12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Barely any head was that reduced to nothing. It is a copper color with good clarity of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Slight citrus, herbal, and grassy hops with some toasted, caramel, and pale malts in the rear.

Taste: Same as above, but nothing sstick out and some lingering bitterness in the rear too.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, medium carbonation,

Overall: Slightly above average pale ale. More hop characteristics would have been nice based on what the label says.

$ 1.89/12 oz bottle at Wegmens in Jamestown, NY
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into imperial pint
Very faint malty aroma
Head large (6 cm), off white, creamy, rapidly diminishing to an irregular layer which lasts the duration of the beer.
Lacing spotty – rings of irregular islands of various size bubbles
Body coppery, hazy
Flavor of light malt and a hint of lemon
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation

This is a good example of an amber/red ale which meets the style characteristics quite well. The malt is not overly sweet or cloying but just right. I’m not a fan of this style, but this is one I could drink all day.
