12oz single bottle - not quite getting the name here - is it that you can actually hear this beer - oh, I see, it's brewed in collaboration with a heretofore unknown to me American sportscaster.

This beer pours a clear, pale golden amber hue, with two fingers of puffy, caked, and somewhat bubbly off-white head, which leaves some streaky hovering island mass lace around the glass as it slowly recedes.

It smells of bready, doughy pale malt, a lesser biscuity caramel sweetness, muddled kitchen table citrus notes, a mildly dank pine resin acerbity, some tame hard water flintiness, and further leafy, floral hops. The taste is grainy, bready pale malt, dry toffee biscuits, pithy grapefruit and orange, dead yeast, and mealy herbal, leafy hops.

The carbonation is fairly low-key, and plain in its amateur frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and kind of clammy via a certain work-a-day smoothness. It finishes off-dry, the lingering pale and ethereal caramel malts having little truck with the bland west-coast aspirant hops.

An easy enough to drink, but a bit harder to actually recommend APA, the lack of pep and/or verve not doing it or me any favours. If I had to make a last-second call on this one, in the spirit of the marketing, I'd have to say, take a knee and run out the clock, son.

Decent color and clarity, but with some fun little flecks. I'm always amazed at how unpale pale ales tend to be. Noteworthy is the presence of grapefruit-like aroma when first poured (into English style pint glass). This quickly wore off and gave way to maltiness with perhaps faint citrus, and wasn't detectable on my palate beyond what I might ordinarily expect from just about any hoppy ale. Something someone who wasn't an extreme or even moderate hophead could easily take a shine to. A slightly watery mouthfeel compared to certain other pales I've had, but not disheartening. I was in the mood for something with medium/low alcohol content and this fit the bill.

Great all around. An 'every day' beer you won't tire of.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very weak, just a touch of malts. Taste is also very light, malts, a slight bit of hops, nothing offensive, just not much there. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

This should be a 5 just for what it is - a beer to chug while watching the game, and it won't knock you out half way through. It's actually not bad at all.
