Thanks to miamiacheal for this extra I was glad to try it.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Darkness tulip 2/24/11

Pours a nice golden amber color with little about 30% lacing left after a white headed foam of 1 finger dissipated after about 3 minutes.

Smell is almost nonexistent. A little malt but for the most part no nose.

Taste is weak as well very little hops and malts don't do it for me in this beer. Nothing really good about the taste.

Mouthfeel is light and tastes don't stay around at all.

Drinkability is low or moderate. I would probably have no problems pounding these back next time I am in Florida as a replacement to get blitzed on from BMC but other then that I won't revisit this brew.

3.4/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Solid gold with excellent suspended yeast in the midst of the carbonation.

Smell: Sweet honey and wet hay.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Malted biscuit and a slightly watery/slick finish. Very tame, but rather refreshing for an ale.

Overall Drinkability: A refreshing if not great ale.

Somehow ended up with a bottle of this from a BOTMC delivery. Have drunk gallons of this in the keys, imagine that I have never reviewed it until now. Bueno, lets give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a sweet hoppiness with an apparent big malt base. Pours into my recently rediscovered sam's perfect pint as a cloudy bright yellow with a clingy foamy off white macro-bubble head. Taste is floral off the bat then a malt base is smoothly bitter, all transitioning to a sweet and sour finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Not your pale ales experts brew but the taste brings me back to the keys, and that ups the overall, considerably.
