I had heard a lot about this beer from other "micro" beer drinker, so when it went on sale for $4.99 a six i thought i,de give it a go. Pours pretty nicelly, but doesnt hold a head to well, the smell is good. Has a nice after taste to it , thiough the feel in the mouth is pretty average. I was drinking this with a hang over already so maybe i found the drinkabilty less than i would have in top condition LOL

This is a beer that makes living in a place with a lack of good beers bearable. You can get it nearly everywhere, and you always know that you will get the standard by which the style is measured.

Cloudy gold in colour. Aromas are light pine needle and spices. Floral flavour that is light and refreshing. Nice dry hops to finish but not as much bite as the more alcoholic pale ales. The lighter way to enjoy pale ales.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2003
Deep golden hue with an off-whote foamy head. Floral, hoppy nose with hints of citrus and yeast. Lovely floral taste that follows the nose with a crisp dry finish. Not as intensely hoppy as some APAs but yet another fantastic beer.

Very hoppy pale ale. Cascades. Very enjoyable. Deep Amber in color. Very tasty beer. Well balanced with hops and malt. Fresh keg. Very good.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2003
The standard by which all other American pale ales are judged. And usually there when there is a shortage of good beer. Nice spicy hop aroma. Pleasing hop/malt balance. Very good beer.

One of my standby ales. Good flavor overall. Good body. An ok beer that's usually always available in bars trying to handle real beer, but don't quite make the grade.

Very smooth and full of flavor with a pinch of sweetness that really sets it all off. One of the better pales I've tried.

the session beer of choice at the bar i frequent most.... tastes like, um, well, a simple APA. smooth, a tad sweet, with a some decent hoppiness. this was the beer i drank a couple of years ago when i thought i was being cool.
