3.43/5  rDev -0.6%

Pours a slightly hazed golden/orange with a modest white head that leaves a nice lace down the glass. The smell of evergreen, hops, and slight caramel are present. A very crisp hoppy brew with a citrusy twang with plenty of hops and a trace of pine. This simple brew has a light to medium body that finishes slightly dry and is plenty drinkable. Nothing to "Wow" about, but not bad. Cheers!

Cloudy Amber / Gold with a white foam. Settles to around 1/8 inch lace, and leaves rings around the glass as you drink it. Pine and floral hops aroma. Flavor begins with grainy taste, and becomes more hoppy. As with the nose, flavor becomes slightly piney. Carbonation is low to medium, and has a medium mouthfeel.

Not a terribly distincitve Pale Ale, but nothing to find fault with. A very easy drinking, refreshing beer.

This American pale ale has a nice clear golden color and deep floral aroma. The light, but definitely noticeable bitterness compliments a balanced malt profile and spicy/floral hop flavor. A nice medium body and light grassy finish create a soothing tasty brew.

This had a nice spicy aroma and had a consistently good aftertaste, although somewhat "white-bread" overall impression. There are more distinctive pale ales out there.

3.7/5  rDev +7.2%

Golden yellow hue w/ a bit of haze. The thin head never quits and does leave a lace down the glass. Looks like an everyday pale ale w/ a persistant head. The aroma, however, is quite enjoyable. The very pungent, assertive, grassy and floral Kent Goldings nose indicates dry hopping. As the volatile hop oils dissipate, mild bready and biscuit malt flavors emerge. Yeast esters are virtually nonexistant. Medium bodied for a pale. There's a nice balance of hop bitterness and caramel malt sweetness. Hop flavor is quite floral, but unexpectedly mild considering the pungent hop nose. Finishes with a clean hop bitterness and perhaps just a touch of butterscotch. Not a particularly complex pale, just an all around drinkable brew. The pungent Kent Goldings hop nose is the most memorable aspect of this beer.

over the course of three years my knowledge of pales as improved and this really isn't bad at all..very light...easy drinking but tasty..good juicy hoppiness...balanced thoughNice citrus hop nose..I could kick back more than a few of these easily...light golden color...pretty clear...

12-21-01 My second experience with breckenridge. This is a decent pale ale..better than Sam Adams....More flavor...hops are touted as floral on the label but I get more of an oily husky hop bite...this tastes more like I thought pale ales were supposed to taste like. Not a spectacular beer by any means but an above average pale ale.
