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.

Medium amber color in the New Belgium snifter with a nice pile of foam. Grainy aroma with a whiff of resiny hops.

Warm, rich, malty mouthful, followed by a blast of hops. Surprisingly robust for five percent. The hops are the earthy sort. Toasty flavor with some burnt cereal. Rather sweet from start to finish. Quite a bitter aftertaste. A disconcerting hint of plastic after letting the glass sit for several minutes. Still, it's one of the better brews from Oak Creek and it didn't all go to waste even though it's a rough beast of a Pale Ale.
