Tap at Seamus McDaniel’s in Dogtown, St. Louis, MO. Light amber color with a creamy off-white head. Light bitter aroma over mild roasted malt. Medium body with mild carbonation. Spicy/grassy hop over slight roasted tones. Fresh and clean. A lighter pale ale, but a tasty one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Simple sweet fruity aroma, pretty typical for an American-style Pale Ale. Candy sugary retronasals, again something fruity about it, but also a little earthy, some rusty iron. Otherwise, slightly watery body, and with crisp carbonation. Not much to this, it’s a simple sweet bitter with an acidic bite. A bit dead in the mouth, even though it’s bottle conditioned - probably because it’s too fizzy. I do like the bitter tingle of the hops in the finish though. Could rehydrate on this on a hot day.

Bottle. Poured a hazy copper color with a large frothy white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate sweet hoppy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium sweet bitter flavor with same balanced finiish of moderate duration. Better than my expectations.

Straight up pale -- nothing special, but decent enough. Light copper color with minimal head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Mild body until aftertaste, when the hoppiness picks up.
