Nice dark golden color with good head and lacing. Aroma is nice but not overpowering. Flavor is bitter with a hint of sweetness. Palate lingers, but is not overwhelming. Very nice brew. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 21, 2005

Bottle: Clear to cloudy gold color with a fluffly off-white head and thick, sticky lacing. It offers wheaty malts and lemony hops to the consumer. It has a quick bitter taste followed by a nicr malty finish. When it is cold, aromas are hard tp pick up, but as it warmed up I noticed some clover honey scents. It has a lot of carbonation with a thin body. As I drank it, I could see why it is so popular -- it’s a good ale. malika (36) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 20, 2005
Deep golden color. Strong hop aroma. Less interesting flavor, flat; very bitter. Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2005
This must be the beer with the highest number of ratings, that I’ve rated so far. Not much to add, except: wonderful bitter pale ale with a beautiful orange golden color. A pleasure.

A comfortable ale with a several tastes — hops, spice, citrus — none of which hit you over the head. Moderate carbonation. A nice bitterness at the outset. Medium body. Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Poured a clear amber with decent head and lacing. Disappointing aroma in that there is only a very little to smell of aromatic hops. Not a highly carbonated beer, so the mouthfeel was better than average. The carbonation didn’t burn when you keep the beer in your mouth for an extended period of time. The floral bitterness is what I taste initially, then other sweet citrus and malt flavors rear their heads. Good aftertaste with some complexity.

My everyday beer because i’m a hop head. I think if you haven’t tried this yet you’re missing out on a delicious experience. OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2005
Couleur orangée surmontée d’une faible à moyenne quantité de mousse blanche tachetée. Des multitudes de dépôts microscopiques circulent librement dans le verre. Arômes très parfumés de houblons citronnés, de levure et de faible caramel . Une intelligente combinaison de houblons floral et amérisant en bouche s’exclame sur un malt plein de corps et un tantinnet sucré. Corps d’épaisseur moyenne, carbonatation active et très piquante, finale légèrement amérisante. Satisfaisante et sans prétention, une excellente Pale Ale.
