Probably one of the best Macros ever. It is that beer you get when your at a bar and there is nothing "really" good. Nice fruity/bitter aroma with a hopped taste.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2003 Lover of cascade hops? Then welcome to paradise! Nice head and fresh citrusy aroma. Taste is hoppy and slightly sour quite similar to grapefruit. This beer continues to grow on me and I continue to up my rating of it. I have a friend who swears by this beer and I never understood why, but now I understand! Many props go out to this brewery for making thier beer so widely available without sacrificing quality or selling out to a mega brewery (Yeah I'm talking to you Redhook!) This is truly a fantastic beer for hopheads and otherwise. Excellent!

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2003 One of my favorite Pale Ales. Perfect balance of hops makes for a robust flavor. Gentle sweetness as it passes over the tongue and lingers just the perfect amount of time.

This is the beer I want to see when I open my fridge. I have loved this beer since first sip, it never gets tiresome. Cascade hops never had it so good. The only people who will ever diss this beer will do it while drinking a Bud Lite.

Pours a nice orangey-gold with a creamy head. Smell is citrusy. A nice crisp and clean mouthfeel - highly drinkable.

Didn't care for this one too much. Flavor was mildly skunky and I had a hard time finishing it. Herbal malty flavors.

Amber color with little head. Maybe the barkeep didn't know how to pour this beer. Aroma of biscuit and cascade. Taste was fairly smooth with a hoppy finish. The benchmark pale? I'll have to have a few others to decide. Isn't beer drinking wonderful!!

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2004 Rerate: Still one of the best. Love the breadiness of this Pale Ale.
Wow! The hops mean business with this beer. It's a shame it's so hard to get around these parts.

So far, still my favorite bottled beer. I would love to try the Harvest. Guess I'll have to go to Cali.

Amber color with a medium tan head. Moderately herbal nose that continues into the mouth along with some bready malt, grass, and sweetness. Finishes much the same. Decent session brew.
