I spent the week in Sedona Arizona and tried the Oak Creek brews both at the brewery itself as well as at a lot of the other local places. This beer, in fact, is also labeled as an Enchantment Pale at the Enchantment resort.

The beer was somewhat typical of a pale ale, with a light hop aroma and flavor balance by a light, bready malt. Color was a light copper with a small amount of very light colored carbonation. Taste was pretty typical of a pale ale, not my favorite, light hops, not too overpowering in any category. The subtle smell was of hops but it could have been more present.

Overall, a decent beer, just not good enough for me to seek out.
