5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Bottle pours golden, slight haze, small fizzly white head, lively carbonation, with spotty lacing.   Malt, grains, and cereal aroma, with a hint of wet dog.   Malty, a touch sour, with some subtle fruity flavor.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Finishes quick, semi-sweet, lingering malts.   Decent, but not very crisp or hop oriented as I would have liked.

kramer (6474) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Tap. Pours a clear orangish copper body with a small foamy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is piney and citrusy hops with some caramel malt, but it’s not overly sweet smelling. The flavor is lightly bitter with some floral and tropical hops. Fairly light bodied, but not in a bad way. Some lingering passionfruit on the back end. Really pretty nice and refreshing. Just the right amount of hops to keep the sweetness in check. Nice sessionable Pale Ale.

riversideAK (6252) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Dark gold with a nice velvetty head. Aroma is caramel maltiness with some funky hops. Flavor is initially a nice sweet caramel malt, toast, etc with light bittering hops in the finish.

Suttree (6235) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 26, 2007
I get the impression that this was pretty much the workhorse pale in the Seattle area. Whenever we went to eat at a place that wasn’t spefically beer-centric, I could always count on finding either this or Manny’s Pale Ale. At any rate, its a pretty good go-to beer, nicely hoppy and not to filling. I liked it.

reebtogi (6012) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2012
355ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some thin spotty lacing. Aroma is light fruits, light malts and mild hops. Taste is light fruits with some underlying malt sweetness and a mild citrus and grass hop bitterness. A decent and drinkable pale ale, but there are certainly better ones out there.

JPDIPSO (5990) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 2, 2004
Amber color with a smaller cream colored head. Light grapefruit and pine aromas mixed with light caramel. Flavors quite clean and blend well with the aromas. It would be nice if the hotel I’m at had the taps right. Ordered the Blonde first and was quite sure it was the Pale. Then asked for the Pale and then got the blonde. Would have gone into the bar and told then, but Washington State Law would not allow me in with the kids.
