Ernest (7520) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, light bread), lightly hoppy (flowers, lemon), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, metallic. Plenty of DMS and an unclean flavor, letting you know this has been micturated upon by an evil giant.

Sledutah (7242) - Utah, USA - JAN 9, 2012
12oz bottle from the state store
Appearance: Pours crystal clear light golden with a medium sized white head that dissipate fairly quickly leaving some spotty lacing, good carbonation
Aroma: Skunky, sweet caramel malts and honey
Taste: Skunky, grainy, corn and bitterness
Why a green bottle? Tastes like a juiced up Heineken, not for me!

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Bottle: Light straw color, very clear, moderate white fizzy head that settles to a thin film, lively carbonation, spotty lacing. Looks more like a pilsner than a pale. Somewhat corny aroma, adjuncts similar to BMC product. Not bad, but certainly not entertaining. Slightly grassy flavor, dull sweetness, without any hop bite. Yeah, more like a pilsner for sure. Body and mouthfeel are fairly decent however. Fairly clean finish, but a little too similar to a BMC product to be all that pleasing.

BuckeyeBoy (6846) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Bottle Pours out a clear gold topped with a foam white head. Aroma of grain and light malt. Tast pretty much the same. A touch of hops at the end. Not much of a Pale to me.

Braudog (6517) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2004 Poured like your standard American beer. This has a malty aroma. They have balls calling this a "pale ale". This is Miller Lite! Vaguely citric, but intensely malty. Don't think there's a single hop in it. AKA Henry's Ale

Was extremely skunked. More so than Heineken. That was the aroma. Flavor was skunk, with light hops, and a touch of bready malt. Light and thin. I bet it would taste better were it not extremely skunked. Oh well.

reebtogi (6029) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 10, 2012
355ml bottle poured a pale amber gold color with a small white head that left very little lacing on the glass. Aroma was cereal grains and citrusy notes. Taste was a light malty sweetness with a decent hoppy bitter finish. Certainly didnt taste like Cascade hops, as I have had many Cascade hopped beers since and all were much better than this one. Just tasted like another macro swill pale lager to me.

Doesnt look or smell too good. I was hoping it would be blue in color - that would have made for a much more interesting drink. Quite lagerish for an ale, with hefe overtones. Not too bad, but I am probably too drunk to be rating beers right now.

Skyview (5834) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2007
On tap at Petes Lair Tavern in Milwaukie, Oregon. Pours a clear light golden blonde brew with a fast dissolving off-white head. No lacing except for a thin white ring around glass top. Aroma of light multi-grain malt, some flowery hops and a touch of lemon zest. Taste is light bodied, well carbonated, a little gritty with flavors of light malt, and just barely any hop bitterness. Finish is a little gritty and hardy any aftertaste.

At first, the olfactory is a little acrid on the twist off but that clears to a nice sweet beery smell once poured. Color is just a tad more orange than the ubiquitous pale yellow beer. A little bite on the first taste bud impact but it mellows as the session goes on. Finish is rather gentle, almost like a lager. Not bad. Perhaps even sessionable with it’s lower alky level. I usually don’t care much for APA, but this is not offensive to say the least. Big thanks goes out to riversideAK for a chance to rate this not so local brew!
