Copper and hazy with no carbonation, topped with 5 fingers of fluffy, yellowish head.

Smells of vitamin c and children's aspirin, burnt caramel and hints of evergreen forest.

Tastes of caramel and creme brulee, hints of battery acid and an afterthought of grapefruit pith.

Medium body, little carbonation.

Got in Kunming, China and I'm drinking it in Chiang Mai, Thailand, May 1st 2017. Tastes like its been on the shelf too long, but was so stoked to find this one in Asia after having tried their brews all over the USA, including Kansas City.

Murky golden, light piney-orange aroma. Taste is light, balanced w/ hops lean. Fresh, balanced pale ale.

Good looking pale with nice foam and and easy going smell and taste which to me is all I ask for. Slightly sweet and more hoppy than expected but I guess thats the trend these days. Overall nothing to faun over but still a rather tasty pale ale.

Single 12 ounce bottle, on to the beer :


Into a glass, the beer looks toasted orange, topped with a somewhat creamy head above. I smell a burst of vague citrus and a note of diacetyl, smelling like an old school pale ale. Not the cleanest pale ale around; there's a note of diacetyl with an herbal character with drops of citrus and honey. It all swims in a light body that's easy drinking. This was alright, though I'm more partial to the Tropical Pale Ale.
