Bottle shared at GRG1313’s tasting.

Bottled 2/18/13.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but nothing too exciting.

16 ounce pint - $5.00 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: A fairly clear, golden-hued body with a half-inch-high, white head. A few active bubble streams. Decent lacing.

Smell: Lightly grainy pale malts, thin herbaceousness, and a sliver of grapeskin. Ho-hum.

Taste: Pale malts with light accents of grain, basic breadiness. Lightly sweet. A quick-arriving fruitiness, though, it's still quite mild, yet having a touch of grape. Little hop character, just a whisper of leafy herbs. Clean, semi-dry finish.

Mouthfeel: A shade under medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's decent if forgettable (a bit like Dan Patrick).

Pours from the stubby bottle into a standard pint glass a clear light to medium golden with a thin quick to fade head that leaves no trace behind.Caramel malts and toasty grain the nose with not much hop presence except for a hint of herb.Flavors are alot of caramel/biscuit with mild herbal/leafy hops,this seems much more like an English pale than an American one in my opinion.It goes down pretty easy but there isn't much going on as far as complexity.En Fuego...

i like it better than others it looks like. i found it real refreshing from the tap, ice cold. its blonde and real light in body, with a decent amount of hops to it honestly. frothy in feel despite the light body, a good easy drinking brew, if a little light on flavor overall. i think the nose and taste are both a bit muted, didnt seem like a freshness issue, so maybe something to do with a dumbed down recipe. i still the the pale malt base is nice, and that the blanaced hop finish is pleasant. really not a whole lot going on here on the whole, but for a simple easy drinking craft beer, this is better than a lot of the alternatives. red hook can do better, but i dont dislilke this at all.

On-tap 3/15/2013 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark gold color, with a large foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains caramelized malts, citrus and some hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with citrus and caramel. Then a decent hops presence follows. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry but slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s a poundable beer but just mediocre overall.

Bottle date of 22 Apr 13, part of a mixed sixer. This has some tie in to the Dan Patrick Show, really haven't kept up with him since him & Oberman were last on ESPN...

Pours an effervescent gold with 2 fingers of cream colored head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Pears & hay, some perfumy & floral hops

T: Follows the nose, a bit of caramel & not much else up front. Faint toastyness as this warms, along with grassyness & pears

MF: Medium bodied slight carbonation, alright balance

Not bad,but can't get too excited about this, could do a sixer of this if pressed. A balance3d approach to APAs. Not much of Red Hook has wowed me since the mid 90s, kind of like the last time I saw Dan Patrick on ESPN...

ready for Super bowl, even though I won't be watching live most likely due to watching the kids, but this is still relevant enough. This from Seattle, and next I'll have a beer from Denver.

Bottled on Oct 23, 2013.

The short neck chugs the pour along to a light fizzy almost 1 finger head that fades semi slowly, bits of lacing, very clear honey golden colored beer.

Nose brings mild malts, a little blond malt, mild fruity aroma, hints of grassy fruity hops, mild fresh unfermented wort aroma, not much else, very light nose.

Taste starts a bit on the sweet side, fairly malty, juicy like malt and a little toasty blond malt, again mild fresh unfermented wort, hint of a straw and perhaps a toasted wheat like flavor, or maybe unmalted barley. Then hops, some grassy hops, with mild to fair bitterness. A hint of a fruity flavor from yeast I think. Finish is dry and bit more bitterness, more grassy hops, little sticky malt, hint of a metallic aftertaste.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, decent but lighter carb.

Overall meh, it's def extremely drinkable and "crushable", but lacking a lot of character, flavor, aroma, etc, pretty boring and bland. I bet it will be easy for the Colorado beer to win this matchup. If you're thinking about enjoying this beer, I'd call an audible (Peyton style "Omaha"), and go with a more flavorful beer, that is unless you're looking for something a little bit better than Coors Light.

Attractive pale amber color in the Brewery Vivant tulip. Moderate amount of foam but pleasantly sudsy in the glass and down the hatch. Thin and light bodied, but not knowing the ABV while I was drinking the stuff, I'm surprised, as it tastes maltier and more robust than 4.7%.

This is a little malty and tastes like a watered-down Pale Ale. Not that that's a bad thing, it's quite refreshing and has a paler version of the pale ale biscuity malt. Spritzy with some citrus tang. From the 22 oz bottle.

Bottled April 08 14

Pours golden with a thin white head. Minimal lacing sticks.

The smell is of mild citric (a touch of lime, and perhaps orange) and floral notes, it's a little musty.

The taste is of lemon/lime and grain. Sweetness of the grainy character is balanced by a mild floral/herbal hop bitterness in the finish.

Rather thin, water is noticeable especially in the middle. The initial fizz soon becomes more laid back.

Nothing stands out as "unique", but that's fine for what it is - an easy-to-drink, decent APA that fits the style well enough.
