44th review on BA
Bottle to Pint
I reviewed the Hefe then the pale ale after my father in law happened to get me a 24 pack on his most recent jaunt to Costco. Here try these he says. Thanks! It took me a while to get the nerve for round 2,3,4 but here goes.
App- This by far had the best color and head of the four. I was pleasantly suprised. Nice lacing as well.
Smell- Very light to the nose. Not much there.
Taste- I had high hopes for this one but it was not meant to be. Something just got lost in translation from bottle to mouth. It was a decent effort with sub par results.
Mouth- Watery and a bit of a let down
Drink- Since I only have some REALLY special things at the house. Pretty hight at the moment.

Pours a clear amber colored head with about an inch of an off white head. Doesn't seem to be a lot of carbonation going on.
Smell is a bit nutty, hints of caramel and bread as well.
Taste starts out a bit sweet, like a caramel type of sweetness. Little bit f nuttiness and bread, finishes with a bit of hop bitterness that lingers a bit.
Nothing too special about the feel, nothing bad either. Could use a little more carbonation.
Not a bad beer, not a great beer, kind of an inoffensive one that is still several cuts above mass market beers. When you consider the price, as I spent roughly 50 cents per bottle, it is actually a really good value. This would be a great beer for a party when you have people timid about craft beer, and want to give them something a bit better than the usual mass markets, and don't want to spend a lot.
