COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is not the original Pale Ale as brewed in far away 1993 in the back of the Old House of Richards Building in West Marin hamlet of Forest Knolls right next to little Lagunitas. It is way better. Back then the beer tasted like broccoli and kerosene and the carbonation ate right through and drained your stomach into your gut...

Clear golden color with a nice white head. Aroma is bisquity malts, some nice fruity hops, smells balanced and like a classic pale ale. Taste: a balanced bitterness with some grapefruit and citrus notes. Bisquity malts, pine. A balanced and overall good pale ale!

Det kan vara för högt ställda förväntningar eller bara att alen mest är vek och tråkig, men en besvikelse är det. De amerikanska ränderna går tydligen inte ur, nån måste ställas till svars och har jag otur så måste jag offra mej och åka till sola Kalifornien och lämna in åtalet själv.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2013 Pours splendid into a pint glass with a tall head of foam that fell ever so slowly to some sticky, craggy lacing. Classic copper orange color and clear. Nose was dry and the perfect blend of leafy hops and pale malt. A little grapefruit and a little soap. The malt in the nose gives a promise of sweetness that’s luscious and provocative. Taste is herbal, generous with hops, hay and silky with citrus that wasn’t overbearing. The malt backbone was aggressive and evoked some honey sweetness while standing up strong against the bitter hop oily resin. This was a full bodied and boisterous pale ale that was clean, thirst quenching and had a depth of flavor that was solid and satisfying.

Draft at Park Tavern. Pours golden with sticky white head. Good fruity and lemon scent. Smooth creamy pallet. Bitter after taste. Mild hops. Crisp. Pretty tasty

On tap. Michigan. This is just a great pale ale. Amber. Small head. The slightly cloudy appearance of a wheat. Wonderful floral hopping. Citrus edges. Grapefruit hints, but not overpowering. An all night long pale ale.

Smells of lovely citrus hops. Pours a clear gold with a viscous rocky head. Great lacing as the beer goes down.Taste is all about the hops, citrusy and juicy. A medium bodied beer that has nice carbonation and a great bitter finish. This is a great pale ale with a nice enough hop profile for the hop head that prefers IPA’s. Will drink again.

It’s like you know, totally a great beer. I was totally in to these guys back in 93 before they got big. It’s like you know really fruity but has this you know, great balance and it’s totally bitchin’. It’s not so good now they got big and all the posers drink this, but it’s still pretty gnarly and tight dude.

Here comes Peter Cottontail... So hoppy you'll turn into a bunny by your first six-pack. Seriously, if you are a fan of hops this may be for you. Reminded me of Palate Wrecker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vaguely English-styled malts give this a slightly different character from a West Coast pale ale. Hoppy, to be sure, but interesting. It would be better if it were a little stronger in the abv--a little edge and something propelling the flavors would be good. (on tap at Groveland Tap, St. Paul)
