COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The original Extra Pale Ale, this is the one that started it all. Our first brew was introduced in 1989 in Golden Gate style kegs. We have stayed true to our beginnings and still brew it the way we did back then. A bright golden hued ale with a medium body and a crisp spicy /floral hop character and very mild bitterness. This unfiltered ale has a pleasing mouth feel and remains our most popular brew. This beer goes with everything and every occasion.

aspidites (1271) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Very soft and drinkable session beer. Clean and drying malt tones with a little earthy note. Vert lite bitterness and hints of floral citrus oils. Flavors drop off at midpalate.with an almost nonexistent finish.

2.2
Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Clear peach in color with a head that falls almost as quickly as it is poured. Not much to be spoken of in the aroma, perhaps a touch of grassy, spicy and floral hops but not any aromatic malt contribution. The flavor is abnormally bland for the style with a touch of peach and spicy and floral hops (just ike the description).

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2005
Cloudy golden color, thinner white head. Floral hops in the nose with some pepper and citrus. Average malt prescence in the flavor with a decent hop bite. Slightly dry, average mouthfeel. Not bad.

tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2004
Lactic, citrus-lemon yogurt aroma. Clear, pale golden coloured with decent white head that recedes slowly to cover. Lactic, citrus flavours much as the aroma suggests. Fizzy carbonation but texture feels flat. Bottle sampled with Enkerli and others.

SpringsLicker (3685) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Hazy deep yellow color that supports a tall, thick, white head. Lightly malty aroma. Thin body with a flavor that has an orange aftertaste. Kinda wierd. Not the best Pale Ale out there, but some will like this I guess.

brewblackhole (1587) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2004
Clean fresh hop and malt aroma, a little biscuit on 2nd whiff, intial sweet malt taste, with just a touch of hop aftertaste. Tasted more like a German Pilsner. Aroma was more promising than the taste.

DarkElf (3067) - La Jolla, California, USA - NOV 19, 2004
(12 oz bottle) And here’s another one of these beers that I haven’t had in many, many years, used to think was extremely hoppy back then, and now can’t imagine on what planet this beer would be considered extremely hoppy. In fact, this is a pretty light, fruity beer with a nice balance of a mildly sweet and grainy maltiness coupled with a moderately bitter hoppiness that stays in balance right through to the finish. The nose is grainy, lightly hoppy, with some mild sweetness. Light to medium bodied, but doesn’t seem thin or watery. Medium yellow in color, and fairly cloudy from fine sediment. Small off-white head fades to a sheen. Overall, this is an easy drinker, good when you don’t want anything heavy, which for me, is a rare occurrence!

2.7
Terminus (3739) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 2, 2004
12 oz bottle-pours an orange hue with minimal white head-no lacing. lemon citric aroma-acidic sweet lemongrass. Flavors of straw, citric hops, spicy and floral. lots of pale malts. light crisp body that was light in the refreshing way. an average pale.
