The Four C's has a little to be desired. The beer poured a slightly hazy copper with thin slightly offwhite head that is not lacing the scent carries mostly bitter hops. The taste is starts malty then finishes bitter. This beer is more English leaning. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this is ok....I would not go out and buy a six of it...but it is worth a try.

$ 1.99/12 oz bottle at Vintage Estate.
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into snifter.
Aroma of conifers and hint of grapefruit.
Head large (5.5 cm), off white, creamy, rapidly diminishing to a broken 2 mm layer.
Lacing good – many islands of various size with various size bubbles.
Body medium orange, clear.
Flavor begins with piney goodness, which ends in a citrus astringency with a moderately long hang time. No alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, oily, lively carbonation.

This is a decent pale ale with a tendency toward an IPA. The alcohol is well hidden.
