2.55/5  rDev -24.1%

Appearance - orange hazy color. No head whatsoever on this beer.

Smell - citrusy. Smells like a mix of oranges and grapefruits. Actually smells quite nice.

Taste - unfortunately it really just does not live up to the smell, or any of the other average pale ales on the market.

Mouthfeel - average

Overall - I really don't think I would drink this again, nor would I recommend it to friends

Had a pint at the Allentown location. Appeared clear gold with a short white head. You know, there's no massive hops or big kick, but this is fine example of a sessionable pale ale. The clean citrus spice has a crisp bite and stands out over the mild caramel malts. This beer leans to the hops, but the brewery calls this "West Cost style" and it fits the bill.

Pours a coppery orange hue with a medium lasting off-white head with some nice lacing. Aroma and Taste of citrus floral hops, some good citrus and fruity notes, with some biscuit malt. A good medium body, slightly dry crisp mouthfeel, with moderate carbonation. Finish is citrus floral hops, citrus fruity notes, ending is a slightly sweet dry hops flavor. Overall a good solid session brew

A: Princeton orange coloring, slight haze with a moderately paced display of micro-bubbles. The head is 1 inch, oat colored, milky-frothy in texture, with a moderately rate of retention. A low visual appeal of lacing.

S: Dry orange and pine for aroma, flowery, citrus and grapefruit. Herbaceous notes of parsely, dry celery, with a pretty good show of hops for a pale.

T: Citrusy grapefruit with dry oranges, flowery hops with some toasted sweet speciality grains. A bit of pine, spicy herbaceous note, piney-alcohol dry fade. Nice maltiness, good depth adding substance and backbone.

M: Spicy mouthful, herbaceous grapefruit, light-medium body, decent amount of carbonation presence with a dry hoppy fade of flowery pine and grapefruit.

O: Good rate of drinkability, spicy herbaceous, dry show of west coast hops and good malt support for balance. Likeable.

Poured into a pint glass, this ale has a very pale golden straw color, and a minimal amount of fizzy white head. There is some sticky lacing on the glass, but that's about all the foam this one's got. The aroma is mainly full of sharp pine and grassy hops with some bitter grapefruit as well.

The flavor follows the nose, starting with refreshing light grassy hop flavor. The grassy hops mix with a very slightly sweet carafoam malt before the more bitter grapefruit and pine hops kick in. These flavors finish it out leaving you with a lingering bitterness.

Always Sunny Pale Ale has a very light crisp body and mouthfeel, which is definitely a plus for making it a session beer. But it's not really that special of a pale ale, and for the price, you would probably be just as satisfied with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Not to mention saving yourself about $5 for a sixer.

3.18/5  rDev -5.4%

Poured from the bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a finger of off white head that fades to a ring around the edge of the glass and leaves a hint of lacing. 4.5

Smell: Bready malt with a hint of sweetness and some citrus peel hops. 3

Taste: This beer is malty up front and very bitter in the finish. The problem is that there is no real transition between the two. The citrus peel hops just blow up and crush the tongue. 3

Mouthfeel: Medium body with lots of fluffy carbonation and a dry finish. 4

Overall: Almost really good but ends up being just ok. The hops just come out of nowhere and crush everything else. 3
