It seems like this varies quite a bit. The version I had was very much on point. Absolutely delicious and refreshing with a good amount of citrus hops without being a hop bomb. Medium bitterness balanced by toasted malts. Medium bodied. Lovely Amber orange pour. This is one of those pales that is full of flavor but doesn’t get in the way of a good night out. Would love a few more rounds. Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Draught from Rock Creek Tavern - Pours a very nice copper color. It is a very nice pale ale to have on the patio in the summer. I really liked this one. This was a great beer to have after a crappy day at work. I had two, so I guess that makes it a two-beer crappy day at work. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Draught @ Roseburg Station:   Dirty golden, rather hazy, moderate white head, light lacing.   Fairly decent hoppy nose.   Somewhat surprised because on the tongue it is fairly hoppy.   Seems fresh, almost like a Harvest Ale.   Wow, this might be one of my favorite McMenamins beers if ther is such a thing.   Hoppy goodness is what I think of this.   Great Pale Ale.   Full body with a nice resiny mouthfeel.   I liked this much more than I expected.   Kinda shocked.   Ordered a second glass.   Palatable hop juice with a nice malt background.   I was told it was brewed here in Roseburg Oregon.   Hmmm, variation in the beers?   Wonder if they can make it this good back up in Seattle.

Golden-amber beer with bright white sticky head and orange-zesty hop nose. Moderately bitter taste with faint impression of sweetness, finishing lively and dry. Crisp, highly drinkable and tasty. HoppyGuy (111) - Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2008
On tap at the Spar in Olympia, WA. Pours a slightly hazy medium copper color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was of a grassy meadow, also a bit hoppy. Good hop/malt balance and a smooth mouthfeel. This brew paired nicely with a French dip sandwich (with horseradish), and a mixed green salad.

Golden amber color with a thin head. Aroma is oaky with some citron hops. Pleasantly bitter flavor with an astringent finish. Decent. NoiZe (2394) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2008

Copper colored brew. Fruity aroma. Nice citric, malty and hoppy. Good summerale.
This is a hazy beer with a bright orange color. It has a light summer aroma. It has a pleasant citrus. Had it at the Barley Mill on Hawthorne. Reid (2626) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Drinking from a Mason jar ..purchased at Thompsons In Salem
Indeed this is a deep copper coloured ale..small wispy off white head.
Very deep attractive and noticable aromas of caramel,nuts, resiny hop..some floral aspaects..very good aroma for a McMens.
Taste? a very well balamced pale with semi-sweet malt being balanced by a nice spicy hop after taste.
The palate is pretty thin..the usual McMenamins..for fast drinking.
Overall a nice Pale ale for the late summer. gregwilsonstl (2664) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Dark copper. Very sweet maltiness. Nice bitterness. Well balanced light bodied ipa.
