Bottle

Appearance: Pours golden amber with a small white head.

Smell: Smells like a pale ale to me. Definitely has that adjunct corn smell with a little bit of hops in the background.

Taste: I hate to sound like a crazy person, but this tastes similar to FFF Alpha King, although a notch below. You get a corn sweetness that fades into the bitter hops that are there for the duration of the drink. Nothing special but not bad by any means, a good pale.

Mouthfeel: Average carbonation with a good tongue coating semi-chewiness.

Overall: Better than I thought it would be, this random X-Mas gift beer turned out to be a winner. Not quite Alpha King, but I would certainly drink it again over many of the same old, lame domestic options you always seem to get offered.
