355ml bottle pored into pint glass 4/4/14 (from notes)

A clear amber saturated with bubbles, dense tan foam has good retention slowly falling to a thick film leaving lots of random lace

S nutty, roasty, herbal, lots of cereal very malty but it works, I even get some faint chocolate, some fruity notes but mostly malt

T mimics the smell quite well, bread and biscuit, tastes like English malt and hops, I'd never guess Citra, Amarillo, Cascade and Simcoe

M medium bodied and very creamy, some metallic notes on the finish

O not what I expected but this one grew on me as I drank it, malty for the style but it worked well for it

I thought I grabbed another hopped up pale ale but this one strays from the norm, more of a red ale to me but enjoyable beer no matter how you brand it

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: standard 330mL dark brown bottle, reasonable craft label (except it's pink!).

Appearance: heavy copper-gold in colour with moderate carbonation and a thin white head. Exceptional retention with some lacing as the head slowly sinks to a solid cap.

Aroma: citrus and pine hops with a touch of sweet malts. Not overly hopped however, which suits.

Taste: follows the nose pretty closely. Pine and citrus with some sweet malts, not much else to say. Refreshing.

Aftertaste: dry on the finish with some of the hop bitterness coming through.

Mouth feel: a well-balanced mouth feel: crisp and smooth but with a bit of bite.

Overall: pretty good beer, standard version of an American Pale Ale. Not sure it is worth the $70 a case price (2013).

A: Pours a clear dark copper color with a nice head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma of pine, fruit and bit of malt sweetness.

T: Taste of pine, citrus, fruit and a trace of malt sweetness. Nice bitterness and a dry finish.

F: Medium body, crisp, smooth and refreshing. Very well balanced.

O: Enjoyable beer that goes down easy. Nothing fancy jus a very good beer.
