When I hear pale ale, 4 names that come to mind are Sierra Nevada, Stone, Vino’s, and DIAMOND BEAR. Great copper color, amazing taste. You can definitely tell the purity in the water used. Just a damn good pale ale.

From bottle. Malty, darker colored pale ale. Not much hop aroma, but still nicely bitter to balance the malt sweetness. Good malt flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery in Little Rock. Pours a crystal clear, orange-copper colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is lighter with some caramel, bread, a light grassy spice, and some citrus. A touch of toastiness to the malts. Flavor has a nice toastiness to the bready caramels up front with a moderate sweetness. Light citrus in the middle with a bit of a spicy grass that balances the malts well. Finishes with a kick of toast and caramel while drying nicely with a clean, light bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent English Pale Ale. Lightly hopped, but clean and balanced with a nice toasty caramel maltiness. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy rusty orange brown. Nice wispy lasting head. Nose is caramel and buttery. Taste is flavorful with caramel and malt, very mild bitterness. Taste is dry and short. Personally a big fan of EPAs, quite drinkable and enjoyable, especially with a slab of English cheese. Quaff Score 7 / 10
