Copper body with an almost tan layer of head. Big pine tree and grapefruit smell. Almost sweet at first, malty, dry pine bitterness at the end. Crisp texture, moderate to higher carbonation, medium body. Solid pale ale. Perfect summer drinkiní beer.

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.

"Big time citrus hop aroma and flavor compensate a little for the overabundance of biscuit malt. Pretty well balanced between the malt and a grapefruit like bitterness."

drsordr (1269) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle pour deep copper penny with amber. Nose sweet malt, slight juicy fruit, hint of dank hop. Taste dank malt and slight vegetal up front. Mid palate light grainy malt, then reasonable long bitter finish. Not off putting, but nothing exciting.

AmEricanbrew (6054) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Clear amber color with lasting ivory head. Pine, citrus, honey malt aromas. ! Medium body. Muted pine hop flavors with a lightly sweet pale malt base brew____nicely drying finish---not bad.

jackl (5063) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle from Guess Who? Deep orange pour with a modest white head. Big sticky caramel malt nose. Roasted malt, bread. Maybe some candied orange. The taste is similarly caramel-focussed. A bit of spicy hoppiness, leaf pile and tobacco. A touch of citrusy tang. Light body, active carbonation. This does nothing for me.

Tap--- Hello Arkansas! Pours a light copper color with a small, off white head. Caramel and a slight hop aroma. Solid caramel and sweet flavors with a soft touch of hops. Medium body. Nice work and feel of an English Pale Ale. Cregeens Pub in North Little Rock.
