Thanks Moll. Beer served in a Lawson's tulip, thanks Paul. Beer is amber / dark amber with a thin head of small bubbles, low retention, low carbonation, low lacing.

Aroma is a little buttery, a little hoppy.

Beer is nice in the weight but overall a bit disappointing. Hops are light, malt is higher than I expected. Moving on.

22 oz gold foil topped bottle. Served in a Lawson's snifter.

Pours a clear copper amber with a finger of dense creamy head. Doughy and caramel malt nose with piney and earthy hops. Doughy body, German malt, light caramel sweetness and resiny and pine bitter finish. Medium creamy body with strong carbonation and a sticky dank finish. Tastes like an aggressively hopped ESB. Not bad, but would pass on again.

22oz bottle poured into a Lawson's snifter. Bottle courtesy of Jared - thanks for picking this up for me!

A - Pours an extremely clear medium amber color with a tightly bubbled thick finger of creamy colored head that shows good staying power...head slowly fades to the surface and leaves lots of foamy lacing on the glass. Good looking pale ale!

S - Really nice hop aroma here...loaded with citrus and pine - smooth and a bit herbal. Hop aroma is so even and balanced - potent but not overpowering. Balance of lightly sugary sweet aromas and touches of grain beneath the hop layer.

T - Sharp hoppy bitterness up front - herbal, earthy and a bit medicinal. Toasted and bready malt flavors catch up with the hops and smooth things out but recede in the finish to leave behind the medicinal bitterness into the finish and beyond. Mild sugary sweetness in middle with well placed citrus and pine hoppiness.

M - Medium bodied with a lowish mid-level carbonation that is rather creamy and lacking of any assertiveness or tingle on the tongue. Thickly hoppy with plenty of hop bitterness and a strong resiny feel and taste throughout, especially in the finish with a long lingering bitterness after the swallow.

O - Another fine offering from Lawson's. I always enjoy finding full flavored beers that check in under 5% ABV. At 4.9%, this just makes that threshold, but is quite sessionable from an alcohol presence standpoint. The resiny and medicinal bitterness reduce the drinkability for me...this isn't a smooth pale ale. It takes a bit of work, but the effort does pay off. Doesn't go down as easy as I'd like, but it does invite you to savor each sip rather than quaff it quickly. I'd prefer a bit less sharpness to the hop flavors, but I think I'd still come back to this again if another bottle presents itself to me.
