12 oz bottle with a plastic label and a freshness code that only the brewery will know how to read.
A- Decent froth, stick pretty good to the glass. Crystal clear reddish amber.
S- Mild caramel malt aroma, faint orangey and medicinal hop nose as well. A very clean nose.
T- Thick caramel palate is hard to break, the toasted husk flavor has a blurring effect on the taste buds. The hops help to balance the sweetness but leave little flavor behind. Finishes with a muted hop and more rough husk flavor.
M- Pretty smooth, a bit too much dextrin IMO.
D- After one I had to switch to something else.
This ale tasted too un-natural and processed to me. There are far better pale ales out there to be had.

An amber color that leans a little darker with an orange hue to the body, this beer is fairly clear. It develops a creamy and pretty rocky head that rises pretty high and falls pretty quickly. It does keep up some of its form the rest of the way, and it leaves a good mix of patchy and spotty lace.
The aroma is a little faint, but there's a good balance, though it's a little maltier than it ought to be, while a light hops presence adds citrus with a touch of rind.
The hops really do need to come out stronger, and particularly so against the malty backbone. Caramel sweetness and toast are the main element, while some of the pithy citrus does come out as well. It does have some graininess running underneath.
Smoothness seems to be favored over crispness, but there is a bit keeping up. It almost runs out of life as it goes, but doesn't quite. Carbonation does remain steady.
