This pale ale pours out as a yellowish brown color, the head was decent and faded over time. The smell had a light citrus aroma with some earthy malts in the background. The taste of the beer had a decent flavor of some muddy hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied. Overall I wasn't too impressed with this beer. Not really worth trying again.

Sample at AleFest Dayton: This brew is an orange-amber color with a medium-thin off-white head and a thin sheet of lacing. Medium body with a rather plain-Jane flavor of caramel malt and hops. The finish is actually pretty nice with hops and fruit, and there is a malty aftertaste. Kind of a letdown overall though.

Poured into a pint glass, it pours a crystal clear solid amber color with a thin, foamy white head. Not very thick, but sustains well.

Sweet, floral hops hits my sinuses fairly weakly. Maybe a slight citrus smell, but fairly boring.

Bitter hops hits my taste buds with a bit of floral essence, but very very boring. Decent taste, but nothing special to note. A fairly plain, boring, pale ale.

Decent carbonation up front, with a thinning watery body through the swallow. Nothing flashy again, but solid all around body as most american pales go.

Very drinkable, but this would be a pale ale I'd offer to a MIller Lite or Budweiser drinker willing to experiment a bit. Nothing real special about it, but solid drinkable beer.

Thanks goes out to jwc215 for this one.

Pours a nice clean/clear golden yellow color, nice carbonation, nice little fizzy off-white head, with some sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, very slight hop note, and caramel. The taste is sweet, malty, very slight hoppyness, and some caramel. Medium body. Drinkable, not too bad.

Poured a dark copper color, with a fluffy whitish head. Aroma is hoppy with hints of a sweet buttery toffee. Taste is dominated by spicy and floral hops, with just a tad bit of malt in the background along with that buttery toffee taste. Body is medium, light carbonation with a crisp finish, slightly bitter hop finish. Taste is pretty straight forward no surprises, and pretty hoppy overall.
