Pagan perfects the pale ale. Yellow gold color, thick white head, crisp lemony and grapefruit citrus hop aroma, bready malts encircled by fresh American hop flavors, coming to a point of enchantment in the finish. Pagan will make a believer out of you!

Very tasty PA. Lots of pine, citrus on the nose. Very very hopped. Pours a dark yellow with a medium soft head. Lots of lacing. Taste is a heavily hopped malt blend that goes down smooth.

Bottle. I was a little disappointed in this one. Loved the fancy packaging but the beer inside was not so good. Orange in color with a very then head, Aroma was a weak, grass, hay slight citrus smell. The taste was extremely weak with hints of grass, hay, watery finish.

On tap. Served a nice golden color with a foamy head that fades to good lacing. Aroma of lemon, citrus and some malt sweetness. Taste of citrus with malt sweetness and bit of grain. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, smooth with a nice malty feel. Nice beer that goes down easy.

nearbeer (4389) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2015
12 oz. pours lightly hazy copper and has a film of foam. Nose is caramel, resin, darkish bread and a touch of citrus. Tastes of earthy tea, toffee, resin, toasted pecan, bitter wood, sourish orange and overripe apple. Near medium body has medium carbonation and a long wooden/cardboard finish thatís the least pleasant thing about this otherwise tasty ale.

At six percent alcohol, I might just go ahead and call this an IPA but, whatever, it is a tasty, hoppy ale that is pale in color one way or the other. For some reason the faux painted glass of Carsonís beers made me think theyíd be crappy but they have all been really tasty so far and this is no exception. It is bright orange in color and its head is made of even-sized medium bubbles and is quite long lasting. There is a fruity white grape character to the hops in this that I quite enjoy along w/ the more typical citrus/grapefruit character you come to expect. A slight touch of sweetness and bready malt character brings out some juicy orange character once you taste it and it all comes together very nicely. This is a medium to full bodied beer w/ fine but vigorous carbonation to keep things nice and drinkable. It finishes w/ a firm citrus rind bitterness and a light touch of caramel sweetness. This is a really done beer whatever style you might want to call it. It is not breaking any new territory but there is something to be said for just making a style everyone likes and making it really well.

rubbishystuff (2112) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 From BandC. Perfectly acceptable not extraordinary APA. In addition to the grapefruit the hops were a big peppery. Serving: Bottle

Ernest (6905) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, grapefruit), with a light note of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Not bad in the aroma department...some fruity allure is only slightly marred by buttery diacetyl. Overly syrupy sweet in the mouth, though, so drinkability is limited. About average overall.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Clear golden yellow bodies with a modest yet sustained creamy head, this has a pleasing aroma of lemon, lemon rind, and grapefruit. The malt presents itself in the taste as a mild grainy sweetness, soon supplanted by the citrus hop flavors and a moderate zesty bitterness. The finish is dry and lightly bitter. Nice APA.
