COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English-style pale ale captured a silver medal at the 1998 Great American Beer Festival in Denver and still tames the thirsty palate. Made with a blend of flaked barley, a variety of malts and a hop bill that includes Northern Brewer, Fuggles, and Liberty, Urban Wilderness tastes smooth and supremely balanced

Draft @ Snow Goose. Clear amber with a small off white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops with some light caramel and cereal malt. Flavor is firmly bitter hops throughout with some light caramel malt sweetness, fairly clean yeast profile. Medium to light body with average carbonation. Nice pale, leaning towards an American style pale now though.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2011
[Tap] Tried this at the brewpub in mid-September. Pours a shade of amber with a large foamy head. Nose is mainly of floral hops and grainy malty notes. Caramel, herbal astringency, bitter hops and mild soap in the taste. Slick mouthfeel. Average carbonation levels. Not a ton happening with this one.

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Draft at brewery: Amber-orange with a thin head. Medium body. Lots of caramel, toffee and toast, but only a mild sweetness. Moderate hops but subdued aromas. Sessionable, albeit unexciting.

nearbeer (3715) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Draft at the pub. Amber-copper with a creamy cover of foam. Faint nose of caramel and citrus. Balanced flavor of caramel, citrus and light resin. Light-medium body is tingly, softly carbonated and very drinkable.

Wow - be careful of this one! My can (brought back from Anchorage to Washington) exploded and leaked a bunch out of the malformed top, but luckily didn’t fully explode - so I could sample it. As I cracked the top open (jammed something into the mouth hole), there was another explosion (pressure releasing) and the pour was very slow, since 90% of the beer was head. Crisp cola/iced tea coloured body with an obviously huge tan head that’s all soap bubbles. Aroma of funky soap, cardboard and stale malt - nothing pleasant at all in here. Medium to Light-bodied; Assertive funky malt and nutty flavours with a lot of peanuts and some soap mixed in. Aftertaste shows a very slight amount of stale hops with more stale malt and a touch of gross bitterness from soap here. Overall, not such a great beer and the whole experience was rather offputting. I enjoyed the can, but not when it explodes, even if its been a few months and came from ~5000 miles away. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from La Bodega (Formerly Yukon Spirits) in Anchorage, Alaska on 26-June-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 16-September-2010.

Can. Amber beer with a cream colroed head. Grapefruit aroma. Light malt and light pine flavor with light grapefruit. Medium bodied. Light malt, light pine, and light grapefruit lingers.
