12 oz bottle into shaker. Aroma is citrusy hops. Pours hazy orange with subpar head and lacing. Taste is citrus with an enjoyable tropical fruit flavor thrown into the mix. Different. Carbonation is a little low for my liking. A tasty, different kind of pale. ExpendableHero (916) - Florida, USA - APR 3, 2010
A pale lager that tries to be an IPA in my opinion. Nice amber pour with small/bubbly white head. Aroma of fruits/caramel. Very easy drinking, tastes of bitter fruit/floral/earthy hops. Pleasant beer I can easily find in neighborhood stores. taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Yellow orange with a good off-white head. Aroma is malt and a bit of hops and some earthy, straw smells. Taste is malty sweet with bits of honey coming through - all mixed with just a touch of bitterness and hops. If you look, in the finish there’s some dark fruit flavor too. A very drinkable pale ale and probably good for entry craft beer drinkers. fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 24, 2010
bottle pours pale gold with a medium off white head. Aroma is grassy with lots of floral hop notes. Flavor is rich pale malts, lots of grass and a lightly bitter finish. Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - MAR 20, 2010
12 oz. bottle- Pours copper red with a thin head, lacing is average, the aroma is creamy vanilla, very pleasing. The flavor is malt with a little hop kick after the swallow, it is also very smooth with vanilla flavor, why does Bud have to own this very interesting brewery.

On draught. Light copper pour with a thin fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet malt and hops. Even, medium-light bodied taste of sharp caramel and citrus. Smooth finish with a hint of vanilla that masks the higher ABV. Goodgrief (2022) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 19, 2010
On tap in some casino in Las Vegas. Okay, it looked smelled and tasted like any other pale ale with some notable bready sticky notes. Not really clean tasting. Okay. sfhodense (4789) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2010
Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is light caramel and light citrus. Flavour is caramel, medium bitter and light citrus hop. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear, copper colored body with a finger-width, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Cool color for a pale ale. Aroma is nice. Some caramels and sweeter pale malts with a nice toastiness and hop backing. Woody, floral oranges and mango with a touch of bread. Flavor is more the same. An even balance of caramels, sweeter pale malts, toasty grains, and fruity hops. Oranges, mangos, and a pinch of tropical fruitiness with a light woody biscuit. Finishes with a nicely peppered, herbal bitterness and a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Light to medium, smooth body with a light carbonation. Overall, a pretty cool pale ale. Very well balanced with an easy drinking body. Not too sweet, not too toasted, not too fruity, and not too bitter. I liked this one a lot. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2010
[Bottle] Pours a light amber color with some haze. Moderately hoppy aroma with amber malts in there as well. Some sweet bready and caramel notes in the flavor. Moderately hoppy finish with a lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Doesn’t taste like a straightforward APA, which made it a bit more interesting to me than it otherwise would have been.
