A: A very clean dark golden orange body with a very nice snow white head. Very sticky, very nice.

S: Soapy with hints of orange, malts and a mellow caramel aroma.

T: Begins a bit soapy with some minor grapefruit, tangerine and honey notes. Continues somewhat herbal, a bit buttery with thoughts of fresh grass clippings. Pronounced grainy aftertaste with a subtle toffee notes. Soapiness unfortunately continues thru the entire process.

M: Medium body with good carbonation

D: Pretty straight forward beer. Nothing special but nothing really detracting.

Served in a pint glass.

A- Dark pilsner with 2" dense white head and good lacing.

S- Sweet pilsner malts. Very faint pine hops.

T- Sweet amber malts. Maybe some rye? Hop are very lax in this beer for a pale ale.

M- Light bodied. Low carbonation and very east to drink.

O- Tastes more like a ale than a pale ale, but a good easy drinking beer.

Looks like a pale ale, average yellow, 1/2" head on the top, all white, the lace was inconsistent, but the retention was reliable.

Aroma lacked hops, especially compared with their other beers. Smells grainy just as much as hops.

Taste, doesn't offer much. Its liquid. Its mild. Its easy to drink. An english pale almost, but without that fetid swamp water burton yeast. Doesn't make sense to have this beer in bombers at such a price. Pass.
