No clue who brought this one in. Gold color with no head. Light earthy hop aroma. Fairly strong bitterness up front in the flavor. Lightly buttery mouthfeel. Not incredibly distinct, but not bad at all.

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. Its a little thin and its too fizzy, but still a fairly good pale ale.

sunevdj (3891) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2006
Bottle labled as Yosemite Falls Pale Ale. Pours a hazy orange with a tanned head. Sweet flavor with lots of orange aromas (a bit artificial) ans some spices. Sweet and bitter finnish. I like the strong orangy aromas.

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.

Aubrey (3508) - 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.

Draft @ Snowshoe. Pours a bright, brilliantly clear golden-orange color; creamy, fine-bubbled off-white head with excellent retention and lacing. Some pleasant, rounded biscuity and caramel malts in the aroma (nicely done maltiness) alongside some earthy bitterness; more of an amber than anything. Medium body; medium CO2; round, but well-attenuated. Nice, rounded biscuity and caramel maltiness, along with just enough balancing earthy/mineral bittering hops; balanced overall, and hugely drinkable. Like a winter warmer for summer in the mountains. Medium-length finish: biscuity, minerals, dry.

Thanks to anggrec for this sample. Unfortunately, this was a bust. The most overly carbonated beer Ive ever had. Poured into a tulip glass, the head filled it immediately. Even a very slow pour into a tilted glass did little good. The aroma was the best part, malty with a bit of hop balance. The flavor had a metallic tinge, a bit sour. The beer was very thin. Maybe a bad bottle.
