BMC colored beer, but a full inch of head on it, plenty of clarity. Aroma is lacking hops.

Flavor is meh, bland, unimaginative and just lacking. No off flavors, but also just so mild, lacking hops/bitterness. Fuck that herbal shit tea coming out. Meh dude.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Hazy Amber color. Fine-bubbled white head settles into a quarter inch cap. Webby lacing.

S: Earthy hops bring pine, bark, and a hint of grapefruit zest. Floral. Sturdy malt presence of toasty grain and caramel.

T: Fat malt base of toast and caramel. Vague esters are quiet. Pine and bark from the hops. Floral into the finish.

M: Medium bodied. Fat and chewy feel. Prickling carbonation.

O: A pretty average American Pale. Classic Cascade hop presence, but other than that there's not a lot to look at twice.

P.S. Hokey name, hokey label.

12 oz bottle with no bottle on date found. Poured into a pint glass. Cloudy copper with brown sediment. One inch head that recedes slowly leaving moderate lace. Smell is caramel, bread and some citrus. Taste is pretty hoppy for a pale ale balanced with a heavy sweet caramel malt flavor. Slick light finish. Pretty good pale ale! Cheers!

12oz. bottle served in a shaker pint. No freshness dating evident. Pours a dull honey color with a hazy clarity and a tight, quarter inch, off-white head that eventually settles into a consistent slick. Swaths of lacing are revealed during the tasting and exhibit excellent retention. Nose expresses floral notes and a hint of citrus. Taste consistent with nose; however, there's also a light, toasted malt backbone and a trace of cardboard. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body (but closer to light) with a pleasant, even carbonation and a hint of acidity. Overall, not bad but I think it may be a bit past its prime as evidenced by the cardboard quality in the flavor profile.

L: Very Clean and Crisp with a small, quickly retreating head

S: Pleasant aroma - neither overpowering or nonexistent

T: Crisp and Refreshing - Fruity with a very slightly bitter finish, definitely not a kicking IPA

F: Very smooth and easy to drink

O: A great, refreshing pale ale that is perfect for a go to drink outside in the summer by the pool.

First Review! Whoo!

Great aroma, but taste is much milder than the smell would indicate. Not bad. Lots of better APAs out there.

Look: Nice and clear; very light in color for a pale ale; not much head.

Smell: Really nice Cascade aroma. Dry hopped?

Taste: This pale ale is rather light in taste and thus very definitely hop centric. Most brewers these days would refer to this beer as a Session IPA. Apparently this beer has been brewed for many years, and so its introduction preceded the moniker Session IPA. This beer only used pale malt, Caramunich and Carapils, and not much of the specialty malts, as judged by color and taste.

Feel: Light on the palate.

Overall: A really delightful beer. I had this in a flight at Lock 47 in Centerville, OH (recommended). It was definitely my favorite in the flight.
