(I think this should be classified as an American Pale Ale, not an English Pale Mild Ale as it is listed on this site.)

Drank from a can at the The Common Table.

The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of grass and orange citrus hops with a little bit of bread and biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same, with some juicy orange citrus notes coming from the hops. The bitterness is fairly low and the beer is well balanced. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice beer overall.

miikezombie sent this to me in our latest trade. Always great sampling new beers from new breweries. Thanks again for the trade, Glen!

Pours a brilliantly clear, medium-yellow with a thin white foam that didn't stand tall and quickly collapsed. Lacing.

Modest perfume/floral hops. Clean malt.

Flavor of a light, breaded malt. Low levels of a floral hop. Mostly clean fermentation. Dry finish with a lingering cracker malt. Modest bitterness.

Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Smooth.

This drinks like a refreshing, blonde, almost Kolsch-like. Easy going with only a modest bitterness and a pleasant cracker/bread malt profile. Would enjoy another.

12 oz can pours a crystal clear, light gold color with a small cap of white head. Not much for retention and lacing.

Nose is light and grainy with a little apple fruitiness from the yeast. Touch of biscuit and nuts creeps in as it warms.

Creamy body with grainy nuts on the flavor, packs a nice amount of flavor in here with a nice kiss of grassy and floral hops on the finish. Kind of like a cream ale with a bit more malt flavor and maybe more yeast character. I like this one, the earthiness from the malt and understated hop presence give this one a British feel to it. I still like the Pearl Snap Pils a little better than this as far as ABW offerings are concerned, but the Peacemaker ranks above the IPA for me. Tasty brew, I'll buy another sixer of this one, no doubt.

Really like Fire Eagle so I got a 6-pack of this (and a 6-pack of Fire Eagle).

A: Light golden and perfectly clear. Zero foam or lacing.

S: Very subtle breadiness with faint, grassy hops.

T: More flavor that I was expecting. Very clean flavors and nice
balance.

M: High carbonation and dry finish, but has some body in the
middle.

O: Prefer their IPA, but I could see myself drinking a lot of this over the summer.

This is by no means the most remarkable beer, but this is definitely a solid choice.

The pour shows a very clear amber with a nice pillowy top. The head doesn't hang around too long, but there is some decent legging that hangs out if you're looking for it. The aroma is malty with some hops, and the taste relates with some fresh yeastiness to it. Its a really crisp, refreshing beer, and would work really well on a hot afternoon. It has the right amount of carbonation and ingredients, and it all just feels right in your mouth.

Either I just pick up XPAs that are past their prime, or this one is just somewhat exceptional.
