Serving Type - Bottle
Decanted into Pint-tumbler

A - Unimpressive head, very thin and quickly dissipates, unattractive yellow-gold color

S - A very thin nose of tropical fruit - peach - apricot - and grain. Very faint

T - Extreme lack of flavor. This tastes as if someone mixed tonic water and a fruity wheat beer together - not at all resembling a good pale ale

M - Stinging tonic carbonation...extremely thin and water

Ovearall - Once and a while I give an Organic beer a shot...and once again I am let down with the result - Not a good beer, and definitely a bad pale ale. Don't bother with this one.

Cheers!

A - Pale, amber, medium lacing
S - Grapefruit, Metallic
T - Tastes like a non-alcoholic beer. Some malt. Hops are wanting. Watery.
M - Thin and watery. Medium carbonation.
O - Nearly a drain pour. Like the label and the environmentally-friendly efforts of the brewery, but this is a fail.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- Quarter inch retention that fades in 30 seconds. No lacing to speak of. Pale golden color, moderate clarity. Pretty weak looking.

S- Floral hoppiness with light citrusy touches. Hop oil smell that is somewhat acrid. Not very good.

T- The hop oil is strong, it's not even bitter so much as acidic.

M- Medium bodied, smooth.

O- This is a doozy. Not in a good way. Avoid this badboy.

A. It is a completely opaque caramel color, with a big foamy head and lots of lacing. Some bubbles can be seen.

S. There's a very, very mild yeast scent.

T/M. There's an apple taste there. It's an extremely carbonated beer. There's a bit of a pear undertone. A mild-ish finish.

O. I'm not sure where they were going with this beer. It's just tangy, but there's not much of a flavor or an idea there. It's not horrible, but this is definitely a beer to pass on.

Live Review. Poured from one of the 6 12 oz. bottles that I bought at World Wines & Liquor in Mentor about one month ago into a clean, clear glass. Best before 05/16/13 stamped on the label. Admittedly, this was a clearance item at World Wines & LIquor so it may not be the best representative of the beer. With that in mind, here is my review.

A Less than one inch thin off white head that dissipates way too soon even for an extra pale ale. The body is a forgettable slightly hazy but translucent yellow brown. Meh. 2.5

S Muted floral hops over a light barley smell. Not dynamic, rather average. 3.0

T Taste flows directly from the smell with addition of barley husks clearly tasteable. Taste is too thin for me and again, not dynamic, interesting. In fact, it is really forgettable. 2.0

M Too much on the thin side for me. I know that an EPA is not supposed to be big, bulky or thick but really, this is too thin. 2.5

D/O Drinkability I suppose is good but really, I would not reach for a second one of these. Overall not a good EPA. 2.0

Notes: My first one of these was about a month ago and I recall it tasting exactly the same at that time.

Other than the smell I can't even tell this is really a pale ale.

The mouthfeel is very thin with minimal carbonation.

Appearance was not good at all. I didn't even get a quarter of a finger head on it and I always pour heavy for a big head. Very unusual for me. The color is a slightly darker than a Budweiser.

The taste is basically a watered down pale ale. It's as if someone poured half a glass of water and half a glass of pale ale into my glass. Terrible.

Overall this is one of the worst pale ales I've ever had. I can't find an ABV% at all on the bottle but at least there is a best by date on it : May 2014. Which means it's not even bad because it's old. It's just a bad pale ale in all respects except maybe smell which is average at best for this pale ale.

Which sums up my review of this beer quite well - Even the best part about this beer is only average at best.

Bottle to pint glass.
AROMA: A little hops, a little barley...nothing special.
LOOK: Yellow color, decent creamy head.
TASTE: More malty than hoppy.

Overall, not very Wyld at all, pretty tame. Below average.
