The aroma is sweet with grainy malt and hops. The appearance is light amber with a nice head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall I like it but dont love it.

aroma is a bit back washed, but the mouth feel is nice deep sense of caramel malts but with a slight touch of corn. however the overall of the beer works quite well. I enjoy this one.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2008 Aroma entre o fermento e frutas, lembrando abacaxi. Sabor balanceado entre o amargo e o doce. Espuma duradoura, espessa e cremosa.

Semi hazy amber with a thin white dissipating head. Aroma of sweet malt, earthy hops and corn. Taste is strange and is woodsy, malty and corny. APA my ass. Astringent body with a corny aftertaste.

Light golden color with off-white head. Lightly toasted malt and dry grass aromas. Hints of sweet citrus. Nothing too exciting. Dry honey and rye flavors. Floor malt tastes with a mild honey linger. A boring pale ale in my book. Hints of things here and there, just nothing that shines through.

Pours clear honey amber w/ thin eggshell white head. Spicy slightly metallic hoppy aroma as if it were a pilsner. Heavily grainy flavor, esp retronasal. Touch of malt sweetness. Good, not amazing. Interesting.

12oz bottle. Nose has some mild floral ginger notes, Belgian-style yeast esters present along with some some sweet honey. Fairly banal flavor, some mildly sweet honey malts, some creaminess to the texture, a mild candy sugar note as well. Simple, sweet, lightly hoppy. Forgettable but very easily drinkable.
