Not one of the better pales I have tried here it looks more like a pilsner to me. Hardly no head at all and a very faint aroma. Could use a little more hops IMO but it is a very drinkable brew just not exceptional................CHEERS

Ok second beer from the now extict brewery..same brown 12 oz bottle.
Nice enough appearance for a golden ale..slightly hazy golden beer with a nice sized pure white head.
Very "cotton candy" like aroma..lot of sugars it appears this beer hasn't survived as well as the Amber under the harsh gorocery store lights.
..Not good medicinal sugar taste..think this is definatly a dead beer..some faint malt.
too sweet on my tongue.
Not very drinkable..but who knows it might have been a good beer at one time.

Orange in color with a small amount of white head and very highly carbonated. Very strong nutty aroma. Burnbt nut flavors present, especially in the dry finish. Did not like the aftertaste at first, but after the first sip it really grows on you and feels natural. Noted some buttery and sweet flavors hiding out. Moderate bitterness. A failry nice beer.

Dark gold color, large head. Aroma is fruity, peaches and apricots. A medium bodied Pale ale. Hoppy and slightly bitter. Some malt sweetness. Nice flavor. Good taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Although it was sort of orange in color, it was a big dissapointment after tasting there Amber Ale. This pale ale was not to my liking. To me, it lacked flavor and was to bitter for a pale ale! It just lacked what I was looking for in a pale ale!
