Poured chilled, chez buzzlitebeer

A: dark copper color; filtered, with weird, huge, soapy monster bubbles; carbonation has small bubbles; little head
S: smells like a Eurostrong lager; very little hop aroma (strange for a pale ale)
T: much more of a brown ale flavor; hazelnut; bitter; not much of a pale ale; too dark a roast in the malt; brown sugar; tastes like a bitter as it warms; funky yeast comes out
M: medium-thin mouthfeel; carbonation ok

Pass.

Note, the label says >6 and <9% abv. No kidding!

Pours an amber red color with a white lacing.

Smells of coppery malts and some mild floral hops.

Biscuity malt flavor with mild dry hop bitterness.

Medium body with a tingle of carbonation on the tongue.

A pretty decent amber ale, not really pale though, but surprisingly good taste. Worth trying.

(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer pours a slightly hazy aged copper body with big bubbles racing to a thin bubbly head that fades to a white ring of foam.

S- The soft clean aroma has hints of green hops with a soft caramel malt note that comes through as the beer warms.

T- The soft green citrus notes to the hops is followed by some caramel malt sweetness in the finish and a biscuit malt flavor underneath. There is a green pith hint to the gentle hop bitterness that lingers after the finish.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz in the finish and no alcohol heat.

O- This is a nice little British Pale Ale with American hops. Good depth to the malt with some hops notes growing just a bit more pungent and bitter as the beer opens.
