Bottle 12 oz. Pours a little amber color dark for a pale ale. Light on taste a hint of nutty woodys flavor. All in all a pretty good beer. TBone (17581) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2006
Pale orange color, not much head. Very rye-bready malty aroma. Hints of citrus. Malty, but watery, hops rise in the aftertaste, but not much. Tickling carbonation. Quite boring APA/EPA. holdenn (2116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2006
12oz bottle pours a light amber with no head and a citrussy lemon aroma. The flavor is very light malt sweetness with a lot of citrus. Not a great style, but not too bad for the style. TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Looks and smaell like Miller Lite. Tastes OK for what it is. This would be a good lawnmower beer. Fantastic label! BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2007
As much as I’ve enjoyed some other North Coast products, I’m really disappointed with this one.
Appearance was a clear, dull amber. Aroma was lightly sweet and hoppy. Taste was weak and thin. Mouthfeel was similarly thin and not good. I’m not too impressed with this beer.

On tap at the Bocktown. Looks like a ubiquitous pale yellow American lager. The aroma is nothing special but it is beery with just a hint of sweetness. A little hoppy on the first impact but this pale ale is certainly very mild. I am not a hop lover so when I get a taste of hops I cringe, however, the mildness of this brew really surprises me. I find it very acceptable! Medium carbonation. The finish is not offensive yet it does impart the qualities of hop flavors without the bitter bite. Very acceptable for an American pale ale. A style not normally appreciated by this ratebeerian’s taste buds. The best American pale ale I’ve tasted so far out of about a dozen.

Bottle and served in standard pint glass: near amber rich golden hue with almost no head and zip for lace. The aroma has notes of sweet bready malt, hint of apricot, very light grassy hop, and some vegetable vapours. The taste pretty much follows suit with an initial malt driven sweetness supported by a zing of citric acid and some brief moments of subdued hop bitterness. The mouth feel is just there and lack any excitement. All in all this is a boring display of liquid promise. Well it is hardly bad it has nothing to make me remember it. rowefam3 (70) - kendallville, Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2007
This is not really a Pale Ale. Is it? Reminded me of a really beefed up Bud Light. No really. It brought back some old memories. Very slick texture. Probably a decent kraft beer starter for someone. robforbes (2245) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2008
got from my wife for my birthday, from ball on the wall.
pours a clear yellow with an orange tint, good size white head, some lacing.
smell is earthy, grass, touch of caramel, some nuttiness, some malts in the back.
taste kinda like a lager, a bit on the flat side, touch of caramel, some nuts, some sour malts.
