Poured into a tumbler on 03.28.14.

A: See through light copper. No head or lacing with an aggressive pour. Can see bubbles rising from the bottom.

S: Flower, grape, cherry. It has a candy-like artificial smell to it.

T: Burnt malt, chemicals. Slightly grape. Bitter plastic.

O: This was an unbalanced mess. The chemical candy flavor could have at least been balanced with the burnt malt, but it was not. The aroma was terrible and it continued to be terrible on the first sip. Drain pour. It had a flimsy bottle typical of AB-InBev. Oh gee, look who owns Bass Brewery!

Copper color with a thin head with short retention.
Sweet aroma with notes of caramels and strawberries.
Flavor of Brazilian guaraná, caramels, herbal and floral tea from its hops, toasted malts, pudding and vanilla. Dry aftertaste with a very mild bitterness.
Light to medium body with mild carbonation.
A mellow caramel malty pale ale. It could be a tad less sweet and more complex.

Biscuity nose with some floral backing it up
Pours brilliant copper amber with a 1" finely bubbled off-white foam cap.
Palate cleansing biscuit, hints of fruit and spice - not very assertive but pleasant and drinkable.
Medium body and medium low carbonation.
