The great American Pale! Magnificent blend of hop bitterness with a distinctive malt . Absolutely a permanent resident on my Top10 list. I love Bass, but this is even better - okay, a LOT better!

From 12oz can :) Well, this is the classic isnt it... Pours golden orange with a thin off-white head. Aromas of fruit, yeast, juniper. Crisp, clean and delicious with ripe grapefruit flavors, a touch of sweetness balanced perfectly with refreshing hops bitterness. This has been a long-time go-to and still a favorite. I should add the Mills River Brewery is a destination in itself.

Well put together and well balanced. Hops give it a mild pine and lime flavor. A solid PA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12-ounce can pours clear, bright, sparkly orange-gold with generous off-white creamy head. Aroma: subdued honey and pine. Flavor: caramelized citrus fruits, some pine resins. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied, somewhat click, creamy. Still one of my all-time favorites.

whiskyjan (9) - Seefeld in Tirol, AUSTRIA - MAY 16, 2017 does not count
Eigentlich ein leckeres Bier, aber fr mich kein Pale Ale. Von der Farbe her vielleicht schon, aber mir fehlt so einiges an Hopfen. Fast gar nicht fruchtig, aber ein schn runder malziger (nicht zu malziger) Krper. Leckeres Kellerbier -- schlechtes Pale Ale :(...

Pours orange with a good head. Biscuit and caramel on the nose. Biscuit, pine and malt flavours go along with a little bitterness. Fine.

RW80 (2500) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2017
355ml bottle. Appearance: Clear orange body, with awhite head. Aroma: Hops, floral and berries with som cereal matls and caramel hints. Tast: Malt, cereal and camarel with some herbal hops,berries and only floral hints with a bitter finish. . Low to medium body and carbonation. Maybe not fresh enough or simpley not living up its hype.

Davros IX (303) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2017
2016 catch up - Bottle at home - I drank this straight after the Lagunitas, which in hindsight was a mistake. A gentle flavour of hops, but not a huge amount going on. Very much a pale ale and no urge to drink it again.
