Cloudy amber, with an average head but nice, very fine, and detailed lace.

Nose is piney hops. Nice.

Flavor is light hops, mostly pine but with some notes of citrus in there, too. Overall, this one's an easygoing, easily-sessionable pale ale. Not flashy or really standout, but more than enjoyable to this palate.

12oz bottle with no freshness date. There are some numbers printed near the barcode (353B11), not sure what they mean?

Pours amber/orange in color. Head stood about one finger tall following a medium pour. It's been about 5 minutes and there's only a few spots of foam left floating on top of the beer. Pretty good lacing on the glass though.

The aroma is earthy and malty. I'm also detecting a slight metallic/musty aroma that is a bit off-putting.

Taste much like it smells. Earthy and malty up front with a sour metallic flavor about midway. A small amount of hop bitterness in there as well.

Medium bodied with the carbonation sitting on the low side of moderate.

Decent overall I guess. This bottle was given to me in a mixed 6 as a gift. I won't be purchasing this for myself, but I'd drink again if it were the best available beer at a gathering.

Morey's Bottom Line: Lacks the hops that I desire in an American Pale Ale. Maybe if it was fresher, but without a date...who knows how old this is. Couple the lack of hops with the metallic aspect, and this sits at about average at best.
