COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Untouchable does justice to the American Pale Ale, enforcing a strict balance of arresting hop flavor and a smooth maltiness that's just undercover.

marcus (6489) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 15, 2009
This amber ale poured with a decent off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a clean pale malt flavor that is a bit fruity, and a nice balance of hop bitterness. A good session beer.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle: Pale golden, fairly clear, thin white frothy head, light lacing.   Soft hop nose, a little citrusy.   Softer malt presense.   Citrus peel like bitterness up front, with a malt background that is far to light for my tastes.   Clean, decent little bit, but seems a touch undermalted.   Maybe I am a malt whore?   Certainly clean, but to me this is a pale Pale Ale.   Light, very mild sweetness on the finish.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly moderate.   Yeah, definitely a pale Pale Ale.   Wished it was a bit more robust, but still enjoyable.

12 oz. Pours a cloudy bright medium amber with a dense and sudsy platinum blonde head. Mild sweet biscuity caramel nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel, toast, biscuit, and a little bit of pine on the mid palate. Not much happening here. No flaws, either, but there you are.

blipp (6111) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Floral hoppy aroma with some sweet malts. The flavor has grainy sweet malts with a balancing hop presence. A decent APA.

HogTownHarry (6101) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2005 Bottle (12oz). Gold/amber colour, nose of sharp hop & citrus. Quite carbonated, a little cloudy at the end of the pour, no sediment in my bottle. Light lacy head with small bubbles. Iím not a hop-head, but this one is fairly balanced - medium hop, fruitiness, only slightly bitter linger. Not up to Stone quality, but drinkable, didnít scare me off with its hops, so not that strong. I didnít get much malt, though. Pretty average.

blankboy (6045) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2005 Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Nice aroma but a little mild. Pours beautifully, nicely carbonated, great colour. Didnít have the problem of too much foam like some of the other posters mentioned. I was quite pleasantly surprised with this beer, nice and hoppy. Loved it, another great American Pale Ale. I hope to get more in the future.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 9, 2003
Golden hue with a average rocky white head and good lacing. Aroma was a combonation of piney hops and nutty malts. Detected a bit a butterscotch, light spices, and vanilla on the nose as well. The taste has a hoppy and malty balance, but also had a cardboard flatness and slight chalky feel, a big deduction. This beer starts very promising but failed to deliver the goods, overrated. Much better APA's on the market.

Braudog (5741) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Moderately sedimented pale orange beer with big rocky and sticky topping. Nice floral aroma. Light body with a medium florally hoppy flavor, maybe a hint of spice in the finish.

jonas (5637) - Garching b. MŁnchen, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2003
Citrus, flower and yeast aromas. Nice amber color, low head. Fruity (citrus) and dry with some pineneedle., medium bodied. Aftertaste is rather mellow.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Nice golden pour with a decent head and some lacing. The aroma is that of floral and piney hops with some sweet-ish biscuity and husky malts. The flavor is definitely malty up front with notes of husky sweetness. This is followed by a nice mix of piney/floral hops. Not bitter, but quenching and pretty nice to drink.
