A: The pour is a pale golden color with some hints of orange and a white head on top.
S: The amount of grapefruit and citrus in the nose is quite surprising--in a good way. A touch of bready malt and a bit of sugar as well.
T: Unfortunately, the flavors don’t quite live up to the expectations of the nose. A bit on the bready side with some faint grapefruit and orange hops.
M: Medium in body, but perhaps a touch watered down. The carbonation also isn’t as aggressive as I usually like in a pale ale.
D: For what it is, not a bad beer. I would have liked the hoppiness to translate to the flavor a bit better, but a decent enough pale ale. Dogbrick (13554) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear light orange-amber color with a thin bone white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing. Moderately hoppy aroma with touches of citrus. Medium-bodied with citrusy hops and malt flavors. The finish is mostly hops with some grapefruit in the aftertaste. Straightforward and above average overall. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 20, 2007
What I had was called Mission Trails Pale Ale, which I assume is a different name for this beer. Clear golden with creamy white head. Grape fruit and pine aroma and taste with a hoppy finish. fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Draft at brewery. Decent amber color with an OK head. Fruity citrusy hops. Some bright fruit too. Flavors came off a bit more bitter than the sweet aroma, but overall, not too bad. papajohn (1250) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - SEP 17, 2004

: Golden amber color with a small (bar pour) white head. Aroma is light and sweet with a hint of hops. Flavor starts malty fading to a light citrus hop finish. A fairly decent pale ale. One of Callahans better house brews.
