3.86/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. No freshness date.

A- Pours a dark reddish amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before shrinking to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a solid ring behind.

S- Smells almost like a red ale the way the hops play off the malt. Sweet cereal grain malt with a dash of hop fume.

T- The flavor is also more toward a red ale profile as the malt weighs in with the bready characteristics but not so much that it gets in the way of the subtle yet solidly present hop bitterness. The only thing I don't like is the watery aftertaste but there's enough sweet/bitter duality here to keep my interest.

M- Quenching and somewhat slick with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Not something I would drink all the time but certainly serviceable if it happened to be the only option.

2.58/5  rDev -30.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

12 oz bottle into a goblet.

A: Pours a clear copper color. The head is a finger high, with a white shade, maybe a hair off-white. Retention isn't amazing, and only a tiny ring of lacing is left on the glass.

S: Smells like a one-trick pony. The problem is, that one trick is caramel maltiness - urgh. Almost no citrus or tropical fruits, and very little pine, just toffee-laden, slightly nutty malts. While the maltiness is pulled off nicely enough, this just comes off like an amber instead of a pale. And that's not what I want.

T: Yep, the dominant flavor is caramel. Caramel, with lesser hints of toffee, marzipan, and a little nuttiness. Hops? Not here. No bitterness, no citrusy or piny flavors, no nothing. It's still within the best-by date, so it's fair game as far as I'm concerned. Frankly, this is a boring drink.

M: Well, it is relatively crisp - if nothing else, it makes the maltiness seem less imbalanced. That, and it's very well carbonated. In fact, the fizz bites the tongue firmly. I think I'll gladly take a slightly harsh fizz over an oppressively malty pale ale (which this would have been if not for the former).

O: Go into this expecting an amber and you might like it more. Since I expected - and wanted - a pale ale, I'm not really a fan. This is just a textbook pale ale that's completely 'safe' and 'mediocre', and it will not be a repeat purchase from yours truly.
