Pours clear dark orange with two fingers of head

Smell is really malt forward. Sweet nutty caramel and brown sugar.. Hopa are really restrained

Taste also lacks hops but offers more sweet bready malts. Very little bitterness.

Medium bodied and easy to drink

Decent beer but not much of a pale ale

Thanks to a promo at Exton Beverage, Exton, PA I came home with a variety pack of Lancasters, along with a Winter Warmer (which I've also reviewed) pint glass! So, a few more Lancaster reviews soon to come.

Poured into a tumbler from a 12 oz. bottle.

A- nice burnt orange, with a light haze, and a creamy two-finger, just barely off white head. Retention fantastic, seemingly being able to stick around for days, if I'd let it. Lumps of foam stick around the glass, and even a pile of the head lies at the bottom when I'm finished.

S- Strong malt and grain, which was expected. The thing that really struck me was the aroma of the mashing process, a homebrewer's kitchen on brewing day. It's great. Sweet, breadlike, but distinct to the brewing world. Hops aren't very apparent, maybe a little dryness.

T- Up front with the malt again. I think it is a good balance sweetness, then a bit of a rye bite to spice it up. Again, hops are well hidden, but I can sense them in there somewhere.

M- Smooth, medium-light body, good light carbonation.

O- This beer is damn good. It looks, smells, and tastes great. Emphasis on the smell. I like how the mash has converted all the way to the end. Sometimes hops spoil the smell and flavor for me, but they don't here. Seasonally, I would drink this in the late summer/early fall; kind of a farewell to summer beer. It's a crisp smooth ale, but the grain gives it a light heaviness that welcomes cooler weather.

The beet poured a medium, clear amber gold. The creamy tan head aw about one and a half fingers high. It dissipates fast, but leaves good lacing.
The smell is earthy, grassy, malt and some caramel.
Tasting the beer , up front is a nice bouquet of flowery hops , mingled with some sweetness of toffee, actually very refreshing. In the middle more earthy flavors and a good malt backbone dominate. In the finish there are more grainy notes to round up the taste.
Nice brew, very drinkable and a good value for the price, $12, for a sixpack.
