I love Boneyard, but this one was not my favorite. Judging by the rest of the reviews, it seems like I might have gotten a bad batch. Looked and smelled good, but just tasted off. I will definitely try again.

It appears an orange/amber like color with about an inch of white foam.

It smells a bit citrusy. There is also a tad bit slight bready malt smell as well.

The taste is a nice blend of citrus like hops backed up with a dry malt flavor. There is a nice profound bitter aftertaste. The flavors seem to mingle nicely with each other.

The carbonation is moderate. The drinkability to me seems average for the style.

Overall this is a better than average pale ale but is not ground breaking in any way. Worth trying if you see it.

My buddy maltbombpete introduced me to these guys... I first had the Black13 at The BeerMongers, and then my bro snagged up some of this pale for me to try. Drinking a cold mason jar of it now for me to review....

- Nice clear copper ale.... slight fog, but more clear. The head is quickly thick... fuzzy... and lays down quick leaving thick sheets of lacing all about the glass... the whole way down.

- Nice bright piney bitter hop scent... light biscuit, bready caramel malt... and a floral touch of hops as well. Slightly grassy and earthy.

- Smooth and very balanced drinker here... great subtle pine bitter hop with a light aroma of floral and grassy hops... perfectly balanced with a smooth sailing caramel pancake batter of a malt.... biscuit, grain... oat-like...

- Medium bodied... slightly creamy almost, but still light and not so chewy sticky....

- A fantastic drinking pale... and different. With all the beers out there, it's nice to see a start-up come out with a beer as simple as a pale... and have it still stand out above the rest. Very good.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a dark golden yellow with about 3/4 of an inch of white head that had decent retention and lacing.

The aroma was crisp and well balanced, a very nice blend of malt and hops. The taste was very similar, crisp, sharp hops built on a solid malt foundation.

The body was full and smooth. Drinkability was excellent, you could easily settle in for an afternoon with this brew. Overall, not an earth-shattering beer, just an extremely well done example of the style. Worth seeking out.
