355 ml bottle. The label on my bottle says “Weed Pale Ale” and looks similar to the Weed Golden Ale, but with a green color. I guess this probably is an alias to “Mt. Shasta Brewers Creek Pale Ale”. Dark golden body with a firm off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt and moderate hoppy. Flavor is sweet malt, some fruit and a touch of caramel and balanced hoppy. Actually quite surprisingly hoppy and well made to be a Pale Ale as I did not expect much from. Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Gold, with a small head with a mostly malty aroma with some floral overtones. Crisp and light, hops are present but not overpowering. Some spicy fruit comes out as well, maybe apple. Thin ending, kind of boring. DarkElf (3062) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 25, 2005
(Draft: Mt. Shasta Brewing Co. in Weed, CA) Another sugary sweet beer from this brewery, this pale ale is intensely caramely too, but the hops are way underutilized here, resulting in just a sweet, caramely beer. Not quite what I expected from a pale ale. The aroma is also sweet and caramely, and the palate borders on cloying. Deep amber color shows tiny carbonation bubbles slowly rising toward the creamy, tan head. Retention is excellent, holding a steady, thin layer for the session. A moth-eaten curtain of lace is left on the glass, so this is a very nice looking beer, but in the end, it needs more hops for better balance. 3fourths (9332) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Dark orange. big orange and wood hop nose. Strong pale malts with some astringent hop syrup flavors. Not much to taste behind the hop orgy, though. Some Belgian-like yeast perhaps. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Medium orange color. Large head. Aroma is malty, caramel and hops. A medium bodied pale ale. Malts are mild fruity and sweet. Touches of caramel and toffee. Hops are mild and slightly floral. An English style pale ale. Nicely balanced. Fairly smooth. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is very slightly bitter.

(OBF04) Clear copper body with off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, floral. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, earthy/floral. Medium body. Seems more an amber than a pale ale. Still, good. frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2004
Sampled at the brewery. Flowery citric hop aroma. Nice, well balanced pale ale. Good malty profile with a light fruity hop flavor. Moderately bitter finish.
