It's got a nice head, that's got to count for something. The beer itself is a slightly copper colored ginger ale looking liquid. The head is a couple fingers of different sized white bubbles. Thick and fluffy, it's got powerhouse retention and killer lace.
I tried and tried and tried to pick up some sort of scent, but there isn't much there. I think I detected something cracker-like, but I can't be positive.
It tastes like what I imagine dirty water would taste like. It's possibly got some imitation Noble hop variety and maybe even some ginger, but it really does taste like what I think dirty water tastes like.
Has kind of a faux savory feel. Either that or it's just beer gone bad, can't really tell. It gives me a bit of a pucker in the finish which I why I thought ginger might be in it.
Pretty bad beer. Not easy to get down. Better off avoiding this one.

Appearance: yellow/brown more yellow on the spectrum.
Aroma of light malt.
Taste: not much here. light malt, slight hint of some hops.
Palate: very light mouthfeel.
Overall: depends on what you are looking for. Easy drinking beer better than your classic lager but not as good as many beers out there.

A: pours super light blonde, white head, small bubbles some lacing on glass, plenty of clarity
S: nose has sour grain smell, musty hops, and lemon. Something doesn't smell right...
T: taste matches the nose spot on, there is a weird grainy must that comes through with sharp hop character. Terrible balance.
MF: sharp, high carbonation, light body
O: not that great, not worth trying.. too many other better things available to settle with this.

Golden and a little cloudy with a light head. Slight metallic smell and maybe a little malty. Slightly metallic and sweet with notes of coriander and a malty aftertaste. Lightly effervescent with a little bite. There's not a lot to this beer. Like the rest of the beers in the sampler pack, it's fairly uninteresting and has a slight metallic taste. It's drinkable but as satisfying as a good craft beer should be.

12oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. No date.
Appearance - Pours a big white head with good retention and low stick. Hazy gold amber body. Froths easily when swirled.
Smell - Dry corny musk. Slightly bready.
Taste - Follows the nose. Light corny sweetness and faint hop muskniess. Bittersweet, and not in a particularly good way.
Mouthfeel - Light. A bit unpleasantly sticky. Frothy carbonation.
Overall Drinkability - Not even really worth trying. Is neither refreshing, pleasant nor interesting. Not an all together awful beer, but not worth trying unless it's free and there's no alternatives.

Ba Review #117
Served On: 01/27/2012
Glassware: Duvel Glass
Labeled ABV: -
Date/ Code: -
This was in the mixed 12 'Craft Pack' I found at Wegmans in Mechanicsburg, PA for around $13.00.
Look: Poured a cleer light amber color. Some carbonation with a tiny white film on top for a head.
Smell: I definitely picked up on some English Pale Ale characteristics in the nose. The aroma had that distinctive malt that is common to other English styles I've had. There was also a biscuit quality.
Taste: First were some standard malts with some dryness. Middle was a little bready and then the palate went completely clean with a slight chemical aftertaste of chlorine or something along those lines.
I didn’t find this to be that great. There are so many others that blow this out of the water. Although the price is low, I would still prefer a Saranac or Sierra Nevada Pale Ale which are both in the same price range in my area (PA).

A- slightly hazy copper with a small white head leaving lots of lace
S- bread, berries, grass, dried fruit, toffee. It seems like these should work but it comes through as a muddled sweet smells mess
T-similar to the nose but fruitier with a bit of bubblegum character.
M- fairly thin and prickly. The dryness keeps the toffee and fruit flavors from coming through as sweet but there's not enough bitterness to balance. Finishes with a metallic toffee flavor.
O- a pretty poor attempt at the style. A muddled mix of something that I wouldn't recognize as overly British.

Poured cold from the bottle.
This beer poured a slightly hazy gold/amber colour with a ead that disappeared right away. There's really not much to the smell at all; a little bit of a wheat/yeast maybe. A very pronounced wheat taste that is not the most pleasing. Pretty much a craft-beer version of Bud Light...
Would I buy it again? Absolutely not.
