Pours a clear gold color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of floral hops, slight citrus hops, hint of spicy hops, hint of grass, hint of wheat, and sweet malt. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of floral hops, slight citrus hops, hint of spicy hops, hint of grass, hint of wheat, and sweet malt. Overall, above average in all aspects, but nothing outstanding.

A solid APA that any homebrewer would be proud to serve. An herbal aroma that’s barely there. Disappointed that the pats did not seem to come through in anyway.

Piney and sweet. Bitterat the end of a taste. Malty adding to the sweetness. One of those beers that can be drunk a little warm. On tap at the airport, the lace was a little low.

On tap in New Bern, 9/3/18, pint glass.

Translucent amber color with a 1F white cap that tapers to a film and leaves sticky rings of lacing.

Piney, dank, citrus and floral. Oats.

Citrus, lemon, floral, dry cracked oats, pine and earth, toasted malt.

Piney, chewy, bitter. Medium body, good carb. Oats pump it up a bit.

Sturdy drink yet not too strong. ABV and bitterness are set right for all around enjoyment.

On tap at Carolina Ale House at Raleigh Durham airport. 16oz pour in weizen glass.

A: Clear/bright pale amber with persistent 1/4” rocky foam and plenty of persistent lacing.

S: Floral, pine, citrus. Very nice.

T: Nicely bitter with just a bit of bite to it. Cracker like malt in the middle. Lingering bitter finish.

M: Good carbonation. Slick mouthfeel and some good thickness from the oats.

O/D: A very solid APA. Hit the style well and made killing time at the airport enjoyable. Went well with tacos and could easily have another.

16 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 6/29/2017. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy medium golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, mango, melon, citrus peel/rind, light pepper/pine, toasted biscuit, light honey/caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, mango, melon, citrus peel/rind, light pepper, pine, toasted biscuit, light honey/caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, mango, melon, citrus peel/rind, pepper, pine, toasted biscuit, light honey/caramel, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 5.4%. Overall this is a delicious American pale ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish, never aggressive. Nicely vibrant/dank hops; nice bready malt backbone, with mild lingering sweetness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. Still tasted great, considering the age of the can.

Surprisingly hoppy. The smell is a bit dank for a pale ale. The taste is a smooth ale with a hoppy bite. Just a hint of pine. Consistency is perfect and flows good year round. Definitely worth a shot for any palate that likes bitters.

Look - slightly hazy golden orange with a three-finger white head that has nice retention and creates spotty but ever-present lacing.
Smell - citrus is pretty powerful, piney hops as well, caramel, bready malts, and maybe some floral notes, but overall a nice blend of hops and malts in the aroma.
Taste - hop bitterness is strong, and as a result, dank pine and juicy citrus are most dominant, but there are notes of caramel and grainy malts along with creamy oats.
Feel - high carbonation, creamy body due to the oats, and incredibly smooth.
Overall, I'm digging this beer a lot. I'm not really into pure hop bombs anymore so I appreciate that this has more complexity by mixing rich sweet malts with the bitterness, and the cherry on top is definitely the addition of oats to make it creamy and fuller in body.

Appalachian Mountain Brewery Spoaty Oaty Appalachian Pale Ale, Poured into Heinzelmannchen pint glass from very cold 16 oz. can, which says a lot on it, including 5.4% abv. Nice and rich golden color, slightly hazy...easily attaining a full 2 finger head. Very piney aromas in the air around the glass and nose...a great fresh scent that makes you think you're near Boone. By halfway, some lacing is present, along with a thin white layer of fine foam. The taste is also piney,crisp, tart, bitter, dry and light. Mouth feel is a high point. Nice finish, no lingering annoyances, just dry bitterness.

Eh, this just must not my thing...I like it better than SNPA, and it's decent enough. I get the oat thing, but....it's just I find it kind of hollow. I will say it goes down fast and easy enough.

For the fans of piney bitters.
