(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.

frankR (144) - Davis, California, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Smells and tastes of pine hops, yet well balance. Very refreshing. Drank from a bottle after a long day of cross country skiing, this brew was a nice refreshing way to end the day.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - DEC 10, 2002
Honey colored pour with a quickly fading head. Nose has a weird butterscotch aroma. Slight hop bite and a strange sweetness come out on the first sip. Dont know what to make of this one.

Bottle. Some hop flavor and slightly fruity. Rather bland for a pale ale.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 30, 2001
Medium body, light color. Citric, piney aroma and a surprisingly crisp, bitter flavor. Nearly an IPA. A touch sour at the end, but a nice effort.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2001
Fruity, hoppy, and refreshing. Very balanced and flavorful. Fresh, clean, and tasty. Sweet malt / bitter finish; complements well. Just a bit cloying in the finish, but otherwise a very fine pale ale.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 19, 2000
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2004 The beer after its pour from the 12-ounce brown bottle sets in the glass a slightly bemused golden amber color with a generous white head that is frothy in texture, the resultant lace a thin but covering sheet upon the glass. Nose has a nice malt sweetness, fresh and clean with just tad of hop floral, start is has a nice malt profile and is somewhat sweet, the top light to medium in feel. Finish is prickly in its acidity with the hops modestly spicy and the aftertaste dry and long lasting.
