Thanks to drewsy for the trade!
A- Pours a nectar like hazed coppery brown color, with tinges of red lingering in the background. The head is excellent, forming a three inch thick meringue like top that is eggshell in color, and retains superbly, only losing perhaps an inch of the original puff. From what I can see, there appears to be much fine carbonation, and the lacing looks to be excellent as well, leaving behind thick lines of soapy film! A very fine looking brew!
S- There is a very pleasant mixture of sweet malt and bittering hops present in the aroma. It is slightly citrus like, with some piney notes as well, but as time passes, I find everything to become more faint.
T- This is a very nice tasting brew....if only a little muted overall. There is definitely a bitter hop character, which I find to be of fresh hop leafs. There is a nice balance of 100% all malt sweetness, and due to the yeast, I also find this to have a bread and/or biscuit like flavor that provides a richness I suppose. The hops leave a bittering aftertaste on my palate that lingers, but doesn't offend.
M- I find this to be a solid medium-full bodied brew and the mild carbonation allows this to have a creamy mouthfeel. It finishes smooth as well, really allowing the hops to shine in this one. I think its a wonderfully nice feeling beer on my palate!
O- I find this to be highly drinkable....the alcohol is hidden well, its flavorful, even though I would like it to be slightly more upfront, and its very smooth and easygoing! I would have no problems enjoying more than one of these during a sitting! I highly recommend and feel it's deserving of it's high marks.

Served in a snifter
A - It is a deep amber color bordering on copper. It is topped with two inches of beige head.
S - I smell some light fruity and floral hops. There is a caramel malt backbone with a dank smell of a red ale.
T - The taste is a nice balance between malt and hops. The hop taste is similar to the smell, light fruit and floral. The malt has some deep grain flavors. It is earthy.
M - Medium
O - It's been a long time since I have had this beer. It is a decent pale ale. It is not something I would drink regularly. It does not stand out as some others do. I would almost call it am amber ale based on appearance.
