Better than most grocery store beers. I had kind of expected a bit more oomph somewhere but it never showed up. An easy drinking brew anyhow.

Attractive medium gold color and surprisingly strong head for a macro. Aroma neither here nor there, but not objectionable by any means. Flavor is fairly well-balanced between hops and malt and keeps both relatively light. This product doesnt try to make a loud statement--a smart approach for a mass-marketed offering. Nothing outstanding here, but very drinkable--quite possibly the best of the Henry Weinhards line-up.

Worse than the Private Reserve - alot more vegetal and skunky aromas and flavors. The bitter flavors just dont work in this beer - its not clean crisp bitter tasting, but like I said, skunky bitter.

This beer is a lot better than their amber, however it is nothing special. Good beer if you dont have much money and you dont want to get sick on the really cheap shit.

This is by far the best macro beer available.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2005 A good brew, especially when price is factored in. Drink this and people may think youre high class while in college. Nothing really special here, but its solid.

Very disapointing. Henry Weinhards Private Reserve is very good, but the pale ale is horrid.
