This is a pretty good beer for the most part. I think it goes better with food though because for some reason everytime I have this beer by myself, I want to have something to eat with it. I often jokingly call it "high quality Alabama bud light platnium" because it's as strong as a bud light platnium but it taste significantly better although it's a medium bodied beer as oppose to being a light beer. I love the aroma this beer has for some reason. I often wonder if this would be a good beer to cook with because of the smell and it's not too heavy or too light which is what I like in a beer when using it as an ingredient. However my biggest complaint with this beer is the price. At $11 or so dollars a 6-pack, this is definitely not my to go to beer. You can get a 6-pack of Sierra nevadas that taste just as good if not better for $8.99 and this is not a good first choice of a beer for those on a budget. However this is a good choice of beer if you got a little bit of extra cash to burn and your having a pizza with a small group of friends.

The beer looked pretty good but the aroma was amazing. The taste was not what I anticipated after experiencing the pleasant aroma. Overall, the experience was good, I'd definitely order it again. Pale ales are my favorite but the flavor wasn't as evident as the taste.
