Oh, I LIKE this. Pale orange color. Tall, sticky looking white head. The bitterness of the hops just slightly rides over the maltiness, but overall well balanced. Nice and easy to drink. A good gateway beer for budcoorsmiller drinkers to help them move up in the beer world.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2003 The definitive American Pale Ale, and with good reason. It's crisp with a nice hop bite to it, very much like an IPA. Definite citrus presence in the flavor. This is a great beer on tap or in the bottle.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2003 Good pale ale. Dry hop taste without too much bitterness. Smooth and crisp. Stong hops and citrus taste, yet it finishes so smnooth. Amazingly crisp and clean.

Had on tap. Golden, pilser like body with a modest head. Aroma was of hops. Taste was of dry hops, slight malt and predominately of grapefruit tart. Swell carbonation. Definately the best choice I could have made out of the usual bud, miller, coors, bass selection. Not bad

I know everybody else is familiar with this brew, but I finally got around to tasting it. It has a nice orange amber color, long lasting .5 inch head, citrusy and piney hops aroma, and a very citrusy hop flavor. A great macro (not mega) brew for session drinking.

(Bottle) Aroma of english style pale ale. Hoppy nose with a strong hops flavour. Bitter finish.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2003 Aroma- dreamlike, Palate – soft and buttery, Flavor – Striking, Hoppy as hell.
After about two of these Pale Ales I generally need a glass of water due to the IBU’s.
Every beer enthusiast and their mother has sampled this beer, I find no need to ramble on any longer.

Very balanced. A deserving benchmark in the APA genre. The aroma is wonderful... spicy and sweet... a little honeysuckle. Not as hoppy as some other APAs but that might not be a bad thing. The balance is nice between the malt, citrus, and hops. Still... when it comes to APAs Anchor Liberty is my favorite!
