COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich, Northwest-style Pale Ale is a rare feat of balance: unfiltered, dry-hopped to 40 IBUs, and deliciously sessionable. Groove on this two-time Great American Beer Festival® Gold Medal winner (2001 and 2002 Bitter Category). It really smoothes out the bumps.

johndoughty (4001) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2006
An impessive pale ale. Quite floral and delicate yet with a full flavour.Considering it weighs in at a mere 4 per cent this is an excellent ale.

pastroup (2) - Alabama, USA - MAR 3, 2006 does not count
This beer leaves a strong, tangy aftertaste that is quite unpleasant. On the other hand, it has a sweet, honey-like aroma and feel that is quite unique.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JAN 20, 2006
(cask conditioned at the brewpub) hazy amber with a generous head. Pine hops aroma. Medium bodied with the lowish carbonation you’d expect from a cask ale. Nice hoppy flavor.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Cask at the Brew Pub, 2005 version: deep, orange-brown with a very persistent ivory foam. Bitter, grapefruit hop aromatics, with a nice vanilla offering. Served in a cold glass, but the beer was a nice cellar temp. Clean, soft palate with enough carbonation to carry the hops and keep the bitterness in check. A great session ale and done very nicely on the beer engine.

Aroma is hoppy. Taste is not quite as strongg as the aroma but still crisp and hoppy.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2006
Wow, these Utah beers sure smell way more powerful than they taste. This one had a big, fresh, hoppy aroma of grapefruit, tangerine, fresh-cut grass and earth. Some vanilla flavour, more hops (but nothing like the aroma) and a lightly chalky finish but ultimately it tastes pretty bland. Clean, but bland. Weird yellow, clumpy head like bottled English bitters. I guess at 4% you can either have guts or balance, but not both. Enjoyable, if a bit of a tease.

chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2005
Bottle at GBBF, August 2005. Striking ginger colour. In US terms this is a real boys beer but its certainly not lacking in character. Well hopped, with oodles of aromatic, spicy hops in the aroma. Quite pungent. More juicy fruit and citric hop in the flavour but it avoids the pitfalls of excess. The finish is distinctly bitter to provide a refreshing bite. Punches above its weight and, surprisingly, outperformed some of the US cask ales on offer.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2006 Bottled. Clear golden appearance. Citrus aroma and palate. Peach aroma. Quite ordinart pale ale. Some bitterness in the finish.

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2005
Bottle. Orange colour with a small off-white head. Hoppy, citrus aroma and a light sweet hoppy, citrus taste. Medium body and a sweet dry finish.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2005
Cloudy orange beer with an off white head. Hoppy aroma with a nice fruityness. Flavor starts sweet and malty, then becomes hoppy and bitter with a light fruityness.
