Zymurgeist2 (961) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Out of a pint glass outside of Yosemite at "California’s oldest saloon." Hazy gold color with a nice white head that remains full and lacy. Nice hop aroma. Taste of well balanced hops and malts follows through with generous citrusy hops on the finish. Mouth.

illidurit (2124) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Labeled as Yosemite Falls Pale Ale. Pours clear gold with a decent-sized white head, moderate retention and lacing. Aroma is mild citrus and pale malts. Flavor is biscuity malts and light grapefruit hops. Finishes bready and not bitter. On the watery end of the spectrum, pretty easy to drink.

baraciisch (1737) - USA - JUN 3, 2009
Had right after the Grizzly on my way to Yosemite Park at a saloon in a neighboring town... Golden in color... Mild hops aroma... Mild hoppy flavor initially, tastes kind of watery and weak going down, slight bitterness on the palate... Average beer but better than most east coast pale ales... Definitely drinkable.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Sampled during Cellar’s weekly beer gathering and shared by a non-ratebeerian as Yosemite Falls Pale Ale. Pours a clear golden pale brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of golden grain malt, some grapefruit, honey and a touch of citrus zest. Taste is medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of multi-grain malt, some citrus and mild hard fruit. Finish is slightly bitter with a multi-grain and citrus aftertaste. Nice balanced flavor on this APA.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JAN 14, 2009
On tap at the brew pub in Arnold. This was a near perfect pale ale. Poured a nice orange/amber color with a thin white head. Huge grapefruit and citrus hops on the nose with enough malt hiding in the background to make it interesting. The flavor was more citrus hops, but the malt balance was perfect. Spot on. Not to bitter, not to malty. This was a fantastic beer. Made the side trip to Arnold 100% worth the drive.

JK (4377) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2008
From Skyview I think, as Yosemite Pale Ale. Llight hops and malt in the flavor and aroma. Drinkable enough, but nothing impressive. No flaws stand out, and sometimes that is enough.

No clue who brought this one in. Gold color with no head. Light earthy hop aroma. Fairly strong bitterness up front in the flavor. Lightly buttery mouthfeel. Not incredibly distinct, but not bad at all.
