a standard. at best, NW pale ale, dark golden, maybe amber hue, malty character with a hoppy presence, good on hot day when very well chilled, not the best but have head worse!

appley aroma, light orange, watery apples with a smooth bitter finish, easily forgettable and uninspired

Reid (2605) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Dark amber beer with a beautiful light tan head thats creamy and thick. Not very much aroma at all going on , just a slight maltiness/ buiscuit. Very light caraamel taste to begin then some toastiness, and a slight lactic taste,long lasting bitter aftertaste. Ok on the palate , pretty average stuff. I found this drinkable enough, but rather uninspired.

riversideAK (6261) - 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.

Can, Brewklopedia, Leicester. Golden with a white foam. Cereal grain with toasted malts. Plenty of citrus with a pithy bitterness. Light pine. Dusty palate. Peppery with traces of glue. This is OK.

[email protected] Pretty thin for an APA, but not all that bad. Some cascadey type hops, lemony, lightly piney. No big faults, just a bit too light.
