COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very approachable, versatile pale ale, our 7 Seas version draws inspiration from the venerable traditions of proper British brewing. Brewed with generous amounts of imported golden promise malt, noble hop varieties, and a slightly warm fermentation, this ale displays aromas of fresh fruit, earthy hop notes, and a clean, snappy finish. Ah, nothing like a proper pint! Brewing specs: Original gravity: 12.9 Plato Terminal gravity: 2.2-2.7 Plato IBUs (approx.): 30

Draft pour. Pours light copper with faint wheat aroma. Very light beer. Drinks super easy, and is quite refreshing. Not a whole lot of flavor here, but I can honestly say I enjoy this. Mild wheat and bready flavor. I’ll order it again.

16oz can. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is very light for me; all I can get off of it is a bit of earthy toasty, and nothing else. Taste is bready and not all that sweet, but not all that bitter either. Just not much for me in this one.

HIGHB4LL (543) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Clear copper color. Very fruity aromas. Fruity start with a malty finish. Very crisp and refreshing. On tap at 7 Seas taprooms.

nealblind (764) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Clear copper pour big head. Aroma of malt, honey yeast, spicy flowers. Tastes solidly malty. Rye bread, nutty flavors are present with a firm hop bitterness and a firm acidic component. Seems like a very light brown ale in flavor. Very well balanced.

RobertDale (3463) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - APR 12, 2013
16 ounce can. Pours reddish orange with a decent white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, and florals. Taste is oranges, malt, caramel, and spice. Pretty good.

Hanuta06 (327) - Washington, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Serving: from tap at 7 Seas Brewing. Aroma: wet wool and Cheerios. Appearance: small, rocky, off-white, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Hazy, dark-amber body. Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and grapefruit-like, sour finish with average duration. Palate: light bodied with watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Overall: I couldn’t get past the aroma.

jgb9348 (4738) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Hazy copper coloured body with an orange glow and a thinnish, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of nice toasted malt, earthy hops, a bit of caramelised sugars and a hint of cherries and fruit. Medium-bodied; Strong earthy malts up front with a little sweetness, a hint of fruit and not much else - fairly mild at the end. Aftertaste shows a bunch more earthiness and alcohol and a bit more sugars - fairly nice to finish. Overall, a relatively nice and refreshing beer with some good tastes for the style, but not a complex or great beer - on the more caramel and fruity side of EPAs, but nice. I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from Whole Foods in Seattle (WestLake), Washington on 08-February-2013 for US$2.99 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 27-February-2013.

GTAEgeek (1226) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Pint can. Pours copper with a medium, bubbly head. The aroma is honey, floral hops, pine, and corn. The flavor is mild bitterness and a good malty sweetness. Medium body, with a velvety, silky feel. Overall, this is a good, well balanced pale ale. Nothing special or complex, but tasty.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2012
This brew pours a clear copper-orange color with a medium thick and frothy white head that diminishes slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt, floral hops and citrus. Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, hops, and fruit. The finish is sweet with a lingering malty aftertaste. Above average all around.
