Amber orange pour, with a thin rim of white head. Aroma of honey and limes. Flavor, similiar with dominating orange blossom honey and lemon rinds, blended with a grassy and floral touch of surprsingly reserved hops. Smack of lemongrass and beef. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2005
Pours a murky golden orange color. Aromas of citrus hops, caramel malts. Flavor is bitter and hoppy with a touch of pepper/grapefruit with sweet malt. Skinnyviking (9767) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2005
Bottle. Lasting white head. Unclear golden body. Fruity aroma. Pleasant and strong hops flavor without the strong alcohol taste. webjedi (250) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - DEC 20, 2005
This went over well at the party I brought it to. I only was able to stand one bottle of it, and I’m loathing to have to drink the last remaining one due to my experience. As with other Anchor’s the overwhelming yesty flavor spoils it for me, and the bath I had felt as if it was too carbonated. I wouldn’t purchase this again. jcr (2785) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Moderate hop aroma and moderate hop flavor. Citrus both ways, though stronger in the flavor. Some sweet malt notes ride behind the hops. Bitter finish and aftertaste. Solid APA.

Nice amber color with little head. Grapefruit and caramel malt on the nose. Flavor is citrus with good malt. Solid beer...nothing outstanding, but nothing wasted either. mrnutsnbolts (204) - anywhere usa, - DEC 15, 2005
Bottle. Smells bitter and citrusy with some malt presence. Mostly a bitter flavor akin to eating the white part of a grapefruit with a very bitter/malty finish that just lingers. It’s not an overly complex beer, but it’s drinkable. I agree with what others have said - it’s a good beer to pound, but nothing more. Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Amber color with a decent but not lasting white head. Slight citrus aroma that’s not all that strong but still enticing. I don’t get the caramel at all that other people mention. Flavor is good and bitter with some citrus and pine and a strong malt background. Some beers are good because the flavor is right in your face. Some beers are good because they are easily drinkable without challenging your palate too much. This is the latter. This is a great session beer. Full of flavor and easy to drink. tinydancer (52) - Gibsonville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2005
Lightly hazy bronze. Thin white head. Hops and yeast in the nose leaves a bready note. Medium bodied and a little astringent. Flavor is bitter, crisp and slightly sour. Overall the finish is moderatly dry with a minor bitter aftertaste. Solid bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2005
Medium size white head sat on top of a cloudy dark straw body. Hops(grapefruit) and malt (caramel) battle together in the aroma with the hops winning. Not strong in the taste, a good sessionable APA for me because the hops is not too strong and more lemon than the aroma, almost creamy texture, just the right amount of bitterness. Good presentation (lacing & head) throughout the whole drink. Not overdone for an American pale ale.
