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.

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

A: single finger was with nice lacing and decent head retention on a murky orange and gold body.

S: light on the nose with mostly yeasty and orange peel notes.

T: more yeasty than I am used too in my pale ales. Buttering hops dominate the finish the orange and malts on the front end.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: it isn't a bad beer per say but a isn't a good pale ale. Fairly yeasty but it like the other beers here tend to grow on you.

This was a welcome relief after sampling PR’s main stream light lager all week!
Poured into a pint glass, the beer was bronze with a clingy off-white head.

The aroma was of citrus, malts and some fruit notes.

The beer is nicely bitter with a solid malt backbone. There are some mild grapefruit and more fruit. It is balanced and easy drinking. The mouth is a tad oily with low carbonation.

Served in a Sam Adams sensory pint glass.

Thanks to VDubb86 (and his awesome girlfriend) for sharing this bottle!

Seeing that I'll probably never make my way to San Juan, I'm gonna consider myself lucky that those around me are willing to share in some Caribbean bounty. This bit pours a hazy sunset amber topped by more than a finger of light cream froth. The nose comprises caramel wrapped in a tight tortilla of cilantro and orange peel. Yeah. The taste changes things up a bit, with a more sharply bitter bit of orange peel, some light pine, and a strong backup contingent of caramel. The body borders both heavy light and light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a pretty dry finish. Overall, a pretty nice little pale ale, something I could easily see enjoying if ever I make it down to the Rico.
