RobBestwick (595) - Calgary, Alberta, - AUG 1, 2010
Bottled sample. Sharp, hoppy aroma. Bronze hue with not much carbonation and no head. Highly hopped bitter flavour with bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied.

Jado (564) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2014
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a surprisingly dark amber with a small off-white head and light carbonation. Aromas of raisins, plums, lemon and a little hay. Taste is sweet biscuit malt with a little apple at the front, before a restrained bitterness creep in. There’s a slight metallic note in there as well. A bit thin-bodied. Light fruity aftertaste. Not entirely successful but not bad.

solidfunk (4326) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Pours pretty dark for a pale ale. King of takes the pale out of it. Ok hoppy feel. Finishes a little sour and mostly forgettable. On tap at Metropole.

Bif (1545) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 10, 2013
Pours a hazy dark copper color with a very small head and no real lacing. Aroma or malt, nuts and a bit of dark fruit. Taste of roasted malt, bit of toffee and nuts. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly moderate body, smooth but a bit short on flavor. Fairly bland non-offensive English Pale Ale.

mkel07 (3641) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2012
330ml bottle from First Choice Liquor. Full of caramel malt aromas which are very strong and fill the nose. Bronzed copper colour with ahead that quickly settles. Flavour is very malty and nutty with a thick creamy mouthfeel.

Schnabelhund (69) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2012
Pours clear amber with a white head of medium lifetime. The nose has notes of grassy hops, caramel and rye bread. The flavor has rich caramel biscuit maltiness and a heat of roastiness; no hops to speak of in the front, but its herbal notes appear in the solid finish along with some acidity. The carbonation is light and fine. This one is a decent, straightforward, easy drinking ale.

baraciisch (1977) - California, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Had this some time ago but found my notes... Light hops aroma... Flavor is gentle and crisp with a nice hop base... Not very bitter, a good starter beer for hop novices... Kind of watery, not as sweet as pales I’m used to... The coors light of pales, okay at best

reebtogi (4312) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2012
330ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a small white head that settles quickly leaving no lacing behind. Aroma is light cereal grains and mild herbal tea-like hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with mild herbal hop bitterness. Light to medium body with light carbonation. Below average pale ale.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Clear amber with a pale copper hue, moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Big time tea leaf nose, slight cardboard and a hint of overcooked vegetable.   Luckily not as strong on the tongue, but its there.   Hops a minor, malts are even less.   Some tobacco leaf as well.   I think I understand why those in BC come down to Seattle for IPAs and Pale Ales.   Too much tea and tobacco leaf, not enough hop... or should I say hardly any.   At this point the body and mouthfeel aren’t even a factor.   Next!

353ml bottle picked up at The Grapevine
Appearance: Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head and good lacing
Aroma: Bready, dusty caramel and some light fruit
Taste: Caramel, grains, herbal and salty
A decent, easy drinking pale ale.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 3, 2011
[Bottle] Clear copper color, moderate head formation. Fruity hop aroma dominates along with a mild biscuity malt. Lightly spiced hop flavor, touch of creamy malt, mild woodiness, slightly sour hoppy finish. Body is fairly light. Pretty straightforward English pale.
