A-- Pours a clear golden straw color. Few carbonation beads showing after pouring. Two finger off white head. Quite nice and thick. Good body to the head. Slowly recedes to just under a finger and leaves a nice, thick, slightly soapy looking ring of lacing with this. Good beer to look at.
S-- Toasted bread, Carmel, soft but apparent pine, orange and grapefruit. slight spiciness to this. Very solid backbone to this.
T-- Warm toasted bread, good dose of Carmel, orange, and grapefruit. Soft but gnawing bitterness in the back of the taste.
M-- Medium body, medium carbonation. Fruit really builds in the mouth. Straightforward but solid taste of orange and grapefruit. Touches of metal here and there that disappoint but a good long lasting finish. Slightly oily in front and mid but finishes bread dry with a good orange finish.
O-- Are there better pale ales out there? Probably. Yet, have they been this consistent for this long a period? Probably not. Forgot how easy to drink this is and just what a good, solid beer it is. Just a classy beer as it is.

I really like this beer and it is very easily purchased around where I live. It pours a slightly hazy golden amber colour with small amount of head. It smells great with citrus pine and pineapple coming through. Taste is wonderful, initially itís slightly sweet hoppy pineapple before the smooth hop taste takes over. Itís very crisp and refreshing with mild to medium carbonation.
Overall this beer is nothing complex but it is very satisfying indeed. This will continue to be a regular go to beer for me!

This is kind of like an IPA light. It has a light bitter flavor with a medium body thatís not overwhelmed by any particular flavors. I just wanted to down a few lighter beers, compared to the heavier stuff like Old Rasputin, and this hits the spot.

Completely forgot to rate this when I drank it. Light amber pour with a decent head. Typical hop aroma and taste; really not much difference from an IPA. Solid buy for the price.

Classic pale ale that is often taken for granted due to its constant availability (at least in California anyway).
