12 oz. bottle labled as Yosemite Falls Pale Ale. I contacted the brewer and found out that this is the same beer as Thompson Pale Ale. Typical grapefruity hops on the nose and the tounge. I was suprised. I expected something more in the middle. Decent APA.

Draft. Rich amber beer with a small whitish head. Slightly grassy/ citrus aroma with some malts. Easy drinking. Grassy hop flavor, some citrus, and some malt backing. Slight off flavors - light tin/medicinal.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - NOV 20, 2004
Hazy-golden colour, strong defined head. Smells like an IPA, tastes like an APA. No off-flavors, nothing spectacular. Well made and average.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - NOV 20, 2004
Hazey amber hue, modest head formation. Caramel malty nose, mild citrus hoppiness. Sweet butteerscotch flavor, balanced by a fairly citric bitter finish. Pretty weak attempt at a much immitated style.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 28, 2004
In the bottle at the 2004 Crescent Moon Vintage Beer Tasting. This beer had a nice malty feel to it. I like it a lot. Very good hop and malt balance. Still impressively carbonated even though it was about a 12 year old bottle of beer.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUN 9, 2004
(Bottle) Fruity, malty and moderately sweet with a mildly bitter hops presence, this is a pretty flavorful and enjoyable pale ale which demonstrates solid balance; The long lasting finish is still quite malty with some sweetness, but the hops becomes just a little more assertive and shows a wee bit of grapefruit-- very nice; Medium bodied but heavier and a little more sticky on the palate than most American pale ales, but I like it; The nose is quite fruity and malty with a mild sweetness, but a very light hoppiness; Deep orange in color with a very slight cloudiness; Light tan head is nice and frothy, with solid retention and fairly dense lacing; The brewer has done well here with a solid and above average effort for this style

Brownish gold, small white head, aroma of citrus & pine hops. Malt character is good, fruity (oranges?), hops finish is very nice. Well balanced and enjoyable, a decent APA.
