2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’m brewing a pale ale now, so I thought I’d try this out to make some mental notes how I compare to a stalwart. Well, I haven’t tried mine yet (obviously), but this is not as good as I remember. Kinda bland. Yes, the deep amber color is still there. However, the aroma and flavor have gone - poof! The head and lacing are OK. Sam Adams tastes more like a bitter than this. Slightly metallic aftertaste. Mouthfeel is on the weak side. I don’t dislike this and I would try it again, but this is no longer the standard bearer for pales/esb’s.

"a light pale, in both color and aroma...and flavor. Very smooth, especially served on nitro, but thin and there’s not enough going on to keep me too interested. ok."

Draft at Sly Fox (Pinehurst, NC). Orange/amber pour with a bit of tan head. Aroma of fresh bread, vinegar (?). Lots of earthy, bread-y qualities here. Toasted walnuts come to mind for some reason. Overall, easy sipper.

330ml bottle poured in a tulip glass.
A: Nice clear amber color with a thin beige head which remains for a good time but leave only few lacings around
S: Caramel malts. Sweet. Nutty and woody too. Hoppy end
T: Follows the nose: Caramel malts are very evident. Dry. Light bitterness
M: Light body and reasonable carbonation to an English Ale. A bit molasses
D: Very drinkable. Should be a little bit more bitter to be perfect :)

Pours a medium color of amber and a thin non existent head. Little to no aroma, with a taste to match.

Clear amber color with thin white head. Very lageresque. Tastes like a mass-market pale.

Good beer, was easy to drink and wasn’t too strong. In the English spirit I had it with fish and chips and it paired perfectly

Aroma doce, intenso. Canela e malte. Muito bom.
Sabor ácido, um pouco suave. Amargor médio. Álcool perceptível no fundo. Algo de especiarias.
Retrogosto ácido e amargo.
Creme castanho, denso e bem formado. Líquido alaranjado intenso e translúcido. Muito bonita.

Good highly carbonated beer. Has a very pleasant aroma. Not much head. But, out of the pale ales I've tried I think this ones my favorite.
