(can, bb 20.01.) slightly opalescent golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of caramel and freshly printed newspapers, with a light hint of campfire embers, floral hops, peanuts and yeast. flavour is rather sweet, with lots of honeymelon, grainy pale malts and quite a bit of cardboard, a hint of dandelions and some more yeast in the light-bitter floral hoppy finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Clear amber orange with a one-finger off-white head and moderate lace. Stale hoppiness countered by solid caramel sweetness. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel, medium carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber beer with a thin foamy eggshell head. Waxy nose of soap, resin, and perfume. The flavor is quite different than the smell with a decent hop blast up front with pine and subtle citrus, which gives way to a light caramel malt sweetness and then everything kind of ends. Very little finish here. Decent, not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from beer of the month club
Pours hazy orange hue with a nice soapy white head and sparse lacing. Nose is really musty, slight tropical notes, dirty gym sock, earthy, never had a pale that smelled like this. Its not bad but not great either. Flavors are very earthy, piney slightly chalky, herbal, slight grapefruit. Some nice malt base here. I find these beers better than the average ratings. Maybe because i got them super fresh. I dunno. Nonetheless, a decent pale ale for the masses.

Beer of month club. Pours from can an ice tea color with one finger of foam head - very attractive in the glass. That is the high point, unfortunately. Nose is a bit muted, mostly malt. Taste is malt, caramel and lemon zest...it's actually pretty simple tasting. It's not bad - definitely drinkable - but nothing memorable.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2015 Pours a deep golden brown with a tan head. Aroma of sour buscuity malt. Taste is full of hop flavor without a large amount of bitterness. Interesting. The malt backbone has a nutty taste. Otherwise it’s a pretty good pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark orange appearance almost no head. From a can and didn’t make a sound when I cracked it. Nose is weak, resinous. Weak. Taste is just not good. Old shoe, mulch, earthy. Almost no bitterness. Thin, flat mouthfeel
