2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Highly unimpressive. Very bland flavor, weak malt/hops presence that dumbs it down to a watery, "Beer" flavor. Like Heineken or something. Honestly one of the worse beers I’ve drank...

Ugh. strong, too hoppy IPA. As unpleasent as the loud color scheme on the label. Not the best offering of the BBC

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a odd and cloudy orange/brown with little head. Aromas of yucky grapefruit and yuck. Flavor seems to be based around a grapefruit hops presence, but just plain fails. This has no carbonation on the palate, hops are there, but they’re awfully done in the landfill of mess that is this beer.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Nice amber color with creamy head. Thin, bitter, and astringent with notes of rotten food in the aroma. Very dry with little maltiness or sweetness. Bought in 12 oz. bottles. Not on my regular menu.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear orangey brown color. Sparkles nicely. tea froth head. Olfactory hoppy pine. Hoppy bitter initial impression and obnoxious at times. Borders on IPA territory. Bitter back throat linger gets more intense as session continues. Oily at times. Rude awakening, you forget this stuff quickly after a bottle, will not purchase again. Too much for this lager lover.

thank you Mrbunn for this goodness. Smells like cascades...pours dirty orange with no head. Wow. this tastes like absolute nasty ass swill. Some tobacco, swill, filth, dirt, and some tea. Like an orangutans ass. Epic Fail.

Tonight we had a few beers and some food at BBC, beer was bland lacking flavour, cardboard, moth balls, and malty . Food was like frozen Mrs. Paul's fish. Bar and restaurant were not clean, from the front windows to the tables. Beer is much better in bottles, stay away from BBC they have hit rock bottom. their Pale Ale in bottles is pretty good otherwise their beer is a drain pour , its no wonder so many people take the trip to New Albany Indiana for good beer, drain pour the BBC and go to Richos for some good beer (3.8 rating for bottled BBC APA)the one from the tap is just plain disgusting !

I remember when this beer used to be great. Each time I try this beer now it tastes different.(In a bad way) Sometimes I even get gushers. Also, I recently had a six pack that was so bad I dumped it. And now I am sitting here with another bottle of this stuff and it is has no aroma, the taste is stale and sour, the appearance is a copper to light brown with no lacing, it has a very light body and is oily and slick, very fizzy and astringent. I think it fermented out way to low and they put all the hops in at the beginning of the boil. Whoever is making this beer has really done some major damage to the original recipe or method of creation.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I must preface this by stating that I received an old, past date beer. I feel that it is important to review the brew in the condition which I obtained it. I am going to try to seek out a fresh batch and re-review this at somepoint in the future. An orangish/amber/copper color with some yellow highlights around the bottom and sides. It’s hazy with an off white colored head that was kind of small and didn’t leave much lacing or have much retention. The color is nice though. The smell revealed some apple and some sourness. I think I may have a bottle that is a bit old. No real citrus to speak of. It smells dank and stale. The taste was completely rank!!!! Tasted like amonia!!!! The mouthfeel SEEMS medium and dry. I couldn’t really tell because I was too distracted. Couldn’t drink it. A drain pour.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz bottle into my Darkness glass...Pours a super dark copper with no carbonation at all...A light grassy aroma with a hint of hops and alcohol on the finish. An unappealing aroma but not strong enough to detract...The taste is really harsh and bitter, metal, hop bombish hops bitter.
This is a hop head dream in a pale ale. Not the proper taste profiles, skip this.
