12oz. Mine poured a clear golden amber with a white head. Aroma is slight touch of malt, and sweat. Body is sharp and bitter, corn, struck me as very lager-like. Iím not sure if it is the American Pale Ale style or the type of hops they used but I can decidingly say I do not like it. Thin, doesnít do well with salty food.

Decent. Nothing to rave about. Light gold color, grassy hop flavors, fairly straightforward pale ale. Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - APR 25, 2008
UPDATED: APR 29, 2008 This is a pretty good, but basic American-style ale. Itís slightly hazy light gold-amberwith a medium, fairly creamy white head that slowly diminishes to a ring and wisps, leaving some pretty decent lace. The aroma is light, pear, grapefruit, light grain and crackers. The taste is pleasant, fairly crisp, easy to drink, smooth, and rather light. but keeps its taste and body throughout. It is light but dominant grapefruit with light grain, crackers, pear, and apple, with a light grainy aftertaste following a slightly bitter, grapefruit-dominated finish. It goes pretty well with food and i easy to drink, with pretty good sweet-bitter balance. However, while the grapefruit doesnít overtake the beer, it is a little too dominant (my wife said it just tastes like grapefruit juice to her), which is a common problem with US beers for me, and it is a bit bland and boring. However, itís solid and it seems like what Dempseyís Petaluma Pale Ale and Third Street Aleworks Gold Standard are trying to b like, but it is a little more successfull. obguthr (6303) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2008
Slightly yeasty aroma of grapefruit and lemon. Shimmering amber, medium head, good lace. Soapy bitter pine needle flavor. Bitter wheat bread finish. Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2008
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with 2 finger head. Nose is grassy and bready with a touch of hops. Palate is light hops, spice and malt. Medium mouth feel. Nothing sticks out - pretty boring brew.

Cloudy orange color with a frothy white head. Spicy, earthly hop aroma. Crisp, yet smooth taste, but still in a way a little heavy. Mild hop taste. Interesting finish almost bready. SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - APR 19, 2008
22oz bottle. Floral and citric aroma. Lightly bitter and spicy hops over a light and crisp body that has just a little bready sweetness. A little too carbonated for my taste, but not overly distracting. Easy drinking pale, but not really my style with the simpler malt profile. RunDWP (203) - San Jose, California, USA - APR 14, 2008
Slight floral and pine aroma, and pours a slightly hazy orange with a full, long laster white head. They decided not to hit you over the head with hops, with the flavor being a strong piney and little grapefruit in the background. Actually goes down reasonable smoothly for all that going on. some people might find the taste muted, but I prefer to say itís well balanced. Worked for me.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a thick white head. The aroma is really light; some malt and hops. The taste is your basic PA, but with some nice pine/hops. Fizzy and a little bit bitter. Overall, missing a stand out flavor. OK. Crafty07 (404) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - MAR 26, 2008
I agree with last reviewer with the character of the aroma and flavor and palate. I dontí agree that carbonation was distracting and I donít detect this ídustynessí he speaks of but, JoeMcPhee is right. Itís not a bad beer, in fact, itís a good beer.
