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.

Fatehunter (2561) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Thin head on a hazy, medium straw colored body. Lots of bubbles coming up. The aroma is rich malt with the slightest citrus. Mild bitter start, medium malt sweetness in the middle, and a long dry bitter finish. Great balance and depth. Smooth texture, moderate carbonation and medium body. A better than average pale ale.

(Mad River Steelhead Extra Pale Ale) Bottle 355ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 5.6% Deep orange colour on the body, clear, small and a bit thin white head on top, average retention. Not much of an aroma, some caramel malts and fruity hints. Taste has also caramel malts, faint tropical fruits, faint peach. Medium body, soft carbonation. Okay.

Pale ale maltosa ligeramente afrutada que no aporta gran cosa. SIN FECHA de consumo ni lote, por lo que no se si será este el problema.

vinivini (2264) - Gomel, BELARUS - DEC 11, 2016
Light honey yellow, cloudy. Honey malts, floral & perfumy hop, starch. Medium body. Dry malty taste. Floral hop along. More hop would benefit it.

Can via 5000. Pours a drab and unclear golden/amber. Far from the bright they describe. Decent head. Very mild bitterness is an understatement as well....as hops are barely present. This must be magic freshly tapped. Overall a bit boring.

Idiosynkrasie (7440) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2016
355ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with small to average, thick, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Mild, husky, malt-spicy aroma, a floral touch. Taste is husky, malt-spicy, slightly bitter hoppy overtones with a floral touch. Simple, unspectacular.

andrewje41 (3767) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2016
12 oz bottle poured at a restaurant in North Cali near the source. Bright golden cloudy pour with a high carb, active fizz head. Very gentle hop aroma. A ton of dry, dusty straw grain throughout. A savior splash of juicy, yet bitter combined hops. Overall an easy drinking pale. Light, and medium refreshment. Not bad.
