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.

Poured into a shaker glass. Aroma is mostly malty. Flavor is more bitter with more malt body. Palate is full bodied. Really similar to Sierra Nevada draft. Overall pretty good!

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.

Really nice. Clean earthy aroma and some citrus. Appearance is golden amber with a thin legs and light head. Taste is clean malty cereal, bubbly, light sweet caramel. Palate is barely saturated with hop and grain. Overall easy to drink light to med body smooth light mouthfeel

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.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2008 I had this in the bottle at Bear Valley, CA (near Arnold).This is a nice, interesting, and slightly different pale ale. Itís amber with a big off-white head that is long-lasting and leaves some nice lace. The aroma is a pleasant, fairly full-bodied blend of grapefruity hops, honey, grain, with a hint of brown bread. The taste is interesting mix of sweet caramelly grain/malt, grapefruity hops, honey, toast with a light bitterness to balance the sweetness. It has pleasant lightness and is vry drinkable yet has good depth and interest, and is different from other pale ales in its unusual piney-fruity quality.

Poured into a pint glass. Color is golden amber. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and resinous hops. Flavor is caramel malt at the start transitioning into hoppy flavors towards the finish. Palate is smooth with light bitterness. Overall a good pale ale.

Poured from 12 oz bottle, picked up at the brewpub. Copper colored with medium off white head. Nose was a little off at first, but as it warmed up it improved. More on the malty side, not a lot of hop characteristics to me. Pleasant taste, smooth and very drinkable. I did open this up with a FW Pale 31 and poured them blind for my mate. She went back and forth for a while, eventually choosing the 31. Overall, it is an interesting PA, completely different then the 31.

Bottle. It has a wonderful hop aroma with some nut underneath. Nice looking light brown color. Medium body and long walnut skin finish. Its a little weird that it smells like an IPA and tastes like a brown ale but itís not off putting. Its actually very enjoyable.
