Buddy, pal, mate, brother (or sister) from another mother, compadre . . . sidekick. All of these are ways to describe someone or something that is always at your side. Sidekick extra pale ale is one of those things. This golden colored ale is loaded with juicy citrus and passion fruit hop aroma yet balanced with malt and hop character. A true companion.

Pours a golden color with a big white head. The aroma is very nice with floral and citrus hops, some fruit and grass. The flavor has a light sweet base that gives way to the floral and fruity hops. Clean and dry finish. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Atom (1972) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2013
12oz can pours a clear pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma of bready caramel malts with tropical hops. Very sessionable crisp clean hop bite, not overwhelming, resinously bitter all well balanced with some citrus and tropical fruits and a clean caramel malt. Very drinkable! Nice one to drink from the can.

Can. Pours a pale golden with a big soapy off-white head. Aroma is clean grassy, citrusy hops on a light crisp body. Light crispy body with a mild bitterness and floral notes. Very light and quaffable session beer.

Nice hoppy citrus pale ale. Clean and refreshing. Slightly bitter but with a very pleasant fruity hop feel that dissipates quickly leaving you reaching for more. Well done ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Can from Good Beer. Pours a clean, clear pale gold with a finger of white head that doesn’t stay to visit for very long. Nose is candied grapefruit rind, bitter and birch-y. Some grass. Zesty, bitter taste. Slightly metallic finish. Lots of flavor for a 5.1% abv beer, but something about this kicks a bit too hard.

Onslow (1318) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Pour from a 12 oz can. Fantastic aroma of tart fruit - pear, green apple - and mango, grass. Crystal clear yellow brew with fluffy white head. Taste is light sweet malt offset by tart fruit, start to finish with a little more grass in the end. Light and crisp with moderate carbonation. Refreshing light flavor. Most excellent APA.

big grassy, citrus hop notes, along with a bit of fruitiness. really nice clear light golden color, like a german helles lager. generous, foamy head, which holds on well. solid malt flavor, nice and clean, with some hop flavor, but not exceedingly bitter. solid medium body. the aftertaste has a lingering hop-juice flavor, which isn’t really my thing. all in all, a very good american pale ale.

Narnad (1515) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Pours a very clean straw color with a dense, white foamy head. Aroma has a good dose of lemon and grapefruit with a modest amount of pale malt in the background. Flavor is pretty hoppy for a light alcohol brew. Notes of lemon and light grapefruit, some light tropical fruit late in the tasting. Malt is there but not a focal point of the brew and adds a light sweetness to it late. Body is very light with some light fizzy feel. Overall a pretty tasty beer. No overbearing flavors and pretty well balanced.
