Found this one on tap at Round Table Pizza. They have it labeled as King Arthur’s Ale. This beer is damn good. Pours amber with a thick lasting head. Aroma is hoppy of citrus and pine. Flavor strikes a nice balance between the malt and hops. Medium bodied. Very smooth drinking beer. I think I might eat at Round Table more often!

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2003 poured a nice amber color..it was a maltier pale than many but it still had some nice hop balancing and was a very decent and drinkable pale ale for being a anheuser-Busch product..a fact i did not know at the time.. kaser (6382) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Draft at SFO under the name catcora pale ale at their bar. Reddish pour with thin white head. Very smooth and fruity. Mild hops. Slightly malty.

Draft. Golden beer with a big off-white head. Balanced malt and hops with some caramel. Light hop bitterness. Clean, unoffensive beer bhensonb (15768) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 26, 2007
It’s back. On tap this date at the Bayside Bar associated with the Bayside Holiday Inn in San Diego. Price was right. Free with a bar ticket. Staff had no idea who was brewing the ale. Light, uncertain, hop aroma. Amber color with a white head. Medium bodied; mildly carbonated. It has malty sweetness well balanced by hop bitter. All the elements are hard to pin down, but it is really well put together. The finish is not quite dry, and the bitter is mediumly strong and persisting. Quite good. Very like an English bitter.

(Draft) Pours a clear copper body with a medium-sized white head. Flavor of hops, caramel, and a hint of cherries. fordest (2469) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - JAN 1, 2006
I have had this on a number of occations. I just never knew it. A little bit of research got me the answer. The first time it was labeled Riverview Pale. Next it was Roadhouse Pale, then Dakota Pale, then Corvette Pale. Roadhouse and Dakota were touting it as being Redhook, who produces this beer on the west coast.
Yellowy with a decent head. Aromas of citrus and some malts. Flavors were more citrus. A little watered down, but not horrible. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2006
i sampled some of this crap like way back in the day at some bar at mission beach where i saw the singer of faith no more play with his new band. it wasnt that bad if i remember correctly, a bit more body and hoppiness to it than bud and way less corn.

Malty pale ale, almost enough to be an amber. Has a subtle citric hop balance that comes out more with food. robforbes (2267) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2008

look is golden amber with a smell head, good lacing.
smell of hops and leaves.<be>
