Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Nice malty and citrus aroma and taste with a caramel bread finish. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Draft @ Snowshoe. Pours a bright, brilliantly clear golden-orange color; creamy, fine-bubbled off-white head with excellent retention and lacing. Some pleasant, rounded biscuity and caramel malts in the aroma (nicely done maltiness) alongside some earthy bitterness; more of an amber than anything. Medium body; medium CO2; round, but well-attenuated. Nice, rounded biscuity and caramel maltiness, along with just enough balancing earthy/mineral bittering hops; balanced overall, and hugely drinkable. Like a winter warmer for summer in the mountains. Medium-length finish: biscuity, minerals, dry. bytemesis (8985) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 27, 2012

Flavor is the same (much fresher and more citrusy on tap). Light sweetness, light bitterness. Medium body. Oscbert (1319) - Lincoln, California, USA - MAY 17, 2009

Bottle @ J.C.G US Tasting Pt. 2. Pours hazy orange with a small lasting creamy white head and lacings. Nose is grapefruit and floral hops. Bitter floral and citrussy flavor. Medium bodied. Crisp and dry. Fine marcus (10571) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Pours light amber with a decent beige head and a pine aroma. There is a robust caramel malt flavor with with a clean bitter hop finish. Not bad, but a bit watery. bnoel09 (588) - Elk Grove, California, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Poured into a pint glass. Color is golden amber. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and resinous hops. Flavor is caramel malt at the start transitioning into hoppy flavors towards the finish. Palate is smooth with light bitterness. Overall a good pale ale. DallasPayne (2) - Carmichael, California, USA - JUN 17, 2013 does not count
Snowshoe Brewing Company has made a decent beer in Thompson Pale Ale. Good nose, strong up front with a clean finish.

Bottle. It has a wonderful hop aroma with some nut underneath. Nice looking light brown color. Medium body and long walnut skin finish. Its a little weird that it smells like an IPA and tastes like a brown ale but it’s not off putting. Its actually very enjoyable.
