Medium light body, slight caremel sweetness, fruity, pinapple, hoppy. yummy Beaver (1798) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 21, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark gold with a small white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.drjay44 (3707) - Salida, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2010
The aroma is lots of fruity resiny hops with a little caramel and spice.
The flavor is bready caramel malts with some floral fruity hops. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and kind of watery.
Overall, an OK pale ale. This was much better fresh at the brewery – more bright hop flavors and seemed less watery too.
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very minimal head of short duration, over a slightly hazy, amber (SRM 10) body....nose is cereal with light caramel, and a bit of hop (herb).....taste is light base malt with a bit of caramel/toffee and cereal....mouth feel is light, carbonation medium. This is more of an English style pale ale than an American. The hops are very light, and the flavors are more noble in style than classic American. While not an unpleasant beer, it is also not very interesting. BJCP 6/1/10/3/6 notalush (5874) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2010
12 ounce bottle from a Grand Lake mixed pack - clear gold pour, with a soapy layer of foam - some earthy hop bitterness in the nose, but the aroma mostly showcases biscuity malts, light sweetness, and a hint of buttery character - flavor is crisp, crackery - strong hop profile, with notes of pepper, grass, grapefruit - just enough malt to keep the bitterness from becoming too much - peppery finish - quite nice, actually. msante79 (2225) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2009
12oz bottle from Lukas Liquor. Pours clear golden orange with white head. Aroma is hoppy with citrus, light fruit and sugar. Flavor is orange and other citrus flavor, sweet malt and some hops. Doesn’t really look like an APA and is a little sweet for my tastes. However it does lean toward the hoppy side of the style which is always a plus for me. Nobody likes a malty pale ale with no hops.

Bottle. Color is a light gold. Carbonation is light with a very thin head. Aroma is very hoppy with hay like scents. Starting with a lighter medium body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish is a grassy hay like taste with a faint citrus and mild bitterness. In the after taste the hay taste goes more bitter with a medicine taste coming out. I don’t like it, the hops are not good in this and there overpowering. Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2009
12oz bottle 8/11/09 (Davidsons Liquor-Littleton)-Pours a clear golden with a small white covering for a head. Aroma of hops, citrus, and fruity. Taste of hops, malt, and slight citrus. This light bodied brew is really lacking in taste. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2009
Golden amber in color, not much head, and a super fruity smell that is better than average. The flavor is more fruit, this is definitely hoppy but not up to IPA levels and kind of reminds me of Dale’s Pale Ale. Easy to drink and the $7 price tag on the sixer doesn’t hurt either.
