Pours a beautiful redish amber ... pillowy head (two finger plus) .. settles to an attractive short head with impressive lacing. Not much noticeable about the aroma ... pretty neutral. Clean taste with a hint of fruitiness ... nicely hopped. Clean, crisp finish. Silky smooth on the palette .. very pleasing mouth feel. A good ale that I wouldn't hesitate to have again.

A: Reddish copper color with a little haze. Light tan biscuit head dissipated to a thin foam ring almost immediately. Low carbonation.

S: Sweet and malty with molasses and dark brown sugar. Cedar. Light pine sap.

T: Maltiness and sweetness up front again. Dry crisp autumn leaf flavor with a reasonable amount of crisp hoppiness. Not a big dry hop bomb like other pale ales, but enough to justify the pale ale name. Finishes with a mild wood and rich black dirt sort of flavor. It tastes like a rich wet deep mossy woods smells.

M: Mild dry. Could go for a slightly larger carbonation. Mild aftertaste of straw. Medium viscosity, theres a thickness to it. Nothing offensive, nothing outstanding.

O: I understand why other people don't rate this highly because its not trendy in the pale ale style. It's subdued. It's wet with a hint of dryness. It's quite good if you're not looking for the modern big pale ale. It's good but mellow for the style.
