Poured into a Florida Beer Co. tapered glass. Bottom of can says PKGD 051114
A- Pours a dark amber color with a 3/4 inch bubbly, bumpy head that retains decently before popping away to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Non-resilient lacing leaves small clots behind.
S- Bready aroma with some faint hops and a twinge of alcohol.
T- Hop presence is more noticeable in the flavor as the grainy malt comes first and then the bitterness slides across the palate with just the right amount of slight citrus to complement the breadiness of the malt. In a word, balanced. Alcohol barely noticeable.
M- A bit tingly from the hops with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.
O- A classic - or should I say the classic - pale ale with such high drinkability as well as great flavor.
Serving type: can
