This draft brew poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized long lasting white colored bubbles an excellent sheet lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild caramel malt medium hops. Its mouth feel is initially tingly with a lingering tingly hoppy palate and aftertaste. Its flavor contained hoppy notes. An excellent session ale that is widely available. It is very good to sit and drink on almost any occaision including mowing the lawn. I have come to enjoy this brew in the average restaurant or bar when no other decent brew is available and this is the best there is.

draft Pours a dark golden orange with a good head. Sweet citrus aroma. Taste is a little thin for me. Kind of watery. Not as bitter as I’d like, Not a bad beer though

i would say this is one of the best widely available beers. its a very good beer, but nothing really special. something standard for a party or a game. can’t go wrong.

Drank on tap most recently, but it’s decent in the bottle as well. Well balanced, somewhat light taste.

On tap, The Abbey Tavern, San Francisco. Seems pretty thin grounds for a separate rating. Glad to do it though, this is a benchmark American beer and still made at the highest standards. Golden orange, lots of hops in aroma and taste, thin mouthfeel. This beer was available everywhere on tap in the city which was nice to see, even in places where you would only expect to find macro’s (even in bottles on the boat to Alcatraz!). I thought it was even better than in the bottles, or I was just really thirsty. Either way, thumbs up.

A benchmark American Pale Ale. Nice blance between bitterness, aroma and malt. Nice hoppy and dry finish. Excellent and it’s been around for so long I tend to forget how good it is.

This is just one solid pale ale, whether bottled or on draft. Luckily, it’s available all over the place in Las Vegas, and I get this baby just about every time I get stuck in an unoriginal bar/casino.

Cask at GBBF08. Very nice grassy hop aroma. Clear copper colour, small frothy head. The flavour is also nicely hoppy, grassy and slightly caramelly with a little hop bite in the finish. 8 3 7 3 16
