Got this one in a Beer of the Month Club, and was really excited to try something from Arkansas.

This is a simple pale ale- nothing complex here. From the color right down to the taste. It's refreshing in a sense that it is not trying to do anything crazy like many breweries today- this is just a good old pale ale from the heartland of America.

Its smooth and tasty, a great session beer. I wish I had easier access to this one- I'd have this in the fridge as one of those everyday beers.

A - Pours a nice burnt murky orangish copper color. Little head that disappeared rather quickly with very little lacing left behind.

S - creamy malt grainess little pine scent to it

T - okay at first all I really got was bitterness but after letting it sit for a bit the malt and pine taste came through and the bitterness died down a lot. I'venever had that hhappenbbefore. But after it died down the ale became very easy and balanced in flavor.

M - a medium light creamy feel with a oily bitter finish

O - to me it's a good pale ale very basic but very good and easy drinking. Not session able though but very refreshing.

Enjoy
