UPDATED: OCT 17, 2005 medium head with a ciderish color. A malty fruit like smell wwith a very smooth aftertaste especially for a pale ale. A must try in my book.

Very good pale ale from a very small brewery. Hoppy, malty, fruity aroma. Hazy dark orange appearance, with a small white head. Fruity, malty flavor. Some citrus background. Very enjoyable. Glad to see such a good rating for this beer.

12 oz. bottle. This pours a fairly clear, dark golden color. There is a bit of a fluffy white head to it also. No lacing. A somewhat citrusy hop aroma. Maybe musty, with some malt sweetness in the background. A realy decent taste: good hops with a medium malt character. Hints of some other fruits and spiciness to the taste also. Not bad at all!

Nice smell and color but there was little to no head. It is hoppy and watery but not bad.

Medium copper color, decent head and lacing. Aroma is hoppy and floral. Tastes is mildly hoppy and well balanced by slightly sweet malts and a touch of spiceinees. Not at all bad.

Bottle. Too malty. I was hoping for a few more hops, but they just don't show up. All I could taste was an unbalanced beer leaning towards the malt.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2010 Another pretty average American Pale Ale. Not my favorite style. This one is at least more drinkable than some I’ve tried. 2010 Upgrade.
