12 oz.

Pours a hazy copper with a sugar white lacing for a head.

Smells of bready malts with some light caramel and toasty sugary elements.

Tastes of toasted bready malts with a mild dry hop bitterness.

Medium body with a stinging carbonation.

A very nice and tasty ale with some simple and very good flavors and aromas. Drinks very easy and tastes quite good.

I open up the fridge to see what kind of beer I have left. I've got this and some dark ales, so I pull out this one and pour a glass. My first thought: I don't like pale ale. Why did I buy this? In any case.

A: There's not a whole lot of head. The beer is a medium amber and cloudy.

S: I take a whiff and the first thing I get is a sugary candy sweetness. It smells like pure sugar, like cotton candy. After that, though, I pick up fruity scents - canned peaches in syrup, and maybe some kind of tropical fruit.

T: This is considerably hoppier than most of the pale ales I've tried, and so, I actually like it. It doesn't have as much kick as an IPA, but there's a good amount of bitterness balanced with some sweetness. The most prominent flavour is grapefruit.

F: Pretty much perfect.

Overall, this is a much better beer than I thought it might be. I'm no fan of pale ales, but I enjoyed this one.
