hoppy and refreshing, one of my favorite overall beers. great color and palate. another bay area great. harrisoni (19534) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2005
Bottle from Cask and Glass, Tonbridge, Kent. Reddish brown ale with beige head. Good tasty fruity malt with extremely fragrant hops that come and kick you in the finish. Nice beer. jb (3445) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Great copper color. Fruity and flowery nose. Unbelievably nice palate for a Pale. Blends the tastes together well with a creamy mouth feel. Nice hops taste but not overpowering. I love Anchor products. telepork (84) - USA - AUG 20, 2005
Thin white head, gorgeous rich canary color. Strong citrusy hop aroma and faint cedar. Head like Ivory soap. Palate is awesome and weighty. Slight foamy lacing. yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Amber beer with a small white head and a bit of lacing. Aroma is pale malt and hops. Smooth malty flavor with some fruitiness and a strong hoppiness. Apricot and grapefruit. Plenty of malt to carry the intense hoppiness. Smooth and round in flavor. I’m not a fan of the style but this is enjoyable. A well crafted offering from Anchor.

Light copper colour with some cloudiness. Aroma is soft: some light malt and hops. Small-average size head with good lacing. Flavour is slightly sweet and moderately bitter: well balanced. Medium body with lively carbonation. Almost has a Belgian-style aroma and flavour. Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Hazy apricot body. Not much head on this one. Aroma and taste had definite notes of apricot. The hoppiness actually caused my tongue to tingle pleasantly. Very enjoyable especially considering the dry hopped bitterness. robpet (98) - Stone Mountain, Georgia, USA - AUG 13, 2005
Poured hazy and attractive with appropriate head. Grainy but fruity smell. Very nicely bitter. Medium bodies palate. Flavor is also grainy/yeasty with a fruity hint. At one point the thought of root beer even jumped into my head. Something there I can’t put my finger on. Very enjoyable. OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2005
12 oz bottle pours golden with a sudsy white head that has good retention. Aroma is light citrus grapefruit and grassy hops with a touch of grain behind it. Flavor is sweet caramel topped with crisp citrusy grapefruit hops. Crisp and clean on the palate this is a nice pale ale. Very drinkable on a hot summer night. blankboy (7860) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2005
Bottle. Pours a nice sparkling, lightly cloudy amber with an average size fizzy white head. A bit more head and it would have looked perfect. Aroma of hops, barley, light malt, yeast and citrus. Flavour has a nice hoppy bitterness to it well balanced with some caramel malt. There’s word that this beer will no longer be carried regularly here in Toronto and if that’s the case then it’s a damn shame as this is a really good Pale Ale and a favourite of mine.
