Tasted at BAM Oktoberfest. Not your average Pale Ale. This fits the profile colorwise for sure and had some solid malt plus an even bitterness. Hopwise it was fragrant and a bit citrusy but quite moderate. The stopper for me was a definite breadiness that I've never tasted before in a PA. If their flagship brew is the Resurection, then this one was more like holy communiom.

Light yellow color, small head, no lace
Mild aroma tending toward grassy, grainy
Flavor was not very assertive; slight grain and hops, no malty taste.
Very light mouthfeel; no texture
Not very interesting; doesn't make me feel like ordering another
Sort of a mass-market version of a pub beer.

On tap at Brewers Art Brew Pub.

Poured a light amber color with a small sized white head. Aromas of some grassiness, grains, and lighter caramel. Tastes of the same graininess, caramel, and some citrus. I found the body to be on the thinner body.

A big thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is kind of sweet, fruity. Taste is hops up front, surprisingly so since they were not detected in the smell. Some malts, well balanced, hints of fruit. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking and quality beer.

12 oz. can into a Burley Oak snifter (the date is smeared on the can bottom, but this is newly canned, so I'm not worried)

A: Copper body that pours with a vigorous head that decreases rapidly. Nice bit of lacing with just a bit of froth on top and for a collar.

S: Smells a bit Belgian, with a mostly malt nose to it.

T: Easy drinking with only a slight bit of hops, but it is mostly the standard malt taste for a pale ale. One of the better pales for me.

M: Smooth, just a wisp of carbonation felt on the back-end.

O: Good stuff, and up there for MD pride beer (i.e. Orioles, Camden Yards, Baltimore, Old Bay), but for me it can't compete with Flying Dog's Dead Rise.

Poured from the can into a tulip glass.

Copper to bronze red body, and quite clear with some ruby red highlights. Minimal carbonation with a two finger light head that settles to a soapy collar. Fairly decent looking appearance.

Small hints of sticky and sweet Belgian? yeast with a bit of toasty brown bread and faint caramel. Quite a decent balance and inviting.

Light palate provides some easy drinking and flavors. Slight caramel and crisp hop bitterness in the mid palate. Big roof top dryness with some almost saison pepper like quality. Small sweet caramel finish, with a light body, but full enough to let the flavors come out. Bit of an interesting take between toast, caramel, and Belgian dry quality.

Overall pretty decent and easy drinking pale ale from them.
