Poured into a pint glass, the appearance was a semi-golden yellow color with a slim white cap of a head. Sly messy lace.
The aroma has some toast, grassy hops and fruity dry hops to rub against a fair caramel/toffee malt.
The flavor had a malty dry sweetness to it. Subtle quick dry sweet aftertaste. Finish seems barely there.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly easy going sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine.
Overall, is this an American pale ale or a blonde ale? Honestly, I kind of had a hard time trying to find much here at all. mhfalcon (2) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2004 does not count
Golden color, thin taste. Used it as a "lite" beer substitute at my wedding, and the lite beer drinkers really enjoyed. Not my preferred style. dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Light golden in color with a small white head.Light fruity and hop aroma. Clean flavor,but very thin and lacking. Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Light straw yellow with a thin white small bubbled head. Sharp earthy aroma, with some light yeast. fizzy and watery. Moldy aftertaste. Much better than BMC. Lubiere (14110) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2003
Decent head, however a diacetyl nose and mouth feel detected...slight floral notes in the mouth but doest cut through the defect...disappointing.

Very good beer. I didn't know what a bright ale was, so i didn't go into this beer looking for a particular style or flavor. I figured it was a hopped up golden ale or something. Pours clear and golden, with a moderate white head. Frothy. Aroma is slightly hoppy and light. Flavor is crisp and mildly hoppy. Very light body. Slight maltiness, but mostly a light style with mild flavor. Lively carbonation. Tasted awesome on the beach in late June. I'm going to go with a blond ale for the style. jgb9348 (6388) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2003
Golden colour with a thin, large-bubbled white head. Smells of metal and sweet fruit are definately present. The taste is very very watery and slightly floral. This is definatly not an APA, and if it is in fact an ale, which I don't think it is, it's more of a blonde ale. Don't buy this one. austinpowers (2832) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 16, 2003
An adequate, mild ale that's far from an APA. Hardly any hops at all! Likely this is a Blond Ale. Whatever it is, the floral notes are pleasant and I enjoyed it. Decent and fairly mild and sweet. Not a dry or crisp brew. jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2003
Clear, light golden. Nose of light cereal, light flowers but mostly smells like macro swill. Quickly dying head, macro flavor, lots of fillers, cereal flavors, hint of metal and lemon...APA my ass.

Bright Clear color with little head or lace. Sweet well-balanced aroma. Bitter hoppy flavor, slightly flowery.
soda like on the palate.
