A- Pours as a deep golden color with an orange glow that settles into the glass with a slight haze. One of the largest, frothiest heads I have ever seen. Slightly off-white head that takes forever to settle.

S- Decent amount of hoppy aroma with hints of citrus and pine. Bready malt sneaks through to provide some grainy aromas.

T- Pretty balanced with the piney hops coming through the toasted malt. Hints of caramel malt and a sugar-sweet flavor sneaks in from time to time as well.

M- Not sure if there are carbonation issues with this one or not, but the huge head seems to have impacted the carbonation. Otherwise, medium bodied and pretty drinkable.

O- A decent pale ale that is easy to drink and balanced. Worth a try.

Doing this review off memory, wich is quite hard considering its not that memorable of a beverage. I believe the main reason I put reviews up on BA is to help me remember what impression I got from that particular beer at that particular time. My memory has never been that good so this does help me to log my own opinions for my own use, but if my review of any beer I post helps some else in some way then great. But don't let my opinion sway you one way or another about trying a beer. I say if you have a chance to try any beer of any style regardless of what you think of that style give it a shot, you know what they say,don't knock it and so on.
I about forgot what I was posting about, oh yeah, RJ pale ale. No thanks.

Into a mug:

A: golden body, one finger`s worth of white head, light speckled lacing, some rings,

S: pale malts take center stage, hopped just enough to make a presence as it warms

T: bitter and slightly sweet here and there, sweet aftertaste, sticky finish

M: light to medium, sessionable, carbonation is spot on

O: I say this is good for the style and good for me
