Into a pint glass:
A: brown/golden colored body that yielded a soft fizzy white one finger head that died within twenty seconds. No lacing was left and no carbonation was seen rising.
S: dominated by the hops with a slight grapefruit in the background. Some malts came out as the beer warmed.
T: centered around a balance of hops and malts.
M: medium, dry yet yielded a slightly creamy and wet aftertaste and finish. This was mostly drinkable.
O: the first time I had this I really liked it, but now that I came back to it, hmmm..., just average, that's all

This is a well balanced pale ale provided by Roscoe's but the taste potential is limited.
Appearance: It pours a pale golden color with a sudsy off-white head and tiny bubbles through out.
Smell: faint with a light hop grapefruitiness and a little floweriness.
Tsate: fleeting grapefruit with malt on the other side of the teeter totter keeping it level and a dry finish.
This brew has potential but the lightness of everything distracts from the flaovrs hiding in there.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, orange-gold coloring with lots of carbonation aand a frothy, clingy, bright white head. Aromas of biscuit, toffee, and floral hops. Flavors are smooth, with a toffee backbone and peppery hops at the end to cleanse the palate. Tangy sweet and slightly bitter into the aftertaste, with a thin, slightly crisp finish. Easy to drink, but there isn't much to it, either.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: Very light brown. Thin white head with no lacing on the glass.
Smell: Very off putting skunked smell.
Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light to medium bodied. Taste of bitter hoos and pine notes.
Overall. Excellent appearance, skunkes smell(it was fresh) was very off putting, but the taste was ok. Probably would not buy this one again.

This beer was disappointing in almost every respect.
Smelled zero hops or aromatics, just some malts.
Taste was wheaty, with almost no hop flavor.
Mouthfeel was ok.
This beer was jus bland, boring and entirely forgettable.
I don't mean to be too negative, but this was just way below the standards any brewer would expect for a pale ale.

Picked up a six pack of this at the local grocery store and wish I hadn't. Serves me right for cheaping out...
Appearance - Light amberish. Fuzzy head dies down quick to almost nothing.
Smell - Very light scent. Hops, and not much of it, is about all I can smell.
Taste - Like a flavorful Bud. Vaguest of citrus notes.
Mouthfeel - Carbonation and a slightly unpleasant sticky film.
Overall - Disappointing for craft beer, but good for someone looking to take a baby step up from Coors, Corona, etc.
