what is ther to say about this beer? itís only downside is itís hard to find unless you hail from the southeastern United States. Briliant taste is intensified with the exhalation of some killer dank smoke. The best beer to go with any buds. I admit itís downgraded from a 5 to about a 3.5 without the additon of marijuana. Is this why they call it 420 ale... They claim cause it was first brewed on april 20th.. .but then again donít their tours start at 4:20 too. If you like bud, try this beer. if not try it anyway! if you can find it.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Bottle from Degarth. Pours coppery with a white head. Smells malty with some grass, hay and citrus. Tastes somewhat caramelly with light tealike hoppy notes. Finishes peppery and on the watery side.

decaturstevo (5002) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 5, 2006
Strong hoppy aroma from a light coppery, sparkling beer with a slightly off colored head that went away quickly. A light initial flavor and a light bitter finish which is fairly short lived. Had a light to medium body, a dry texture, and lively carbonation. Good lake beer not harsh and not bland.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - MAR 4, 2006
Bottle. A fairly excellent APA quite possibly one of the best I ever tasted. Very well balanced, just the right amount of hops as well as fruitiness. Flavors of buuterscotch are also noticeable. The beer finsihes with a lasting bitterness. Lacing is quite nice and the head is of medium size.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Very well balanced APA...sweet caramel and toffee malt with a generous pine and citrus hopping. The combination is a very refreshing and easily sessionable pale ale. I would eagerly seek this one out again.

This American Pale Ale pours an orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is hoppy and malt sweet. A medium to light bodied American Pale Ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are citrusy and earthy. Not very hoppy or very bitter, but it is very crisp and dry. There is a touch of residual sweetness and the finish. Would make a good session ale. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

shadey (1887) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 2, 2006
Pour is a clear dark orange with a thin white ring of suds. Aroma is light citrus hops with a little bit of sweetness. Actually this beer has quite a bit of pleasent sweetness. The hops are a little bit more grassy and bitter in the flavor. The body is about right for this size beer. Maybe a little light. Overall very clean, and easy-drinking.

RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2006
This is yet another run of the mill ale which is well executed, nicely blended, and enjoyable to drink. Nothing at all to complain about, although it doesnít really make a statement. If anything, this beer is a little too sweet, but overall very solid.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Goldtwins. Pours a clear light gold with a fizzy white head. Nice floral hop aroma over a light crystal malt base. Lightly hoppy flavor over a slightly grainy malt base. Not too much going on here. Very light bodied with fizzy and prickly carbonation. This really wasnít a bad beer in and of itself, no real flaws, just designed to be very weak and bland. Not the beer that they make for the geeks I guess.

ELPADRINO (70) - The Woodlands, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2006
Pours burnt yellow with healthy white head. Aroma is citrus and hops. Taste is medium hops with a bittersweet aftertaste that lingers for a while. Hops are not overpowering, which is sometimes the case with pale ales. Swallow is very smooth.
