3.58/5 rDev +15.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Presentation: 12oz brown pry-off bottle...nice ditty about an English-style pale brewed and dry-hopped with Cascade hops...
Appearance: Nice light burnt orange beer with a decent ivory cap which has nice staying power and patchy lace...medium lazy carbonation constantly rising
Smell: Citrusy/floral cascade hops up front...light, but fairly prominent at the same time...just a bit of sweet malt behind it...it's kind of like a typical pale ale, but lighter
Taste: Again, hops up front. The hops are slightly citrusy, but the beer has a metallic twang on the finish...there are mild biscuit/caramel flavors, but these are very slight and in the background.
Mouthfeel: A bit light for the style
Conclusion: Not a classic English Pale Ale by any means, yet this is tasty and is a decent stab at the style (though the Cascade usage is a bit odd) for a macro-brewery. Not worth searching out, but worth drinking if you happen to find it.

A somewhat dated 12 oz bottle from the back fo the refrigerator, wih the review tempered by memory from fresher bottles.
Look: surprisingly good, with a clear, deep amber body covered by a rather creamy looking, bone-colored head.
Aroma: earthy hops are stronger than the malt base
Flavor: again earthy hops over a sweet and light roast malt base but tainted with some metallic tones (attributed largely to age) and hints of corn.
Feel: Medium body with a very good carbonation level.
O: given a fresh bottle, not bad; even roughly average and, therefore, better than expected.
