12 oz bottle poured into a GD pint glass
A - pours really well. Minimal head, decent lacing, colors of gold, very very subtle hint of haze, about 99% transparent
S - smells of citrus and pine. pretty generic for a PA, hints of sweetness
T - terrific. great flavors of honey and lime juice, with a hint of lemon zest. balanced bitterness, really substantial flavor. Very happy with how this turned out.
M - nothing to write home about
O - bought 1 in a make your own 6 pack, and I'm glad I did. Worth it.

a way underrated pale ale. pours clear but thick, polleny honey colored with an average white head. the nose is a balanced beer, caramunich malt smell, and west coast hops. the flavor is more hoppy than the nose, with plenty of fruity esters as well. a floral hop profile and a touch of orange. mouthfeel is good, maybe a little heavy in the summer, but this is mid october and its full body is just right. good carbonation keeps it moving, and this is an easy sixpack. one of the better main line beers from santa fe.

love this pale ale, full of character, aroma and color. with hints of fruit and hops in the nose. flavors of malt sweetness, nutty spiciness, and floral hops to balance it all out on the finish. i really dont see how you can go wrong with a Santa Fe Pale Ale. cheers!

Appearance: Pale yellow ale with good carbonation and a great head. Lacing is also pretty good. A solid-looking ale.
Smell: Some nice sweetness of honey with a solid dry malt background.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Honey and melon sweetness with nice dryness. Similar to smell. A wish it were a bit bolder. Fairly decent mouthfeel, but maybe a bit thin.
Overall Drinkability: A good western ale.

Santa Fe Pale Ale: I have been taste testing a selection of high end Imperial Stouts & IPA’s, so a change of pace to something more “normal” was good. I was not expecting much out of the Santa Fe Pale Ale, and was pleasantly surprised. First off, it’s not pale, but a dark honey in color with very little carbonation. A generous head of high quality forms on top, and this brew delivers a big aroma for a pale ale. The mellow malt goodness is augmented with just the right amount of fruity hops. Notes of apricot are distinct. Very good beer that I enjoyed greatly. Recommended.
