look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured a finger and half of head on a hazy, dirty orange colored body.
The aroma had a nice pine smell with a touch of grapefruit. Bold.
The taste had a dull strong bitterness to it, some dryness. Muddled overall.
The texture had an unpleasant fizziness to it.
Not my favorite. The taste and texture were off.

12 oz can, no freshness date.

Pours a clear copper with a lot of suspended flakes. Nice white head that falls to a thin lace. Smells lightly malty, thin caramel and no hops. Taste is sweet caramel with some funky alcoholic notes. Finishes with a solid hop bitterness and some malty flavors linger as well. Mouthfeel is a little heavy with low carbonation.

Overall a good beer to get out of a can. Could be a little more hop aroma to really call it a pale ale.
