So not sure if this an APA or farmhouse ale. The color looks murky cooper. Smell is not gods/bad. Taste has some good flavor and some bitters I can't place. I do like it is a smooth drink. Gotta give this beer scores that are just average.

Can at America on Tap
Deep golden color with a decent white head. Rich bready caramel maltiness with some earth and citrus hop top counter. Decent Pale ale.

Terrible beer. The only thing worse than this beer are the other beers made by this brewery. They are simply the worst beers I have ever had. Terrible.

Poured a nice copper color with over two fingers of head - this baby was live! The nose is bready but also had a hint of Belgian yeast. The same holds with the flavor. The mild sourness on the finish was not terribly pleasant.

Tried it just for the oddity of its name alone. Can't say it was very good though. Basically just bland nothingness. Nothing really stands out as a noticeable flavor profile. Not to mention I look at this in complete bewilderment as to what style it wants to be; pale ale....farmhouse ale..... yet all malt??? What?!?!

And don't even get me started on the Ginger that the label advertises as being part of the brew. It is nonexistent as well.

Drank it right out of the can on a hot summer day. Refreshing. Not over powering, or strong. I could drink quite a few. Good session beer and nice looking can and name.
