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.

Thanks to my wife for this. Deep coppery color with aroma of caramel malt, solid hops, some peachy apricot. Tastes fruity, on the tart side, with the hop and citrus presence at mid-palate. Smooth and fairly complex.

Bottle (Yosemite Falls) Clear, dark amber color with a sizable ivory head that dissapates very slowly. Caramel and malt aroma with a bit of hops. Warm malt flavor with a good bitterness. Very nice beer.

patrick767 (3524) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2006
bottle under the Yosemite Falls name - Pours amber with a large, dense head. It has a nice, moderately hoppy aroma. The taste is pleasantly hoppy with a dry finish. It’s a little thin and it’s too fizzy, but still a fairly good pale ale.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2006 Bottled. Pours medium amber in color. Overly carbonated. Mildly hoppy aroma along with a little bit of maltiness. Moderately bitter flavor. Very fizzy. A little metallic towards the finish.

Would you believe apricot aroma? Huge foamy head (and overflow). Hazy amber color. A few small chunks.This must have been bottled without pasteurization. Good. Next thing to bottle conditioned. Fizzy apricoty taste. Passes to pleasantly light hops. Might be thin, but hard to tell with the fizziness. Really different. Very nice.

A nice amber color. Poured slowly, but still had the largest head of a beer I’ve ever poured. Fruity, somewhat hoppy brew, but very easy drinking.
