look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Looks like a macro lager, with a crystal clear golden color and a modest head; nice lacing, though

Smell: The pilsener malt dominates the aroma though there are no hops to be found; a touch of sulfur

Taste: Very husky and grainy, up front and throughout, with just a hint of residual sweetness

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Can't say I am much of a fan of this beer; not exactly sure what the brewers are shooting for but I guess it might quench a thirst on a really hot Texas day

Thanks, duff247, for the opportunity

Thanks for sharing, Bobby.

A: The beer pours a clear, light golden color with a finger of white head.

S: A nice floral hop character to it along with some mild citrus, especially citrus peel. There are some sweet malt notes as well as just a little bit of yeast and biscuit malts.

T: Biscuity malts with a nice sweet bread not to it. Some floral hops along with citrus peel and a minimal bitterness. Just a little bit of piney hop flavor to it.

M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation.

O: Not bad, but not quite as nice as the pils or the IPA.

(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.

A pretty good sized off white head settles into a decent lacing above a clear straw golden colored beer.

A subdued aroma of light grain malts and even lighter hops notes with a light yeastiness.

A light almost sour grain taste with some light bitterness from the hops sneaking in.

A light dryish aftertaste with some hops notes on this light bodied beer.

Pretty disappointed in this beer, it seems that they are trying to make a mass market lager with a craft beer price tag.

12oz can poured into a Pint glass.

A - Pours a light, clear light orange with a small white head that fades very quickly.

S - Wheat, malt, very pilsner-like.

T - Wheat, sweet corn, malts.

D - Light body, lower carbonation.

O - Light and very mild. Ok

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a clear golden/yellow color. A two finger white head rises that is well formed. Lots of spiderweb looking lace is left behind.
S: Toasted grains, crackers, bread. Musky and dank with a slight metallic twang. Not a big fan of the nose.
T: Much better here. Big toasted grains, crackers, and bread again. Grassy and herbal hops with a lingering bitterness. Simple, but very nice.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. A bit on the watery side though. Very easy and enjoyable to drink.

Simple and enjoyable. I like it. Not the big hits like Fire Eagle or Pearl Snap are, but still a well made mild pale ale. Excellent for the summer or just everyday drinking.

12oz can into an Old Engine Oil snifter. Thanks to vonschplieffen for sharing this random ass tick.

A: Clear pale amber body with a frothy, short-lived white head. Not much lace. Average.

S: Pretty boring, with nothing much beyond husky malt, yeasty minerality, and herbal hops. Ok, but not interesting in the least.

T: Follows the nose: rather lagery, malty, and cleanly hoppy on the finish. Refreshing.

M: Light and lively. Pretty good.

O: This tasted nothing like an English Pale Mild Ale, but whatever. It was drinkable and inoffensive.

Cheers!

12oz

No canning date

Thanks to lnashsig for this one.

App- A medium colored yellow that was pretty see through. A nice white 1/2 finger capped head was present and left quickly. A nice bit of cling left in the glass.

Smell- Wasn't too offensive but was pretty average. It had a little mix of pils, AAL and blonde ale with some earthy notes.

Taste- It was very mild but wasnt overly offensive. Right down the middle. A sublte mix of the three aromatics I mentioned with a earthy grassy type of flavor.

Mouth- Light medium bodied with a high carbonation level. Left a bit of malty grassy notes after.

Drink- I wanted this one for the style tick. I wouldnt have searched it out in the meantime. I can say that on a sweltering hot Texas or CA summer day this would work wonders.

Thanks to JJFoodie for the can!

Pours an adjunct-like pale yellow, totally clear. A bright white near finger of head dissipating to nothing. Aroma is grainy and cracker like, with some nutty maltiness. A bit of grassy, earthy hops. Bit more grainy and bready in the taste with a bit of finishing grassy hops. Light bodied and slick. Good easy drinkability.

Not bad, nothing spectacular though.
