Nice brown/orange ale with great 2-3 finger head with great lacing and nice retention. Smell is of fresh grains and hops. Not the citrus hop variety but very floral or piney. Still smell very nice and fresh and earthy. Once again the taste profile is about as solid as you can get for an Pale Ale. I think it tends to lean towards the English style with sweetness and malt balancing out the hop profile. Very fresh grain taste as well which I really like. It also is very full bodied ale, not like some of these watery and thin but citrus hopped session ales lately. This is a classic very well crafted pale ale and I highly recommend. I'll be finding this one frequently if possible.

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.

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.
