HUGE FAN of this beer! I love the Pale Ale style ('specially the American Pale Ale). Saint Archer doesn't disappoint in this regard.

True to the style, it has a slight hops bitterness that comes across as overly refreshing. With a moderate ABV and its canned availability, this is a must-have for any / all summer outings. I stock this in my fridge for mid-week depression cure... aka my go-to beer.

Love what the skater/surfers/slackers are doing at Saint Archers!

Strong nose of hop aroma. Citrus pine off the start, just what I like in a California pale ale. Lower ABV and a drinkability with an almost IPA type flavor. Approachable and session able. Exactly how a cascade base pale should be. Subtle hints of Simcoe and Chinook add to the aroma, it must be late edition hop or dry hopped. Clean with nice lace on the glass. Could be a top pale ale offering from San Diego.

Picked up a 22oz from Whole Foods on sale! I'll take any excuse I can to try a new SD beer.

A - Pours a hazy blonde/yellow with a half inch of cream-colored foam. Lighter than you might expect, but it's a welcome difference.

S - Slight malty sweetness behind a strong pine aromas. Getting a bit of grapefruit as well. Not the strong point of this beer, normally I prefer APAs with more herbal, floral characteristics. Pleasant, but leaves me wanting more.

T - Dank, resiny hop flavor with a lingering bitterness. Lots of pine, and the grapefruit stands out considerably more in the flavor than the aroma. Slight malt backbone showcases the hops without overpowering them the slightest bit.

M - Perfect. It's crisp and refreshing, with a lighter malt backbone allowing you to focus more on the hop flavor and bitterness. Moderate to high carbonation

O - A perfect beer for the summer, not for those who are looking for a maltier kind of pale ale. If you're looking for a very hoppy beer on the lighter end, this one's for you!
