Heavy grape, melon, and citrus flavors crash together in the charade that is this pale ale. The hoppiness is subdued and muzzled. The head has a soapy veneer. Mildly watery with a lobotomized mouthfeel. Feels like a PBR after a weight lifting class.

Really not a good tasting beer at all. Itís too bad, I really want to enjoy it. Iím going to have another go at their Belgian White, IPA, and Amber Ale and see if they are any better.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a slightly hazy golden orange perhaps close to yellow and almost transparent body with a two finger white foamy head that dies fairly quickly perhaps closer to a minute and leaving a fairly nice spectacular lacing. The smell had a somewhat malty and fairly bitter hoppy showing a decent bitter aromatic presence. The taste had a balanced sort of bittersweetness that is absolutely totally spectacular, sweet sort of malty aftertaste and no finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a fairly light, and somewhat sesssionable, carbonation is very smooth (holy crap, very smooth, good for Double Take). Overall, this is one of their better brews.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with very little head on it. Nose is slightly hoppy with just a hint at some floral elements, but the hops smell old. Taste is light and somewhat clean, though that is offset by the old taste of the hops. Could be so much better, but doesnít make it.

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Pretty standard looking, smelling and tasting American ale. Light amber color, drinks with even tempo, primarily moderate malt and lightly hopped. (#5392, 12/1/2013)

Bottle. Not good, gross swill. Very bread, heavy malt, unbalance, lack any type of citrus. Blah. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BucannonXC5 (829) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Firestone pint glass From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $13.99 (w/ VONS card) for a variety 12-pack Purchased: Oct. 18, 2013 Consumed: Oct. 18, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a honey caramel rather clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki white head. Sporadic spots of foamy white lacing along the sides. Above average retention on the top on the way down. Smelled mainly citrus hops with sour lemon coming through. Initially reminded me of lemon drop candy, although not as good. Also seems to be Cascade hops. Earthy, grassy hops. Buttery as well. Tasted pretty much like the smell, which was also what I expected. That earthy, grainy, grassy hops. Buttery, lemon, honey and a bit of iced tea. Surprisingly a strong bite of alcohol. Light-to-medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, bitter finish. An OK pale ale. Nothing special about this beer.

Random bottle @ our tasting. Light amber pour with a white head. Nose is grassy and vegetal. Meh. Bread, some straw, cardboard, and a touch of pine. Weird citrus note. The taste is quite vegetal. Some citrus character, bread, straw, and a bit of cardboard. Light bitterness and grass.

355mL thanks to Chris. Clear deep orange pour with thick lacing. Nose is heavy cheese and dust moving to something really strange like Capri Sun, artificial citrus juice. Taste is dusty, cantaloupe. Dry, dusty, mealy finish. Nah.

Thanks Chris for the beer, part of tasting, easy to drink pale ale, not too intense but cold and easy to drink.

Bottle, 12oz. An amber colored beer topped by a decent, off-white head. The aroma is a bit malty for my likings, at least considering itís and APA. Some citrusy scents too, maybe a touch of grass and tropical fruits. In the mouth too itís too malty, and way too chewy for an APA, Iíd also like more bitterness going on. Still, itís a quite nice beer, not just within my definition of a pale ale. Full body, with a pleasant level of carbonation. A beer I wonít miss, but wonít have any problems drinking more of either. 130630
