Medium amber color, full off white head. A mostly hoppy ale with hints of sweet malts, yeast, and summer florals. A light bodied ale, nicely carbonated with a crisp and clean hop finish. RSRIZZO (2000) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2007
Had this beer on 6/9/2006. Aroma has a nice hoppy scent to it. Color is a rich gold with good carbonation and a nice head. Taste is light, crisp and hoppy. Starting with a light body it goes down easy with a refreshing feel. Finish comes on with fizzy feel and a faint malt flavor then is backed by a fresh hop flavor and mild bitterness. As you rest the hop flavor builds nicely. Overall its a very good, well rounded and refreshing Pale Ale. This is a nice light Pale that has very good hop character. madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Bottle. Pour is light amber with a thin off white head. Aroma of pine with a touch of sweetness. Flavor is more pine hops, somewhat abrasive, rounded out with some sweet malt. Little bit of bitterness in the finish. Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2007
Pours amberish with a nose mostly of pine. Flavor is too piney for my flava buds. Light malt flavors try to show up and save this beer, but to no avail. DrnkMcDermott (3104) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Nice cascade hop smell, pours a good coppery color with a decent, stiff head. Taste is of nice, toasty malt, a pleasing low level of PNW hop. Nothing huge like an SNPA, but pretty decent as a mass-produced pale ale goes. It’s worth picking up.

I was disappointed in this. It is easily the strongest Pale Ale I have yet to have. Full thick head very strong almost bitter flavor. Nice color and still easily to drink. Just too heavy for my taste in a Pale. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Bottled. Poured a clear, bright lighter orange with a short cap of well-retained off-white head and lots of rising carbonation. The aroma picked up sweet caramel with dried floral notes and fainter citrus. The flavor was quite tasty and refreshing.. sweet caramel and light grapefruit meat at the core with building pine and citrus bitterness eminating outward.. left caramel and citrus zest at the finish. Lighter-bodied with nice balance to it.. short-ish refreshing finish. marcus (10337) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 6, 2007
On tap at Hop Leaf (Chicago). This light amber ale poured with a thin off-white head. It’s very hoppy and carbonated, and serves as a refreshing drink on a hot day. DocLock (10728) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Dark straw pour with smallish head. Aroma is bready caramel malt, Cascadey dry hops, lemongrass, mild black peppery notes. Tastes very dry hoppy, with too much of a hop bill to match the malt bill. Another average beer. Nothing was really offensive here, but nothing really stood out either. kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Pours from the bottle to a yellowish red with medium off-white head and okay lacing. Aroma is a nice hoppy floral-citrus, and thre mouithfeel slightly carbonated and tingly. Flavor was mostly floral hop, with a touch of malt entering in as the beer warmed.
A nice enjoyable summer beer.
