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

While not a fan of the style, decided to try since I tend to be an affeciando (?) of MD / Baltimore beers.

For the style, felt it was stury and not overpowering. Decent brew and worth trying; even if you're not into the Belgian Pale Ale style

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,

This is a malt forward ale done extremely well. Not too sweet, but just the right blending of makings that produces a english/belgian style pale ale of the highest quality. Pale Ale lovers should run, not walk, to seek this out and consume in quantity.

This is a tasty hybrid Belgian style pale ale with light fruity American hops but a definite Belgian yeast character.
Pours a crystal clear orange/Amber with a big fluffy white head. Smell is Belgian yeast with sweet caramel-like malt and some recognizable American hoppiness. Taste follows the nose but with great complexity. Notes of pepper, orange, bubblegum, plenty of sweetness balanced by spicy yeast and the hops. Good stuff! Mouthfeel is about average, somewhere short of medium but pleasant.
Overall, a really solid pale ale. Not sure why but I was expecting a light, underflavored pale ale since it's Baltimore Orioles themed (and thus marketing to a larger crowd would take importance over flavor) but I was entirely wrong in a good way. Would get again.

Poured into a can glass. Pours orange red with a fluffy white head. Smells of citrus hops, a little grassiness. Tastes of earthiness and slight citrus with a tad of Belgian grain and yeast flavor. Beer is light bodied and extremely drinkable. Overall an above average beer.

A tasty well done pale ale. Malty, hoppy and sweet. Pretty delightful nose as well. I like it.
