Pint on tap at Neon’s Unplugged. On the chalkboard it was labeled simply "Green Flash Pale Ale", but a Green Flash rep in the bar was referring to it as "Retro". Clear amber color, nice thin white head, leaving good lace. Very nice grapefruit, pine, dry hop aromas. Enough hops for an IPA, but without the bitter or heaviness. Very nice crisp carbonation, excellent dry texture with a good dry hop aftertaste. Lighter bitter taste - the hop overpowers it. Very nice pale ale, one to rival Stone’s, I think. Shared some with Hota: she said it was smooth and light, soft palate, but a brassy aftertaste. thome50 (1295) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JUN 17, 2012
On tap at PP San Clemente. Pours a yellow/orange with big white head. Aroma is malt forward with some grass and a little hop note. Taste is biscuit, malt, lard notes and some citrus sweetness when the beer is cold but that goes away quickly. Overall, descent style but nothing I would bother to revisit. lightandrhythm (63) - - JUN 17, 2012
A light flavored bitter pale ale. Nice straw and hops flavors and a light mouthfeel

Draft. Hazy yellow with white head that fades. Nice lacing. Light bitterness. No hoppy aroma. Nice but yazoo's pale ale is better.

Pint on tap, with two chances. Light haze on the amber body with a small, lasting ring of cream. Nose is mild with wooden hops and faint, light fruitiness. Middling taste of the same, with some added toast and a bitterness from a woody-pithy flavor that dominates. Light-medium body is well balanced and has medium carbonation. Decent for your average English pub bitter, but pretty unremarkable otherwise.

Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours hzy gold with a creamy white head. Aroma of light pitted fruits. Med body. Metallic tang. Light pitted fruit(towards apricot) with a lot of citrus bitter. Finishes fresh and bitter. Most Xcellent. iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Retro Extra Pale. Tap at Pizza Port OB. Clear light amber with a one finger white head, pretty decent retention. Flavor has lots of biscuit malt, light sweaty Cascade hops present. Minimal sweetness, zero caramel. Aroma followed suit. Dry finish, bitterness at a 3. Light body with light to moderate carbonation. Good summer beer, though might be boring to some. 7-4-7-4-14--3.6 mainly because of drinkability. No flaws.
