I got this as an extra as well. Solid Pale Ale bordering on an IPA level of hop characteristics.
Thanks for the extra!

Appearance:Hazy golden color with a slight reddish hue. Lots of head when poured but settles to a nice thin head throughout the drinking.

Smell: Nice floral hoppiness, some sweetness from the malts but not overly so. This one is pretty aromatic really.

Taste: Nicely balanced malt/hop ratio, it was a very smooth drinker. You get a little bite from the hops but its is not overly malty or sweet either. I am not a huge fan of PA's in general because they lack character, but this is an exception to the rule.

Overall: Solid brew, happy I got to try this one!

Appearance - 16oz can to IPA glass, aggressive pour. Huge 3 finger fluffy white head took its time to settle down . Dark orange color

Smell - Biscuity and Carmel with some slight hop dankness

Taste - malty sweetness, nutty, a bit of citrus.

Mouthfeel - med body, smooth, creamy. High carb

Overall - a tasty Pale that's a different change of pace from a standard Pale that Im used to. Received as an extra from farnold

Poured a hazy dark copper in color, topped with a medium-tan head. Good lacing.

Nose has a sweet and rich malt character, which is accented by a classic English yeast -- highly reminiscent of an Old Ale.

Sweeter and maltier than most in the now-accepted APA range, but with a much, much more reserved hopping profile (aromatic and bittering) than is found in the same. Biscuit malt notes emerge a bit further in the drink, but are slight enough as to be barely noticed under the sweetness, the weightier-than-average body and even the sheer alcoholic strength of this one.

The hopping is "classic" in the sense that it is in character with British 'pale' ales (low gravity to high gravity… ), and is just reserved enough to not be obtrusive. A touch more bitterness might accentuate the biscuit notes in the malt profile, but wouldn't dry it out necessarily. As it is, American hop-heads won't go ga-ga over this one, but others who are looking for a very easy-drinking, fuller-bodied go to ale might like it.

It reminded me a lot of the Pine Belt Pale Ale from Southern Star, only with less of the peppermint notes in the hops. ;)

A hat tip goes out to gory4d for the can!

Nice looking beer, color is a clear amber with a solid finger of creamy, off white head. aroma is mild, containing mild caramel and a bit of hop funk. TAste is odd, but not terrible. Very sweet. containing malt notes of caramel and biscuit, slightly yeasty, only the slightest bit of earthy hop presence, slightly metallic at the end. Texture is a light/ medium body, with mild carbonation. not quite dry or juicy.
overall it's a unique beer in the sense that it's very light for a beer dominated by malt flavors, however it definitely lacks balance and isn't very exciting once getting over the initial, sweet effect. not bad but would not by again.
