Quite pale in color with medium head. This beer just didnít do it for me. Subtle hops, subtle malt, sublte alcohol. Everything about this one was just a bit to subtle. Itís not bad, but thereís just nothing good about it. omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 26, 2003
Colored a golden yellow with a lacy white head, the Pale Ale was quite attractive in the glass. Subtle bitter aroma. Hoppy and light flavor with a bit of a zing to it. Mild bitter leave. (submitted from the restaurant via my Treo) ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JUL 22, 2003
Arrived in Sunnyvale on the 17th, and headed straight to Stoddards based on a recommendation from the kind peeps in the Ratebeer forum. This would have been my "desert" selection. This brew pours from the tap a light sparkling amber with a very thin white head. Something on the glass must have offended the lacing because it didn't show up for the party. The nose is faint citrus and spruce. The taste is mostly floral and toasty with a very british feel. Could use some dried fruit tones in the finish. The palate is medium to full, dry and lively. The finish feels chalky. jazz88 (2677) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 29, 2002
Tap. Medium golden color. Crisp malt and hop aroma. Slightly bitter and grainy. Good malt aftertaste.
