Copper body, clear, small white head and only a little lace on the glass. Notes of sweet bread, pepper, flowers and light citrus. Thin feel, lighter carbonation and clean yet uneventful feel. Session ale in abv but not something I want more than 1 of.

Hoppy, with some malt touches and a bit of a bitterness to it that's hard to pin down. I'm not really a fan of it, as it just seems like it's trying too many things, none of which blend at all.

From a mix 6. This was pretty good for a session ale, meaning it has enough hop to be tasty and enough backbone to avoid problems of most session IPAs. The abv is on the high side for that designation. Bottle says 5.5%.

Pours a clear amber, with a frothy white head that dissipated quickly, but left a surface presence.

Grassy hop dominate the nose, with some fruity esters swirling round the sides.

A pleasing medley of hops and malt, the hops have 3 stages of flavor, the malt sort of overlays the experience and ends the experience with a brown bread bitter.

Medium bodied, smooth and drinkable.

A very tasty brew that leans towards IPA but with balanced flavors.

Mostly clear with flecks in suspension. Amber to copper in color with low or medium retaining fine tan head. Raisin and sweet orange aroma. Not very strong, especially through head. Light funk or sweat in there as well. Tart, raisiny flavor. Caramel malt backbone. Faint molasses and peppercorn notes. Leafy, herbal hops set in about halfway through, brought out by carbonation effects. Dry finish. Mildly rindy, earthy aftertaste. Well-balanced overall. As others have suggested, tea-like. In any case, much more an amber than a pale. Medium-bodied, and decent amount of prickly carbonation.

No date on bottle.
Dark amber with a fluffy finger wide head and a little bit of lacing.
Really flat on smell. If this is dry hopped then it might be old.
Tastes is relatively sweet with mild hoppy character but nothing too exiting.
Smooth and adequately carbonated.
A decent mild amber but not a good APA
