12 bottle poured into a New Belgium glass

A- A clear amber color with a two finger off-white head

S- Fruity/citrus hops, caramel malts, some piney hops.

Some citrus upfront, beardy malts, some caramel malts, faint grass towards the back, kind of weak in the finish, just some light bitterness.

M- Smooth, medium body.

O- Not bad, easy to drink, but I don't see myself buying this again.

Glass - Sam Adams Official

A - A coppery colored brew with lots of clarity and lots of visible carbonation. It produced a 1-2 finger head that looks pillow like, and it held decently. I got some splotchy lacing left on my glass.

S - A pretty balanced aroma of basic Pale Ale characteristics. I get leafy and lemon citrus like hop notes, with an underlying cracker, biscuit, caramel malt. About it.

T - Leafy, herbal, rind like hop flavors upfront. Soft caramel and cracker malt flavors mingle in between the hop notes. It finishes a bit dry with mild bitterness, leafy hop flavors, and a very soft biscuit malt character that begins to be unnoticeable after a while.

M - Lite-Medium bodied with medium crispness and a smooth feel.

O - I think this is a well balanced Pale Ale that I'd enjoy any day of the year. There's nothing that wowed me, but it's affordable, drinkable, and refreshing. I'd drink it again but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it. Definitely worth a try. Cheers!

glass: Sam Adams

Golden pale color, tons of bubbles, sudsy a frothy white head. no lacing. Light caramel, toast bread and lemon on the nose. Biscuit and toast bread hide underneath lemon/grapefruit rind and a piny hop profile. Medium bodied, medium-high carbonation. A basic page ale, nothing remarkable.

I have Zombie Dust expectations for all APAs, and that usually doesnt bode well.

Pour is an amber color with a steady stream of bubbles flowing from the nucleation point in the bottom of my new Belgium Globe. yes I went all matchy matchy on this one. Initial aggressive pour produced an eggshell white. It looks good.

I was expecting up front hops, but its more balanced, leaning toward the malt. Grassy hops are the dominant hop aroma, but i had to search for it.

Definitely grassy hops, but theres a hint of medicinal hops. The biggest hop flavor is earthy. Slightly sweet malt base, almost feels like a German lager. Corn syrup feeling.

Overall not a bad beer, but not world class.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass, best before May 27th, 2012. This pours a clear golden color with a large off white head which leaves a lacing. The smell is slightly of hops a little citrus and most malts, bready and caramel. The feel is medium to light. The taste is less hop forward than I was hoping, the caramel and bread malts take the centerstage with a mild ESB hop bite. Its okay for an english pale ale though.
