Lots of caramel malt character, little hops aside from light bittering. It's a touch metallic.

330ml bottle. As per usual, the beers of 'Worldwide Beverage Imports' have some confusion as to their points of origin.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium copper amber hue, with a teeming tower of puffy, frothy, and generally evocative of melted marshmallow tan head, which leaves some decent sticky webbed lacing around the glass as it quickly sinks away.

It smells of bready, sort of doughy caramel malt, stale and overripe apples, floral, leafy hops, and a touch of plastic astringency. The taste is more wan drupe fruit-influenced caramel malt, a bit of watery toffee, hints of darker fruit leanings, and leafy, weedy, and floral hops (a certain confusing perfumed character building as it warms).

The carbonation is quite understated in its near invisibility at times, the body medium-light in weight, rather thin, but ultimately smooth, I guess. It finishes off-dry, the waning bready caramel malt starting to develop a sense of isolation and loneliness.

Not the awful, skanky mess that I was anticipating, is about the best thing I can say about this - my suspicions are steeped in disappointment, I can assure you - still, this is but a plain and ineffective version of the style. Neutered hops and sluggish malt just don't cut it north (and north once again) of the border.

I had picked up four of the six beers in this series during a Veterans Day beer run to State Line Liquors in Elkton, MD and during my trip to Norfolk, VA last weekend, I stopped in at Total Wine & More and scored to other two. I LOVE the label art, I gotta say!

I used an aggro pour to get a pseudo-cascade going, which formed two fingers of fluffy, rocky, tawny head with nice retention.Color was a slightly hazy Coppery-Brown (SRM = > 13, < 17). Nose seemed awfully malty for an APA, kind of a nutty, caramel scent. Hmmm. Mouthfeel was medium. Taste had a metallic tang and a malty sweetness that were just no bueno for the style. Finish was light, semi-sweet and a real swing and a miss overall. I did get some nice sticky lacing, however, and since I really bought it for the label art and it was inexpensive, I guess that I got my money's worth. YMMV.

Was told that this beer was solid and decided to give it a try. Here goes:

A: Best thing about the beer. The color is a dark reddish-brown. The head is quite good, too. I got a massive head straight from the bottle with plenty of lacing. Good protein content.

S: OK, not too special though. Can smell a little bit of American cascade and chinook hops (this is to be expected given the style, APA). However, to my surprise, the beer's smell indicates the presence of caramel and amber malts - i.e., of the lightly-kilned variety.

T: Not bad. Presence of NW hops balanced by a very strong malt backbone. In fact, the malt actually predominates in this beer; it's more like an ESB with American hops. When you drink the beer, you're introduced to a ton of caramel, toffee and brown sugar. The hops coat the back of the palate and linger on after consumption.

M: Not bad, but not good either. Somewhat watery, but the flavor makes up for this deficiency. Lots of carbonation, which is good.

O: Good beer, but nothing to brag about. Would have it again.
