Tried this at the Federal Taphouse in Lancaster PA. Good looking beer with an outstanding smell and taste. A lot going on that makes this an Interesting ale and one to try. Would pick it up again depending upon cost, good but not good enough if cost is high.

A: Pours a crystal clear dark copper in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some orange + amber highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a medium thin patch along with a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts, fruity yeasts, and citrus/lemon rind hops. Much lighter notes of herbal hops.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste of this beer starts out with a moderate combination of pale and caramel malts with a light amount of sweetness. There are some light to moderate amounts of fruity yeast and moderate amounts of herbal and citrus/lemon rind hops. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness that fade rather quickly.
M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with slightly more than moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.
O: Very easy to drink with the lighter amount of bitterness and low ABV, this beer is sessionable. Refreshing and enjoyable, definitely one I would consider getting again with the low price point.

11.2oz bottle into a Mikkeller teku glass. The brew appears a hazed copper color with a yellowish froth of silky topping sitting atop. Unfortunately some chunks of yeast stir up when the cap is cracked and they make their way into the glass and stick in suspension. A light swirl revives a finger back to the surface and some spots of lace stick to the glass.
The aroma of this brew is almost tea-like. It reminds me of an herbal sort of ESB more than anything but with a candy sweetness to the nose almost smelling like belgian candy sugar. It is a bit leafy and grassy with a hint of sulfites as the brew warms up. Once the brew goes beyond ideal, a bit of a pissy cat quality emerges.
The flavor includes the previously mentioned tea-like astringency with an herbal flavoring that is somewhat grassy to straw-like. Some toffee malt is present to contrast but doesn't quite provide any sweetness.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall it is light and easy drinking but it has more of an ESB feel to it than anything else. Not a bad brew but also not something I would get thirsty for and want to seek out again.

Poured into a glass mug. Poured hazy red-orange with a two-finger length white head. There are a few tiny bubbles visible in the beer. Some lacing is left behind as the head dissipates. The beer has a nice citrus aroma. There's some smell of bread, toffee and floral hops. The taste follows the nose. I get the bread and toffee in the flavor. There are citrus and floral flavors from the hops. There's some back end bitterness, but it isn't very strong and it's there to provide some balance. That's what this is: a well-balanced pale ale. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The drinkability of the beer is high because it goes down smoothly. This is a very good beer.

11.2 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a hazed, deep copper body with a couple inches of faintly yellowed suds. Little smattering of lace.
Smell: Biscuit tops, slight honeyish, toffee vibe but no promising sweet-scented accents to it. Mild citrus, spice, and woodsy hop notes.
Taste: Mild-toned biscuits with a thin veneer of honey and little incorporated sweetness. Bitter orange peel, slight spiciness, and a faint woodsiness to it. Moderate bitterness. Slight citric quality alongside the bitterness in the light finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Acceptable, fair, so-so -- all adjectives you don't want coming from a five dollar pale ale.

2.85/5 rDev -20.6%
A: Amber colored liquid with some haze. Next to no head at all and very little lacings.
S: Smells of biscuit malts, honey sweet cookies and oatmeal.
T: Tastes some grapefruit. It is a bit sour and earthy with stale tones at the end.
M: Very thin body. Feels watery.
O: A disappointment. For a beer with this kind of name I expected it to have some attitude. But this one is just boring. Not worth the money.
