It fails as an American interpretation of an English Pale Ale. Typically, the English Pale Ale is malt-forward in style, but this bottled beer had nothing forward of interest. Perhaps the beer was stale or had been heated in transit?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber pour some head. Aroma of pine, medicinal hops, oaky malts. Starts out tasting like a regular hoppy pale but then finishes with the taste and palate of a pilsner! Highly sessionable pale, it won’t give you hop heartburn and will satisfy people who like the flavor of hops but not the bitterness, but for crazed hop heads should look elsewhere.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear orange pour. Pretty mild all the way around. Not much hop flavor. Heavy on the malt. Hint of resin. Nothing offending, but nothing to get excited about.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Modest hop expression with flavor of grapefruit rind and apricot with a subtle note of resin. Malt adds some flesh but flavor is restrained. Some bitterness and chalky mouthfeel are present.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden orange with a white head. The aroma is strong citrus hops, more hoppy than I expected. Very nice aroma. The flavor is citrus hops with quite a bit of hop bitterness as well. There is also a nice malt backbone to keep the beer from being overly bitter. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is mild, with citrusy notes. Taste is well-balanced with some caramel malt undertones and slight citrus from the hops. Palate is clean, with a light mouthfeel. Overall a very enjoyable, classic, easy-drinking pale ale.

Can at Big Sky Resort. Tastes like bitter hops and wheat. Very little aroma. Not too impressive.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours gold with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is oranges, floral and citrus hops, cereal, cookie, and biscuit malts, and light pear. Flavor is balanced sweet malts and grassy hops with citrus fruit esters (mostly grapefruit) and light toast; dry, lightly bitter finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours deep clear gold with an off white head. The mild aroma offers up a light mix of citrus, pine and floral hops with a bit of malt sweetness in the background. The taste is similar where a style relevant pine to citrus hoppiness starts things off with a decent level of bitterness. To midway and into the finish it gets more floral hop like and then ends with a faint lime quality. Pretty nice Pale.
