Poured with a nice half inch bone-white head that quickly collapsed and left little trace it existed. Smell is oddly of coffee and blackstrap molasses for such a light beer. Beautiful crystal clear orange color with brown highlights.

Trent pale ale has a surprising roasty malt flavor; unusual in a pale ale. At first the taste is peculiar, almost yeasty, but then the flavor mellows. Tapped too young? Or perhaps the recipe needs a few tweaks? Hops didn't become evident until the pint was half finished, and then they were only suggestive of bitterness.

Ends a little muddled and muddy. I was hoping for more aggressive hopping; perhaps even a creative combination--something with some citrus or tropical flavor would go a long way towards a unique new APA flavor profile.

A - Light gold with barely a trace of head

S - Very roasty/earthy tones.

T - Pretty awful. Roasted malts with too little hop bitterness for the style.

M - About right for the style, but felt very light and watery with all the bready/roasted malts in the flavor profile.

D - Most people's beers range from average to excellent for me, but back to the drawing board on this one. Just didn't work at all. Could barely get through the glass.
