Poured from 12oz bottle. Thanks to betsona (another night of drinking on the porch)!
A- Pours a darker coppery color. Two finger white head shows medium retention. Nice long streaks of lace on the glass with light webbing.
S- This is a malt forward pale in the nose which to me means it sat a little while. Darker fruits come out as well with a hint of sugary sweetness to them. Light hay like notes as well along with some faded grassy hops. The alcohol is clean with a hint of sweetness to it.
T- Pale malts come on out first with a hint of citrus hops that quickly fade away. Middle of the beer shows off a darker fruit to it that seemed a little out of place. Caramel malts come out in the ending that blends with a small hint of grassy hops. Alcohol is sweet and adds to the overall sweetness on the beer itself.
M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is a little light for the style. Caramel malts, darker fruit and sugary sweetness are left on the palate. Aftertaste is sweet alcohol, hints of faded grassy hops, and caramel malts. Flavors were a little underbalanced for the style I thought. No off flavors were present just a little stale tasting from what I assume as extended shelf life. Medium alcohol drying on the palate.
O- This beer was bland and in no way to me a pale ale. The malts screamed out while the hops for the most part were nowhere to be found. Oddly, enough though I went back to this beer for another pour so I did like it I suppose..haha.

12 oz bottle from my second Beer of the Every Other Month Club. Poured into a tulip glass.
A - Classic look. Very appealing. Crystal clear copper body. Light tan head. Good retention. Very fine bubbles.
N - earthy malts and hops. Not really too citrusy or piney. Maybe some rye?
T - tasty. Hops flavor but not overpowering. Good biscuity malt body.
M - smooth and drinkable.
O - I rather enjoyed this beer from Virgina. Cheers!
