Decent pale ale but flavors were a little muddled and lacked depth. No date printed on can. Pours an amber color with minimal white head and no real lacing. Muddled aromas of malt, toasted nuts, bread, caramel and vanilla. Very faint, if any, hoppy aromas. Taste follows the nose, faded distant flavors and too much malt for me. Thin mouthfeel that was fairly smooth, medium carbonation. Not bad, I’ve just had better English pale ales.

A: The beer is rather hazy yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that has good retention properties and hardly died down, also leaving a lot of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of floral hops are present in the nose along with notes of pale malts and hints of fruity yeast.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of floral hops that stand out in front of the pale malts and also contribute a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation with a slight touch of dryness in the finish. There is also some crispness.
O: I found this beer to be well hopped for a pale ale with a good amount of hop aromas/flavors/bitterness without being overpowering.
