I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh. Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

Sampler at the Four Queens Casino Brewpub - Also called "Pale Rider" at the Brewpub. Poured a orangish-amber in color wth a whitish head. Aroma was heavy of citrus-pine hops with a hint of malty sweetness. Flavor was pretty hoppy... citrus-pine and cascade grassiness too... the way I like it. Very good.

Suttree (6484) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Orange, with a thin white head. Big citrus hop aroma. Nice hop flavor, too - Kind of rough, fresh resiny hops. Decent smoky malt in the background. Remains nicely hopped to the finish.

I had this playing cards in Vegas and it was called Pale Rider as well. Nice pale ale but not overly hoppy and more of a citrus flavour.

JFGrind (2064) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2004
My beer was also called Pale Rider, available at the Cigar Bar in the Four Queens. West Coast style pale ale with heavy citrus flavor. Flavor has cascade hops written all over it.

(called Pale Rider at Four Queens) Clear apple juice body, some bubbles within, off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, some pine. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, light pine, earthy. Medium, undercarbonated body.

3fourths (9357) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Called Pale Rider at the brewery. Clear medium gold colored. Dry, bitter with a cloudy wheat or burlap flavor. Dry wood and charred fruit but not in a good way, think old cardboard and carrots. Has a fresh hop nose, somewhat resembling thje dry-hopped note of Alpha King, but still with the stale presence and so something I would not drink again.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Nice almost tropical(mango?) citrus nose. Clear yellow/straw color. Good citrus/floral bite with a good balance of malt and a dry finish. Very nice drinkable pale.

jazz88 (2683) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 28, 2003
Tap @ Reno Festival. Amber color with an off white head. Citrus, smooth, refreshing, malty, and a little grassy.
