Solid but not critical perfumy, tart apple APA.
___

A: Mostly clear faded goldenrod body with a frothy, persistent, two finger off white head.

S: Buttery malt, some fruit (apricot?) a bit of dusty, zesty hops, and a small hint of an off scent, like adjunct or metal.

T: Very floral and fruity with perfumy oils, tart green apple, white grape. Hops are light and follow the nose. Malt is solid, on butter like the nose, but not completely robust.

M: Finely textured and a bit light on the carbonation. Slightly drying.

O: Very close to Anchor Humming Ale. Perhaps Anchor brews it?

EDIT: That's my picture!

This beer is a deep medium to dark orange color. The head is an off-white shade. It reaches about half a finger and has pretty good retention. Patching is dropped in reasonably good quantity.
Unlike the other two I've tried in this lineup, this beer seems like a pretty good representative of the style. Hops and malts are well-balanced, caramel and a little crust offsetting floral and grassy bitterness with a slightly sharp note to it. It's got a grainy undertone with a very mild astringency, but otherwise nothing off-putting and decently strong.
The hops are surprisingly strong given my expectations, coming to the forefront with the malts balancing but keeping it on the hoppier side. It's more herbal on the tongue with a not-quite-acidic sharpness and some lemon zest countered by a firm note of caramel and bread that leans toasty.
The body is medium, well-sustained and generally pretty fluffy off a consistent carbonation. It's got lots of crisp bite and some smoothness, too. A slight, very slight astringency is hinted at here and there but never quite cuts through.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - pale, translucent copper with a dense, bubbly, white head that has decent retention

S - citrusy and a bit soapy

T - very faint bready malt, sweet, citrusy

M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a rather simple, one-dimensional offering. It's drinkable and smooth, but boring. It's cheap so I don't disappoint the six pack to hang out with friends, but I'll definitely avoid in the future.

Another sub-par beer from World Brews. This is not as bad as the copper lager but it doesn't even compare to Bud or Natural Light for flavor. Maybe I picked up a mixed six pack that was really old, but these aren't very good.

Pours a hazy orange-amber with little that did not stick around very long. Aroma is more on the floral side, orange blossom and honey notes and a bit of fruity malt. A bit sweet for me on the palate, it almost tastes like they use candi sugar, although I am sure that is probably not the case. Not enough hops to back up the sweetness and a watery finish to boot.

Poured from a bottle into a 12 ounce snifter

A- pours a nice amber color. Little to no head.
S- slight oaky aroma
T- bitter with a smooth aftertaste
M- a little thin for a pale ale. Very drinkable but leaves something desired
O- a decent pale ale. very easy to drink, but if you are a fan of a heavier pale ale, you may be disappointed.
