Tan amber, ok head. This one is a grain-forward pale ale, with clean crisp hoppiness. Appealing, freshly-milled cereal grains in the aroma and flavor. Medium to full body--quite enjoyable throughout.

Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip #50. 12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Lexington. Pours an amber color with a thin frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of pale malt, herbal hops. The taste is stone fruits, citrus hops, pale malts and a slight corny note. Thin bodied.

Secret Krampus beer #7, thanks Peter. Another quality selection.
Pours golden, slightly hazy, fluffy white head, and not a lot of lacing or retention (though itís a little better than the pale lagers that Iíve been opening). Aroma is grass, lemon, and sweet oxidized malt. Flavor is sweet and stale hops with some bitterness and a touch of cardboard. No idea when this was bottled but it certainly didnít hold up well. Medium body with a decent amount of carbonation. Meh at best.

Quick, clean little pale ale. Mild nose of grains and grains. Light bodied with a decent carbonation. Fairly dry malt flavors and a clean, dry finish thats tame.neohippie2 delivered this one. Thanks!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pint on tap at Hollerís, for $4.50. Clear golden orange color, little sort of bubbly white head, fades to a little amount around the edges, doesnít leave any lace. At first impression, I thought this was a lager. Very bready, malt forward flavor, light caramel malt, minimal hop characteristic. If this is a pale ale, itís a very cheap, totally un-craft pale ale. Medium body. Soft, stronger carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Mild bitter, lighter sweet taste. Sub-par pale.

Pours a pale golden color. Smells like malt and hops, pretty standard. Tastes bitter but is a decent flavor. It is beer.

On draft pored a bright yellow color with a white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma was a mild grain and mild hops. Flavor wise you get some malt base. And some mild hops. But I get a bigger Jose and flavor if caramel. Medium bodied.

Draft - pours pale amber with white head and decent lacing. Nose is dough and cheese. Flavor adds caramel, light smokiness, and herbal hops. Not what I expected. Creamy body in the English style. Light bitterness and sweetness. In the words of flava flave: donít believe the hype, d, d, donít believe the hype, boyeeeee. Meh.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with a moderate head. Taste is slightly bitter, and really off-putting. It tastes cheap and easy (insert "your mom" joke here). Not a fan.
