A great american pale ale. COmplexities in the aroma and flavor give this beer a lot of character and always a good choice for something as universally distributed as this one seems. Nice biting edge mellows out into a rounder tasting brew. jonwell (104) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - OCT 29, 2004
I’ve been drinking this forever, it (wrongly) gets passed up for other beers when I go to the store, but I finally have an opportunity to rate it here. Last poster said it right. It’s simple. But if it ain’t broke, why fix it, right? Aroma is cleanly hoppy, bit of malt character there. Color is golden copper, very variable when backed to light. Pretty beer. Head is white and fairly persistant. Flavor is very crisp, mildly but sharply bitter, tangy hops ending with sweet pale malts and lingering dry bitterness. Better then most beers out there, and trumps most imitators. Good work. johno (185) - Galveston, Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Pleasant hoppy aroma. Not a complex beer, but very crisp and refreshing flavor. I drink this often when I’m not looking for anything to blow me away. piscator34 (2647) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 27, 2004
Golden with a tinge of amber. Hoppy aromas of grass and mild citrus. Some malt flavors, along with citrus hops and white grape skin. Assertive, but not overpowering bitterness. A little underwhelming, but this is still a solid performer. CBCPaleAle (73) - Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2004
A really good pale ale that is easily accesible. This tends to be the old stand by when I can’t get a CBC or GLB.

There’s not much I can say about this beer that hasn’t been said.... It really is that good. IMtheOptimator (1170) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Poured amber with a large white head that left a lacing on the glass. Refreshing hoopy aroma. The taste has a huge kick of hops, with some very subtle but delightful citrus undertones. Good mouthfeel. I was really impressed by this beer. Dextolen (151) - Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2004
Bottle. Golden/amber color, clear, with a smaller head that goes pretty quickly. Lacing is decent. Nice, floral hoppy aroma. Flavors mainly hops, with a citrus back. Faint bitter aftertaste keeps you coming back for another sip. mjurney (64) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2004
Really nice brew. Pours out deep golden color with a head. Citrus (grapefruit) flavor. Hoppy taste to it. I really like this brew.
