12 ounce can -> Dogfish Head snifter

A - pours up a mostly clear deep gold/light amber with a creamy three inch head, good retention, and good lacing.

S - grass, bread, pine, citrus

T - The first flavor notes was the sweetness of the malt, sort of an apply sweetness, sweet but with a slight tang to it. There is also a metallic note lingering somewhere in the middle with a distinct pine flavored bitterness on the finish.

M - loaded with carbonation with a prickly feel not unlike what a fresh Coco-Cola feels like, lots of little miniature bee stings inside of the mouth. Texture is thicker than expected.

O - This is a pretty good little pale ale. If the metallic taste that is running loose would just go away, I'd rate it higher. I have several more cans and I won't be giving them away however.
