12 oz can, stamped 6/18/13, should be a best buy date.

appears a clear bright amber copper color once poured into pint glass. 1/4" off-white head. aroma is cereal grains, minimal earthy hops. taste is a good balance of slightly sweet malt and very mild herbal hop flavor. medium body, higher carbonation. appropriate for style. even for a pale ale, it could have more hops for American Pale Ale

A - Pours a fairly clear amber brown with a full inch of frothy white head.

S - Smells of grains, mild piney hops, and some sweeter malts. Nothing too exciting.

T - Quite balanced yet its just a standard pale ale with corn flakes like grains, pale malts, and a slightly hoppy finish nothing close to an IPA territory. Hopefully the pilsner will be better.

M - Light to medium easy to drink.

Overall it was cool to tick this but kind of yeasty for a pale ale.

A- Poured from the can into my pint glass with a hazy dark orange body. A nice white head forms to about two fingers in size and has a creamy texture. The foamy cap retains nicely and some good webs of spotty lace are left behind.

S- A slight bit of hops, floral and citrus notes are apparent to me at first with a balance of malts and yeast. Hints of fresh cracked grains, yeast bread, caramel and light sweets seem to replace the hop aromas with time.

T- A very balanced flavor follows a smell of a similar manner. Hops give pine, citrus and floral hints. The balance comes from notes of caramel, cracked grains, light biscuit malts, yeast bread and other fruit like apple/white grape.

MF- Creamy consistency to a lighter end body. Carbonation is smooth and has a moderate level. Only a light bitterness in the finish.

Fairly solid Pale Ale for sure. Balanced all around and flavorful.

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber orange in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation along with a bit of small particles floating in suspension. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that gradually died down, leaving some bubbles on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are moderate aromas of sweet caramel and toffee malts in the nose along with some notes of citrusy hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell except that there are also hints of pine resin hops in the finish. A light amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly chewy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems a little maltier compared to others in the style so it seems a little filling.

L- Clear copper color topped with an off white head. The head fades slowly to a cap and leaves some nice lace rings on the glass.

S- Sweet caramel and pineapple hops, but not too much else.

T- Candied pineapple and some caramel right away, toffee malt balances things out, but retains the sweet notes. Finish is dry and with a hint of hop bitterness.

F- Medium in body and well carbonated, clean at the finish and refreshing.

O- It's an OK beer, the 5.1% ABV makes it a session candidate, but the flavor profile is a little too lackluster to make me want to drink a lot of this. Would be a decent picnic or lawnmower beer.
