Offwhite head. Coppery amber body. Smells like hops and citrus. Very strong hops flavor, notes of spice and solid malt backbone. Very reminiscent of a milder IPA. This is my standard beer in NC thanks to the 6% law.

This is the kind of beer that people should be drinking as their everyday brew. I like the evenly balanced Hop bitterness with the sweetness of the malts. Good overall everday beer.

Amber with a lively white head. aroma of hops, apples and malt. Balanced flavors of light fruit, mild spice and hops riding a solid backbone of hearty malt. Fairly dry finish that reminds me of a mild IPA. Hard to go wrong with this beer although it isnít truly outstanding in any particular area.

From a bottle. This beer was a bit darker than I would think for an American pale Ale, but brilliant and clear. Excellent work for a bottle conditioned beer. Aroma contains both malt and hops, as does the flavor. Nicely balanced, perhaps a bit malty for the weather here in Texas.

Refreshing, a bit of hops,a bit of malt, but overall very fruity for a pale ale. It almost feel a bit like a cider in the palate.

A nice pale amber ale. Bitter, hoppy flavor, but comparatively mild, thus its broad appeal. No real "problem area" - an all-around good choice.

jigglyjock (165) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2005
Pours a riviting golden/amber color with a good amount of carbonation. Has a nice strong smell of hops, apracote, and spicyness. Has a nice bite to it. Can really taste the bitter hops, and some piney spices. I really like how this beer feels in my mouth; has a nice body so you can enjoy the hoppy, spicy flavor from the front to the back of my tongue.

qdog (201) - Cleveland, Mississippi, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Bottle, golden amber in color, medium white head, minimal lacing, aroma of hops with a slight skunky smell, minimal floral, taste of hops and slight skunk and bitterness. a fairly mild and bland pale ale. i definitely donít agree with this being a good american pale ale. iíd drink it over budweiser or miller at the store but thatís about it.

Pours amber with a small and quickly dissapearing head.. Nice floral and malt aroma. Has a mildly sweet taste with a good hoppy mix.. Good Pale Ale.
