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!

Pours a clear pissy color with very small fizzy white head. Light malt, cheap grain, a bit of citrus and hops, and piss. Not much like a APA, more like a cheap american macro. Not good. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2003
This has lots of charactaristics of an international lager. Light hops and pilsnery malts, not too great. Watery and metallic. Eh. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 17, 2002
Medium gold color, small head. A medium bodied ale. Advertised as a “traditional Irish” ale. Malty and slightly hoppy. Smooth taste, perhaps a bit too carbonated? Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Green bottle, so it has some skunk. Airing it out didn’t help. Pale yellow with a white head. Skunky with some grainy cereal. The taste is light corn and grass. There is just a hint of hops. Very light and no where near an APA, more like a light golden, nearly a Kolsch.

A weak version of a plae ale. But a good lawn mower beer. If it is hot outside and I ned something easy and fast to drink and it is ceap This is a great beer. hayduke (5204) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 31, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 Pour yellow with not much head. Not much nose. Not much flavor. Not an APA in my opinion, but a very average pilsner. Almost a drain pour. badgerben (5178) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Pours a piss yellow color with a thin head. Slightly bitter aroma and taste, but more processed grain. Eh, it’s not all bad... but not much good either. stevoj (5038) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Couldn’t tell the difference between this and a lager. Not sure what makes it an APA. Not much aroma and taste, kind of bland. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Pours a nice golden yellow color. Aromas of malts, hops, and a touch of pine. Flavor has a nice crisp taste with a clean dry finish.
