wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2004
12 oz bottle, shaker. Toasted light bread, slightly nutty, hints of caramel malt (L); flower and orange hops (M); light apricot and pear aromas. Hazy amber-red body with an average, foamy, off-white head that is well lasting and leaves good lacing. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly acidic, moderately bitte, dryr finish. Medium body, watery/creamy texture, average carbonation. The bottom line is: a tasty EPA with nice hopping that could use a touch more caramel malt.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Bottle - Pours a copper-red color with a thin whitish head. Aroma is of spicy hops and a mild amount of malt. Flavor is just about all hops and bitterness. Finish is bitter with a slight amount of sweetness at th end.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Beautifully bright copper color, medium sized foamy creamed cap of ivory hue sits briefly, moderately laced with thin patchy sheets. Keeps some thinner foam on top along with a foamy collar pretty much the entire glass. Aroma has a dry leafy/wood hoppyness, touches of peach and orange, toasty, raw breadish malt backing. Flavors are about the same, little more of a malt sided pale with a dull sweetness of toasty bread and a somber caramel blending within, midway brings in some slight fruity malts and hops, notes of dark orange, finishes nice with a complexing little display of hops, tame bitterness overall, leafy, woodish and floral hops with a super squeezed in piney bite and some tannic and metallic hints. Feel is about medium with a somewhat loosened slickness and creamyness. Finishes dry with a narrowing chalky texture. No real cohesiveness to its body, its just kinda there. Not what I prefer out of a Pale, but not bad...but theres better.

Cowtown57 (18) - Ft Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2004
lotsa carbonation. Okay head. A bit watery and not really a whole lot of flavor to speak of. Pretty average and not much better than your mainstream domestic offerings.

Maddog (526) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Light body but very crisp and clean, and a dry finish. Had a 2003 when it was called Fresh Hop Pale Ale, so this could have hurt the overall flavor. Too light to stand up to time. A pretty decent beer.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2004
Bottle. A thin head on an amber body. Medium lacing. The nose is malty and reminds me of an amber ale. The taste is a bit bitter but a lot malty. Notes of plume, pear, hops, and black pepper are there. The finish is quick with some light spice and it leaves some bitter notes on the tongue. This tastes to me a whole lot like an amber ale. Amber ales are not my favorite, nor is this. It is drinkable, but not overly so. I do like the aftertaste though. It is like the taste in your mouth after you eat a piece of toast. Points for the mouthfeel.

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2004
I was surprised by this pale ale. It came across more as an amber than a pale. It was a light amber body and smelled like a red too.
