3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2008 I had this in the bottle at Bear Valley, CA (near Arnold).This is a nice, interesting, and slightly different pale ale. It’s amber with a big off-white head that is long-lasting and leaves some nice lace. The aroma is a pleasant, fairly full-bodied blend of grapefruity hops, honey, grain, with a hint of brown bread. The taste is interesting mix of sweet caramelly grain/malt, grapefruity hops, honey, toast with a light bitterness to balance the sweetness. It has pleasant lightness and is vry drinkable yet has good depth and interest, and is different from other pale ales in its unusual piney-fruity quality.

Draft. Pours with a golden color and a medium head. Aromas of citrus and hops. Refreshing, with nice flavors of hops and fruit. Medium body with a nice, clean finish.
