Greetings:

It's 3am and your anchor has been dragging since sundown. You're about to be in the drink with a boat in the rocks when you should be on a boat with a drink on the rocks. But I digress. Funky. Hoppy. Imbalanced.

So little karma so little beer,

The smell and taste don't seem to match up. Somewhat of a undermining taste and not what you would expect from a pale.

Light yellow color, small head, no lace
Mild aroma tending toward grassy, grainy
Flavor was not very assertive; slight grain and hops, no malty taste.
Very light mouthfeel; no texture
Not very interesting; doesn't make me feel like ordering another
Sort of a mass-market version of a pub beer.

Tasted at BAM Oktoberfest. Not your average Pale Ale. This fits the profile colorwise for sure and had some solid malt plus an even bitterness. Hopwise it was fragrant and a bit citrusy but quite moderate. The stopper for me was a definite breadiness that I've never tasted before in a PA. If their flagship brew is the Resurection, then this one was more like holy communiom.

Quick review. This is a weird pale. Lots of malt, lowish carb & bizarrely high sweetness. It's not bad, just weird. The sweetness kind of doesn't work for me personally.

On tap at Brewers Art Brew Pub.

Poured a light amber color with a small sized white head. Aromas of some grassiness, grains, and lighter caramel. Tastes of the same graininess, caramel, and some citrus. I found the body to be on the thinner body.

12 oz can, unclear date code

Dark golden Amber, white head. Earthy hop aroma. Taste is fairly balanced but a touch of Belgian yeast flavor. Medium body, easy drinking
