Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

We kept this one simple, used water, malt, hops, yeast, and made it the kind of beer that will help you, when your (real or imaginary) people are tired, thirsty, hungry, enslaved, to step forward and state with authority: Let my people go!

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a hand glass.

A: Dark amber hue. Pours a 2 finger, tight, foamy, white head. Very persistent. Thick beer ring lacing.

S: Light floral hops. Not much else.

T: Light hops, and a little Italian spice.

M: Light and crisp. Steely finish.

D: Session.

Atmosphere is nice. Large, persistent head, and thick beer ring lacing. Nose is hoppy and floral. Light hop bitterness and a little bit of a spicy character. Overall, this is decent quaff.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass. Label reads “Bottled 9/2012”.

A: The beer is a cloudy amber color, with a short dense off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains light caramelized malts, a good amount of hops, some honey and some citrus.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty but not too heavy malt character followed by some sweetness from flavors of caramel, honey and some citrus. The hops presence is decent for the style and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, it’s a decent beer but there are better options in the style.

22 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Bullock's Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.

The little white box on the label where I would expect a bottle date is left blank.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazed, amber-gold body with a tallish, lightly yellow head. Adequate lacework.

Smell: Spicy, sweetish, fruity, lightly earthy nose. Toasted onion rolls, cooked orchard fruits dosed with spices and sugars. A bit different.

Taste: Toasty pale malts, with touches of biscuit and bread crust. Moderate light brown sugar sweetness. Apricot and apple fruitiness. Spicy hops, lightly earthy, with some herbal tones with an edge of mint leaf. The toastiness, the brown sugar qualities never quite drop out, leaving a bittersweet, soft finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-level, gentle carbonation.

Overall: It's good, albeit not your run-of-the-mill pale ale, so, I can see many people not quite digging it..

deep amber pour with a finger of off-white colored head, some lacing left behind. smells very tropical - mango, pineapple, peaches with almost a belgian style yeast scent. the flavor is definitely not right. tastes like pee, with some flower petals.. bready. medium body, moderate carbonation.

after doing some research and seeing the date on the label i bought, not only is this beer retired, it was bottled almost a year ago. year old pale ale isn't going to taste as it did fresh, and it doesn't seem like it helped improve any qualities.
