Iíve had this pale ale more than any other, so i guess it has become a personal classic for me. Very refreshing with a crisp citrus bite, nicely hopped and a well done beer. Mouth feel is nice as it is unfiltered. I like this beer in the spring and summer.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2004 Bottle. Large Bottle. Aroma is very hoppy. Pours a dark golden amber color. Head is a rich, creamy light-tan color. Good carbonation. Biting flavor, with a strong bitter aftertaste.

A great american pale ale. COmplexities in the aroma and flavor give this beer a lot of character and always a good choice for something as universally distributed as this one seems. Nice biting edge mellows out into a rounder tasting brew.

Iíve been drinking this forever, it (wrongly) gets passed up for other beers when I go to the store, but I finally have an opportunity to rate it here. Last poster said it right. Itís simple. But if it ainít broke, why fix it, right? Aroma is cleanly hoppy, bit of malt character there. Color is golden copper, very variable when backed to light. Pretty beer. Head is white and fairly persistant. Flavor is very crisp, mildly but sharply bitter, tangy hops ending with sweet pale malts and lingering dry bitterness. Better then most beers out there, and trumps most imitators. Good work.

Pleasant hoppy aroma. Not a complex beer, but very crisp and refreshing flavor. I drink this often when Iím not looking for anything to blow me away.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden with a tinge of amber. Hoppy aromas of grass and mild citrus. Some malt flavors, along with citrus hops and white grape skin. Assertive, but not overpowering bitterness. A little underwhelming, but this is still a solid performer.

A really good pale ale that is easily accesible. This tends to be the old stand by when I canít get a CBC or GLB.
