look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A: Poured a burnt orange color with about a fingers worth a head that settles to a ring with spotty lacing.

S: Great mix floral hops and sweet malts with a touch of caramel.

T: I'm getting the sweet malt up front with a mild floral hops finish. Very well balanced.

M: Light bodied, crisp yet smooth and clean.

O: A very good Pale Ale, very good mix of flavors and very well balance.... Worth looking for.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

12 oz. bottle poured into nonic
(10/11/13 born-on date; drank on 12/22/13)

L: orange with a slight haziness; tan head at least 1/4 inch; very nice collar

S: major sweetness, apricot

T: caramel malty; apricot; a bit of barley and grain

F: decent carbonation, all-around fine

O: too sweet, tastes sugared up or flavored but not to the point of undrinkability; definitely a gateway beer at best, for there's more sweet here than anything and next to no hop presence; almost more of a bad imitation of an English pale than anything like an American pale
