This is not the original Pale Ale as brewed in far away 1993 in the back of the Old House of Richards Building in West Marin hamlet of Forest Knolls right next to little Lagunitas. It is way better. Back then the beer tasted like broccoli and kerosene and the carbonation ate right through and drained your stomach into your gut...

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 5 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 5 | Overall: 5

    12 oz bottle. Pours clear yellow with a medium frothy white head that retains fairly well and leaves a little lacing.

    The aroma is biscuity malts and grassy, slightly metallic, hops.

    The flavor is sweet biscuity malts with a pretty big grassy hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with sharp carbonation.

    Overall, an OK pale ale with good bitterness. The biscuit malt and grassy hops aren't my thing though.

    Pours a pretty and appetizing clear amber - not much head, but that is how it got poured. Bold aroma has sweet malt and resiny hops in equal strength, almost more an IPA than a "regular" pale ale. Flavor is more hoppy than malty, scarcely bitter, with a whisper of caramel. Firm texture has a strong, persistent fizz. Will have you barking for more!

    Bottle from Q Dawg. Light orangy amber color, ample white head and lacing, good carbonation. Fresh aromas and flavors of citrus zest, very slight apricots and grapefruit, nice sweet offset, nice small linger. Very clean and flavorful. Good for warmer days. Thanks Quentin.

    When you first crack it you can already smell it, has the aroma is a very bitter IPA with big hints of orange peel. Pours a dark yellow/orange with a massive bubbly head. Flavor is very watered down and quite bitter at the same time. Also has hints of aluminum siding. Looks good, smells good, taste only gets better after a few. Bearable but sub par.

    Enjoying this one in Brooklyn. Pours a clean golden colour with a nice head that stays and gives out thick lacing. Fresh hoppy aromas. Medium-thick mouthfeel. Decent hop in the taste as well with some nice bitterness which creates some dryness. This is a pretty good pale ale that is quite refreshing, but with some kind of bite.

    355 ml bottle, from ├ślkonsortiet, Aalborg. Deep golden colour, moderate but lasting white head. Lovely hoppy aroma, notes of tropical fruits, hints of orange marmalade. The flavour is distinctly hoppy throughout, but not too bitter. Notes of grapefruit and tropical fruits up front, pine needles in the aftertaste. Very good and moreish.

    Bottled@Fonefan. Deep golden colour, not much head. Aroma is grassy and fruity hops. Flavour is quite grassy and fruity in a nice balance. Quite basic, but very enjoyable.

    A cloudy golden colored beer. A big frothy textured, white head rises above. Moderate hang time. But impressive lacing is left behind. Citrus, floral hops are in your face bold in the aroma. Full bodied, smooth on the palate. Rightly carbonated. And the taste, like the nose is more hops than anything else.

    Some pale ales are just eh to me, but I really like the style when I find a good one. This is up there with the solid APAs. It's not as malty and/or hoppy as some of the other lags, but thats assumed with pale ales. Still has a good hop bite at the end, but not as bitter as an IPA, and not as citrusy either. Clear light orange appearance, the color of their IPAs, maybe a little lighter and definitely more watery (less malt). Smooth mouthfeel because of this......6.4% decent kick too for a pale ale. I would get this again, for daytime or filler beer....but nothing super exciting here compared to all their other beers that they brew.
