look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75
Tasted 20 March 2013.
Pours a medium orange-amber. Clear, one finger of off-white head. Good retention, nice lacing. A nice wide, slow stream of bubbles rising up. Solid.
Smell is toasty, biscuity, with an herbal sense in the background. Smells a little of toasted coconut. It's balanced, and just fine.
Taste is, similarly, fine. Maybe a little less fine than the smell. Balanced in a way, but more two-humped. Starts with toasted malts, like bread almost done baking. On comes a moderately unpleasant bitterness, herby/medicinal. That taste persists, dragging my enjoyment of the beer down every second that it's still in my mouth. After a big gulp, it almost makes me shudder.
Feel is good. Medium-bodied, with small-medium bubble carbonation stirring the pot. Lasting, more than I want it to be, given the flavors that the persist.
A decent pale ale with a mean streak. That bitter wave in the flavor really pulls everything else down for me, though some hop-heads might dig it it. A bit less hop acids, and I'd probably like this a whole lot better.

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.
