This is a light beer with an aroma hint of floral and fruit. Just enough hop for a good flavor. Balanced throughout. Like Lays potato chips, can't drink just one.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the TacoMac in Douglasville, GA. The beer has a pale yellow color with a really great aroma. The flavor brings a slight citrus flavor with a little bit of hoppiness. I really like this beer and I recommend that you try it if you can find it.

Tasted from a bottle and on tap. Plenty of hops. Haven't tried the can version.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Light orange with a 1/2-finger head
S: A mixed bag of grain, fresh bread and a light hop note
T: Grain and a hint of hops. Clean but no complexity
M: Light bodied, crisp
O: I could easily knock back a few of these on a hot day. Probably perfect for Alabama but overall that comes at the cost of lacking much complexity. Needs the hops to strut their stuff a bit more

Not a bad pale ale at all, my only concern is that on the can, it says brewed and canned by beltway brewing company...so technically back forty didn't brew it. Ghost brewing...
