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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy-golden colour, strong defined head. Smells like an IPA, tastes like an APA. No off-flavors, nothing spectacular. Well made and average.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(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.
