UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 a little maltier than i like in apale, but the malt was great. a touch of vanilla and woodsy, with the citrusy hops coming out to play in the finish. underrated, but likely not as good bottled as on tap.

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.

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.
