1.05/5  rDev -70.8%
look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Worst beer I have ever tasted. The head was huge and foamy with loose compaction.

Smell of the beer was metallic. Much like copper.

The taste was off-putting and almost putrid.

I just don't get it. There is no way that this is their regular pale ale. It must be a bad batch.

I tried three different bottles and they were all the same

I know Duclaw can do better than this.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA

Copper color, clearish, with a thin white head that retained as a ringlet and left a few spots of lacing on the glass. Nose was distant and muted, traces of bready malts, toasted grains. Utter blandness on the palate, almost no flavor at all here. Toasted grains, rice cakes, vaguely floral hops. Light-medium body, definitely easy to drink as far as mouthfeel goes, but without the taste to back it up, there's really no point. Not recommended.

2.73/5  rDev -24.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Amber body, good clarity, numerous carbonation streams, small level off-white head. No lace.

Aroma heavy on pine, with some citrus and biscuit notes.

Very sweet caramelly beginning. Some fruitiness. A bitter nap at the swallow. Still the opening sweetness never completely yields and overall the beer is unbalanced toward the sweet side, not ideal for a pale ale.

Medium mouthfeel, a bit still.

A bit of a disappointment, it fails to live up to its name in more ways than one.

was excited to try this beer but as soon as i opened it got a blast of a non-appetizing smell, idk maybe i had a bad batch.it was drinkable but i thought that it wasnt hopped as well as i personally like it a friend of mine who also tried it felt the same way. i personally wouldn't recomened this beer but dont get me wrong duclaw has some awsome beers.
