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.

16oz can. pours a dark clear amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, fruity with some floral hops notes. Taste is sweet caramel malt, yeast, fruity mild citrus flavors. A medium body with moderate carbonation on the palate. Finish is sweet caramel malt, yeast, fruity mild hops bitterness. This brew seems to lean towards the sweet malty side with little hops. Overall an ok drinking brew.
