From a 355 ml bottle (best by May 26, 2013) into a globe glass.
A-This brew pours with one finger of nearly white head. The foam is dense and pillowy and sticks around for a bit. The brew itself is amber in color and mostly clear.
S-The smell is pretty mild with dry, powdery flavors, hints of white and black pepper, biscuit dough, and a light floral note.
T-The taste is similarly uninspiring with very mild pale malts, a touch of pepper spice, some chalky dry biscuit, and a mile dose of spicey, herbal hops.
F-The feel is a touch watery and lighter for the style. Carbonation is low and mild. Quaffable.
O-I was hoping for a little more from this brew. The flavors are kind of timid, especially the hops, which you would think would put on more of a show. Perhaps I am too spoiled by pale ales in the Sierra Nevada style, but even if New Belgium was going for the more subtle, Belgian style pale, they could have giving this a little more flavor firepower.
