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.

A-Cooper/ dark orange. Slighty cloudy. Small head that sicks around. Light lacing.

S- Sweet caramel malts. Slightly toasted. Maybe a faint citrus note?

T- Sweet caramel malts and grain. There is a slight citrusy flavor in the finish. A mild touch of hops there to balance the sweetness.

M- Light to medium. Finish is dry, crisp, and fairly clean. Decently carbonated, but less than a light lager. Easy drinking for the most part, but wouldn't want it on a hot day!

*This is not wowing me, but this is not horrible. It's pretty simple, but it's a lot of different flavors. Not bad, but again, nothing to write home about.
