From a 16 oz can into a nonic.

A-A normal pour produces almost two fingers of eggshell-colored foam. Retention is decent at nearly two minutes, but lacing is spotty. The beer is nearly clear with just a slight chill haze. Color is orange-golden.

S-The smell is a pleasant, but mundane, mixture of slightly grassy and citrusy hops, on the one hand, and toasty/biscuity malts, on the other hand. As the beer warms, I smell a bit more light fruit.

T-The taste is similar to the smell with light citrus and grassy notes balancing against mild malt flavors of biscuit and white-bread crust. The beer is on the dryer side of things, but a bit of sweet fruit creeps in every now and again. The whole package is smooth but a bit, uh, boring.

M-The feel is medium to lighter in body with an average level of carbonation. Very drinkable.

O-This beer is a good looker and drinks pretty well, but the smell and taste are a little underwhelming. It is not that the beer tastes or smells bad, but it is a bit boring. I could use a little more hops to liven things up or some malt to add depth and character. I won't go searching this out again, but I would drink another if somebody had one laying around.

16 oz can. Pours clear golden orange with a creamy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet biscuity malts with some earthy, fruity hops.

The flavor is biscuity malts with some spicy grassy hops and a little fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, OK biscuity pale ale with decent hops.

Bought at Colorado Liquor Mart on Colorado Ave in Denver

Poured into a pint glass

A&S: Very lively transparent copper colored beer. Bright white colored head that pour about a half a finger. Not a very power as far a aroma is considered but it consists of citrus hops, mild grains, and sugary sweetness.

T&M: Pretty bland. Modest levels of citrus hops upfront, some fruity tones midway toward the finish. Crisp mild bitterness. Light bodied, sharp carbonation. Very drinkable

Overall: Not really impressed (I liked it better than Wee Mac though). Not only am I a little disappointed by this beer, but I'm not super impressive by this company. So far has not left me with a good impression. For sure not worth over 12 bucks for a 4-pack of pint cans, kinda disappointed with the purchase.
