Poured out looking blond and a little hazy. White head, dissipates quicker than a white girl's looks after getting married. Weird herbal aroma, not in the herbal hop way, herbal in that they knocked something off the spice cabinet into this. How about some hop aroma bro? A little bit vegetal and plastic like.
Taste was very grassy, still not quite arriving at the level of being hoppy. Biscuit flavors and spice rack accoutrement all over this. Some lager like yeastiness to this. Man, this beer is all over the place. At times tastes like they blend this with a witbier. Soapy exterior in the mouthfeel.
Its got bitterness on it, but it just doesn't taste like a pale ale. Everything about it seems off for style. I wasn't picking up on a heftier malt base or any caramel notes. The herbal spicing was just weird. The lack of hops, or anything they impart flavor wise.
Had they called this a witpale, I might have found it to be above average, but as just a pale ale, its just kind of a headscratcher.

Traded gf for a single out of her six pack. Bought from Morgans Liquor store.
A&S: Semi-lively transparent copper colored beer. Head pour around a finger fades to nothing pretty fast. Specks of lacing. Aromas consist of sweet malts with somewhat of a citrus background.
T&M: Very bready, hops flavors are again citrus but not very present. Pale malty finish. Mouthfeel is pretty good; nice smooth feeling beer (around medium bodied) with a blunt carbonation.
Overall: Very average APA. not sure about the price so I can't comment on that, but I would hope this wasn't over 10$ of a sixer. This is really picky but the can were in aweful shape: spilled beer specks on the top of the can which would be a hard outside Crazy Mountain because of the plastic covering, on top of that the sides of the can and lip were super crusty. The later could be post-production, but I couldn't image the former being one.
