Poured from a can into a pint glass. Honey color with a weak head. Very nondescript on the nose. Mild hop fruitiness, and a mild bitter finish. Not much in the way of malt, and really no strong flavors I could pull from it. A very average beer with not much originality....AVERAGE.

A.. A nice golden hue. Minimal/no head or lace

S.. A typical pale ale

T.. Great tasting ale. Light hops with a good amount of malt (good for the type of brew). A little sweetness

M.. Easy drinking beer. Minimal carbonation, could be a session beer

O.. Very good pale ale. On tap or in the can it's worth the time

Can from trade. No datw. Big thanks for a tall can! Pours hazy orange with a one finger white head and lots of lacing. Floral hop aroma with some grass and light malts in the background. Flavor is a nice combination of floral notes and grapefruit with some toffee coming from the malts in the background. Some dry cracker flavor here and a little on the light side. Somewhat slick mouthfeel with adequate bitter and a relatively smooth finish. Nothing special but at the same time very drinkable and nothing wrong with it. Great cookout brew and in a big enough can to last.

A - pours a deep and cloudy amber. Maybe a fingers worth of white foam which quickly fizzles out. Leaves streaks of lacing against the glass.

S - strong malt character. Cake, hard caramel candy, and doughy bread. Grassy, floral hop notes while a faint citrus undertone.

T - sort of earthy and grainy flavors up front. toasty flavors along with sweet caramel malt flavors. Sweet citrus peel and some grapefruit pith. Finish is sweet and malty.

M - medium bodied. Creamy. High carb.

O - nice pale ale. Easy drinking and full flavored. The big can is a nice touch as well.
