12oz bottle - pours slightly cloudy gold with white head and surprisingly nice lacing for the light amount of head. Nose is floral and straw. Favor adds pilsner-like hops but way hoppier, but not as hoppy as one would expect for the style. Refreshing and light. Way lighter than I expected. beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - FEB 20, 2013
It is good to see that New Albion is back. History repeating itself, in a good way. This is more lager-esque than pale ale. But it has a nice citric sweetness going on and a nice bit of hop bitterness on top a light malt base. Maybe next someone will re-create a beer from the old Cartwright brewery.

Pours a light caramel that produces a frothy head. Aromas of grain, slight hay, slight hint of metal, and corn. Flavors of grain, corn, light hay, slight and slight grass. Light to medium bitter, light corn/grain sweetness, slightly dry finish. Leaves a light corn/starchy aftertaste.Taste mostly like a lager but better than the masses.

12oz bottle. White head decent carbonation. Aromas of citrus and grapefruit. Good citrus hoppy flavors. Finishes sweet. An ok beer.

Ar: Apple, pineapple, and stone fruit - some subtle grapefruit rind.
Ap: Straw gold, crystal clear - medium off white head with poor retention, light film of foam with a ring of lacing.
T: Toasted malt, fair amount of diacetyl - medium-low bitterness, some grapefruit - sort of soapy - finish is apple and butterscotch.
P: Medium body, slick - medium-high carbonation - finish is medium-dry.
O: Can’t really get into this beer - a bit too much diacetyl for my taste.

This is just a beer. I don't know what else to say. There is nothing bold about this. Very blah beer.

I bought because of the history. I can appreciate the beer for being revolutionary at its time, however in today’s market is is very average in every way for an apa. degbert (1773) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle. Nose is very light -- malic and a touch of citrus. Pours textbook ’beer’ colored -- lambent gold with a high, white, sticky head. There’s some hops on the front, and an almost savory note on the back -- unfortunately, it’s marred by an overtone I can only call ’soapy’. Finishes long and the soap sticks around. Did I get a bad bottle? Dodgrblu (751) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 18, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Sacramento, aroma is spiced grapes and some grass. Nice effervescence and some mild grape notes. Not very good.
