12 oz. can - freshness date on all six are illegible (I can make out the year - 17).

It pours almost all foam. One of them exploded. A golden copper body eventually comes through. A thin sheet of lacing sticks.

The smell is of pine, black pepper and caramel.

The taste is of pine that comes across almost like Pinesol. Watered down grain balances the resiny, woody character.

A bit fizzy, I'm wondering if something was wrong with this batch.

It does have a piney woody character.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Good citrusy scent on the nose that does not translate into the taste. Looks fine but the taste is lacking. Nothing special, just typical, hoppy Pale Ale.

Crystal-clear copper hued body; thick, dense, sticky, white head. Pine resin aroma; caramel; vegetal funk. Caramel flavor; peppery; some fruit-like qualities; minerals; mild hop bitterness. Medium-heavy body; mostly dry finish.

A respectable pale ale offering a nice balance of malts and hop bitterness. It is not overly complex but has some nice depth as far as flavor goes. A fine beer...

On-tap at El Chorro Lodge, on to the beer:

Orange brass colored and topped with a white head and light retention. In the aroma, a little vegetal goes with some pine and resin. The flavor takes a similar route to a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, although not as neat. Clean pine, slight honeydew, and overall good for many occasions, such as the short-rib dinner I ordered.

On tap at Lumberyard Brewing Co

A: Pours deep golden amber with a frothy tan head that hangs around before settling to a dense layer and leaving plenty of thick lacing.

S: Pine, citrus, grapefruit, floral notes, and a little light malt.

T: Pine, citrus, lemon and grapefruit, floral, faint fruity notes, and a little light malt. Not overly complex, but it works.

M: A bit on the light side of medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Not a bad pale ale, but a little more depth of flavor wouldn't hurt. That being said, there's nothing wrong with being straight to the point like this.
