A: Clear copper with a three-finger fluffy white head that slowly faded, but never dissipated and left fantastic lacing.

S: Rich, buttery, biscuity English malts overlaid with a well-balanced piney and citrusy hop presence, along with a touch of honey.

T: An almost perfect balance of hops and malt that starts off with a burst of honeyed Maris Otter up front, followed by a light pine mid palate and a mildly resinous finish.

M: Full and creamy, even from a can, this tasted like a hand pump ale.

O: I've never managed to catch the Bronx Brewery stuff on tap, but this canned version means I will be more aggressive in seeking out and sampling it when I do. This is a beer I would be proud to call my own.

I had this one on tap at Bareburger in Manhattan.

A - More of an amber than a pale ale in color. I was a bit surprised, but happy with it. I would say that the SRM was at the top end of the range, which is a nice interpretation of the style as most are on the bottom end of the range. Its almost more of a British pale ale until you hit the hops. The head was small and didn't hang around long, which I chalked up to it being on tap with a lower carbonation level.

S - The hops are mildly floral and pleasant, but definitely american citrus types in there. This was very well done and enjoyable. There was a nice maltyness that I couldn't quite identify there.

T - The taste on this beer is what really sold me. There was a nice, nutty maltyness with a solid american hop presence (mild floral, citrus, & pungent). Very well balanced on this

M - This one has a small oiliness that wasn't very perceptible, but was there in the background. I also noticed some residual sugar that wasn't noticeable until the second half of the beer. Since I was having this beer with an Elk burger, not a bad thing at all.

O - Overall, this was a nice beer and I would definitely get it again. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find it in bottles anywhere.

I got this as an extra as well. Solid Pale Ale bordering on an IPA level of hop characteristics.
Thanks for the extra!

Appearance:Hazy golden color with a slight reddish hue. Lots of head when poured but settles to a nice thin head throughout the drinking.

Smell: Nice floral hoppiness, some sweetness from the malts but not overly so. This one is pretty aromatic really.

Taste: Nicely balanced malt/hop ratio, it was a very smooth drinker. You get a little bite from the hops but its is not overly malty or sweet either. I am not a huge fan of PA's in general because they lack character, but this is an exception to the rule.

Overall: Solid brew, happy I got to try this one!
