A: Clear light copper body. Nice bubbly off-white head.
S: Orange marmalade.
T: Not a whole lot of malt but it's nice and crisp. Getting a general impression of citrus and some orange marmalade. Bitter and an incy bit lager-like. Fairly dry. Towards the end it gets a bit funky, an off flavour that always reminds me of cottage cheese. Something to to with the yeast I think.
M: Not overly fizzy.
O: Nothing to write home about.

A. Aggressive poor 1 inch of golden head. Very little carbonation. Color is golden orange.
S. Hops, pine, citrus.
T. Little hops for a pale ale. Not much after at.
M. Crisp, watery, little dry.
O. This pale ale is very forgettable. It’s not bad, but there is nothing special either.
