COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With an appealing amber color, this brew has a perfect balance of caramel malt and spicy hop flavors. The Munich malt in this recipe lends a rich mouth feel, while generous additions of Pacific-Northwest hops complete the balance. Try a pint of Pale with the Salmon Gyros, Falafel or Alameda Dip.

RichTheVillan (8248) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2015
Can from Cotteridge Wines; dark brown pour with a soapy light tan head, aroma has light caramel, taste has watery malt along with some light hop, very disappointing.

22. Pours a cloudy burnished dark amber with a very light and sudsy tan head. Scant drippy lace. Mild caramel and brown bread nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel and a little bit of biscuit on the mid palate. Not really very much happening here, other than the cool name and label.

Shared 355 ml can at local tasting. Amber colour. Aroma of piney hops, a hint of orange marmalade. Piney hops in the medium dry flavour too, again with a hint of oranges, but the finish is also piney.

mike_77 (7098) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2014
Hazy brown with massive unstable head. Strong yeasty aroma. Flavour also yeasty and it’s overcarbonated. Maybe some defects in this one. A fair amount of malts in the background. Also some plastic. Not good.

ClarkVV (6873) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Draught pint at Redbones on 12/3/2006
Hazy, yet not nearly as much as some of Alameda’s other offerings. I’d say about medium to medium-high clarity overall. Muted peachskin colored body with copper and light nectarines hues throughout. Sandy colored head is one and a half fingers high, frothy and recedes slowly to cover, providing plentiful lacing.
Dusty, almost metallic hop notes perk up at first, followed by some bready, medium-sweet crystal malt notes. But if it starts poorly, it picks up steam. Hops evolve in to a more fruity, if still somewhat muted bouquet of aromas, while a bit of perfume and dry pale malts show a healthy attenuation. Apparent bitterness, but not completely outdoing the aromatics. Breathing allows the breadiness to soften in to a more round caramel sweetness.
Light citrus in the flavor is joined by a brush of bitterness against the palate, but quickly fades in to a fully fruity and caramelly-sweet array of flavors. Strong, but not overly loose carbonation helps break apart the more rich malt notes, leaving lighter honeyish notes in its wake. Orange fruits (peaches mainly) and more citrus finish it off, but the malt sticks through to the end as well, especially in texture. Medium body no alcohol noted. Lightly slippery at times, from the yeast in suspension, but being as there isnt as much of it as usual, there’s also some softness from the malt that is felt. The best conditioned of Alameda’s beers I’ve had and my favorite so far.....
