Pours to a nice buff head that sticks around well. Color is golden amber. Aroma is subdued malt and piney hops with a whiff of dill. Flavor is nice, with caramel malt and balancing bitterness and a slight nutty note similar to Southern Pecan. Mouthfeel is ok. Overall, it is drinkable, but has some weird quirks. They say it is not brewed to style so I will ignore the lack of hops.

Pours light amber color in pint glass with little head and minimal lacing. Trapped at Jackson, MS airport waiting on delayed flight to Orlando.

Smell is fruity with hints of pine and malt.

Taste is sweet malts and hoppier than expected.

Mouthfeel is light bodied with average carbonation.

Overall this was better than expected.

look: 4.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The color was a nice deep amber with a good head. The lacing was minor. It had a subdued pine smell with some malt and skunk. The hop flavors were subdued and not very impressive. It finished with a good malt flavor and a lingering bitterness on the tongue. The mouthfeel was heavier than expected and good. Overall it was a balanced beer but the hop flavors were just not fresh enough. The hops should not be so subdued on an American Pale Ale.

i got this beer in my beer club this month. being a pale ale i dont expect much...but isnt that the point of a plae ale? 4 ingredients. i think this beer does what a pale ale is supposed to do, just be basic. nothing too special, but not bad... if you are lookin for a pa. this will work.

Bought a single at World Market in Round Rock for a build your own 6-er.

Poured a golden/copper color, a bit cloudy, with a 1/2 inch white head that disappears quickly. Left some spotty lacing. Not a bad looker

Getting some dull piney hops, some wheaty malt...maybe a bit of spice? Interesting.

Hmm, this almost tastes like a pale ale light...hops are very subdued. Getting kind of a tinny/metallic taste mixed in with the malt...not exactly what I was looking for in a pale ale. A bit watery on the back end as well.

Overall, not exactly the best pale ale in the world, but could easily drink on a hot summer Texas day.

This beer pours up a slightly hazy light amber with a sizeable head, good retention and plenty of lacing. Smell is citrus, grasses, malt, and biscuit. Taste is pretty good, better than I expected, similar to SNPA, but maybe slightly more bitter and a little less balanced. Mouthfeel is nice with adequate carbnation. There are better APA's but I wouldn't turn down one of these if offered again.

I poured this beer into a tulip glass. In the initial pour I had about two fingers of foam. The coloring on this beer was auburn.

There was a light smell of pine from the top of this beer. You can also get mild nuttiness from the malt.

This beer tastes like a stock English Pale Ale. It was a little unexpected. The pine in the nose falls off in the taste of the Deep South. This is a really mild beer. You do get some funkiness on this beer.

This was an easy drinker, except for the funk and some unusual bitterness at play.
