A: Dull dark gold. Greyish head. Good lacing.
S: Vinous, green grapes, strong Liebfraumilch and ginger.
T: Immediately I get prickly ginger plus Liebfraumilch but it dies after a second and you're left with a very flat tasting pale ale with an element of cardboard.
O: Weird. Most insipid.

Standard 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Shows a lightly hazed deep golden with perhaps a hint of copper. Light cap of white foam shows typical and average retention.

Aroma is muddled with some caramel and old hops. Indistinct from all fronts and warming doesn't help a lot if at all. Reminds me of the house beers at BevMo and might well be the same. Likely has some stressed yeast issues/underpitching.

Taste follows with a smooth and lightly carbonated delivery, touch of caramel malt and a very light hop delivery. Touch too malty yet without a balancing hop characer. Obvious house beer quality and previously seen at Ralph's/Kroger if I recall correctly. Brightens a bit on the feel with some spritzy, at times, carbonation. Lackluster finish. Boring and a bit harsh overall.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and citrusy perfume-like aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable but the smell is a bit too artificial in my opinion.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Dark Amber/Brown Color, 1 - 1.5 finger head with some lacing

Smell: Carmelly, hoppy, scent

Taste: A bitterness on the front of the tongue, moving to citrus and floral tones.

Mouthfeel: A little watery, but still quite smooth.

Overall: A nice hoppy beer that pairs very well with pizza.
