This review was done from a bottle so take it loosely.
A: Can't really say since I had it straight from the bottle but judging from online photos it seems to be a deep copper color.
S: I get caramel like malts and a nice biscuity quality as well. No hops present really.
T: Almost similar to a very malty amber ale. I really get almost no hops except for a very slight floral presence. Caramel and more biscuit malt than I would have expected. Bitterness is underwhelming. Rather nutty as well.
M: A touch too carbonated for my tastes. A bit of a thin body as well.
O: Not a bad beer but definitely not what I would call a pale ale. More like a ESB with hops and balance removed. Could be a good intro beer.

Got this on tap at a local bar. The aroma has very over powering caramel smell. I could not detect any malt or hops through the caramel. The taste has the same overpowering taste of caramel. Aftertaste lingered forever and I found it very unpleasant. This is not a Pale Ale. After a couple a sips, I could not drink anymore. One of the worst beers I have every tried.

Pours a mild amber color with a generous head into my glass. Looks a lot like an English IPA to me.
Sweet with a healthy dose of caramel malt. Not very hop-forward regardless.
Ditto with the taste. "Nutty" with an overabundance of caramel. Very little that resembles a proper example.
All of these flavors stick around at the back of the throat, albeit in an undesirable manner.
Would work better as a brown ale.
