Served from bottle into a Duck-Rabbit nonic. Poured a golden yellow-orange with a one finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, spice, earth hop, and dirt. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, earth hop, perfume, dirt, mushroom, and subtle spice. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. There was something a little off on this one with the flavor. The perfume aspect was quite overwhelming if I am honest. It overtook just about every aspect on this brew and really killed it for me overall. I wish this weren't the case, but you can't always get what you want.

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.
