COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Snowshoe Thompson Pale Ale is a medium-bodied, copper-colored ale with malty nose and distinct hop finish. Fruity, hoppy, and refreshing. Very balanced and flavorful. Fresh, clean, and tasty.

Thanks to my wife for this. Deep coppery color with aroma of caramel malt, solid hops, some peachy apricot. Tastes fruity, on the tart side, with the hop and citrus presence at mid-palate. Smooth and fairly complex.

Had right after the Grizzly on my way to Yosemite Park at a saloon in a neighboring town... Golden in color... Mild hops aroma... Mild hoppy flavor initially, tastes kind of watery and weak going down, slight bitterness on the palate... Average beer but better than most east coast pale ales... Definitely drinkable.

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.

illidurit (2146) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Labeled as Yosemite Falls Pale Ale. Pours clear gold with a decent-sized white head, moderate retention and lacing. Aroma is mild citrus and pale malts. Flavor is biscuity malts and light grapefruit hops. Finishes bready and not bitter. On the watery end of the spectrum, pretty easy to drink.

sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Pours a nice orangish copper with a minimal head. This beer has a nice citrusy hop flavor with a bit of earthyness and a touch of malts, it also has a slight spice to it. Decent beer.

larryLSB (421) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - DEC 30, 2011
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.

A decent pale ale. Pours a nice amber color with not much head. Smells a little fruity and hoppy. Taste starts fruity and finishes hoppy. Not bad. Had in the bottle in Murphy's. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
