12oz bottle. Thanks to beastiefan2k for this "bad homebrew".

Appearance : Slightly haze amber with small head.
Aroma : Honey and dry fruist. Some yeast. "Some" hops maybe...
Taste : Fruits, honey, yeast, not much hops there either. Finish slightly hoppy with faint bitterness. Faint resinous notes.
Palate : Nothing special to report.
Overall : The description speaks of hoppy aroma and stuff but this beer is seriously under-hopped by any standard. Some weird stuff on the nose and taste. Finish has some weird grainy and yeasty notes. Gets worse with time. A disgrace to the style.
Clear amber color with a two-finger white head. Flavor is a bit strange, with just a touch of hoppiness. This is okay, but nothing special. rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2015 Thanks to Sean for this. An OK pale ale. Slightly oily pallet. Low on the ale floral, fruitiness, had some lager like aromas and tastes. On the good side it was slightly reminiscent of the way Bass used to taste. In the old days before craft beer got big this might has been something.

Fairly standard aroma for a pale ale, it’s a clear amber with a medium head. Pretty good flavor, too, probably the best of the bunch. A little nutty, perhaps, and a touch of sour near the end. Nice photo of the bottle in front of siding. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2011
This was a pretty standard pale ale that had a nice bit but nothing that was too memorable excet had it at a nice wedding.

Came off as a standard pale ale to me, with a below average pallet. Didn’t pour very nicely, did not smell great, but then again, its from Cost-co what do you expect...? topherh (1929) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Pours a dark amber with an off white head. Aroma of sweet malt and piney hops. Flavor is average pale, lightly sweet and bready malts with a fair amount of hoppy bitterness. SanfordBrewer (1577) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Translucent copper, thin but dense white head, medium body, medium-high carbonation.heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Aroma: american citrusy piney hops, and some pale malt.
Taste: piney american hops, pale malt, grassy astringency.
Bottled from Costco. Deep gold colored body with a long lasting off white head. The nose has some nice bread dough and a little bit of oranges. There is also a hint of almonds. Orange peels and bread crust are decent up front. A slight hint of spice in the finish. Nice, but nothing special. Kevolutionary (18) - Red Lodge, Montana, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Average Pale Ale. I would expect this from the kirkland brand. Decent aroma of hops and a floral taste profile. I won’t mind drinking the rest.
