Cloudy amber colour with a white head. Aroma is malty and fruity with a fresh hoppyness. Flavor is mostly hoppy and bitter with a slight sourness. dry bitter finish. Nice smooth palate.

Obviously one of the most popular pale ales. I will drink this is on tap regularly because this may be the only non-Miller/Busch product available at many bars in San Diego.

It does not smell all that bad, but the taste has something to be desired, but then again I am not much pale ale drinker either, but something I would not buy for myself to drink. I would suggest to others if they are into something hoppy

Bottle. Dark golden with nice head and lace. Sweet and pleasently hopppy - lesser hop-punch than expected. Dry finish. My expectations werent quite met though it is nice enough.

pours a light gold color. with a quickly dissapating white head. aroma is very faint hops. flavor is crisp and mildly hoppy, with a slightly bitter finish. overall, a good pale ale. sort of boring, but thats the point. i can see myself buying this often, though, because its pretty cheap and good.

pretty good, the only thing I did not like was a slight soapy flavor ? went away after the 2nd one. hoppy and delicious

Since it is commonly availible at my local keg supplier, I am inclined to consume this as an everyday drinking beer. The balance of hops and aftertaste are just enough to really enjoy a cold one after a hard days work, without suffering the absence of taste found in the common domestic guzzlers.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2005 Bottle; Nice compact head on top of a copper colored crystal clear beer. No real aroma, maybe except for some diesel oil. Flavor of hops and a little bit of fruitiness. Some lingering bitterness. OK and quaffable, but not making any lasting impression. Rerate: Incredible soft mouthfeel. Hazy orange with bigbubbled head. Good hop aroma nad caramelly flavor with hints of licorice

Not tremedously complex but it isnt intended to be. I bought a 6-pack on sale for $6.56. I need to find a store where I can get a case every month at an even deeper discount. To consider this bland is a misinterpretation of the style.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2005 aroma isnt bad but sort of bland. nothing really stands out. golden red in color. i enjoy the sweet pale ale blended with a slight bitterness.
