Shiny metallic copper in color with thin, airy head. A little lacing. Clarity is great. Light coppery malt, some biscuit but nothing really stands out in the nose. Faint hint of hops, but I've no idea what kind. Thin flavors, some nuttiness, a little biscuit, then it turns bitter. Copper penny bitterness takes over. No real pine or grassy bitterness. Mostly metallic.Thin mouthfeel with a dry finish.

As you can tell from my description, I wasn't really feeling this. It isn't a good sign when you are describing the lack of flavors or aromas. Pass.

Pours a pretty deep copper color with minimal head. A bit of caramel in the aroma, not a whole lot going on here. Flavors of vanilla and malt, slight diacetyl, not a huge hop presence. Medium carbonation and a bit sticky. A little sweeter than expected, but quite drinkable.

2.9/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a mason jar.

Appearance: A deep orange/Amber color. Minimal head.

Smell: Not great... biscuit?

Taste: Definitely made up for the aroma. I get full flavors of honey and grapes, earthy, mild orange peel/citrus zest and some jasmine. Medium malt and light hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a very nice crisp finish. The finish is the best part for me. Sweet with a very small bit of bitterness at the very end.

Overall: I like this beer. Its not the best but its still pretty darn good. I tend to shy away from pale ales but I think this one has a wonderful fruity flavor profile. Will drink again.
