COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Anything but a typical American Pale, Santa Fe Pale Ale is as full bodied as its most robust English counterparts, while asserting its American origin with a healthy nose resplendent with Cascade and Willamette hops. It finishes with a well-balanced combination of the subtle, almost Pilsner-like maltiness accentuated by the German yeast used to brew this Santa Fe classic, and a hop bite sufficient to leave a lingering smile on the face of any fan of American Pale Ales.

Bottled somewhere in Santa Fe. Dark golden colored, nice head. Pleasant hoppy nose, some malts, some yeast perhaps. Very pleasant hoppy flavor, malts to back it up, very easy to drink. Really my kind of pale ale, i just loved it.

Not a good pale ale at all. Didn’t really get anything but a watery substance with carbonation.

Very nice pale ale. Pours a light amber with a tan head and substantial lacing. Nose is pine and citrus. Taste recapitulates the nose and adds more grapefruit and malt. Mouthfeel has a lingering thickness and the finish is bitter and long-lasting. If I were blindfolded, I would have thought this an IPA. Nicely done.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Gold and clear with a white head. Aroma and flavor of toasted malts, toffee, caramel, citrus fruit and light pine. Light to medium body with a crisp feel and a smooth finish.

12 oz bottle. Not my favorite pale. Has almost a coffee taste to it. Doesn't have the usual hops that I like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer was mellow with not a lot of ale flavors that I would normally expect, but the malts were very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nellycale (213) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle. Aroma is subtle. Toasted malts, caramel, and some barnyard notes. Pours a hazy amber hue with a white ring and minimal lacing. Taste is fruity initially with biscuit, caramel in the middle and a little citrus kick in the finish. Malt is very pronounced.Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a sub par pale ale. Just not worth another. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DiarmaidBHK (5947) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Draft at taproom. Pours golden with a half inch of white foam. Not much on the nose. Maybe 2 or 3 hops died in the making of this beer but this tastes like mostly malt to me. Finishes clean. It’s not bad or undrinkable just not compelling.

rosenbergh (11868) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2013
12 oz bottle. (Midtown Liquor) Tulsa, OK.

Clear amber colour with a tiny white head.
The aroma is floral hops, mild malty sweetness and honey... could it be?
The flavour is pretty much the same. Well... it’s definitely closer to an English Pale Ale than American Pale Ale even though it’s quite strong. It’s drinkable but not that tasty. Too sweet to be honest. Some bitterness in the aftertaste.
