UPDATED: JUL 20, 2014 Pours a nice golden red color with minimal head. Aroma is of hops and citrus along with a little grass and sweetness. Tastes hoppy and citrus with a nice bitter finish. A great Pale Ale.

Nice dark golden color and good head. Hoppy, but not overdone. Well balanced. A classic.

PhysZac (69) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Bottle. Pours a fine haze with tiny streams of carbonation. Light copper looks like strong iced tea. Floral aroma with small pine notes and hints that a sweet taste will follow. It really doesnt and I really cant find much here. Very faint sugar comes with mostly bready bitterness. A dry mouthfeel fades to a nutty aftertaste. I would probably call this a better Natty Lite, and thats not really saying much.

myfriendbubba (40) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Clear light amber. Foamy, tightly knit beige head. Easy but firm carbonation. Alluring aroma of grapefruit and dry pine needles. Initially crisp, lightly bitter but staunchly hoppy with dry pine needles, grapefruit pith and dry malts. Medium light body. Clean and arid but appeasing with its hoppy backbone. Finishes with a lengthy bite of pine and freshly shaved grapefruit peels. Really nice.

Expensive, but worth it every now and then. Pine, spice flavour more reminiscient of a winter brew, but delicious nonetheless.

I have never been so torn on an opinion of a brew before. I loved the flavor, the aftertaste was grapefruity as hell. the colder the better. dont try this one warm youll hate yourself for it later. I gave it a good mark, so I would say its worth trying, but it was about 7-8 bucks for a sixer where I bought it, so i may not buy it again.

i dont know man. i used to love this beer. i remember one night having a couple of these, then having a couple st. pauli girls. the latter were god-awful. but i recently picked up a 12-pack of the bottles, and i agree with my friend zeswaft (look him up) when he said some batches of the SN pale ale can be really grassy tasting. this one is that way. its still one of my favorite beers at a bar (like honkers, it can be a godsend at an otherwise shitty bar in chicago). but nevertheless, im not happy with this batch.
