Not sure this should be classified as a pale ale. Mouthfeel was thick and very little carb. Very bready and malty taste but lacks complexity. Not a total disaster but could use some refinement.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 5-15-2011 (Bottle) This beer has a medium sized very fizzy off-white head that mostly diminishes, golden hazy body, fizzy carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, suggestion of toffee and hops. The taste is caramel malt and hops. The mouthfeel is smooth and this is a light-medium bodied beer. This beer is not overly hoppy tasting and has a lingering hoppy aftertaste.

Golden orange color with minimal head. Bread and hops smell. Taste is a bit thin with toffee and bread notes. Carbonation is average. Not good enough to buy again. (3/5 in other app.)

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly murky dark orange with a pillowy off-white head. Aroma has a hint of dates and some crystal malt domination. Flavor has some caramel, raisins, some more of that crystal malt funkiness. Just slighlty off-putting and tastes a little bit dated. Mouthfeel has a bit of a decent spritz to it. Had better pale ales.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Golden-orange color and fairly transparent. Nice inch and half of off-white head.
There is the normal citrus scent, but it also has a sweet note; like honeysuckle. Unexpected, but pleasant.
Taste: The foam is soft, like a cappuccino, which is nice. Lightly bitter and a honey flavor. The aftertaste is a nice bitterness, but not long lasting.
Palate: Soft, almost a creamy, medium body with light carbonation.
I see myself grabbing a couple 6ers of this for a party night. Good, solid flavor for a session beer. The soft mouthfeel surprised me but I like it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is caramel malts and a hint of nuttiness and hops. The flavor is sweet caramel malts and a decent hop bitterness in the finish. Closer to an EPA than an APA, a decent ale either way.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is a cloudy orange beer w/ a thick white head. The nose is dusty and a bit citric. It’s a medium bodied beer w/ medium carbonation and firm, bitterness in the finish. It sounds OK on paper but really, this beer is very mediocre, being neither drinkable nor particularly flavorful. It’s OK though.
