Pours amber color with medium white head. Light hop aroma. Light bodied, fruity, smooth. Not too much in malt or hops, good flavor balance.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 Theres not another generally-available supermarket-type beer in my area that can even touch this. For Gods sake, put down your macro-swill and live a little. This outstanding brew (great session-brew as well!) set me off on a quest for better beer . . .

Cowtown57 (18) - Ft Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Hoppy/citrusy aroma, with a hint of spice. Looks nice in the glass. Aftertaste has a bit of grapfruit. Just a really great beer. Very smooth.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2004
Excellent pale ale, only recently available in Scotland (Sainsburys). Lots of fruity hop in the aroma, light amber in colour. Taste predominantly hop, with a fruity malt background, long, pleasant, characteristically american finish (those cascade hops, again).

When i was a kid i hated this beer. Now the tables have turned because i cant stand Mickeys and St. Ides any more. Pouring this creates monster head and nice dense off gold/brown color. I always thought this was from Nevada but its not. Great beer overall and not as expensive as other micros. Will be drinking this more often.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2004
A nice amber color with a thick white lasting head, this has a light hop aroma over a mild malt scent. It has a clean malt taste with a good dose of hoppy bitterness with a citric aftertaste. A nice mouth-feel... nice drink over all.

maybe i got a dud bottle of this. maybe, since this wasnt one of the first microbrews i tasted, i didnt have much of an emotional attachment to it. anyway to me it seemed decent but average. amber, surprisingly light citric aroma, light body, reasonable bitterness, nothing really stood out. anyway, since duff didnt think much of the bottle we shared either, im guessing we got a stale one

brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - SEP 7, 2004
This is a nice refreshing pale ale. Fruity, sharp hoppiness is the main player here. Good color and pleasant carbonation. Fruity, light malt flavors. Crisp and playful mouthfeel. This could be an everyday beer.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Very refreshing, surprisingly complex for a pale ale. Hops arent over or underdone. Great when you want to have a few or nine.
