Presentation: 12oz. brown bottle; "best enjoyed before" warning -- in this case Aug 03 -- notched on the bottom label's left periphery; purchased as part of a ten beer "Summer Brews" sampler pack from Cost Plus for $7.99.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy, orange-tinged gold; sudsy, one-fingered, snow-white head; not much in the way of head retention but a good c-cup's worth of lace.
Aroma: Lightly sweet, wheat malt and spciy cloves with just a hint of banana.
Taste: Decidedly like its nose; faintly sweet upfront with a wheat malt backbone; hints of cloves and bananas; mild bitterness in the finish; hints of grain, lemon and butter pervade; earthy hop flavor; slightly spicy; faint, sour twang; perkily carbonated with a slightly watery mouthfeel.
Notes: A bit disconcerted that this is classified as a pale ale; at the very least it's closer to an American style wheat ale...
