Poured 12 oz bottle into standard pint glass. Golden color, bubbly, white head that dissipated quickly. Smell is malt and herbs. Licorice is there perhaps faintly. The flavor is not bad, but a little flat. Some light malt with a bit of a peppery butterness in the finish. Watery mothfeel. Not a bad beer, but not a go to for pale ales for me.

Supurb golden/bronze color and a nice cloudy hue. Not a lot of foam on the pour. The smell is OK and not over powering, but it could be stronger in my opinion. Flower is the first flavor for me and followed by a malt bitterness.

Bronze color, clean and limpid. Almost no foam. But beautiful color.
Pleasant smell, malt-caramel-hop, citrussy and resinous. Classic and well done.
Same notes at the taste. Resinous and citrussy notes, good balance.
Average body, average standing aftertaste.
