I sampled this Pale Ale even though I am still not a big fan of Pale Ales overall.Once again, another Pale Ale that I was not impressed with other than the fact that it had good lacing.I could not decide on its aroma and I definitely did not like the taste of it.In other words, I was not impressed and this one did not do anything to try and get me to like Pale Ale's any more.

Poured a copper, gold color with and off-white head that had staying power throughout the length of the pint. Aroma was heavy on citric, resiny hop notes with just a hint of malt and caramel in the background. Taste was very close to style but a little light on good malt/bitter balance. Beer seemed a little bit watered down (as most Mad Anthony beers were to me). Decent effort just not enough complex flavors to be a memorable beer.

Pours a slightly tarnished copper color. The cream colored head is thin and short-lived. Aroma is a slight hint of hops and caramel malt, but just a hint. The flavor is quite bitter and astringent, with a slightly woddy aftertaste. Also a hint of lingering citrus bitterness as well. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but not watery. Drinakbility is fair, but one was enough.

First of all the ABV as stated on the Mad Anthony web page is 5.0%. I was in Ft. Wayne and stopped by and had their sampler, so I am reviewing this on a 3oz or 4oz sample so the head was not that impressive as a result.

A: Very hazy golden yellow with not much head, but surprisingly enough what was there resulted in decent lacing.

S: Sweet and orangy, something interesting here, getting lots of citrus and some floral.

T: Bitter acidic orange peel taste, what was the IBU... seems pretty bitter, where did that sweet go.

M: Slightly watery with a good amount of fizz on the tongue.

O: This is an interesting brew, seems it would take a bit of getting used to. Bitter all the way, I get the feeling of chewing on orange peels. Not the best Mad Anthony has to offer in my opinion.

12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass.

A: Light golden in color with an over-carbonated, soap-bubly 4"+ head.

S: Smells of plastic and soap. Mild aroma of citrus hops.

T: Tastes of citrus and a bit of lemon zest. Nice hop presence. Finishes dry and with a slightly sweet maltyness. Pretty clean.

M/D: Definitely overly carbonated, leaves that bubbling feeling on your tongue. Medium-thin body.

Overall, not an APA that I would try to come back to.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle with no date markings, into a shaker pint glass.

A- A very hazy, orange-gold, with a thin white head.

S- Flowery hops and some yeast.

T- Fresh hops and yeast, some sweet malt, an off acidic taste in the end.

M- Too carbonated, like a soda, thin on the tongue.

D- I would not seek this beer out.

This brew poured a weak head of small bubbles and formed a good lacing as it receded. Its body was a cloudy dark orange. It has a medium apricot finish. Was not the best of their beers IMHO.

Pours a dark yellow, nearly golden color. The head is absolutely huge on this one, and very fizzy - it looks way over carbonated. Other than the giant fizzy head, the color is what I would expect from a pale ale.

The smell has a definite hop presence, but also is a bit soapy and sweet. The hops are floral and citrus-y with a little bit of a sweet malt aroma trying to break through in the background.

The first thing that hits the mouth is the giant amount of carbonation - woah. Next is a hint of malt sweetness that gives way to hops and a dry, woody flavor. The dryness seems to take over the majority of the flavor and into the aftertaste, taking away from both the malt and the hops.

Definitely earns the name "Ol Woody".

The beer was poured into a pub glass.

Appearance: The beer is a caramel coppery coloration. The head was a honeyed white coloration. The head quickly resolves into a ring of foam.

Smell: The beer has a very pleasing floral pine smell with a bit of citrus zest. There is a nice caramel sweetness to the beer.

Taste: The beer has a bit of bitter woodyness to the taste. There isnt alot of maltyness to the beer.

Mouthfeel/ Drinkability: The beer has a pretty thin mouthfeel. The beer has a dry finish. The beer is simply a ok beer drink. I would have liked a slightly more pronounced hop and malt combination. I will not seek this one out again.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: For some reason this beer this beer foamed over as soon as i opened it. This lead me to only get about 5 ounces of actual beer. When it finally settled down it poured a hazy dark orange with two finger of fluffy tan head.

Smell: Spices and citrus fruit. Slight hops and toffee notes

Taste: More Citrus and spices. I get some cinnamon and maybe some cloves???

Mouthfeel. hangs around for a while but not to long, pretty drinkable brew.

Overall: Pretty generic pale ale, not bad, but not outstanding.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Cloudy copperry orange with a nice thick rocky head. Good retention and lacing.

S - Mild but decent aroma. Smells a bit grainy with hints of citrus and maybe some mango.

T - Not quite what I was expecting. Very bready, lots of toasty malt flavor. Moderate to high bitterness, but not a lot of flavor from the hops. Not particularly well balanced.

M - Medium to slightly full bodied. Bigger mouthfeel than I was expecting from a pale ale, but it's mostly to do with the perceived bitterness.

D - Pretty drinkable, but doesn't leave me wanting to drink it all night.

Overall a pretty average pale ale. Glad to have tried it but wouldn't seek it out.
