Poured from a 22oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a very large white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains Belgian yeast, spices, caramelized malts, some citrus and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of Belgian yeast and a hearty malt character. Then a strong spice flavor quickly follows along with some sweet flavors of caramel and fruit. The hops presence is decent for the style and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very good flavorful beer to drink for a long time

When poured the color was a deep yellow with orange hue and a load of white foam. Pour very slowly because of the foam.

The smell was of spices and bitter type of hops

The flavor of this pale ale was the worst I've had from Green Flash. It was to bitter for this bitter ale and the flavor was over bitter with a vinal taste. The aftertaste on the palate was way to bitter with that vinal flavor. What happen to the aroma? The flavor does not match aroma!

1 yr old bottle

Pours out a hazy golden orange with a voluminousss white head. Looking good.

Smells nice with hints of floral, spice and fruit. Gets much more herbal and grassy funk after warming up a fair bit.

Tastes mustier and earthier than the smell which works for me. A touch tart and fairly bitter for a "Belgian".

Very bubbly on the tongue. Medium bodied and dry.
