On-tap at Moerlein Lager House, Cincinnati, OH

A: The beer is hazy reddish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that left a large collar around the edge of the glass.
S: The nose has aromas of fruity yeast and earthy hops.
T: The taste is quite malty and has flavors of fruity yeast and earthy hops along with a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: While this is a very malt-forward pale ale, it is nicely balanced by the hops and quite flavorful for the style.

Pretty floral in the nose with a light fruity sweetness to it. Not bad, pretty typical for an APA.

Taste has a floral quality to it straight away with a small fruit sweetness and a note of grain in there as well. Finish has a somewhat assertive, medicinal bitterness to it to close it out dryly...I also percept a slight sourness there. Not sure about that.

The beer has all the notes of a standard APA but all in all I didn't enjoy it as much as most APA's. It's actually kind of hard to pinpoint...though the finish isn't exactly what I wanted.

I had high expectations for this one, and I was let down only a little.

A: Beautiful dark amber/red with a nice foamy yellow-tinged head, with lacing pretty much the whole way down.
S: Rich
T: Quite hoppy, even for a pale ale, but full and rich with the fruit flavor behind it. Complex.
M: Really kind of weird by the end. Felt very foamy and uncomfortable.
O: Delicious, but not so great for the last few sips.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy medium brown with a 2 finger tan head. Great lacing.

Smells very floral. Some light biscuit in there.

The taste is very floral with some yeastyness. Moderate bitterness throughout lingering through the finish. A little bit of malt is detectable.

Just an ok beer that I don't really care about having again.
