poured from a 12 oz bottle.

A: pours an Amber color march darker than I expected. Thin ring of foam and light lacing.
S: some orange and slightly yeasts
T. Orange and slightly sweet. There is a degree of breadiness. There is hint of Heineken in the flavor
MF: kind of thin.
O: there is nothing objectionable about this beer. Would be fine at a bbq. Not something I would seek out again though.

Light amber/orange colour with a tan head and plenty of lacing. Smells of mild hops with some citrus. Tastes of slightly bitter hops and a slight citrus with mildy biscuity malt aftertaste. Goes down smooth but what quality beer doesn't? Not the best, but not the worst. Prost!

Catchy name. Look is good. Dank taste. Piney, bitter, residual. Not much nose. Average pale ale. Would have again.

Dark yellow, half an inch of white head. Aroma was very mild, grain, hops, nothing you can get without searching for it.

Taste is run of the mill pale ale, 45 ibu I'd guess, toasted malt, no off flavors. Like a Cascade hopped pale ale. I can dig it, but not a repeat purchase.

Exceptionally smooth. Mildly hoppy. Well balanced. Smooth finish. Easy on the carbonation, too.
