COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We kept this one simple, used water, malt, hops, yeast, and made it the kind of beer that will help you, when your (real or imaginary) people are tired, thirsty, hungry, enslave, to step forward and state with authority: Let my people go!

22oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of toasted and caramel malts, some dough, and floral and citrusy hops. Flavor about the same, with a good amount of malts. Average texture. A pretty malty version of pale ale, whereas I’d prefer it to be hoppier.

[Tap] Pours a light shade of amber with a white head on top. English style hops and sweet caramel in the aroma. Grainy malts, biscuit, toffee and grassy hop taste. Mild funk in the finish as well. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

Amber colored pour. Big white head. Tons of lacing. A spicy malty aroma. Spicy, woody, malt flavor. Some hints of Brett sp. Pretty damn good.

bottle. murky amber with a small head. dusty, tart, bretty aroma with crystal malt. light bodied and dry. its been inoculated with brett, so bootsy collins funky flavas dominate. think rayon vert with a healthy dose of mid range crystal malt. i like it. could also be listed under belgian ale.

EricTeusink (634) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Listed on the menu as an English Pale Ale. Given the lack of hop character, this seemed a more apropos categorization. Pours a slightly hazy dirty brown with light head. Scent is non-descript grain and slightly sweet. Taste matches scent. Light medium body with decent amount of carbonation. Draft - Argosy - Atlanta, GA

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 28, 2013
22 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.

The little white box on the label where I would expect a bottle date is left blank.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazed, amber-gold body with a tallish, lightly yellow head. Adequate lacework.

Smell: Spicy, sweetish, fruity, lightly earthy nose. Toasted onion rolls, cooked orchard fruits dosed with spices and sugars. A bit different.

Taste: Toasty pale malts, with touches of biscuit and bread crust. Moderate light brown sugar sweetness. Apricot and apple fruitiness. Spicy hops, lightly earthy, with some herbal tones with an edge of mint leaf. The toastiness, the brown sugar qualities never quite drop out, leaving a bittersweet, soft finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-level, gentle carbonation.

Overall: It’s good, albeit not your run-of-the-mill pale ale, so, I can see many people not quite digging it..

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with decent white head. Aroma of yeast and malts. Taste of super yeast with slight malty hints.

Headbanger (3005) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2013
22oz bottle 6/18/13 (Binny’s Naperville)-42° in Lager Glas-Pours a hazy amber with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of malt, hops, and root beer. Taste of malt, root beer, light cocoa, and bitterness. This medium bodied brew is different but not sure because of the bottlint date(9/12) or the product.

drjay44 (2484) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2013
650.6 ml. bottle. Bottled 9/2012. Pours a thick well retained white head with hint of lacing, over a clear, amber (SRM 12) body.....nose is cereal, light cocoa, light pine, hints of toffee/caramel......taste is hints of toffee/caramel, light cocoa, cereal, finishing with a mild hop bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, slight astringency, carbonation low with a light tingle. The hop back bone is understated for an APA and the malts a in moderate ascendancy. The result is more of an Amber than an APA. Given the bottling date, I wonder if the hops have already declined. BJCP 6/3/11/4/7

Bomber. Cloudy dark amber with a foamy head. Strong floral aroma with a perfume taste and sweet. Just okay.
