Tap at brewpub. Pours clear golden lots of head some lacing. Nose light peach some floral. Flavours fruity light cereal. Taste light sweet no bitter. Medium/light body. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 3, 2012
On tap @ Babe’s. Clear deep golden with a white head. Aroma of butter, citrus, flowers and toast. Flavor is buttery diacetyl, medium hop bitterness and a mild malt presence. Medium to light body with average carbonation and a light mouth feel. This would be a good beer if it didn’t have the diacetyl character, maybe a bad batch. greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - OCT 20, 2011
On tap at restaurant. Looks nice, amber, tight head, big lacing. However, don’t be fooled by it’s good looks. Funky aroma and strange taste. I’m not sure really how to explain the flavors. Strong caramel malt, with some fruity hops. It’s simply not balanced well. brokensail (16609) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 31, 2011
A: The beer pours a golden amber color with a finger of white head.
S: Something is obviously wrong here. Banana in the pale ale? Grassy hops, toffee, and a fair amount of bread. I don’t get much, if any, citrus.
T: More banana on the palate along with Babe’s trademark butter flavor. Mild pine notes as well as some grass. Decently bitter to counteract what malt flavor and sweetness there is.
M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation.
O: When the pale ale is this bad, you know you’re in trouble. Getbetter (1033) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - AUG 3, 2010

On tap at Babes Bar-B-Que Grill & Brewhouse 1/8/10. Roasted caramel malt and nice floral hoppiness. A little too much bitterness from the roasted malt for my taste, but not bad and very drinkable. DuffMan (10549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2009
Part of the tasting platter at Babe’s BBQ & Brewhouse in Rancho Mirage. Deep bronzy gold, clear, scant lacy head. Low aroma of spicy hops and clean grains. Light caramel malt and spicy floral hops. Low-medium bitterness. A mild rendition of the style, but pleasant. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 15, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. This is a pretty typical APA: citric and pine hops, but not over the top, with a malt back bone. Not bad. ABUSEDGOAT (2793) - California, USA - MAY 12, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2007 Tap at brewpub: Aroma was fairly typical... hoppy citrus, pine, grapefruit and some other fruits with light caramel. A solid APA. chargerfanjess (129) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 14, 2006
Good typical pale, fairly clear, citrus pine hop, balance with malt, no head really but good drinking beer.
