22 FL OZ ($5.99) So the rare find on the shelf these days since its been discontinued. I’m trying this as of 7/25/2014 so 2 Years old... well its still drinkable and not spoiled, may have lost some of its character over the years but a friend of mine who owns the store knows how to keep his beers. Has a little bit of a bite and is mid range IBUs, finished creamy. personally i’m not a huge fan of noble but i did want to try this at least

Pours a yellow color with aroma of grass and clean water. Taste is a bit floral with a bitter aftertaste. A distinct pale ale taste that disappears quickly. A clean tasting beer that was refreshing overall.

Brewer’s special tap at my place of work (fresh keg). Pours with a hazed golden-orange hued body with a medium sized white head. Aromas are hoppy and herbaceous with light DMTS, citrusy, dank, medium tangerine, low caramel and light spice. Flavors show a low caramel and bready malt profile, tangerine, dank, herbaceous and pine like hops. Medium body, dry, light mineral quality. Very good place ale when it is this fresh!

On tap at the brewery. Pours a light copper/yellow with medium white head that retains and laces fairly well. Aroma is a very nice hop profile for a pale ale. Taste is again, very nice for a pale ale with hops coming front and center, great mouth feel and just feels like a great drinking beer. Overall, this is the beer I will have before Angels games when I come to Noble. Great price and drinking at 5%.

6 Oct 2011, Tap at the brewery. yellow w/ pink hue, clear steady bubbles. soft grapefruit rind citrus hops w/ faint alcohol and some dried pale malt. med body and moderately fizzy. not great. has a very odd grassy flavor w/ dry finish.

A: The pour is sort of orange in color with a finger of white head and some spots of lacing. S: This doesn’t smell much like an English Pale Ale. Lots of citrus hops, particularly orange and grapefruit. There’s a decent pine quality to it as well. I guess the prominent bread malt character is what makes this "English". T: A big hop bitterness to the beer, mostly in the form of pine and grapefruit peels. There’s a mild grassiness to this beer along with plenty of bread and slightly sweet malt flavors. M: The body is medium and the carbonation is as well. A slight bitterness lingers on the finish. D: This is pretty easy to drink, like you would want for a pale ale. Not the best out there, but a pretty decent beer.

I had this beer on tap at Orange County Brew Ha Ha in Irvine, CA. Not as hoppy as I’d expect from an APA, but it has a touch of hops. ok

Sampled on 8/20/2010. This American Pale Ale pours a slightly hazy copper amber color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, sweet and a touch floral. Medium bodied Pale Ale. The malts are fruity, caramel and sweet. The hops are floral and herbal, Nice carbonation. Decent balance. A touch more of an English style Pale Ale, much more malt flavor than hops. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is smooth and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
