Daisy Cutter Pale Ale
16 oz can into a pint glass
no born on or best before date

Thanks to BMart for sending this one over in a trade!

A: Pours a hazy dark apricot orange, with just over 3 fingers width of slightly off white colored head. Head dissipates down fairly slowly and leaves a good amount of lacing.

S: Some citrus, some pine, tons of floral hop notes. Sweet malts balance it all out, and aromas as a whole are nice and strong. Not mind blowing but right on with what I think an APA should smell like.

T: Not nearly the hop profile that I got in the aroma. Malt dominant for sure. There are some floral and piney hop notes, but that are mild and take a backseat. I also get some of the smokey malt flavors I often get in APAs. Good, but not great. I would appreciate more hop characters. This is definitely more reminiscent of a British pale IMO.

M/D: Medium body, moderate carbonation, drinkability is fair.

O: Overall, kind of disappointed in this one. Its a good beer, but personally I prefer my APA on the hoppier side of the spectrum. Im glad I was able to try it, but I dont think itd be a staple in my fridge even if it was available locally.

Poured a copper color into a snifter glass, the beer produced a nice bright white head. The head dissipated momentarily leaving lacing along the rim of the glass. On detects a good hop profile in the aroma with notes of grass and citrus fruit. The aroma allows the drinker to know immediately that this is a pale ale. On the initial taste, the smoothness of this beer strikes me the most. The carbonation is less than abrasive, allowing the smoothness to shine. In the initial taste one detects lemon, grass, orange rind, and a hint of biscuit. As the taste hades to the back of the throat, the lemon is most apparent with the other notes fading to the sides. It is a hot day, and I do find this to be an easy drinker. The taste itself does not strike me as being particularly complex. In the big picture, this is a subtle and smooth pale ale.

Thanks to Chitownbandit for the extra!

Poured from 16oz can into a Deschutes tulip.
Light oragne color. 1-1.5" white head. Has a bitter herb aroma. Daisys? Maybe I'm looking at the can too much (which is awesome). Some grassiness. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Could use a bit more carbonation. Pretty smooth going down. Leaves a touch of lingering bitterness.
