On tap at Red's Porch.

A. Pale amber with a bit more yellow than I'm used to in a pale ale. Thin head, minimal lace, but that aspect of a beer is always a bit suspect when you're at a bar and you don't know for sure how clean the glass is.

S. A pretty good hit of rich malt and plenty of piney hops.

T. More of the same. In fact this is one beer that's almost identical in taste and aroma. A nice touch of bitterness around the edge of the tongue and in the finish as it goes down.

M. Medium bodied with a nicely balanced carbonation.

O. A nicely made pale ale that I could easily drink all evening. The hops are not overdone and the malt comes through nicely. There's an almost English bitter-style fruitiness. I'm going to order another after this one.

A- light caramel/peach in color, similar to the core of an apple. Thin head. Carbonation was nice.
S-smelled of strong hops up front, very similar to their bucket head.
T- taste was hoppy up front, but the bitterness in the middle went a little wrong on this one, was not the great hop bitterness you look for, just a bit off. Not enough sweetness to counteract the presence of the bitterness. Nothing really bad about it, just a little out of balance.
M- medium body, simi crisp, low in abv but not very drinkable.
O- I've loved everything else thirsty planet has put out, but this was not up my alley. I can see why it did not make the regular line up, it just does not blow me away like their other offerings do.

Had this at the saucer and didn't quite know that it wasn't on the site yet!

Came with a thin one finger head that stuck around for a get minutes. Light amber in color

Smell was that of hops and malt with a lemon pepperiness that I thought was something wrong but after asking the waitress I was told it's a special ingredient that does that.

Taste is pretty solid, hop flavor is nicely rounded out with malt sweetness and the lemon pepper smell I mentioned earlier comes through in the flavor as well. Not a bad addition to something would have found pretty average otherwise

Crisp refreshing beer and quite drinkable at that. Not to heavy or high in abv but avoids being watery I kinda liked it and would get it again.

Review is off of notes from the taken at the flying saucer
