It pours a golden/amber, very hazy and bright with a soft and bubbly thin layer of foam.

The smell is very mild; some light buttery tones and faint fruits. Besides a light malty sweetness and a pleasant fruitiness, there is not a whole lot going on here. It’s lacking in hop flavors and is a little too sweet for someone expecting a pale ale. I will say that it goes down easy and has a crisp and prickly carbonation.

Though it’s a little thin, Country Pale Ale has a certain je ne sais quoi to it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle with a Best By Date of 3/15/14. Part of the Box of Brews Mix 12 Pack. Pours a translucent amber color with virtually no head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is bready and grainy with some floral hop notes. The taste is bready with some light floral bitterness and some lemon. Easy to drink with not much carbonation or body. Floral finish. Overall, a pretty run of the mill Pale Ale. Not bad but not great.
