I didn't expect much when I first tried the beer, but was surpirsed by such an excellant beer.
Tried for the first time back in 2011 on a trip to the brewery. Pours golden, bright and clean. Nice floral hoppiness, some citrus finish. Just now getting to transferring the rating. MrBeerFanatic (1076) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Light golden medium lace. Aromas citrus, pine. Flavors medium citrus, light pine, and almost no caramel balence. Mostly like an ipa. Lightly sweet and dry. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Drank in July. Had a good golden ale taste to it that was fairly smooth and a decent floral hop aroma. Listigovers (1383) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2015
Pours amber with thin cream head. Smells pretty floral and inviting. Taste is fairly subtle, a bit of hops, tastes very in the middle. MrTipple (6952) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2015
Aroma: light grain and cereal malts, some floral hops. Appearance: clear gold, small, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: lively carbonation, bitters continue, floral hops, grain malts in the finish. Overall: OK Golden Ale, quite light in palate. Pint at Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge, Seward area.

"how is Alaskan PALE ALE a blonde? Oh well. It’s a bit boring for a pale, but enjoyable and highly drinkable. I used to like it more, but since then have come to enjoy the "bigger" pales. For those who want an easy drinking balanced beer, this is it." GarrettB (1690) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 18, 2014
August 12th, 2012 - Traveling in your 20’s should be day after day of walking, meeting quirky locals, and enduring hardships for the sake of experience. But when you travel with the family, it’s important to make concessions. Cruise ships are a little dull for those looking to put boot-to-dirt, even if you’re on a floating city plowing the waters around Alaska. However, my family made a concession for me when a few agreed to make the trip out to Alaskan Brewing Company with me. The facility is surprisingly small, but that left plenty of time in the tasting room taking in the relatively small offering on tap. I began with their Pale, a Golden Ale that clearly fit Alaska’s verdant summer better than their winter. It’s a a deep blonde with a small, frazzled head, and has a distinct Northwestern hoppy profile with gentle touches of grapefruit. The malt profile is gentle and light, masked partially by a fizzy carbonation, a short aftertaste, and a simplicity that lends this to being a sessionable brew. deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 28, 2014
A - pours clear darker golden straw with 1 finger white head. S - a quiet pale. Aromas of soap, pine needles, and tropical fruit. M - light with average carb. Some malty chewiness on the palate. T - tropical fruit, light soapy notes, lemon zest and pine. Very light bready and caramel malts. Some sort of sweet tart like chalky candy as well. O - nice an drinkable. Super simple blandish pale. 3 harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2013

Pours light golden with a solid soapy white foam sheet. Smells of grass, lime, citrus some light grain. Simple nose. Taste is grainy, light malt, some golden raisins and juice with some hints of metal. A really simple, refreshing character. Light bodied with prickly, present carb and a dry finish. Nice beer, but more of a pilsner for the most part.

light orange. No head. Tangerine nose. Nice balance. I get bananas and jelly beans in taste. Pretty sweet. Maybe there’s a hint of walnuts
