Gettin Crazy with a lil Mountain Livin Pale Ale...picked up a can at the singles selve at my local Binny's. The beer pours a clear copper with foamy slightly offwhite head that is leaving a lace. The smell has bitter citrus tones with a touch of bread. The taste has a good initial balance with sweet malt countering a nice citrus....the end turn more of a bitter citrus. The mouthfeel is medium in boday with good carbonation. Overall its a decent pale ale.

12 oz can poured into a SA Perfect Pint glass.

A - good color. Kind of a sunsety goldenrod body with a white head. Good lacing.

N - peach flavors and some fruity hop notes followed by a little toasty malt.

T - not unlike the nose but a little... flatter maybe. The taste isn't that exciting but it is good.

M - fair body. Again it comes off a little unexciting.

O - very dede t pale ale offering. Would drink again.

Cheers!

3.74/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Aroma: Low to moderate pear and lemon hop aromatics up front. There is a bready malt base in the background but the hop aromatics are forward.

Appearance: Hazy amber pour with a moderate white head. Head retention is good and leaves nice lacing on the glass.

Flavor: Nice tangerine, lemon, and peach hop flavors with firm hop bitterness. There is a subtle caramel malt base providing a nice foundation but the hop flavors and bitterness are assertive. Balance is to the hop bitterness. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste lingers with a powdery hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. No oiliness, astringency, or heat.

Overall impression: A hoppy American Pale Ale. Not sure why it hasn't gotten more love here. I found it to be easily quaff-able and enjoyable on a hot summer day.

12oz can

A) Pours with a finger thick head, slowly settles leaving a sticky lacing along the side of the glass. Slightly hazy bronze colored body. Sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Citrus aroma. Slightly piney.
T) Hop bite is overbearing for a pale ale. The subtle malt helps to bring some semblance of balance. Piney.
M) Fizzy. Medium body on the lighter side. Chalky finish.
O) An OK pale ale.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

The colour is gold with a tint of brown (not very “Pale”) (15 EBC). The finger thick off-white head sinks quite quickly leaving lots of lacing on the glass.

The smell is harsh and bitter with distinct notes of bullion and cabbage. Clean sweetness and hints of bread.

The taste is somewhat bitter with dusty notes of caramel malt and (DMS) vegetables. It is overall thin with metallic bitter flavours. Thin body. The aftertaste is mild with notes of beef stock and bitter herbs. The finish is short with hints of wheat flour.

The carbonation is mild with few long-lived mid-sized bubbles; the liquid is smooth.

A very tired and unbalanced APA (the Swedish best before-date is 2015-01-14, I have no idea of when it is brewed).

Love me some craft beer in cans.No date.

Pours a decent looking fluffy head but small 1/4 finger sized, fades semi slowly at least, retains well, decent lacing as well, very hazy slight sediment laden orange nectar color.

Nose brings some sweet malts, grainy toasty malts, not quite caramel but a sweet candy like note to it, into mild earthy hops, some herbal notes, little tea, touch of pine and forest floor, a little orange zest as well, smells fairly decent but also seems like it might be a little old unfortunately.

Taste brings some sweet malts again, candy like flavors but not caramel, biscuit and toasty grain, little straw, nice straight up malty flavor which is nice if you like malts. Then mild hops, quite mild from what I expected, some grassy notes, earthy, little herbal note, very faint citrusy note, but mostly grassy earthy flavors with a sweet candy like toasty grainy malt backbone. Finish is dry but a little sticky and sweet notes, more grainy malts, some grassy hops, and a little bitterness finally, mild pine and spicy hop note as well.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb, mild gritty feel.

Overall OK, I do like the malts but not quite on level for what I expeccted, hops are way behind where they should be in every aspect, but still fairly tasty and drinkable.
