Yellow appearance, darker variety, thin white head, 1/6", lots of sediment going on here. Aroma was weak, woody, lacking hops.

Taste had the bitterness but lacked flavors of hops, crystal60 malt. Gritty. This seems like it came off the very bottom of a keg where that shit settles.

One of my least favorite beers from a brewery I really like.

So many pale ales out there. So little time.

The Masterpiece Deli in LoHi in Denver was out of some others I wanted to try first, so I chose this one.

Poured into a plastic cup from the bottle it produces a slight head with good retention and a light caramel aroma.

Caramel malt predominated the flavor profile with a hint of a spice I couldn't name. A citrusy hop presence was more pronounced than many other English-style pales I've tried.

I had this with a cup of miso soup and their homemade chicken salad sandwich. It was a fine accompaniment with plenty of flavor that didn't overpower the food. I could see this complimenting many other dishes.

Pours a hazy amber color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention is mild. Lacing is decent. Aroma of pale malts, slight citrus and floral hops. Nothing to write home about. Pale malty taste with very mild butterscotch and mild bitter hop at the end. Light bodied with mild to moderate carbonation. Not bad, but need to try a bottle that is a little fresher.
