It is a B+ rating here, so I went and got 6 bottles. I am disappointed. It isn't that great at all. First, it does smell a little different from the other ale beer I have tried, but the color is almost exactly like a pale ale. It also tastes kinda watery like pale ale. I am definitely not impressed. It is drinkable, but definitely not the style of beer that I like. So, I think I will give it a middle C.

The strange smell is weird to me. I never smell something like that, so I really can't describe the smell, but I am sure it tastes better than smell. Somehow I think the smell of this better is horrible. For taste, there is indeed some after taste of little bitterness, and that is it.
