look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A - Very foamy giving me a 1+ inch of sticky head and the color looks like a red ale a very deep red copper color, not very pale at all.
S - Smell has some bready malts, touch of caramel, a bit of wheat and a fairly good dose of grainy character. Hope the hops cover this up.
T - Wow this is very aggressively grainy, not as balanced as I hoped. It does have a nice level of hops and malts but it comes off like a Pilsner with harsh dry grains. I don't like it.
M - Not bad it drinks with a light to medium body.

Overall it was far from disgusting and easy enough to put away but after enjoying Mirror Mirror I don't understand why this has a higher rating. Far from a tasty pale ale.
