Bright bronze with busy carbonation streams. I like the color. Soapy looking head with decently good retention, wavy lacing on the back side.

Some hop aroma, a bit bland. Grassy, almost pilsner-like. A little lemony citrus

English Pale Ale, eh? I'm not really so sure about that. I think it's just kind of a weak pale ale, and not really at all deserving of the "extra" tag. Pretty malt-forward. Has hop flavor primarily of pine, light bitterness. Grassy. Tastes a bit stale, even though that can't be the case, as this was a new spring sampler box. It hits me now that this is extremely tea-like in the aftertaste

Light body and a bit heavy on the carbonation.

Not real challenging or interesting, but there's nothing about it that makes it hard to drink. At the same time, I'm not dying to drink the other two or anything. It does wash down a meal okay.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.
Dark brown color, bit of head. Smells like hops and malt.
Tastes like a pale ale with a bit more caramel than usual. Bitter finish. Lingers a bit.
Different than the pale ales I'm used to. Could use more hops.
Decent enough I guess.
