355mL can, pours a hazy golden amber with a white head. Aroma of hops, citrus and floral notes. Flavour is a nice balance of hops and malt. Nice and refreshing, but unremarkable.

By far my favorite Pale Ale. Love the citrus finish and after taste. Clean and easy to drink. A great go to beer for meals or just for drinking.

In short: A rough dusty pale ale. Not fun.
How: Can 12oz. Consumed very fresh a few days after receiving it as a bonus from presario. Thanks Trevor
The look: Clear golden body topped by a short-lived off-white head
In long: Nose is tangy and grassy. Carbonation is way too active, this has the mouthfeel of a soda-pop. Dry pine tree bark, some oranges, dusty yeast, dirty forest floor, dirty leafy hops, dry grass, mineral water, crisp discreet (too discreet) pale malts that keep a low profile. I like dry/dusty beer but this is dry/dusty done the wrong way. The beer looks like a clean crisp pale ale with its clear golden body but it feels very dusty and rough. As far as Pale Ale goes this one is far behind, this red racer is not a ferrari, either that or it had an awful pit-stop strategy.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Can. Pours a golden body with a white head. Very hoppy for a pale ale. Nice grass and herbal tones, a strong pine presence that dominated most of the hop character of this beer. Simple light with a potent pine and hop resinous finish. A nice hoppy pale ale.

[2723-20100123] 355mL can. Light twiggy hops aroma with mildly musty grains. Clear, medium orange body with a big creamy off-white head. Light bitter hops flavour has a long-lasting bitter citrus peel aftertaste. Medium body. Nice drinkable, hoppy and good.

presario (4608) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 7, 2010
Can. Dark amber. Nice head and lacing. Quiet scent. Rich body. Woody taste with nice hops and a hint of soapiness. More Brittish perhaps than American. A nice drinker waiting for Spring on the deck.
