pours a golden yellow with a fine white frothy head. Active carbonation makes it bubbly. The malt is balanced nicely with a strong hoppy finish that is not overly bitter. Clean and refreshing. ads135 (5207) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 4, 2011
The dryness and crispness of this beer is surprising and pleasant. The golden color and white head add to the overall package. Yeasty flavor, grass and a bit of earthiness make this a great summer beer. thehinge (297) - Nederland, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2005
This brew just slams you over the head with it’s heavy floral aroma. Tons of carbonation....couldn’t pour even a couple of ounces without overflowing a twelve ounce glass.The taste is a little sour on the front end, then sweet on the finish. Crisp and dry.....overall, very nice Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2009 (Bottle 35,5 cl) Slightly hazy amber with a white head. Fruity - grapefruit - hoppy nose. Rather light body with fantastic, fruity - peach now - esters. Lightly hoppy finish. Thanks to xproudfoot for this one. 150306 and 080709 BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2003
Smells like it would be sweet and bitter. Crisp and dry with a slight bitterness.

Light yellow fine beaded head. Aroma is heavy berries and floral. Nice dry hopping.
Flavor is dominated by hops, starting citrus piney and fading quickly to flowers and berries.
Smooth and crisp with a long lingering bitter. Very drinkable. Sigmund (8010) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2008
Bottle, at the GBBF 2008. Golden colour, moderate head. Very nice hoppy aroma, notes of citrus and tropical fruits. Pleasant hoppy flavour but not overdone, well balanced. mkel07 (6546) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2010
355ml bottle. Full rich creamy and deep white head that sits atop a vibrant amber body. Strong hop aromas with a floral thread coming through. Hop flavour livens up the mouth and leaves a pleasant and long lasting aftertaste. Maris (1611) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2011
From a 650ml bottle on 25/1/2011. Has a moderate but pleasant aroma of pine, oranges, caramel and toffee, with some floral notes. Flavour wise, there is heaps going on with citrus fruit, spices, nuts and caramel and toffee notes. There are oodles of lovely, lingering hops to savour long after it goes down the hatch. This is a superb pale ale and criminally under-rated on here. Yet another cracker from Anderson Valley. Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a light gold color with a white head. Nose brings forward some citrus and floral his along with some bready malt. Taste brigs on some bitterness at a pretty high rate for the style. Feel is nice with good bitterness and carbonation. Drinks quite well and is one of my favorites from them.
