COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This pale ale is brought to the nose with slight citrus aromas and has a complex flavor balanced by a subtle malt character for a smooth, clean and crisp finish.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 9, 2013
355ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is mild citrus and cereal grains. Taste is light citrus bitterness with some metallic notes a grainy malty sweetness. Certainly, this is not a craft Pale Ale, taste only slightly better than a typical lager.

ccex (924) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle was labeled "small batch no. 0058", as I guess they all are. Pours an almost clear orange with a tiny head of soapy film. Smells OK and sufficiently hoppy. Aroma is nothing special, just normal hoppy. Tastes sour with a strange, almost metallic aftertaste. Maybe Iíd like it more if it was in a cheap generic can that simply said "beer" and didnít try to fool consumers that it was of even average quality.

Pours a clear orange color with a soapy white head.The aroma is of pine and malt.The flavor is a sour funk taste.The body was somewhat thin with a light but funky aftertaste.Overall just a bad beer.

flatmatt (1112) - Northville, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours clear golden with a white head. Pale malt aroma with some sweetness and very light citrus notes. Flavor is more pale malts with a small, sharp touch of bitter grassy hop, a bit of butterscotch. Drinkable, but not really too much beyond a macro lager.

Anybody else notice your bottle is also tagged No. 00058. Oh, you mean it isnít REALLY a small batch, it just looks that way because your commercially printed label is made to look that way? Ofercristsake...

12 oz bottle. Darker yellow pour nice white head. Nose is fairly faint grain and hops. Taste is refreshing in a hot day. Will not be confused with some of the larger rated PAs but I enjoyed this.

thirdeye11 (5549) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2011
(12oz bottle thanks to mar) clear pale yellow, lasting film of white soapy bubbles. Nose of rhubarb, fruity pebbles, old grain. Taste of fruity pebbles, rye, stale grain. This is gross.

This stuff was pretty cheap at Whole Foods so I was hoping itíd be pretty good but itís really just not. It is maybe on the same lines as a lower-tier Sam Adams brew or something like that. Itís a clear golden pale ale w/ no real vibrancy or fruitiness from the hops. There are no real off flavors and itís rather drinkable aside from the fact that it just sort of tastes like bitter malt water. I definitely donít hate it but I quite honestly have no desire to drink this again.
