2.63/5 rDev -24.2%
It is an orange-gold dark amber, darker than most pales.
Smells watery, half way decent smells like an import like stella.
This beer has a nice taste, destroyed by aftertaste of bland, stale hops, flavor lingers for a moment, doesn't do much.
mouthfeel is decent (3) but can't focus on it because of the flavor.
overall ill give it 2.75
not the best of pales, not the best of beers

3.46/5 rDev -0.3%
Undated bottle at 45 degrees into standard pint
Faint aroma of hops and malt
Head average (4 cm) creamy, light brown, slowly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing good, forming wide rings with various size bubbles
Body clear, medium amber
Flavor begins with a malty sweetness which quickly fades. No alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl
Palate medium, watery, soft carbonation
A very attractive beer leaning more to malt than hops; seems more of an amber ale.

3.91/5 rDev +12.7%
Poured from a bottle.
Appearance: Light yellow with about 1/2 finger of white head. Good retention and lacing.
Smell: Biscuit and light citrus. Maybe banana or some other faint fruit.
Taste: Very grainy and biscuit-y, with a slight hint of banana, or maybe even bubblegum? It reminds me a bit of a hefeweizen. All balanced out by some yeast and spice.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light body, crisp finish, and actually a fairly long finish.
Overall: This really doesn't drink like a Pale Ale to me; more like a Belgian ale. But, that being said, it's still pretty darn good, and seems sessionable.
