Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Label says Bottled On MAR 28 2014

A- Pours a dark amber color with a 1/2 inch light tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Sweet, toasty malt nose with hints of hops in the back.

T- Very malty pale ale with lots of bready notes and a moderate sweetness. The hops provide just enough mild bitterness to balance things out.

M- The thin coating of malt syrup complements the restrained hop bite. Medium carbonation and a fullish body.

O- Definitely more in the vein of the English Pale because of the dominating malt presence which is fine if you're in the mood for that.

A great bitter beer without being over the top bitter. The hops almost feel as if they jump around while you're drinking. There's a slightly sweet start with that aforementioned bitter finish that I personally look forward to when I go for another swig. Not sure how it is in the bottle but I'd definitely have this beer again.

Poured from a bottle with a bottled on date of 2/25/14; into a tumbler.
Appearance - a dark gold with limited carbonation and a thin, foamy white head. Lacing is decent.
Smell - doughy malts and some faint citrus.
Taste - very well balanced pale with a strong malt profile and some sweet and bitter hops.
Feel - a bit light, but a flavorful ale with some balance.
Overall - a nice pale that should appease pale fans.
