice; malty then hoppy, sweet and then slightly bitter aftertaste.Medium bodied with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Smooth and refreshing.
