KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2005
Pours a nice, golden color with mild carbonation. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. A bitt hoppy for a pale ale, but very enjoyable. Another fine effort from a great brewer.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 26, 2005
Pours golden amber with a good off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma. Great balance of malt and hops in the flavor with hop bitterness picking up in the aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Very nice pale ale.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2005
Continuing my voyage of discovery through North American beers (or at least the few that trickle into my local supermarket) I found this exceptional little bottle with an astonishingly complex aroma of herbs, flowers, even incense. Malty taste, and what I am coming to recognise as typically dry American bitterness.

I know many people like this beer but it doesnt work for me. I find it difficult to drink and find its flavor somewhat confusing and complex. Sure, there is a lot going on here but just doesnt satisfy my taste. Technically, it a good beer but not my cup of tea at all.

Schioth (41) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 21, 2005
Very nice aroma with an average, golden appearance. Excellent malty flavor and great mouthfeel, although a bit short finish Overall a very drinkable pale ale.

very good bitter tasting beer. If you are not into beers with a bite, dont try. one of the few beers I consistently purchase.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2006 I honed my taste for hops on this flowery ale. This beer has one of the most distinctive floral aromas of any pale ale I’ve had with such a large distribution. Don’t let your ability to buy this beer at the grocery store fool you--it is good beer. Seek it out on tap.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 18, 2005
Fine though disappearing white head, cloudy orange body. Mild but fresh hop aroma with fruity notes. Hop and grass in the flavor, rather sharp with a good bitter end. Very refreshing and a beer I will consume a lot this coming summer :-)

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 18, 2005
Off white head on a dark yellow colour. Feel vey fresh, on the bitter side. Malty and there is some citrus fruit there. Sour finish. Very drinkable on a warm day.
