Can. Slightly hazy orange body, not much head. Slightly musty pine needs and grapefruit rind over toasty malt in the nose. A differently-hopped pale ale: it goes with a zingy lime zest and grass clippings over light pale malt. Dry, hoppy finish marred by a metallic thing.

Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a medium colored amber but completely transparent. Thin white head. Spotty lacing. The aroma is lightly hoppy with some citrus notes. Pretty bland, but not appalling. The flavor is lightly malty with light grassy/citrusy hops. Decent palate finishing clean. Very drinkable for what it is. Iíd pick this over nearly any BMC product.

Dusty copper color. Also dusty off-white head. Herbally grains aroma. As I swirl it in my snifter, it is slightly offensive. Taste is stale snowball water (eating a snowball). Stale grainy malts with some sweet malt liquor character (maybe its the can). Meh...

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can: Pours to a clear amber colored body with a medium eggshell-colored head that leaves a bit of lacing and lasts for a bit. The aroma is light earthy malts, caramel, and very mild hops that almost smell spicy. The taste shows a bit of bitterness, though not much fresh hops, thereís some grapefruit hops midway through but theyíre dull, not bright, and some floral/grassy bitter hops throughout. Thereís a bit of allspice, earthy caramel malt, pale malt, honey-biscuit flavors, and a tough of bread. Light bodied, medium carbonated, finishes without much aftertaste, though there is a bit of residual bitterness left from the hops on the tongue.

12oz can shared courtesy of TomDecapolis. Cool looking can. Poured a medium amberish color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of some earth, light citrus and some peppery spices. Tastes of caramel and light earth. Thinner body.

From a can...pours a translucent golden amber with an average foamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of stale hops...odd spice almost like a ginger or something you would expect from some Asian dishes. Also picking up some vegetables, some caramel malt hidden in there. Flavor of vegetable, that same odd spice I was getting in the aroma a little more toned down. Very thin. Wow...this really wasnít too hot. If this brewery plans to stay in business in the craft beer market they better make some drastic changes.

Compliments of Santa.
The body is a dark orange brown and holds a creamy looking, thumb thick head that diminishes slowly.
The aroma is stale hops, sulphur via rotten eggs and rotting vegetal matter. That might smell good on the 456th day of a siege, but you really have to ask yourself is there any shoe leather left?
The fore is again stale with some more vegetal notes and an adjuncty kind of flavor I associate with really cheap south american lagers. Maybe it is just the water. The feel actually isnít that bad and the worse thing about the flavor isnít the offensive notes, but the overall lack of flavor.
