One of the best pale ales in a can you'll ever find, if you can find it. Tastes great, high abv, eight of these and your doing fine. I like the skeleton on the can. Good marketing dude. Supposedly comes out around Christmas and runs out in February. Drank the last two March 3rd, so that rumor seems true.

A 355ml can with a BB of Jan 2014. Picked up recently from Trembling Madness in York. A pale ale for winter....

Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear brownish-amber hue with low carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a surface layer. Nice lacing. Aroma of pine, subtle weed, peel, grass/hay, sweet caramel malt and earthy yeast. Hoppy and nicely balanced.

Tastes of intense aromatic hops and sweet malt, with a spicy bitter finish. Notes of pine resin, dank weed, orange peel, mild grapefruit, citrus, grass/hay, white pepper, caramel, earthy yeast and stewed hops. Slightly sweet, followed by a resinous bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with mild carbonation and decent body. Hop oils stimulate the tongue. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of pine resin, bitter aromatic hops and faint caramel.

Good stuff - my only real complaint is that it isn't particularly pale. More like an American 'bitter'. Looks OK, colour notwithstanding. The aroma and flavour are distinctly hop-driven, with a subtle malt backbone to provide balance. Decent body; carbonation could be enhanced to add texture. While I don't find the style to be especially suited to winter, it is a deliciously drinkable brew. Worth a punt if you come across it.
