Weak, the bite is not that of an ale. Headwaters by Victory is the class for pale ales

Received this in a recent BIF. Served in a Half Acre snifter.

A: Pours a solid amber color with a yellowish head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring that leaves some sticky lace down the glass.

S: Sticky sweet malts. Some dried oat flavors with an earthy hop character. A little dirty and "green".

T: A lot of earthy hops. Dirty and veggie like with some sweet oat malts. There is an odd metallic finish with some stale malts.

M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Earthy and metallic finish.

O: Didn't enjoy this one particular much. The stale malt and metallic-like character in the finish really was off-putting. Wasn't that drinkable.

CAN acquired as part of an overpriced 12 pack variety box. 12 fl oz pull-tab.

"American Pale Ale." "6.3% ABV." Hopped with Centennial and Cascade.

I get the Centennial hop flavour, but going Caramunich and Vienna on the malt backbone was a faux pas.

Drinkable and approachable, but its lack of depth of flavour and complexity make me wonder if it's really even worth my time to write much more about it. I've had far worse and this isn't bad by any stretch, but it's definitely a shrug of a brew with a dubious grain bill. I dig the classic hop utilization (Centennial and Cascade are solid choices for any pale ale), but neither is showcased particularly well. Nowhere near the quality I'd expect at ~$2+ per can (not that price affects my rating).

More of an amber than a pale ale, it has a fairly hefty malt bill with just a real faint hop in the background. Beyond that it is pretty generic beer.

Burnt orange in body with a bubbly white head. Sharp aroma of grass, detergent, mild vanilla. Tastes of citrus with rind, grassy notes, some mint, bitterness in the center. Medium carbonation in a slightly chewy body. There's a sense of something artificial in the flavoring but I can't quite figure out why.
