2.83/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an amber color with very limited head, very bubbly.

Smells of lightly toasted malt and maybe a hint of citrus hop.

The taste is quite light on malt with an ok citrus hop bite in the finish. The bitter hop bite seems to be unbalanced and not appealing. On the finish it leaves a bit of a yeasty budweiser like aftertaste. This also finishes dry.

Very light bodied with high carbonation for the style.

I suppose the drinkability is fairly high as this is very light. The only aspect that really hurts the drinkability would be the high carbonation...it's not smooth.

Overall, a pretty poor attempt at a Pale Ale even for AB. I will not seek this out in the future.

3.06/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

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.
