Into a pint glass:

A: pale golden brown colored body yielding a pure white one finger head tops the pint and an off-colored slightly tan level appears separate from the golden pale brown body and rises to disappear in the head. Barely any carbonation is seen rising. Even after several sips, the head stays throughout most of the beer. No rings are left.

S: as many times as I smelled it even after it warmed, there still wasn't anything there.

T: bitter malts yield a subtle sweetness that tickles some slightly floral tones yet helps to bring out a breadiness that tells my palate to have more. Some banana also comes out.

M: light with low carbonation. It leaves a wet feel. Still, its smooth and creamy.

O: my only disappointment is the smell. Everything else is well done. I would have this again as long as I'm not forced to smell it (not like that would do anything because there's nothing there).

A: Light golden color, with big foamy head at the top that barely leaves any lacing, this looks like guiness basically.

S: Not to much of a nose on this brew, some malts and some sweetness, nothing crazy.

T: Same as the nose, bit of maltyness, some sweetness, and slight hint of hops, no to much going on here.

M: Medium bodied, smooth, and creamy.

O: Nothing crazy, a simple pale ale.
