COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper-colored ale is medium-bodied and highly hopped. Its flavor is delightfully complex: tangy fruit at the start, with an assertive hop crispness and a long malty palate that one well-known beer writer has compared to the flavor of freshly-baked bread.

Also a Draft. A decent PA, one I had a couple of on this trip. The body was a golden orange. The senses brought forth some crisply tart and bready characters, with a mild American and English hop edge in the finish. Grassy, lightly citric, subdued and mild for today’s Pale Ales spectrum. Good… but forgettable.

Terrific brew which pours out a nice coppery color with a good-sized tan head which didn’t completely leave. The taste is awesome with an overall hops and malts dominance with an undercurrent of sweet fruitiness. Finish is slightly bitter but pleasant. Looking forward to drinking more!

Bottle: Pours a clear copper with smallish white head. Light aroma of fruit, hops. A little bit of orange in the flavor, light malt and hops. Touch of caramel. Good clean beer that goes down smooth.

Pours amber, smells malty, bready, sweet with hints of hops. Taste is more hoppy, you can kind of taste some fruit in there. Very clean, smooth aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2005 I thought this would be rated a little higher, because I am pretty impressed. It pours a nice red color with a narrow head. The aroma is malty with some pretty good hops. Pleasantly surprising. The flavor is very good. It is bitter and malty. Quite impressive indeed. It has some citrus in it. I think this beats a lot of other Pale Ales. I like it.

Pours amber to nut brown with a small off-white head that mostly dissipates. Caramel malt and yeast aroma with an orange hop nose. Spotty lacing as you drink. Buttery caramel and roasted malt flavor with a hop finish. Fizzy and medium-bodied palate.

I think I prefer this to the Sierra Nevada, beautiful dark color and strong, almost IPA-like, citrus-hoppy nose. Drinkable and rememberable. What more do you want from a pale ale??

Nice pale ale, very tasty and smooth, hop flavor subtle, but welcoming. Consistent to the last drop, unwaivering in delivery of crisp notes of warm maltiness and grain. Good stuff.
