Best before April 2012. Poured into a pint glass.
(A) Pours a clear, darker golden color with bits of brown in the darker parts of the glass. Has a decent off white head of tightly formed bubbles that recedes to a nice layer of head-film on the top of the beer. Not as light of a color as most pale ales. Looks quite promising.
(S) There is a bit of caramel and light malt. Some honey. A bit of hops is spread throughout the aroma. Some faint citrus notes are buried beneath the aroma.
(T) Light and caramel malts play a big factor in this flavor. There is a hint of honey, orange and grapefruit the blend well to give a bit of a lighter acidic tinge to the taste. Semi-sweet but semi-bitter. Good blend of the two and nicely balanced.
(M) Crisp and well balanced. Light in body but with decent substance. Kind of oily and pretty smooth.
(O) Solid pale ale. Not as hoppy as some of the pale ales that I've had recently or what I've been used to, but it's very crisp and quite refreshing. Seems to have a bit more to the flavor profile and is a well rounded beer.

Poured a light copper, almost Amber with a thin head of light foam. Aroma was spicy with a sweet fruit note. Great carbonation helped bring out the bitterness of the hops very well and finished with a sweet caramel flavor. Very nice and refreshing.

12 oz can was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A minimal head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Toasted and slight sweet Maris Otter malt follow by herbal and slight orange citrus hops.
Taste: Chewy and crunchy bread, pale malts, herbal, and slight hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.
Overall: As for an EPA, more earthy and fruity notes would be good.
Serving type: can
