A Medium Bodied Amber Colored Pale Ale. This beer is well balanced between the sweetness imparted by the roasted caramel malt and light bitterness imparted by the traditional English variety of hops. Typical of English Style Ales, it has light carbonation with a pleasant hoppy aroma.

Douberd (3727) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2015
(Diamond Bear Pale Ale) Bottle 355 ml, from vipinvelp. thanks! New US state. Served into a shaker. Dark orange colour on the body, little activity in its clear body. One finger of creamy off-white head on top, with okay retention. Lots of caramem malts on the aroma, light toffee, light grass, hints of hops. Nice taste, caramel, toffee, cookie dough, some hops, metallic finish wiht light bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, good carbonation, mildly dry on the palate. Not bad, honest pale ale that can be drunk the whole day out in the garden.

weihenweizen (2495) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle from BVery, poured into a shaker. Hazy deep golden with small white head. Aroma is pilsner malt, light body, light carbonation, and pretty good small-bubble lacing. Taste is caramel malt, hay, and some herbal hops. Not my thing.

A nod to my home state brewer Diamond Bear. You donít really think of Arkansas for beer, maybe for wine, but certainly not beer. It pours with a thick head. Lacing lingers and lingers. It has a copper color to it, but the aroma is pretty stout. Itís not very enticing. The aroma is even bitter. But itís good that itís not a total indicator of the beer, The beer isnít quite as bitter as it smells. Itís bitter, but not so much that itís undesirable. I like it. Iím not a fan of the style, but itís actually pretty good. The more I drink, the better it feels to the palate. Itís a roasted hoppiness. Itís spicy, but itís also light. Itís strange. But itís good. Overall, itís a good beer. A little more sweetness and it would be amazing.

Bottle. Murky orange amber pour with a small spotty white head. Earthy, caramel sweetness, some cardboard. I donít like English-style pales typically, and this doesnít help to change that.
