3.3/5 rDev -10.6%
12oz can poured into a Pint Glass. Many thanks to THECPJ!
A - Pours a clear dark amber with a soapy ivory head that recedes to a spotty haze and thick ring.
S - Sweet caramel malt profile with some grassy, herbal hops. Plain-Jane, but nice nonetheless.
T - Follows the nose closely, the caramel malt has a bit of a toasted quality to it and the hops are herbal and slightly spicy. Moderately bitter finish.
M - Crisp and smooth, with a medium body and decent carbonation.
O - A decent APA, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.

Draft at North Star on 5/20/11.
Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with a one finger frothy white head that slowly fades into a thin lasting ring. Streaks of spay lacing left behind.
Earthy aroma with lots of piny hops and citrus along with a caramel malt presence. More hop forward in the nose than expected with hints of pine needle, pineapple, grapefruit and orange peel. Looks and smells pretty good.
Medium bodied but lighter than expected and less hoppy than the aroma suggests. Subtle crisp hop bite up front with earthy pine and very faint citrus but I was really let down at how weak the hops were given the nose. Slight lactic creaminess and a prominent malt backbone.
Overall this beer wasn't bad. It looked and smelled pretty nice but the flavor was a bit of a let down. Quaffable and refreshing in this warm weather but sort of bland.

A - once inch head - creamy and foamy looking, yellow golden hue
S - not much here, hops, some sweetness, fruitiness, bread, yeast, all very mild
T - some hops, some malt and barley, hints of fruit sweetness, not too much taste here over, just a pale ale with mild hops
M - crisp, light bubbly
O - I find this beer to be very mediocre. The hops have slight bitterness. It is not bad but it is not something that jumps out to me. The hops have some sweetness, but hard to really detect, brief tastes of malt and barley. Again, very light and mild. Would be an okay summer beer, but not something I find myself coming back to,

Found this at Dewey Beach Liquors while visiting Coastal Delaware.
Look: The color was a fairly clear copper. Head was a frothy white foam at about 1-finger. Lacing was transparent but present.
Smell: Crisp and light herbal aroma. Very clean nose with some sweet malts and grassy hops.
Taste: Sweet malts started things off with some faint grassy pine in the middle. The finish was rather dry and had hints of wet grass and lingering hops.
This Pale Ale was very basic with high drinkability. A high level of quality was noticeable in the brew. I wouldn't put this one above SN Pale Ale, but it certainly is a close second.

Pours a one finger tan head that settles quickly to nealy a layer over a cloudy copper (brown linged) liquid. Smells orange rind, red apple, tangerine.
Tastes american hops of woody character. Some esters of light fruits (pear syrup from a can and fresh apricot. Malt sweet is below hop bitter and dry. Bitter is wrong term, perhaps, more grassy weedy than alpha-acid bitter. Not quite co-humulone either. Metallic copper as a side-note. Md-thick, which is heavier than the style dictates. Thick helped with the limited swwet and to cut into the grassy of the hops. Okay drinkability. Average. Not a lawn-mower beer, but not winter ponderful either.
