This is the first pale ale that I have had and I have grown accustomed to the hoppy bitterness that this style of beer brings to the table. I prefer not to drink IPA's & Pale Ales quite often because of the hoppy bitterness. It is something that I enjoy one day out of every 2 to 3 months or so. These spring/summer beers are good but they are not ranking up there with your higher echelon German hefeweizens. Oh no no no no! Cheers! B (85-89) score range

Malty overproduced swill IMO, why is this rated so high? Couldnt find any Centennial 15 packs so had to settle with this on a budget, only 1 month old but tastes way older IMO. I think that this beer sucks, as classic and old school as it may be.
