Nate (4263) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2008
Large draught at the Atlanta airport location in Terminal B. Mild grassy hoppy aroma, fresh. Light sweet malt smell, too. Coppery-amber crystal clear, with thin off-white head. Medium watery body with medium-high carbonation. Starts rather dry, with good hop presence, fresh and grassy. Bitter hangs in tight for a while, counteracting what caramel sweetness exists, then plays out at the finish. Leaves you with a muted nutty bitter-sweet finish and after.

12 oz bottle from ucusty, thanks Dave. Pours an orangey amber with a small to average fluffy white head. Aroma doesnt really have the hop prescence that I was looking for. Mostly a sweet malt thinkg going on here. Palate is on the watery side with average stingy carbonation. Flavor is very similar that has some initial sweetness but is a little on the weak side and finishes only with a tad bit of bitterness. Not really what makes this an "extra" pale ale, "extra" average beer seems more accurate.

The king of Atlanta brews. Ive enjoyed this beer while living in the Atlanta metro, with its sweet, lightly syrupy notes and muted aftertaste. "Not with a bang but a whimper" -T. S. Eliot

emarkd (100) - Georgia, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Pours a nice orangy-yellow with a pale head. Citrusy and hoppy aroma with a nice clean pale ale taste. Just a touch of lingering bitterness. Overall, a very nice pale ale from a local brewery.

naivepegasus (367) - USA - MAR 29, 2008
Pours orange yellow with a little bit of white head. Slight citrus to the odor. Its got the crisp taste of most pale ales, but with a nice citrus hop aftertaste. One of the better American Pales Ive had.

At the brewery. Straight up pale ale. Crisp. Clean. Nicely done. While not exciting, not bad at all. Drinkable.

Poured yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus. Pretty good hop presence in this one. Light and watery finish. Good session brew.

Bottle from BeastieFan2k (aka Peter Parker aka Spiderman aka Webslinger aka That Russian Jew). Not that pale, if you ask me. Certainly not Extra Pale. More like a light auburn, or a dirty gold. Foam is fleeting, sitting only lightly upon the top of the beer, like spit in an ocean. Light does pass through, but minorly so. Through the bottom of the glass this appears as honey, yet leaves no legs with vigorous swirling. MaLtY oUt.
