look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Half-finger white head, low retention, but a ringed white floater around the edge. Hazy reddish-brown color.

S- Earthy hops, light malts. Some earthy yeast strains as well. Very light.

T- Slightly bitter, hoppiness but warm tasty malts.

M- Smooth, light. A few shades north of watery. Pretty nice, all things considered.

O- Slightly above average, but nothing amazing.

Had this at Bud's Tavern on draft. Had many times before but only in bottle. Nice rich reddish amber in color. Thick white head with good sustainability. Aromas of sweet malt with a lot of hops as well. Has an inviting look. Taste is slightly sweet at first quickly followed by a hop wallup. Not quite balanced and quite dry. Easy drinking though. Decent amber and worth trying.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

a deep hazy amber with 2 fingers of sticky foamy head leaving behind excellent amounts of thick lacing.
smells of sweet bready malt, grassy hops, and caramel. the taste is off the hook, very bitter for a red.. hopped up with floral and grassy hops, a very clean barley flavor, and sweet overall backbone. medium body with creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.

a very nice beer overall.. very nicely hopped. well, this makes this my 500th beer this year (that i sat down to review) and although it's not the best beer i've had, it is not a disappointment.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has an amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is both malts and hops, some caramel. Taste is also well balanced, caramel malts up front, hops at the finish, easy drinking. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

The pour was a cloudy reddish orange with an average (1-2 fingers) white creamy head that pretty much lasted throughout, reducing slightly and possessing excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was on the mild side with a grain malt, floral and citrus hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).

The taste was lightly bitter with a nice caramel sweetness early on, it then become a tad bitterer with a moderate dose of grapefruit and a bold hoppy presence towards the finish. The flavor lasted a decent amount of time after the swallow with a slight citrus peel hoppiness lingering for little while longer.

Mouthfeel was a few steps below medium in body with a dry and slightly watery texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall this was a pretty solid Pale Ale. Although it was nothing overly special, it did have a really good taste and a great drinkability. I definitely would drink again...
